A 3 nil win at Cambridge is much more desired than a win in Cardiff in my view.


Do agree with that

If served with the offer of a 1-0 win and a 1-0 defeat in the next 2 games, i'd take the win at Cambridge anyday

All day long, Cardiff will be a good day out, a new ground for many (me included) and a free hit in terms of the match, if we win brilliant and if jot then we move on!

Over 1000 tickets sold now, so apart from Notts, Chesterfield and Coventry should be our best following of the season.

I don’t think we have a reserve side..probably 18/19 of our squad could arguably call themselves first team players.

New ground for most of our fans, cheap tickets and a free shot at a cup shock.

Sounds like all they’ve got to do is turn up with 11 people and we’re out.

Let’s hope they carry on underestimating us.

Almost 1,100 tickets now sold.

Remember they go off sale tomorrow at 5pm and aren't available to buy on the day.

It is so the hooligans can buy tickets in the home end when they turn up without a ticket. ;)
We might win against Accrington next time.

BBC pundits typically don't think there'll be an upset in Cardiff

It's a wonder they recognise us as their opponents in any case!

Just play as we've been doing and see if something happens.

No expectations, no pressure it'll be nice going into a game for once not expecting to get something from it (but not in a defeatist sense). If we get a replay it'll possibly be on TV, if we win it's big prize money and another chance of a big tie.

If we lose, we've still got plenty of positives, we've been on TV and highlights for both games with gate money on top it'll be close to £100k - and we can crack on with the ultimate job we've set out to do.

Let's go out and have a good day tomorrow, and who knows, lady luck might shine brightly :)

as at Monday, Spencer was still suffering from the virus and not even training, according to Evans. So I doubt it.

Hemmings and Angol for me.

Need to give this game a good go, we ain't favourites by a long shout but we have ever chance afterall its cup football.

One game winner stays on.

It's unfortunate to hear Rose is out/won't be risked but at least Hemmings and Angol are finding the back of the net

Angol with another last ten minute key contribution...?
