City will play Rotherham United in the FA Cup third round.

The Blues were drawn at home to the Championship side, currently 20th in the table.

However, Paul Warne's side have been in fine form of late, losing just once in eight games and playing some excellent football in the process.

The teams have only met once before in the competition - back in 1979 when the Millers pulled off a shock 0-0  draw at Maine Road.

City then travelled to Millmoor for the replay and won 4-2.

Connections include Shaun Goater, Gerry Gow and Nigel Johnson. 

The teams have only met 11 times competitively and the Blues have never lost.

Though Rotherham and City drew 1-1 in the Football League Trophy last season, the last meeting in the league was back in 2002, with Ali Benarbia scoring in a 1-1 draw.

The tie will be played over the weekend of January 4, 5, 6 and 7th with the date, time and ticket details to be confirmed in due course.
