Town Draw Accrington Stanley Away in FA Cup
Monday, 3rd Dec 2018 19:48
Town have drawn League One Accrington Stanley away in the third round of the FA Cup.
The Blues have never played Kayden Jackson and Janoi Donacien's former club Stanley in a competitive fixture. The duo helped John Coleman's side to the League Two title last season.
Donacien is still on loan from the Lancastrians with his permanent leave to remain - which will trigger the formalising of his £750,000 permanent switch - yet to be confirmed. In the FA Cup parent clubs decide whether their loanees can play against them, which in the circumstances Stanley would appear likely to do.
No current Accrington player has been with the Blues, although keeper-coach Tony Warner had a trial with Town in 1998.
Third round ties are set to be played between Friday 4th and Monday 7th January.
Town's last victory in the tournament came back in January 2010 when they beat Blackpool 2-1 in the third round at Bloomfield Road during Roy Keane’s time in charge.
Last season the Blues were beaten 1-0 at home by Sheffield United, their 13th match without a victory in the competition they won for the only time in 1978.

In all seriousness - this is perfect.
Lambert can say ' do you want to play at grounds like this every week next season? '

Please give us a cup run Ipswich, something to take from this awful season!

Can we leave Jackson and Donacian up there and get a refund?

So we can now add Accrington Stanley to our list of embarrassing cup exits

One of the 12 founder members of the Football League in 1888 - not sure that we have played them before?
At least Jackson and Donacien will know the way!

This has to be one of our best changes of winning a game of football to kick our season.

Intriguing tie. Should be able to concentrate on the league after this one.Also handy to learn the route for the league game next October !

We haven't played them before but Stanley aren't the same Accrington club which was a founder member of the Football League.
|herfie added 20:28 - Dec 3|
Just what’s needed to kick our season!🥴
|herfie added 20:29 - Dec 3|
Kick-start, that is!

We can't put out a weakened side, everyone is weak.
