Cardiff City were handed an uninspiring FA Cup draw against Sheffield United or Middlesborough with the two sides playing out the only draw of the previous round.


Cardiff really wanted a home draw and had a decent chance of pulling either Manchester United or Chelsea.


However they will either face a club in the same division, or a relatively unexciting tie against Gareth Southgate’s Middlesborough. The game will also be played away from home with a long trip to North England for Cardiff City’s travelling fans.


A semi-final match at Wembley is the prize and Cardiff City certainly have a chance of reaching that goal. Sheffield United are struggling in the Championship while Middlesborough are inconsistent and could count themselves somewhat lucky to escape with a 0-0 draw against Sheffield United.


After West Brom away, that was the least appealing of all the possible draws. However, thats waht we’ve got and it represents a realistic chance to progress. We will be underdogs for the game, for the first time in this year’s cup run but that often suits our style.


Bring it on….!
