League One pace setters prepare for FA Cup first round replays

| 16.11.2010

Gus Poyet is again expected to make numerous changes to his Brighton side as they look to get the job done in a replay against Woking to reach the second round of the FA Cup.

Many people would have expected Poyet’s League One table-toppers to waltz past Woking at home, but the Conference South side showed some steely resolve to secure a goalless draw.

Brighton now head to the Kingfield Stadium to get the right result at the second time of asking and are 4/6 to beat Woking.

Poyet is expected to once again give some of his second string a run out, which is likely to mean starts for Lewis Dunk and Cristian Baz, but Liam Bridcutt definitely misses out as he serves the first of a three-game suspension.

Woking also held Brighton to a replay in the second round of the FA Cup in 1993 when claiming a 1-1 draw away from home.

However, they will be hoping for a better end result this time as they lost the replay 2-1 on that occasion.

It is 7/2 that Woking beat Brighton, while FA Cup betting odds of 7/1 are available that Brighton beat Woking 2-1 to progress in the tournament.

Charlton occupy the other automatic promotion place in League One at present, but also need a replay if they are to reach the second round of the FA Cup.

They were held to a goalless draw away by Barnet, who are currently stuck at the bottom of League Two.

Charlton should find things much easier in the replay as Barnet are still to win away this season and have lost six of their eight games on the road in the league, conceding 21 goals.

Meanwhile, Charlton have won their last five league games and are 2/9 to beat Barnet.

Barnet are 8/1 to beat Charlton, with a draw that would take the game to extra time priced at 4/1. See the full Charlton vs Barnet match betting odds market.
