This match is the one outstanding fixture from the first round of the FA Cup that needs to be settled.

It features League Two’s Barrow hoping to pull off a home upset as they host AFC Wimbledon who are from a tier above.

The problem here for Barrow is a lack of current form and they go into the game as underdogs.

The winner of this tie will play at home to League Two side Crawley Town in the second round.

Barrow Preview – Barrow face a tough home game

League Two side Barrow are struggling for a bit of form at the moment, having failed to win any of their last five in all competitions.

On the weekend they lost a home league fixture 3-4 against Oldham. That was their fourth league game on the bounce without a win.

Barrow have claimed just two league wins this season from their 14 games played.

So it has been a difficult season and in the match outright for FA Cup betting on Thursday, they are 9/5 underdogs* (odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November).

While Barrow have really struggled for wins anywhere all season, they haven’t been easy to beat at home.

They hold a W1 D7 L2 record on home turf across all competitions this season.

In four of their last six home games they have managed to score at least two goals as well.

But are they likely to have enough to topple AFC Wimbledon?

Well, interestingly Barrow are W1 D1 in their two previous home games against AFC Wimbledon.

The last of those was back in the 2010 Blue Square Premier, so it’s been a while.

Our betting prediction:
Wimbledon 1-goal margin

(odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November)


At the very least this is a chance to blow off a bit of steam away from the pressure of the league.

Both teams to score in the fixture, given that Barrow have been scoring on home turf, is at 7/10 for FA Cup betting* (odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November).

Barrow were promoted from the National League last season up to the fourth tier.


AFC Wimbledon Preview – Visitors to take their chance?

League One side AFC Wimbledon are sitting mid-table in their division.

They had a good unbeaten streak snapped on the weekend as they lost to Gillingham.

Still, they look pretty solid as the 7/5 favourites for this contest in FA Cup betting on Thursday night* (odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November).

They are not a particularly free-scoring side and just once in their last six fixtures have they managed more than one goal in a game.

So that perhaps could be the concern for them, but then they are playing a team from a division below them.

On their travels this season AFC Wimbledon have taken a W3 D4 L3 record which is nothing special at all.

But they have hit the back of the net in all but two of those road games.

An AFC Wimbledon 1-goal winning margin is at 3/1* (odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November)

AFC Wimbledon reached the third second round of last season’s FA Cup where they fell to Doncatser in a reply.

We do see the visitors just getting through this tie, but we don’t see it happening by a big margin.

In all likelihood it is probably going to be a bit tense, low-key affair.

No, the away form of Wimbledon has not been prolific, but they have faced a lot stiffer levels of opposition than Barrow in that sequence.

That is why they may just be worth supporting.


Barrow vs AFC Wimbledon Betting Advice

Barrow are working very hard down near the League Two relegation zone to stay out of that danger area.

They have proven to be a tough side to beat at Holker Street and that is why we think that this game will be settled only by a narrow margin.

We think the visitors come out on top.

So the AFC Wimbledon 1-goal margin win at 3/1 does have excellent appeal for FA Cup betting* (odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November).


Key Facts – Barrow vs AFC Wimbledon Betting Tip

  • Barrow are winless in five in all competitions
  • Barrow have drawn 6 of 9 home games this season
  • AFC Wimbledon are W1 D1 L2 in their four previous games against Barrow


Following on from that train of through, we are going to look for more value.

We think that Barrow can get on the scoresheet at least, so a Wimbledon 2-1 correct score option enters our scope at 17/2* (odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November).

A place in the second round proper awaits, who takes it?
