A sprinkling of non-league teams are hoping to secure a place in the FA Cup third round this weekend and in the process give themselves a chance of landing a plum tie against Premier League opposition but the value across the second round isn’t in predicting upsets, it’s actually in an all League One showdown at Boundary Park, where Oldham host Doncaster.
The Latics have lost four of their last six and are pretty patchy in front of their own supporters while Rovers go into the clash on the back of four straight wins and have an impressive seven away successes to their name on the road.
Dean Saunders’ men also saw off Athletic in the league on Tuesday so they have a psychological edge and they’re tremendous value at 17/10 via Skybet.
Coventry meanwhile, won this competition 25 years ago but have fallen on hard times in recent years, hence their involvement at this stage, but they can book a third round berth at the expense of League Two Morecambe at odds of 4/6 with Coral.
Double on Doncaster and Coventry – 7/2 (Coral)
