Saturday's FA Cup predictions including Barnsley vs. Crewe

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's FA Cup fixtures, including Barnsley vs. Crewe.


King's Lynn vs. Stevenage (Saturday, 12.45pm)

King's Lynn Town play host to Stevenage in the FA Cup second round on Saturday afternoon looking to cause another surprise in the competition.

The National League North side have already defeated League Two opposition this campaign, but their opponents are currently riding high in that division.

We say: King's Lynn Town 0-2 Stevenage


Despite their indifferent form, King's Lynn have already proven this campaign that they are capable of causing a surprise. Nevertheless, we cannot back against the visitors, who we expect to produce a professional performance which will be good enough to seal their place in round three.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Accrington vs. Barnet (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Accrington Stanley take on Barnet in the second round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

Accrington defeated Crawley Town 4-1 to reach this stage, while non-league outfit Barnet overcame Chelmsford City after a replay.

We say: Accrington Stanley 2-1 Barnet


We expect Barnet to give Accrington a good fight on Saturday, but the League One side should have too much quality for their non-league opponents in the end.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Barnsley vs. Crewe (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Barnsley and Crewe Alexandra will do battle for a place in the third round of the FA Cup at Oakwell on Saturday.

The hosts beat Bolton Wanderers away from home in the first round, while their visitors scraped past Leyton Orient in dramatic fashion at the beginning of November.

We say: Barnsley 3-1 Crewe Alexandra


Crewe Alexandra will arrive with plenty of confidence having put a run of results together after a tough year, but a trip to Oakwell will likely be a step too far, and we see them falling short against a strong and improving Tykes side.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Forest Green vs. Alvechurch (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Forest Green Rovers host Southern League minnows Alvechurch at the New Lawn Stadium this Saturday in the second round of the FA Cup.

With four divisions and 92 league places separating the two sides, the match will prove to be one of the most interesting match-ups in the entire cup round.

We say: Forest Green Rovers 3-1 Alvechurch


When up against it, Alvechurch are a side that has proven in both the FA Cup and the FA Trophy that they can score goals against almost any team. They will undoubtedly give a depleted Forest Green team a challenge at the New Lane this weekend.

However, the vast disparity between these two teams - including the star quality of Green's Wickham, Myles Peart-Harris and McGeouch - should see the home side win comfortably enough.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Portsmouth vs. MK Dons (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Portsmouth will welcome fellow League One outfit MK Dons to Fratton Park on Saturday, with the two teams set to battle it out for a place in the FA Cup third round.

They both recorded victories in the EFL Trophy in midweek, and as a result, Pompey and MK Dons will be searching for consecutive victories.

We say: Portsmouth 1-1 MK Dons


Although Portsmouth are unbeaten at home this season, their last five home games have finished all square after 90 minutes, and we think that they will play out another draw on Saturday, which would send the second-round tie to a replay.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Shrewsbury vs. Peterborough (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Shrewsbury Town will compete for a place in the FA Cup third round this weekend when they take on Peterborough United at the Montgomery Waters Stadium.

The hosts come into this one off the back of a defeat to Sheffield Wednesday last Saturday, while the visitors travel to Shropshire off the back of a loss to Chelsea Under-21s in the EFL Trophy.

We say: Shrewsbury Town 1-2 Peterborough United


In a match between two League One sides, we expect a close game that will present its fair share of opportunities.

On this occasion, Peterborough will narrowly secure a victory and progress to the third round of the FA Cup.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Hartlepool vs. Harrogate (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Two sides struggling at the bottom of League Two meet on Saturday when Harrogate Town travel to face Hartlepool United in the second round of the FA Cup.

Hartlepool have lost six of their last seven in the fourth tier with safety in their second season at this level looking unlikely, whereas Harrogate earned a vital three points last weekend against Mansfield Town.

We say: Hartlepool United 0-1 Harrogate Town


Hartlepool are facing a harsh winter period as they look to survive in League Two, but a successful run in the FA Cup could help lift spirits around the club.

Harrogate are high on confidence after that brilliant victory over Mansfield and although the atmosphere will be hostile on Saturday, we are backing the visitors to earn a place in the third-round draw.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Charlton vs. Stockport (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Stockport County travel to The Valley for the first time since 2010 to face a stuttering Charlton Athletic in the second round of this season's FA Cup on Saturday.

The Hatters have adapted well to life back in the fourth tier and were seven unbeaten in all competitions until a loss last weekend, whereas The Addicks are failing to match their promotion ambitions in League One after an inconsistent set of results so far.

We say: Charlton Athletic 2-1 Stockport County


Charlton are in a bad place as a club at the moment and will hope the FA Cup can provide a distraction from a league campaign that looks set to disappoint once more.

Stockport are in a buoyant mood after a positive run of form in League Two, but a trip to The Valley to face a Charlton side full of quality players may be where their journey in this competition ends for another year.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Sheff Weds vs. Mansfield (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Sheffield Wednesday and Mansfield Town will do battle in an FA Cup second-round tie at Hillsborough on Saturday.

The hosts progressed past Morecambe in the first round of the competition, while their fourth-tier visitors earned their place with a win away at Barrow.

We say: Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 Mansfield Town


While there is still plenty of room for improvement given the quality in their side, Sheffield Wednesday appear to have found a winning formula this season, and they should have too much for their fourth-tier visitors on Saturday.

Several players will be keen to impress Moore, and the Owls should comfortably get past Clough's men with home advantage and a superior squad.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

AFC Wimbledon vs. Chesterfield (Saturday, 3.00pm)

AFC Wimbledon of League Two host Chesterfield of the National League in the second round of the FA Cup this weekend.

Having triumphed in the first round against Northampton Town, Chesterfield will be looking to make the next stage of the Cup for their second consecutive season. They will be hunting for an upset against a Wimbledon side just one division above them, who themselves have reached five of the last six third rounds.

We say: AFC Wimbledon 1-1 Chesterfield


Wimbledon have a lot of quality in their squad, and the likes of Pell, Assal and Chislett represent the cutting edge that Jackson has at his disposal.

However, Cook is an experienced coach with a lot of confidence in his side's ability to grind out results. Wimbledon's counter-attacking thrust will likely be anticipated by Chesterfield, and Cook's approach will likely cancel out both sides' ability to gain a definitive result at Plough Lane.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Walsall vs. Carlisle (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Walsall will be hoping to book their place in the third round of the FA Cup when they take on Carlisle United at the Poundland Bescot Stadium on Saturday.

It is a clash between two teams in League Two that met not too long ago, playing out a 0-0 draw at Brunton Park earlier in November.

We say: Walsall 1-1 Carlisle United


Walsall and Carlisle are very evenly matched, as illustrated by their 0-0 draw earlier this month. There may be some goals in this encounter, due to the attacking threat posed by Danny Johnson and Krystian Dennis, but a replay could be on the cards to decide who progresses to the third round.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Cambridge vs. Grimsby Town (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Cambridge United will look to ease their recent struggles this weekend when they take on Grimsby Town at the Abbey Stadium in the FA Cup second round.

The hosts come into this one following a defeat to Accrington Stanley, while the visitors enter the fray off the back of a stalemate at home to Stevenage.

We say: Cambridge United 1-0 Grimsby Town


In a match that could help to turn round the fortunes of both Cambridge and Grimsby, we expect a cagey affair as both sides are low on confidence due to recent results.

On this occasion, Cambridge will do just enough to book their place in the third round of the FA Cup.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Oxford Utd vs. Exeter (Saturday, 3.00pm)

It is a battle of the League One sides at The Kassam Stadium on Saturday as Oxford United and Exeter City fight for a place in the third round of the FA Cup.

A single point separates the two clubs in the third-tier table ahead of this cup tie, with a potential match against a Premier League giant on the cards for the winners in the next round.

We say: Oxford United 1-2 Exeter City


Oxford are six unbeaten in League One but have failed to earn enough maximums to be competing at the top end of the third tier and looked very unconvincing against Forest Green last time out.

Exeter have shown they possess the firepower to comfortably survive this season and it could be a case of Brown's brilliance securing them passage to the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Wrexham vs. Farnborough Town (Saturday, 3.15pm)

Wrexham will have a great opportunity to book a place in the FA Cup third round when they host Farnborough Town at the Racecourse Ground on Saturday afternoon.

It is the first ever competitive meeting between the two sides, with the home team currently competing in the National League, while the visitors turn out in the National League South.

We say: Wrexham 3-1 Farnborough Town


Although Wrexham currently reside in the National League, in truth they have built a squad compiled of EFL standard players, so they should not have too much trouble against National League South opposition. With so much on the line, Farnborough will give it their all, but on paper they do not have the quality to pose too many problems for their opponents.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Dag & Red vs. Gillingham (Saturday, 5.00pm)

Dagenham & Redbridge host Gillingham in the second round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

Dag & Red defeated Maidenhead United in the previous round to reach this stage, while the Gills overcame AFC Fylde after a replay.

We say: Dagenham & Redbridge 0-0 Gillingham


Given the contrasting form between these two sides, who are only one division apart, there may be very little splitting the two teams on the day.

As such, it would be no surprise to see a draw be the end result, with Gillingham potentially content to take their opponents back to the Priestfield Stadium for a replay.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.
