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.

It's All Going Wrong, Again by sam_n1
There seems to be a pattern emerging of a consistent fall in form as this season starts to get up and running, especially during the Christmas fixtures. But who or what is down to?
The Grim Experience of Becoming a Socially-Distanced Supporter by chazza
Second only to the terrible the footballing performance against Portsmouth comes the grim experience of becoming a 'socially-distanced' supporter.
Season's Beatings by Moggasknockdown
It is a bitterly disheartening experience supporting Ipswich. At every sliding doors moment in our recent history we have taken the wrong path, at every opportunity for schadenfreude an ex-player will decisively score, or create or generally remind us all that they are happier now, away from the depressing, soul-destroying experience that was their Ipswich career.
