Tip Reasoning

So it may not be the most glamorous tie in the FA Cup first round, but this weekend’s clash between National League side Ebbsfleet United and League Two strugglers Cheltenham Town could have a sprinkle of magic, which makes the FA Cup so special. Despite the fact the two sides play in different divisions, the form of the away side means that an upset is a real possibility.

The hosts go into this match in pretty high spirits following last weeks 1-0 victory over Barrow and that result means that they are comfortably placed in mid table in the National League. United have already enjoyed their time in the FA Cup as they qualified for the first round proper with a dominant 4-0 victory over Worthing last month, and given their solid form of late, there will be plenty of fans who are confidently predicting that their adventure in the cup this year will not end this weekend.

Making the trip to Stonebridge Road is a Cheltenham Town side who will be hoping a run in the FA Cup can spring them into life as, truth be told, it has been a pretty dismal start to the season so far. Although we are still relatively early in the campaign, the Robins have had a pretty torrid time and they will be worried about losing their spot in the Football League come the end of the season.

With the hosts in high spirits and good form, as well as having their fans cheering them on to victory, we think that an upset may be on the cards in this fixture. However, despite the form of the visitors, we are wary of the superior quality they have in their squad. With this in mind, we think that backing an Ebbsfleet win with the added safety net of the ‘Draw – No Bet’ clause looks to be best way to go about things.
