Draw hands Lee Johnson's side a potential away draw.

City know a trip to Premier League opponents awaits in the Emirates FA Cup fourth round - if they can overcome Fleetwood Town in next week's replay.

Lee Johnson's men face a trip to either Burnley or Sunderland - who drew 0-0 at the Stadium of Light on Saturday - if they win at Highbury Stadium on January 17th.

Sunderland, managed by David Moyes, are currently 18th in the Premier League, while Burnley - with Tom Heaton and Sam Vokes in their ranks and Sean Dyche in charge - are up in 12th.

Head coach Lee Johnson said: "We still have a job to do against Fleetwood and the replay at their place is going to be a very tough proposition indeed. Make no mistake, we cannot afford to take them lightly or look too far ahead."

If City progress in the replay, the fourth round tie would take place over the weekend of January 27-30, forcing a postponement of the league match at Aston Villa.
