Town and Coventry Ball 48 in Tonight's FA Cup Draw
Monday, 2nd Dec 2019 11:56
Town and Coventry City will be ball number 48 in this evening FA Cup round three draw, the Blues and Sky Blues having drawn 1-1 at St Andrew’s yesterday.
The replay is expected to be played at Portman Road on Tuesday 10th December with confirmation likely at some point today.
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.
The third round sees Premier League and Championship clubs enter the competition and manager Paul Lambert is hoping the Blues are paired with a top name.
"If we’re fortunate to get through we might just get one of the big ones, which I think would be great for everybody concerned, the fans, the players, the whole club,” he said following yesterday's match.
Third round ties will take place over the weekend of January 4th. Town’s scheduled league game for that day is already set to be postponed as Fleetwood, who were due to visit Portman Road that afternoon, are through to round three.
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.

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.
