Bristol City will welcome Championship rivals Fulham to Ashton Gate whilst Bristol Rovers are away at Peterborough United.

Ties are due to be played from Friday 7 January to Monday 10 January but with other ties such as Chelsea versus Chesterfield, don’t expect either match to be chosen for television coverage by the BBC or ITV.

As a result of the draw, Rovers’ League Two match with Barrow scheduled for January 8 will now be rearranged as a result of their progression.

The draw was hardly one that fans excited given the Robins have already played Fulham at home this season whilst the Gas already made a visit to London Road this year.

City held the Cottagers to a 1-1 draw as Kasey Palmer cancelled out Aleksandr Mitrovic’s 50th strike in the last meeting. Rovers meanwhile were held to a goalless draw in January on their way to automatic promotion from League One last season.

A slight bit of intrigue for fans of Rovers is that they could line up against their former striker Jonson Clarke-Harris, who excelled since leaving the Memorial Stadium.
