Millwall and Burnley lock horns at The New Den to guarantee First Division representation in the quarter finals of the FA Cup.
Dennis Wise's Lions will be hoping to make home advantage count but something will have to give if the tie is to be settled at the first attempt.
Both teams are unbeaten in 2004 and their records will be laid on the line for the fifth round tussle in the capital.
The Lions set up their Valentine's Day date with Burnley by comfortably overcoming Telford United in midweek in their belatedly staged fourth round contest.
Millwall's last quarter final appearance was in 1985 and they will have Danny Dichio to spearhead the attack following his fine form since his arrival from West Brom.
Andy Marshall was forced to miss the trip to Telford, having not been registered in time, but he is available to face Burnley.
Mark McCammon is seeking his first appearance of the season after claiming a place on the bench at Telford following his recovery from a long-term knee injury.
Burnley are seeking back-to-back appearances in the last eight after they were knocked out by Division One rivals Watford at that stage last term.
Clarets boss Stan Ternent has a virtually fully-fit squad to select from with only Graham Branch absent with a calf problem.
Robbie Blake is back from suspension while Arthur Gnohere has shaken off a hamstring complaint.
But, if there is to be a victor on Saturday, recent trends will have to be broken as the last four meetings between these teams have finished all-square.
