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.

A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.

On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
Happy Highbury as Town Head to Wembley by clivebleedingthomas
As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
