BRISTOL CITY TO HOST HUDDERSFIELD IN FA CUP


BRISTOL City will play Premier League side Huddersfield Town at Ashton Gate in the third round of the FA Cup.

The sides have only met once before in the cup, which was back in the 1919-20 season.

The last meeting between the clubs came in March 2017, when City ran out 4-0 winners in the Championship match.

AFC Bournemouth were also handed a home tie. They will face fellow Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion.
