EMIRATES FA CUP THIRD ROUND: United or Forest Green to face Cardiff City

Opponents for next week's replay winners confirmed

2 December 2019

Carlisle United or Forest Green Rovers will face Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium in the third round of this season's Emirates FA Cup competition.

The Blues or the Greens meet at Brunton Park next Tuesday (tbc pending TV broadcast announcements) where they will battle out the right to progress to the next stage having drawn 2-2 at the New Lawn on Saturday.

Championship mid-table outfit Cardiff City appointed former-Millwall favourite Neil Harris as their new manager midway through November following an indifferent run of results. 

It's almost 19 years since the Blues met the Bluebirds and, should United make it through, they go there knowing that they have yet to win an away game against this team.

United have drawn five times in 19 outings against the Welsh outfit on their own turf, with the hosts running out as winners in the remainder of those meetings.

We'll get reaction from Carlisle boss Chris Beech to this draw at his weekly press conference.

Ties to be played weekend commencing Friday 3 January.
