Date confirmed for Emirates FA Cup tie

City’s Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round fixture has been selected for live broadcast by BT Sport on Sunday, February 17th (1pm KO).

Lee Johnson’s men will host either Shrewsbury Town or Wolves in the last 16 tie, depending on the outcome of their replay next week.

City have already beaten Premier League Huddersfield Town and Sky Bet Championship rivals Bolton Wanderers to earn their place in the Fifth Round for the first time in 18 years.

The FA Cup fixture means City’s home Sky Bet Championship clash against Birmingham City has been moved to Tuesday, February 26th (7.45pm KO).

The league match between City and QPR at Ashton Gate has also been rescheduled for Tuesday, February 12th (7.45pm KO) due to the R’s potential televised FA Cup Fifth Round tie against Watford on Friday, February 15th.
