An FA Cup Third Round prediction competition
There are 25 FA Cup Third Round ties this weekend involving Football League clubs playing against teams from a different division.
But where will the upsets be found?
There are no prizes, it’s just for fun, but have a look at the fixtures listed below and pick FIVE teams from those in bold who you think may spring a surprise.
There are different numbers of points awarded for how difficult each club’s tie is, ranging from the most difficult (Peterborough away at Fulham, Charlton away at Tottenham and Notts County away at Sunderland – 16 points up for grabs) to the easiest (Torquay United at home to Carlisle United – 2 points available).
Points will be halved in the case of draws.
This points system has been devised based on the division a club is in, the division their opponents are in and whether the tie is home or away.
