Jack Grimmer with the winner – FA Cup 3rd Round

Jack Grimmer with the winner against Stoke City

Coventry City the 1987 FA Cup winners added more misery on Stoke City and Mark Hughes, who has since been sacked as their manager after an awful run of recent form. Coventry scored first before Charlie Adam equalised, but it was Jack Grimmer with the winner in the 68th minute that sunk the Premier League side to send Coventry City into the next round.

With no non-league teams in the third round for the first time in sixty-seven years it was all about League One and League Two teams causing upsets. Wigan managed it second time around after being two nil up down in Bournemouth only to concede a 92 minute equaliser in their first match. Back up north though they brushed aside the Premier League by three goals to nil.

Newcastle United however made light work of Luton Town after they went three nil up in the first half, but Luton as we know are fantastic at scoring goals. They got one back at the start of the second half through Hylton. He then scored again not long after, but it was disallowed for offside when it clearly
wasn’t and that could have made all the difference as Luton would have just got at them. West Brom had an easy game too as they got two first half goals against Exeter through Rondon and Rodriguez, they could have had three but Robson-Kanu also missed a penalty.

At Highbury, Fleetwood met Leicester City for their ever first ever meeting. Unfortunately there was no Jamie Vardy making a return to his old club because he was out with an injury. Fleetwood were a ninth tier club just twelve years ago but they gave a good account of themselves and had some chances in the first game to get a 0-0. No surprise they lost the replay though at the King Power.

There were also four other lower league teams that held higher opposition to a 0-0 draw before eventually getting knocked out. Now they might not be in the next round but for some earning more money from a replay could help them no end. The teams were Stevenage who held Reading at home, Carlisle did the same at home against manager less Sheff Wed. Mansfield actually managed it away from home vs Cardiff and Norwich kept Chelsea at bay at Carrow Road.

Aston Villa made ten changes to their team for the match and it worked initially as they took the lead against Peterborough, but then they collapsed and lost to the League One side by three goals to one. Ian Holloway’s bad run of FA Cup matches continued after his QPR side lost 1-0 at home to MK Dons, that now seven losses in his last eight games at this stage of the cup for Holloway.

The lowest ranked side still in the whole competition are still Yeovil after they beat Bradford to reach the fourth round for only the third time since 1949. Bizarrely Bradford haven’t scored an away goal in the cup since that famous game at against Chelsea in 2015 at Stamford Bridge. Another upset happened at Doncaster where two League One teams met. High flying Doncaster are near the top of the division but were knocked out after losing 1-0 against relegation threatened Rochdale.

John Stead and the FA Cup go hand in hand

Now John Stead and the FA Cup go hand in hand and he was at it again as he scored an absolutely stunning left footed screamer to give his League Two side Notts County a win over Championship side Brentford.
