BT Sport is to broadcast two fixtures from the second round of this season's FA Cup - the world's oldest domestic knock-out competition.

On Sunday December 8th, BT Sport will be showing the Bury or Cambridge United v Sheffield United fixture.

Kick-off is at 12.00pm, with match coverage starting at 11.30am on BT Sport 1.

With Nigel Clough's Blades side struggling near the bottom of League One, a cup upset looks far from impossible in this tie - whoever they are pitted against.

Ronnie Jepson's Bury host Cambridge - the runaway Skrill Conference leaders - in a rescheduled first round match at the JD Stadium on Tuesday November 19th.

The original fixture fell victim to the weather, with referee Mark Brown calling the game off due to a waterlogged pitch.

On Monday December 9th, the BT Sport cameras will be in north Wales as another non-league side - Wrexham - host either Oxford United or Gateshead.

This game will kick-off at 7.45pm, with match coverage from 7.15pm on BT Sport 1.

Andy Morrell's Dragons side have struggled to emulate the highs of last season - when they were one game away from regaining their Football League status - so far in 2013-14.

However, the Welsh side - that famously knocked Arsenal out of the FA Cup in 1992 - will be pleased with a home tie in this year's second round.

Oxford and Gateshead drew 2-2 in their first round encounter, with a replay scheduled for Wednesday November 20th.

Chris Wilder's Us side currently sit in second place in League Two following a superb start to the season, while Gateshead are mid-table in the Skrill Conference Premier.

Wrexham played Gateshead in the league just this weekend, with Andy Bishop scoring a hat-trick - including a 90th minute winner - in a 3-2 win at the Racecourse Ground.

BT Sport will air 25 matches from the FA Cup during the 2013-14 campaign, including the final at Wembley on Saturday May 17th.

The pay-TV provider is sharing live broadcast rights to the competition with ITV this season, and with the BBC from 2014-15.
