Spurs Draw Coventry in the FA Cup

Tom Dulat

A visit from Coventry City is on tap for Tottenham Hotspur as they enter the FA Cup.

The FA Cup is back again! The third-round proper matches have been set after today's FA Cup draw. Tottenham Hotspur will host Coventry City on Saturday, January 5th at 3 PM GMT (10 AM ET). The match will not be televised, according to Tottenham.

Coventry City currently plays in League 1, sitting in 15th place on the table. The FA Cup tie will wrap the end of a busy holidays period for Tottenham Hotspur. In the fourteen days previous Spurs will face Stoke City, Aston Villa, Sunderland, and Reading in the league.

The Sky Blues were relegated from The Championship last year, and have thus far struggled in League 1. The team is managed by Mark Robins, formerly of Barnsley, who took over in September. The team has been led by Nottingham Forest-loanee David McGoldrick, who has tallied eleven goals already in the league. John Fleck, 21, is a former Rangers prospect who is driving the Coventry midfield.

Other standout matches from the upcoming third round include Swansea hosting Arsenal, Southampton hosting Chelsea, and West Ham hosting Manchester United, all rematches of great league games that have already occurred this season. Also, if Spurs or QPR are involved in a third round replay, the Premier League match scheduled for Monday, January 14 at Loftus Road will revert to Saturday, January 12, kick-off 12.45pm.
