Football – England – FA Cup Betting Tips

The third FA Cup first round replay tie on Tuesday night features an all-League One encounter between Scunthorpe United and Northampton Town at Glanford Park with these teams sitting at either end of the division.

Scunthorpe sit in fifth place in League One following a 1-0 home win over Bristol Rovers on Saturday and they hold a reasonable record on home turf so far with stats of  4-3-2  9/6 while they’ve suffered just one defeat at home from their last six matches in all competitions.

League wins against Portsmouth, Peterborough United and Bristol Rovers as well as a Football Trophy win over Grimsby Town should give The Iron confidence ahead of this cup replay, as well as the form of forward Novak (4 goals) and midfielder Morris (5 goals).

Visitors Northampton Town find themselves in the wrong half of League One as they occupy 19th place in the English third tier, but there are encouraging signs of a revival for The Cobblers as they head into this cup replay on the back of an unbeaten run of six matches in all competitions.

It’s taken some time for new manager, Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink to bed down his new side following his appointment at Northampton which saw him replace former boss, Justin Edinburgh, but his side are beginning to turn things around.

With four wins from their last five, which has seen Northampton beat Gillingham, Blackpool, Southampton Academy and Oxford United, they’ll be bringing in a winning momentum into this cup replay, and with a local derby win under their belt from Saturday, The Cobblers should be raring to go here.
