FA Cup 3rd round draw

City have been drawn at home to Nottingham Forest in the Third Round of the FA Cup sponsored by E.ON.

The tie will be played on the weekend of January 3rd/4th, and will be the first time the two clubs have faced each other in the cup since Forest’s Championship-winning season in 1977/78.


Definitely a tie we should progress through as we bid to make a dent in this year's competition.

We've not come up against Forest for a while, but I remember some good games against them in particular during the mid-late 90's.

vote it up!

Last time I went to Maine Road it finished 3-3 with Ian Woan scoring a flukey late equaliser :) Good times!

Can't see much past a sound thrashing from you boys this time round though, the gulf has grown somewhat!
