BLACKBURN, England - Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini revealed on Saturday that his club cancelled a trip to Abu Dhabi after they were taken to an FA Cup replay by Blackburn Rovers.

Abu Dhabi-owned City were due to travel to the United Arab Emirates for a friendly against Al Ain on January 14 and a week of warm-weather training, but instead they must prepare for the replay with second-tier Blackburn.

Alvaro Negredo put City in front on the stroke of half-time in the third-round tie at Ewood Park, only for Blackburn captain Scott Dann to earn his side a 1-1 draw with a 55th-minute equaliser.
