CITY DRAWN AT HOME TO SUNDERLAND OR FULHAM IN THE FIFTH ROUND

26 January 2015

After their amazing win at Chelsea at the weekend, Phil Parkinson's Bantams have been given a home tie against either Premier League side Sunderland or Championship club Fulham following Monday's F.A Cup Fifth Round draw.

On the same day the Bantams produced arguably one of the greatest F.A Cup shocks of all time at Stamford Bridge, Sunderland and Fulham drew 0-0 in their original fourth round tie at Stadium of Light this Saturday.

The two sides will now meet a week on Tuesday (3 February 2015) at Craven Cottage for the replay.

Fresh from City's dramatic victory at Chelsea, the fifth round draw was shown live in the 1911 Club at the Coral Windows Stadium in front of joint-chairman Mark Lawn, a selection of players and supporters, plus members of the media.

Fifth round ties are scheduled for the weekend 14/15 February 2015. This means City's Sky Bet League 1 fixture at Coventry City's Ricoh Arena will now have to be rearranged.

Sunderland's previous visit to Valley Parade came back in August 2003, while Fulham haven't travelled up to BD8 since 1994.

Ticket details for City's fifth round tie will be announced in due course.
