Barnsley will visit Premier League champions Manchester City in the sixth round of the FA Cup.

The Reds will visit City’s Etihad Stadium over the weekend of Saturday, March 9 and Sunday, March 10.

The Reds booked their place in the quarter-finals thanks to a 3-1 victory at League One side MK Dons on Saturday.

Chris Dagnall opened the scoring just three minutes in before Marlon Harewood cemented the visitors’ dominance after 19 minutes.

Dean Bowditch made it a nervous final half-hour for their Championship opponents but Dagnell’s second in added time ensured Barnsley’s progression before Alan Smith saw red late on for Karl Robinson’s men.

City saw off Leeds United 4-0 in the fifth round today to book their date with the Reds.
