Newport manager Michael Flynn is refusing to consider a lucrative fifth-round FA Cup tie against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

The Sky Bet League side meet Middlesbrough in a fourth-round replay at Rodney Parade tomorrow, with the prize being a home tie against the Premier League champions on February 16.

"I am not thinking about Man City one bit, not a chance," former Bantams skipper Flynn said, referring to the popular TV programme Bullseye of the 1980s and 1990s.

"This could end up like Bullseye - Bully's special prize, look what you could have won!

"You start getting carried away and you see the boat floating off, and you end up with a rubber dinghy."

Flynn was on the same Football Association of Wales coaching course as City's assistant coach Mikel Arteta.

"I texted Mikel when the draw came out and I said 'Thank God if we do get through it's not at your place, because I would have been ill!" Flynn said.

Newport made around £700,000 from reaching the fourth round of the FA Cup last season, and the Exiles expect that figure to be comfortably surpassed should they get through to play City.

"Getting a result against Boro would be absolutely huge for the football club," Flynn added.

"This game could be worth up to seven figures what with the prize money, extra money for going further than any other League Two club, TV money and another sell-out."

Another former Bantam, Matty Dolan, was instrumental in setting up tomorrow's replay with a late equaliser at Middlesbrough.
