Town or Lincoln at Coventry in FA Cup Second Round
Monday, 11th Nov 2019 19:18
Town will face fellow League One side Coventry City away at St Andrew's in the second round of the FA Cup if they beat Lincoln City at Sincil Bank in their first round replay on Wednesday 20th November.
If Town progress against Lincoln then they will face Coventry at St Andrew's on two successive weekends.
Second round ties will be played over the weekend of Saturday 30th November, while the Blues travel to take on the Sky Blues in League One the following Saturday.
The FA Cup game appears likely to be on the Sunday, or perhaps the Friday, with Birmingham having a Championship home game against Millwall on the Saturday. The Monday seems less likely as Town will have a Leasing.com Trophy tie that midweek.
The Sky Blues beat Colchester United 2-0 at the JobServe Community Stadium in round one on Saturday.
Town and Coventry have never previously met in the FA Cup, although they have drawn one another in the League Cup on four occasions, most recently in 2000 when the Blues won 2-1 at Portman Road, and once in the Simod Cup.
This evening's draw took place at Oaklands Park, the home ground of Chichester City, who are the lowest-ranked club left in the competition, with Dion Dublin and Mark Bright pulling the balls from the bowl.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
