Accrington Stanley started their cup journey in the first round. First, they knocked out Crawley Town (4:1). Then Accrington beat Barnet by a narrow margin, 1:0. In the third round, however, Stanley had problems. They had a replay with a representative of the fifth strongest English division, Boreham Wood, because of the draw in the first meeting (1:1). The return game in Accrington ended in the 97th minute with a victory for the hosts (1:0). The only goal was scored on penalties. Stanley is in a worse position in League 1 - they sit at the bottom of the standings, 20th out of 24 teams.
Leeds also had to go through a replay phase. But the Peacocks faced Cardiff City. The first meeting in Wales ended in a 2:2 draw. Although United was 0:2 down as the match progressed, and only escaped defeat in the 93rd minute. Their replay was held on January 18. The Peacocks took out Cardiff 5:2. Patrick Bamford got his double. However, Leeds' business could be better in the EPL - six winless matches. That is, they have yet to win a single victory after the break in the championship.
So, last weekend, the Peacocks sealed a home draw with Brentford (0:0). Before that, there were productive matches against Aston Villa (1:2) and West Ham (2:2). Therefore, the FA Cup is an outlet for Jesse Marsh's charges.
Expert Betting Tips
Accrington will definitely put up a decent resistance to Leeds and net a goal. But it will not be enough for two reasons. The first is the recovery time. Stanley had three days to prepare, while the Peacocks had a week. The second is the difference in class. Even Jesse Marsh's reserves have to destroy a League 1 representative.
