City have been handed a home tie against Burnley in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup.
The Clarets will make the short journey down the A66 to take on City after causing the shock of the third round when they dumped out Manchester United 4-3 after extra-time.
Terry Pashley's side do have pedigree in the FA Youth Cup, having reached the semi-final of the competition last season but will come up against a City side that were convincing in their 3-1 win over Sunderland in the last round.
This encounter will be a repeat of the 1968 third round tie which Burnley won on the road to their most recent Youth Cup triumph.
It remains to be seen where the match will take place but we will let you know as soon as possible.
Ties must be played before 19 January.
