City drawn against Blackburn in FA Cup third round

City will travel to Blackburn Rovers in the third round of the FA Cup.

The last time the two teams met in England's premier cup competition, Blackburn ran out 2-0 victors at Ewood Park in 2007. 

However, the tie could prove a good omen as the Blues comfortably saw off Rovers on the way to FA Cup glory in 1969, recording a 4-1 victory in the fifth round. 

Ties will be played on the weekend of 4 and 5 January 2014. 

We’ll have all the ticket details once the date and time are confirmed on mcfc.co.uk.
