FA Cup Third Round Draw on Monday
Thursday, 28th Nov 2019 10:41
Town will be ball number 48 in Monday’s FA Cup round three draw if they’re still in the competition following Sunday afternoon’s second-round tie against Coventry City at St Andrew’s (KO 2pm).
The draw for round three takes place at the Etihad Stadium at 7pm live on BBC Two and the iPlayer when former Arsenal captain Tony Adams and ex-Manchester City defender Micah Richards will be pulling the balls from the bowl.
Third round ties will take place over the weekend of January 4th. If Town are involved then their League One game at home to Fleetwood will be postponed.
The last time Town weren't involved in round three of the FA Cup, which they won for the only time in 1978, was in the 1955/56 season when they were defeated 3-1 away by Peterborough United at the first-round stage.
The Blues won their first FA Cup tie in nearly 10 years at the 16th attempt in round one when Alan Judge's last-gasp goal saw them to a 1-0 replay victory over Lincoln at Sincil Bank.

A fixture that started as a mid-table game but ended as one that would be marked by having special T-shirts printed to commemorate it - this was the Demolition Derby.

The first leg had been played in the three-sided Portman Road, with no North Stand. Circumstances that many fans thought contributed to our relegation that season.
