Their home advantage is nullified to a significant extent by having no crowds. Also they appear to have an extensive injury list including their first choice keeper.
It's the FA Cup...there will be some shock results let's hope ours is one of them.
A shame CJ isn't available but I quite like Athers team. Ward for Virtue though if he gets the ok to play.

3-2 pool. 1 for Yates, 1 for Goal Machine and 1 for Simms on his debut.

Poor ref and both their goals come from penalties.

Can you be a bit more specific 🙃
2 - 1 to the Pool at half time after a storming first half. Don't come out for the second and Brighton equalise on 80 mins.
Nip and tuck in extra time but shirtless Jerry cracks in a 20 yard belter five minutes into the second half of extra time.

Had £5 on us to win on penalties against WBA at 12/1...gone for us to win in normal time this time round at 7/1. Load up!

Do hope we give a good account of ourselves, but the Cup still merely a distraction from main business.
No more UK injuries this afternoon, please, nor extra -time.
Most of the teams immediately below us have difficult away fixtures today, but I'm more anxious about safety than playoff contention.
We'll be no lower than 16th this evening, but have to start winning league games.
Having said that, what better way to prepare for Tuesday than a confidence -booster against Prem. opposition?

I think that is our strongest team Athers . But the bottom line should read ,Bring Sims on when we're 3 or 4 up!

5 at the back.

Severely weakened side though.

As I said on another thread, at least it's only the cup in a game we weren't likely to win anyway.

Nowt doing today with that team I’m afraid. One positive is it’s nice to see several youth players on the bench. Not sure why we have two goalkeepers on the bench
