Latics were one of the last teams drawn by Ruud Gullit and Paul Ince during the live draw on BBC1.

And it means two trips to the Hawthorns in a matter of days, with Latics already scheduled to play a league game there on Boxing Day.

The tie will hold special significance for Graeme Jones, the West Brom assistant manager who was No.2 to Roberto Martinez when Latics won the famous trophy in 2013.
