Match Highlights View More Below

City were forced to settle for a draw after Blackburn Rovers fought-back from a goal down to earn a replay.

The Blues, who ended the game with ten men following Dedryck Boyata’s sending off, are now facing a fixture pile-up after failing to put their Championship opponents to the sword at Ewood Park - despite taking a first-half lead through Alvaro Negredo.

That said, Rovers probably did enough to earn another crack at the Blues who were far from their best in a scrappy cup tie. 

After waiting 42 years to win the FA Cup, City have been to the final twice in the last three years, appearing five times at Wembley including semi-finals and a Charity Shield match – it was no more than a distant dream to most Blues that one day, the home of English football would become something of a second home for their team in recent times.
