Rescheduled FA Cup tie to be broadcast on S4C


The rescheduled FA Cup third round tie between Bristol City and Cardiff City will be broadcast live on S4C on Tuesday 12 January 2010 (kick off 7.45pm).

The local Championship rivals will go head-to-head at Ashton Gate after the original tie was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

S4C’s Sgorio team will provide live coverage of the derby as S4C follows the progress of Cardiff City, the only Welsh club remaining in the FA Cup, sponsored by Eon.

Presenter Gareth Roberts will be joined by ex-Wales international John Hartson and Osian Roberts in the studio, with Nic Parry and Malcolm Allen providing expert commentary on the match.

The coverage includes English language subtitles and the match will also be available to watch live on the S4C website,

S4C is available on all platforms in Wales and on Sky 134 and Freesat 120 in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Sgorio pundit, former Newcastle and Wales forward Malcolm Allen said: “Cardiff City have a great record away from home this season and a phenomenal scoring record. But a derby is a derby and a FA Cup match is never easy to predict. Bristol City will certainly be fired up for this one. It should be a cracker.”
