Sheffield Wednesday landed the one FA Cup draw they were desperate to avoid.
The 'luck' of the draw pits them against Manchester City away from home, a repeat of a Capital One Cup clash earlier in the season.
That match-up between the Championship and Premier League side was eagerly anticipated, with many wondering if an upset could be on the horizon.
City answered comprehensively, thrashing the Owls 7-0 at the Etihad.
The result knocked the sails out of Wednesday's season, and they have only begun to recapture their form of late with two wins in their last two games.
Wednesday will undoubtedly go there with lofty ambitions, but the odds of an upset will be even greater after the result of the previous game.
It's hard to imagine it will not weigh on the minds of players and staff too - and perhaps their best bet is to hope City approach the game in an over-confident manner.
Wednesday fans were not best pleased with the draw, here's a look at how they reacted on Twitter:
