Stockport eager to bolt past Bolton
Stockport County host League One side Bolton Wanderers in front of a sold-out Edgeley Park on Wednesday night. Having taken over 5,000 fans to the University of Bolton stadium just under a fortnight ago, it is set to be an intimidating atmosphere for Whites manager Ian Evatt and his team.
Having taken over as head coach at the beginning of November, Dave Challinor will be eager to provide a real statement win and gift the Hatters with another cup run.
Despite not displaying the most prolific attacking threat at Bolton, they made the most of their three attempts towards goal; capitalising on two of them with goals from Scott Quigley and Ben Whitfield. Wanderers enjoyed 65% of possession - statistics Challinor has surely noted if he is to see County advance.
Challinor will fancy his chances in the replay, with Betfred pricing a home win at 9/4, with a Bolton victory coming in at 11/10.
Tynesiders head for tough non-league showdown
Being the only all Non-League fixture in the FA Cup replay fixtures, Gateshead will travel to Moss Lane with the ambition to surprise their opponents who sit 12th in the National League.
Having played out an entertaining 2-2 draw in the first meeting, Altrincham overcame a two-goal deficit with late goals from Marcus Dinanga and Jake Moult to keep their cup hopes alive.
A victory here would see Altrincham advance into the Second Round for the first time since the disrupted 2019/20 season, overcoming York City before being defeated away to Portsmouth.
Robins manager Phil Parkinson will be desperate to avoid a Tynesiders party, easing the pressure after collecting just 2 points from their previous 5 league games.
As proven from the reverse fixture, Gateshead will be no pushovers, having competed in a total of 4 games to make it into the competition, thrashing Bradford Park Avenue 6-2 along the way. Altrincham are favourites to win at 21/20, with a Gateshead win coming in at 12/5.
One Moor push needed for Solihull
Having played out a stalemate with the 2012/13 FA Cup winners, Solihull will be up to cause a major upset in front of the cameras against League One side Wigan Athletic.
Both sides played out a competitive match at the DW Stadium, but the Latics were far more ambitious towards goal, attempting six shots on target compared to the away sides measly two.
Recently appointed Moors manager Neal Ardley will hope to lead Solihull into the next round of the competition for the third season in a row and having taken previous club AFC Wimbledon into the 3rd round during the 2014/15 season, narrowly missing out to Liverpool 2-1, he could be the man to inspire a cup run.
Wigan are the clear favourites to advance to the Secound Round at 5/6, however if you fancy an FA Cup shock, a Moors victory comes in at 3/1.
