The FA Cup has a reputation for giant killings and it did not fail to disappoint in the Third Round, with the most notable upsets seeing Kidderminster Harriers defeat Reading, Cambridge United down Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest get the better of Arsenal.
Kidderminster, who play in the National League North (sixth tier) have been rewarded with a tie at home to Premier League side West Ham United. “All I can say is what a group of players, what a group of people behind the scenes,” said Kidderminster manager Jimmy O’Connor. “It sounds melodramatic, but it feels like there’s life being breathed into the football club.”
Cambridge will welcome Luton Town, while Forest will have a shot at the defending FA Cup champions – and Midlands rivals – Leicester at the City Ground. “I’m pleased for the players,” said Nottingham manager Steve Cooper of the win over the Gunners. “The supporters deserve that as much as anybody. We enjoyed the game. It was one we had to commit to, we had to go into it with a positive mindset because of the challenge. We’re here to compete, we’re here to play well and win games.”
The David-v-Goliath tie of the round sees Chelsea welcome League One’s Plymouth Argyle, with the latter club’s director of football, Neil Dewsnip, looking forward to the trip to West London: “We’re very excited and it’s a fantastic opportunity for the players to show what they can do against the best team in Europe. There are a lot of things going on that are very, very positive. We just want to keep on building and improving because there is still just under half of the season left.”
The Fourth Round also features some all-Premier League ties, with Everton hosting Brentford, Brighton & Hove Albion visiting Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers welcoming Norwich City to Molineux, while other clashes to look out for are Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool at home to Middlesbrough, Fulham and Cardiff City respectively.
