The FA Cup provided Coasters fans with some lasting memories this season as we enjoyed a fantastic run to the first round proper.

Victories over Stockport County, Coleshill Town and Barrow AFC culminated in a memorable trip to League One side Millwall and whilst we came away empty handed from The Den, we certainly left with our heads held high.

Following the draw for the fifth round of the competition over the weekend, we take a glance at how our path could have worked out…

Second round:

Millwall 1-2 Wycombe Wanderers

Michael Harriman’s late strike saw Wycombe reach the FA Cup third round at the expense of our first round opponents Millwall. Wycombe went ahead in the second half when a long ball forward found Paul Hayes, but his strike was cancelled out by Ben Thompson’s 25-yard shot. Aaron Pierre’s skill inside the box created an opening for Harriman who won it for the Chairboys in injury time.

Third round:

Wycombe Wanderers 1-1 Aston Villa (Replay – Aston Villa 2-0 Wycombe Wanderers)

Aston Villa’s winless run was extended to 16 games as they were held to a draw by League Two side Wycombe. Micah Richards gave Villa the lead after 22 minutes with a low right-foot shot but the hosts were level five minutes after half-time through Joe Jacobson’s penalty. The Premier League side edged past their opponents in the replay, opening the scoring just 15 minutes from time when Ciaran Clark nodded home. Idrissa Gueye guided in a second to ensure the hosts progressed.

Fourth round:

Aston Villa 0-4 Manchester City

Kelechi Iheanacho scored a hat-trick as Manchester City eased into the fifth round of the FA Cup by thrashing a beleaguered Aston Villa. City went ahead within the first four minutes as the home side failed to clear a corner and Iheanacho swept in a finish from close range. The visitors doubled their lead from Iheanacho’s cool penalty after Raheem Sterling was brought down in the box. Iheanacho ran clear for his third goal and Sterling poked in a fourth.

Manchester City now take on Chelsea in the fifth round, but we will leave it up to you who to cheer on!
