Who? Darlington vs Walsall in FA Cup First Round Replay 2019/20
Where? Blackwell Meadows, Darlington
When? 19:45 GMT, Wednesday 19th November 2019 (Live on BT Sport)
National League North side Darlington earned themselves a fantastic replay as they take on League Two Walsall at Blackwell Meadows on Wednesday evening, live on BT Sport. The winner will play Oxford United in the next round.
A crazy cup game full of drama, goals and sendings off saw ten-men Darlington seconds away from a famous win at Bescot Stadium. A 97th minute equaliser, also by a ten-men side in Walsall, rescued a replay for the League Two club. Darlington had two first half substitutions to make and scored both their goals in quick succession both after the sending off of Daniel Scarr. Heading into the game at Walsall, The Quakers were unbeaten in seven games in all competitions with six wins. That form and confidence helped them in punching above their weight and earning a replay.
For Walsall, they are having a poor time of things as of late. The 2-2 draw with The Quakers ended a six match losing streak for The Saddlers. They currently sit 21st in League Two will just five wins in the league, but chances of relegation reduced with just the bottom team set to get relegated. Their form has improved since the FA Cup tie, having recorded back-to-back wins for the first time since the start of October. They smashed League Two highflyers Forest Green Rovers 6-0 in the EFL Trophy and Cambridge United 2-1 in the league. This could be a great opportunity to continue their recent form and put a run of wins together like during September.
