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.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.

When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
