We’re all cidered up and we’re gonna win the cup…

Its FA Cup round 2. Its non league Hereford. Away.

Hereford and County both have reputations in the competition. Hereford, giant killers, most notably whilst a non-league outfit seeing off the might of Newcastle United. Stockport County the league club that slips up against non-league opposition.

So lets get real here. Hereford are favourites to win with the bookmakers. In front of what should be a raucous crowd at Edgar Street they will come tearing into a County side that have their ears burning from an angry Chris Turner. County meet the side that knocked Port Vale out of the LDV Vans Trophy.

So a cup shock on the cards? Very much so… County to win 2-1!
