Saints Get Home Draw In The FA Cup
Monday, 2nd Dec 2019 19:39
Saints have been drawn at home in the FA Cup and will be quietly confident that they can progress into the 4th Round.
Saints have been drawn against Huddersfield Town in the 3rd round of the FA Cup and will be pleased with the tie.
Although the Yorkshire club were in the Premier League last season, they are struggling in the Championship and lie only two points off of the relegation zone after a poor start.
Like Saints their problems are defensive and the 19 goals they have conceded away from home is beaten only by Luton who have conceded 25.
The tie will be played on the first weekend of 2020, hopefully Saints can have a good run in the FA Cup and use it to kick start their revival in the New Year.

Matches of Yesteryear - Cheltenham v U's 22/2/03 by wessex_exile
The U’s travel to the Globe Arena tomorrow, aiming at the very least to keep the unbeaten run going – though in truth after three somewhat disappointing draws against Exeter, Crawley and Stevenage, surely nothing less than three points is acceptable? Ahead of this trip, the Matches of Yesteryear random number generator has chosen a match which for me has a particularly bitter-sweet poignancy.

One name in Rochdale’s modern history that seems to be knocked more than most is that of Graham Barrow.

Ahead of tomorrow’s match at Stevenage, the Matches of Yesteryear random match selector has chosen one with some familiar faces in, one or two of whom we will see tomorrow, and one we probably won’t.
Matches of Yesteryear - Notts County v U's 21/3/98 by wessex_exile
And so we come to the end of 2019 – halfway through a season that promises much, so it seems appropriate that we dip into the 1997/98 season for this blog. May I take the opportunity to wish you all a very Healthy, Prosperous and most of all Happy New Year, starting of course with three points for the U’s against Crawley tomorrow.
Matches of Yesteryear - Brighton v U's 27/10/01 by wessex_exile
A little later than usual for this one, as I was actually in Colchester yesterday seeing family. Not particularly good timing given the U’s are at home today, but we’re all fairly far flung these days, so the opportunity to get a sizeable amount of the family in one place at the same time couldn’t be overlooked lightly.
