Cardiff drawn away at Chelsea in FA Cup

Last updated : 24 January 2010 By Michael Morris
The Bluebirds will have to overcome Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in round 5 on the weekend on February 13th / 14th after the teams were paired in this afternoons draw.

Cardiff have not faced Chelsea since a League Cup tie in 1986 at Ninian Park which Cardiff won 2 - 1. The last game at Stamford Bridge was a 2 - 0 Chelsea win in the old Division 2 in 1983.

This game is going to heap a whole load of attention, and quite probably TV cash on Cardiff City as they face one of their biggest challenges in years.

Full draw:

Southampton v Portsmouth

Reading v West Bromwich Albion

Fulham v Notts County or Wigan Athletic

Chelsea v Cardiff City

Bolton Wanderers v Tottenham Hotspur or Leeds United

Derby County v Birmingham City

Manchester City v Stoke City

Wolverhampton Wanderers or Crystal Palace v Aston Villa
