Stockport and Bolton go at it once again on Wednesday night to try and settle this FA Cup First Round tie.

The first attempt ended in an exciting 2-2 draw and now it’s Stockport with home advantage.

Can the National League side pull off the shock still and get rid of League One’s Bolton from the draw?

Stockport Preview – Stockport still in it

All of the goals in the first meeting came in the first half of the fixture at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Stockpot had taken the lead in the match, but then tied things up 2-2 in first-half stoppage time.

It was a great encounter and now it’s back to Stockport in midweek.

The National League side are the 13/5 underdogs in the fixture for FA Cup betting* (odds recorded 1856 GMT 15th November 2021 at William Hill).

Looking at their league form, they are sitting in 11th place in the fifth tier.

But they have claimed only one win in their last four matches.

Throw in the FA Cup and that has been a W1 D21 L2 record from Stockport in their last five.

The Hatters beat non-league Stamford 3-0 in the previous round of the FA Cup.

So that’s at least two goals scored in both FA Cup fixtures this season.

Our betting prediction:
Stockport 1 goal winning margin

Can the underdogs have their day at Edgeley Park? Bolton aren’t in great form, so Stockpot may have a chance.

They did have to squeeze a league game in on the weekend, earning a point against Bromley.

This year’s clash is the first time that Stockport and Bolton had met since the 2002 FA Cup.

Stockport lost that 2002 tie 1-4 on home turf.

The over 2.5 goals is at a quote of 5/6 for a repeat showing in the replay* (odds recorded 1856 GMT 15th November 2021 at William Hill).

Eight of Stockport’s last ten matches in all competitions have gone above the goal line.


Bolton Preview – Can the Trotters survivee?

There hasn’t been a great deal of positive form from League One side Bolton recently.

They have posted a W1 D2 L4 record in their last eight fixtures in all competitions (Football League Trophy not included).

The Trotters did also have a league game on the weekend and they took a good 2-0 home success over Crewe.

That left them in mid-table in the league and would have been very welcome.

Before that, Bolton had gone D1 L4 in a run of five league fixtures.

They have still lost their last three away games in the league, failing to score in any of those.

In the match outright for FA Cup betting on Wednesday, Bolton are 21/20 for the win* (odds recorded 1856 GMT 15th November 2021 at William Hill).

With that in mind, the Trotters could be under some pressure in midweek.

The Trotters have claimed one clean sheet in their last twelve matches in all competitions.

So there are issues there at the back for them.

The other thing from their away form has been a lack of scoring.

Bolton have failed to score in six of their last nine road matches in all competitions.

Bolton are W2 D1 L1 in their four previous FA Cup matches played against Stockport.

This doesn’t look like being a comfortable trip to Edgeley Park for them.
