Coventry City will face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Friday 24 January at 19:45 after the FA Cup tie was chosen for live television coverage on BT Sport.

The Sky Blues will be able to add £144,000 to their 40% share of the gate receipts although the new timing of the game will frustrate those who wished to make a day of their trip to London and may now have to decide between not travelling or taking time off work.

City’s scheduled League One game at ‘home’ against Carlisle United on Thursday 23 January at Sixfields has been postponed with a new date to be decided at a later date.
