Manchester City v Bradford Park Avenue

On this day (26 January) in 1946 a comfortable 3-1 victory for Manchester City over Bradford Park Avenue in the fourth round of the FA Cup seemed certain to put the Blues through to the fifth round.  However, this first season of FA Cup football after the war saw games played on a home and away basis and the Blues had to face Bradford again a few days later.

I think you can guess how that went (!) but come back on 30 January for that history breaking moment.
