WORCESTER City’s FA Cup second round replay with Scunthorpe United will be shown live on BT Sport.

The tie, which saw the teams battle to a 1-1 draw at Glanford Park yesterday (Sunday), will take place at Aggborough on Wednesday, December 17, 7.45pm kick-off.

City are expected to pocket a further £36,000 in TV rights which will take their overall cup revenue to about £150,000.

Carl Heeley’s side held the Iron when a Daniel Nti strike levelled things up 45 seconds into the second half. That after Paddy Maden had sent the North Lincolnshire outfit 1-0 up at the break.

The draw for the third round takes place tonight (Monday) live on BBC2 at 7pm.
