Blues (maybe) v WBA (maybe) in Cup

Blues (maybe) v WBA (maybe) in Cup

Blues possibly face a trip to local rivals West Brom in the fourth round of the FA Cup, if Blues can beat Torquay and the Baggies beat Reading in the replays.

The cup replays take place a week on Tuesday, Blues facing Torquay at St. Andrews after their 0-0 draw at Plainmoor, and West Brom travelling to the Madejski Stadium after their 1-1 draw at the Hawthorns.

If both sides beat their lower league opposition - the Baggies facing the tougher test, playing a side only four places below them in the footballing pyramid, and away to boot - the derby will take place on the weekend of the 28th/29th January.

In other draws, the winner of the Burton vs Manchester United replay will face Wolves at the Molineux, Port Vale travel to Villa Park to take on Aston Villa, and the winner of the Stoke City/Tamworth replay will be at home to the winner of the Barnsley/Walsall replay. If minnows Nuneaton manage to overcome Middlesbrough in their Riverside replay, they will travel to the Ricoh Arena to face Coventry.
