20 years on from the 3rd Round tie against Bolton Wanderers that kickstarted the greatest six months in Coventry City history, how Micky Adams, his team and the long-suffering fans could do with something similar, starting at Bristol City on Saturday.
The home side however are flying high in League One and have an impressive record at Ashton Gate, losing just once in the league there this season.
Micky Adams: 'Going on current form I think we go down there as underdogs.
'It is a big game and one which we have all got to look forward to.
'The boys have got to be up for it because Bristol are a confident team at the minute.
'Luckily for me, I saw them earlier in the season, so we know what to expect.'
Bristol City manager Gary Johnson: 'Micky Adams is a good manager and he will always come through because he is thick-skinned, like most of us have to be.
'He had a good spell there and now they are going through an unfortunate period.
'But he's a fighter and he will be hanging on in there and I have got every confidence he will turn it around.'
Louis Carey should be fit to face his old club after twisting his ankle on Monday.
Striker Steve Brooker has a calf problem but should also play.
The experienced midfielder has scored four times in his last six games.
Marcus Hall has not trained since the Leeds game due to a virus.
Luke Steele is set to extend his loan stay at the Ricoh Arena until the end of the season.
The former Norwich City man has endeared himself to fans with some all-action displays but needs to start doing more of what he was signed for and hit the back of the net.
The two sides have not met since 1979, when Bristol City were 1-0 winners in a First Division game at Ashton Gate.
The Sky Blues won the last FA Cup meeting, 2-1 at Highfield Road in 1976.
The Sky Blues are at home to Crystal Palace next Saturday while Bristol City have a Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash with Brighton in midweek.
