Ah, the romance of the FA Cup!

That went out of the window years ago and all we are left with, certainly in the early rounds, are a couple of meaningless and generally unwanted games.

Will be interesting to see how City approach the Cup this year.  Home ties are unlikely to attract much of a crowd, so not much in the way of revenue.

What sort of team will we put out, given injuries and lack of cover in some areas.  Could it look like this......

Moore

Fabio  Manga  Tamas / Oshilaja   John

Ameobi O'Keefe  Dikgacoi  Whitts (c)

Macheda  Revell

It's live on s4c at 6pm Sunday so we could be looking at our lowest ever crowd at this Stadium.

Be going some to get fewer than for Colchester a year ago, but it could happen. Perhaps we will get exciting transfer news this week, which will galvanise support?

Revell is still on loan at Wigan. I'd play Jones - quite likely last time we'd see him anyway.

Can't see Jones playing. An injury to him would be far too costly to City.

Anthony Gerrard picked up an injury early on last time out, so he's unlikely to return for the Shrews.

That's a shame. Craig Conway got a good reception at CCS last Saturday, but for Gerrard, it would have been............."interesting"

I thought that John might have started ahead of Malone, but that's not a bad side.

2 - 0 City
