FA CUP Cheltenham draw Man City at home

FA CupCheltenham Town manager Michael Duff celebrated his 43rd birthday yesterday and was rewarded with his side being drawn at home to Premier League giants Manchester City in the FA Cup fourth round.

Duff – who made over 300 appearances for the Robins as a player – is a popular boss at Whaddon Road, where he has been manager since 2018.

Cheltenham are pushing for promotion in League Two – in fifth place – while Pep Guardiola’s Man City are fifth... in the Premier League.

The tie was first out of the “hat” drawn by Peter Crouch.

Next up? Promotion-chasing AFC Bournemouth at home to John Yems’ sixth League Two Crawley Town, who knocked out a weakened Leeds 3-0 on Sunday.

Ryan Lowe’s League Plymouth Argyle will travel to Premier League basement side Sheffield United, who only just edged past Bristol Rovers 3-2 at the Memorial Ground at the weekend.

In two all-Championship ties, Bristol City travel to Millwall while Swansea City host Nottingham Forest.

Fourth round ties are set to take place over the extended weekend of January 23/24.
