Fixture change: Manchester City’s FA Cup fifth round game selected for TV

Manchester City will visit either Middlesbrough or Newport County in the FA Cup fifth round, with the tie today given a date and kick-off time.

The match has been selected by television by BT Sport, meaning it will be a 5.30pm kick-off on Saturday 16 February.

City will find out their opponent on February 5th when Middlesbrough and Newport play their fourth round replay in Newport.

Boro are coached by former City nemesis Tony Pulis, and currently sit 5th in the Championship, giving them a fighting chance of promotion to the Premier League.

Mike Flynn’s Newport are not so fortunate as they are languishing in 13th in League Two, the fourth tier of English football.
