Birmingham will be the away team at their own stadium when they face Coventry in the FA Cup fourth round after the Sky Blues' third round replay win against Bristol Rovers.

Coventry agreed a one-year groundshare deal at St Andrew's after failing to reach agreement with rugby side Wasps to remain at the Ricoh Arena.

Instead, the League One team have played their games 22 miles away in Birmingham this season and the Championships club's fans now face the prospect of standing in the away end at their own ground after Coventry were drawn as the home team.
