"There's no disputing: we've had a poor FA Cup record of late, and we certainly haven't performed well enough in certain games, that's obvious. Of the last twelve FA Cup draws that we've had, eleven have been away, so that doesn't help. This one again is away, but that's not to say that we haven't contributed towards some of our errors." - Paul Tisdale




Exeter City 4/11
Didcot Town 7/1
Draw 15/4
