The magic of the FA Cup returns this weekend and while the big boys are yet to join the competitions there are plenty of tasty-looking fixtures to enjoy.
With the chance to play a Premier League side in the next round at stake, in a fixture that could prove a career highlight to some, all those involved will be going all out for the win.
With this in mind Ladbrokes News is backing a couple of sides to cause an upset and has plumped for Accrington and Maidstone to beat higher league opposition alongside a victory for Luton in a treble paying out at a whopping 43/1.
Read on to see why backing Stanley, the Hatters and the Stones to beat Bury, Yeovil and Wrexham respectively is the way to go.
And in order to qualify for our incredible 5+ accumulator offer – which refunds losing stakes when one side lets you down – adding MK Dons and Sheffield United for routine wins over Chesterfield and Plymouth boost the odds to 124/1!*
This all League Two affair could be a tight contest, with the sides playing out a 1-1 draw earlier this season, but the Hatters will be confident of victory given the Shakers’ poor current form.
David Flitcroft’s men have lost four on the bounce – three of those at home – and with John Still’s men losing just one of their last nine it looks like the Hatters will be in the … er … hat for round three.
The Glovers may sit a league above John Coleman’s side but form can be all-important in a cup tie and it’s the hosts that boast the best current record.
Stanley have won six of their last eight league games and will be in confident mood at home against a Yeovil side with just two wins from 11 games and one win from six on the road.
A Ryman Premier side beating a Conference Premier side can hardly be described as a giant killing but the chance to play a top flight side will certainly have the Stones motivated.
This selection is for the Gut Trusters out there but again form comes into consideration, with the Dragons winning just one of 11 in the league and one of five as hosts.
United, meanwhile, have won eight of their last 12 on the road and lost just three in 21 league games. That familiarity with winning could just see them through here.
