FA Youth Cup match preview: City v Coventry

City's under-18s continue their quest for silverware in the FA Youth Cup with a home tie against Coventry on Wednesday night.

Jason Wilcox's side host the Midlands outfit, as reward for comfortably despatching Oxford United 2-0 in the previous round.

On that day, goals from Marcus Wood and Bersant Celina proved enough to secure progression to the next stage.

Coventry earned their place in round four of this year's competition with a 3-2 extra-time victory at Bournemouth.

The winners of this encounter will receive a home tie against either Mansfield Town or Stoke to be played on the weekend of Saturday 31 January.

City last lifted the trophy in 2008 and will seek to repeat that feat this time around, having been knocked-out at the fifth-round stage last season.

Kick-off for this game is at 7pm GMT at the Academy Stadium on Wednesday 14 January. Entrance is free, and gates are open from 6pm with tickets available for collection at the Media entrance (via North Gate). Supporter parking is available on Yellow Car Park.

We'll have live updates on Twitter and a match report after full-time. Highlights will also be available on the website in due course.
