The Nigerian International scored as Stoke City defeated Rochdale who were at home in the FA Cup fourth round tie with a ticket to the next round.

A stunning volley by Bojan after four minutes on the clock gave Mark Hughe’s side the lead, Stephen Ireland added a second from close range shortly after half-time.

Victor Moses netted Stoke’s third with an excellent curled finish from a narrow angle, while Rhys Bennett struck a late consolation with 11 minutes to go before Jonathan Walters wrapped up the win in injury time.

Hughes will now face his former club at Ewood Park for Stoke’s fifth-round tie which will be played on either
February 14 and 15.

Liverpool, should they get past Bolton Wanderers in their replay, will face Crystal Palace away.

Bradford City, conquerors of Chelsea in remarkable circumstances, will face Sunderland or Fulham.

Elsewhere, there will be a Midlands derby at Villa Park where Aston Villa will welcome Leicester City, Blackburn
Rovers meet Stoke or Rochdale, who play on Monday, West Brom face West Ham and Derby host Reading.
