Last updated : 18 January 2013 By Thetashkentterror

The Blues are looking to make it a hat-trick this season after winning the competition in 2011 and 2012 and after beating Celtic Nation 2-1 away, Longtown 3-0 at home and then thrashing Penrith Rangers 16-0 at Brunton Park in the first three rounds, United have now been drawn at home once more as they are sit to take on City in a match will be likely to take place in late February or early March.

In-form City will prove a tough task though as they currently sit in third place in the Northern Football Alliance Premier Division on the back of eight wins and two defeats from ten games, scoring 27 goals in the process and only conceding eight. City also currently, if you include extra-time, on a run of 12 straight wins on the bounce.

Meanwhile in the Cumberland Cup only the Sheepmount-based side have so far been thundering in the goals having beaten Penrith Saints 17-0 at home, Frizington White Star 9-1 at home and Aspatria FC 7-1 on the road in the opening three stages of the competition, with Sean Bannon in particular finding himself very regularly on the scoresheet.
