This is Cheltenham Towns first appearance in the fourth round of the FA Cup in 15 years.
0'
In their previous round clash Cheltenham defeated Mansfield Town 2-1 after extra-time at this venue, while Manchester City beat Birmingham City 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium.
0'
However this is the FA Cup and stranger things have happened in the past. City will also miss the injured Kyle Walker as well as Sergio Aguero who tested positive for Covid-19 and that may just give the hosts some hope.
0'
Manchester City will be without the injured Kevin De Bruyne for at least a month due to injury but one would still expect them to brush Cheltenham aside this afternoon.

G'Day and welcome to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium for our live coverage of this FA Cup fourth round clash between Cheltenham Town and Manchester City.
1'
Kick-off! We are underway here in Gloucestershire.
3'
It's nearly 1-0 in the opening minute. Mahrez finds Jesus. The ball is looped towards goal and after a scramble it is cleared.
6'
Cheltenham launch a counter-attack. Lloyd sends it towards the area and May just cannot complete the move.
8'
Clements is brought down by Jesus and Cheltenham have a free-kick in a good position.
10'
They curl it in and there is an appeal for a penalty after a potential handball. The referee is not interested and City is happy with that.
12'
It has been a scrappy start by the City defence and they have given away a number of clumsy free-kicks,
14'
Doyle finds Mendy, who fires a thunderous effort at goal. Great clearance by Clements on the line for Cheltenham.
16'
NO PENALTY! City looking for a penalty after Torres is down following a challenge from Tozer. The referee is not interested and this time Cheltenham is happy.
20'
Foden sends a cross into the area for Torres. He shoots but great work by Griiffiths to move into position and make the SAVE! That should have been 1-0!
23'
Mahrez is dispossessed and May runs into space as Cheltenham launch an attack. Unfortunately the flag is up for OFFSIDE!
25'
May tries his luck with a shot on the half-volley. It is deflected into the side-netting for a Cheltenham corner.
28'
YELLOW! Boyle is booked for a harsh foul on Doyle. That is a fair call by the referee.
31'
Steffen moves into position after a shot from Clements. It was a real tester and the keeper did well.
32'
City have been slow starters recently with most of their goals coming in the second half.
33'
Thus far Cheltenham have done well keeping City out for the first 33 minutes. How long can they keep that up?
35'
City have their shape back and seem to be clicking now.
37'
Fernandinho tries to catch the keeper out with a long-range effort but Griffiths does well to move across.
40'
Mahrez receives a ball from Foden and gets his shot in. A decent strike but straight at the keeper.
42'
We now have fireworks going on next to the ground and the referee has halted proceedings. It is quite the disturbance.
43'
The fireworks have stopped and play continues.
44'
We will have six minutes of time added on for stoppages and fireworks.
45'
HALF-TIME: CHELTENHAM TOWN 0-0 MANCHESTER CITY. Great stuff from the hosts and they have managed to keep a clean sheet in the first half. They have played resonably well. How long can they keep City out?
45'
Tozer throws a long flat throw towards goal and it deflects off Laporte for a corner. That was quite an impressive bullet-type throw,
46'
Kick-off! We are back underway in the second half.
48'
YELLOW! Raglan is booked for a dangerous foul on Jesus.
50'
This is certainly the biggest game in the history of Cheltenham. What can they produce in the second half?
52'
May tries his luck with a long-range overhead kick. It travels everywhere except towards goal. Better luck next time!
55'
Mendy is dispossessed but City get it back and launch an attack via Foden down the left channel. Jesus runs into space and he fires his shot against the outside of the post. He should have scored!
57'
Cheltenham secure another corner. It is whipped in and Laporte does well to head it clear.
59'
GOAL, CHELTENHAM TOWN, MAY! 1-0: WOW What is going on here? Tozer sends in a long bullet throw towards goal and Lloyd flicks it on for May, who finds the back of the net!
60'
That was great execution between May and Tozer. It's game on now. That is the first goal Manchester City have conceded in 419 minutes!
62'
YELLOW! Laporte is booked for a cynical foul and rightly so.
64'
Surely City will now step up and come out all guns blazing?
68'
SUBSTITUTION: A double change for City. Dias and Gundogan is on for Harwood- Bellis and Doyle. Long is on for Lloyd as Cheltenham also make a change.
70'
Tozer comes with another long low bullet throw. This time City clear easier.
72'
Foden is looking better and better. Will he be the man who finds the magic for City?
74'
Laporte receives a ball from Foden and the shot is deflected behind for a corner. Mahrez sends in the corner and it is cleared.
76'
SUBSTITUTION: Cancelo is on to replace Mendy for City.
78'
Dias finds Foden who runs into space. He heads it with a loop towards goal but it's too high.
80'
Cancelo tries his luck with a long-range effort but it is not the best and it flies WIDE!
81'
SUBSTITUTION: A change for Cheltenham and Williams is on for Azas.
82'
GOAL, MANCHESTER CITY, FODEN! 1-1: There it is! Manchester City build patiently and Cancelo finds Foden, who gets Man City back into this game with a brilliant finish.
85'
GOAL, MANCHESTER CITY, JESUS! 1-2. And they turn it around just like that! The dreams of Cheltenham have been crushed here. Tozer played Jesus on and he fires it home!
87'
YELLOW! Tozer was booked after the goal for dissent and complaining that Jesus was offside!
89'
We will have four minutes of time added on for stoppages
91'
Typical City play now and they are just holding onto possession.
93'
GOAL, MANCHESTER CITY, TORRES! 1-3: That will be that! An easy finish for Torres after a back-pass from Gundogan.
94'
FULL-TIME: CHELTENHAM TOWN 1-3 MANCHESTER CITY. Great stuff from the hosts who scored first but City came from behind and are into the next round of the FA Cup. Thank you for joining us.
