CITY will be away to Middlesbrough in the third round of the FA Cup, sponsored by E.ON, in January.
The tie will take place on the first weekend of the New Year with a date and kick-off to be announced on mcfc.co.uk as soon as television schedules have been confirmed. Ticket details will then be published.
An away tie against a bogey side is not the ideal draw you want.
That said, it is one that we should progress from.
