Blackburn and Yeovil good bets to reach FA Cup third round

Blackburn fans could be set for smiles
1 of 1

Second-round replays
From 7.45pm Tuesday

Crewe rallied from three goals down to earn an FA Cup second-round replay against nine-man Blackburn at Ewood Park but all their hard work could be undone when red-hot Rovers travel to Gresty Road.

David Artell’s side had a two-man advantage for a little over half an hour and when Chris Porter equalised from the penalty spot in the 66th minute it seemed Rovers were there for the taking.

But it was a missed opportunity for Crewe and a little more discipline from Tony Mowbray’s men in the replay should see Blackburn stamp their authority on the game.

Rovers are unbeaten in six matches in all competitions - they have averaged three goals per game in that time - and Saturday's 3-2 win at Peterborough showcases their attacking talent.

The hosts have suffered three straight league defeats at their Cheshire base and the classy visitors, armed with the services of Bradley Dack in midfield, are hitting their stride now.

Just one point separates Yeovil and Port Vale in Sky Bet League Two and the Glovers may be a touch overpriced with home advantage.

Darren Way's men were brushed aside 2-0 by visitors Lincoln on Saturday but the Glovers have lost just three of their 15 matches at Huish Park this season and should find the Vale an easier task.

Both meetings between the pair this term have ended in 1-1 draws but Vale have won only one of their last five matches and this is the perfect chance for Yeovil to rediscover the winning feeling.

Sky Bet League One leaders Wigan host National League Fylde and should justify favouritism while free-scoring Posh may prove too explosive for lesser lights Woking.
