Nottingham Forest could face Premier League giants Manchester City if they overcome Swansea City in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup.

The Reds will need to go to Swansea City and win first but the winners of that tie will play either the Citizens or League Two outfit Cheltenham Town.

Forest have earned their place in the last 32 of the competition after beating Cardiff City 1-0 on Saturday.

Lyle Taylor’s goal – his fifth of the season – was enough to win the day for Chris Hughton’s men and set up a trip to Swansea.

It’s the prospect of a tie with City that has got the juices flowing though and supporters have taken to Twitter.

Cheltenham set up the game with Pep Guardiola’s team after an extra-time win over Mansfield Town on Sunday.


Michael Duff will relish his team going up against City but the Premier League outfit will be overwhelming favourties.

Forest have a sizeable squad and that could help them cope with a run in the FA Cup.

Hughton made several changes at the weekend and for large periods the Reds still looked comfortable.

Here is what Forest fans were saying after the draw threw up a potential clash with the ex-Champions of the Premier League.
