Blues are due to meet the winners of the second-round tie but their replay on Wednesday night was abandoned due to adverse weather conditions.

They will now try again for a third time on January 4, with Lee Clark's side duly set to meet the victors at St Andrew's on the rearranged date of Tuesday January 7, kick-off 7.45pm.

Crawley and Rovers were goalless at the Checkatrade.com Stadium when the replay was abandoned after 75 minutes due to a waterlogged pitch, with the initial meeting at the Memorial Stadium earlier this month also finishing in stalemate.

It means Birmingham will now enjoy a fixture-free weekend early in the new year, with all other Championship and Premier League clubs in third-round action.

That is sure to provide a welcome boost to boss Clark, whose side already face four games in 12 days starting with Saturday's home encounter against Nottingham Forest.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
