Tip Reasoning

  • Burnley are winless in each of their last seven games.
  • Burnley have not reached the fourth round of the FA Cup in four consecutive seasons since 2004/05.
  • Huddersfield have the momentum and are unbeaten in six games.

The Terriers are out to defy history

While a division separates these sides, that is only eight places in the English football pyramid… suggesting that this could be a much more close run affair than league status may suggest. Here, Huddersfield must channel the spirit of 1972 team that last knocked Burnley out of the FA Cup.

Simply put, Burnley and Huddersfield are in polar opposite form, perennial PL strugglers Burnley are battling relegation while the Terriers bare their fangs in the race for a top-six spot in the Championship.

History would suggest a home win as Burnley have won four FA Cup encounters between the sides, though they have never came out on top five times in a row in any competitive H2H since their very first meeting back in 1910.

Bigger fish to fry for Burnley

While cup glory is nice, Burnley are rooted in the bottom-three and will not fancy becoming just the second ever side to win the FA Cup and be relegated after Wigan in 2013.

Burnley were knocked out of the FA Cup at home by Championship opposition as recently as 2019/20 (1-2 vs Norwich) and that game will give the Terriers hope of ending their 12-game winless run of away FA Cup ties against top-flight opponents (D2, L10).

Overall, I think there is value in backing Huddersfield to at least take this game to a replay, so I predict a double chance draw or away win at a rather attractive price.
