Accrington Stanley vs Derby County Match Preview
Accrington Stanley are trying to reach the FA Cup fifth round for the first time against a Derby side who are having an eventful campaign in the knockout competitions this term.
This is the sixth season, and third in 10 years, that Stanley have made it through to round four but they have yet to go any further. Earlier this month, the League One club took the scalp of another Championship side with a 1-0 win over Ipswich Town at their Wham Stadium.
Considering Ipswich are bottom of the Championship table, it is likely to be more difficult against Derby who are chasing promotion from that division to the Premier League.
The Rams have faced three top-flight teams in the cups this term and it is to their credit that they have scored two goals against each of Chelsea, Manchester United and Southampton (twice), knocking out the latter two clubs away from home in penalty shootouts.
Manager Frank Lampard will be hopeful his side can continue their free-scoring exploits on this visit to Lancashire.
However, this tight little ground, which rarely attracts more than 4,000 spectators, is not the easiest venue for a visiting team and rather than back Derby at odds-on we will side with Accrington to earn a replay.
