Preview – FA Cup Fifth Round Replay: Manchester City v Huddersfield Town

Man City Huddersfield

Following the rollercoaster fifth round ties which witnessed a non-league side getting into the quarter finals for the first time since 1914, there is still one replay that still needs to be sorted out.

It will also be the last replay of this year’s FA Cup, as new rules mean that the quarter finals will go to extra time and penalties in the event of a draw. Huddersfield, who are currently third in the Championship, managed to hold Man City, who are currently third in the Premier League, to a goalless draw. Now the Terriers are making their way to the City of Manchester Stadium to see if another FA Cup upset can be achieved.

The winner will be making a trip to the Riverside Stadium to take on Middlesbrough, who are still in the FA Cup despite terrible form in the league, having not won a Premier League match in 2017 yet.

Manchester City v Huddersfield Town is on BBC One at 19.30 (kick-off 19.45).
