Match preview

This is why we love the FA Cup.

This Monday night tie in Sandhurst sees a seventh-tier club take on one of English football’s great fallen giants.

Ipswich Town won this competition in 1978, beating Arsenal at Wembley, also lifting the UEFA Cup three years later.

These days, the Tractor Boys are enduring a fourth successive season in League One, last competing in the Premier League two decades ago.

Under Kieran McKenna, the optimism has returned to Suffolk, with Saturday’s crazy 4-4 draw at Charlton leaving them second.

In that one, the score was 2-2 after 90 minutes, the Blues then led 4-2, only to concede in the 96th and 99th minutes.

However, Ipswich’s recent FA Cup record is abysmal, winning just two of 15 ties since 2010.

So, could an upset be on the cards?

Bracknell Town meantime were promoted to the Southern League Premier Division South last season; that’s part of the seventh-tier, incase you weren’t up to speed.

To get this far, the Robins have already dumped out Harrow Borough, Chesham United, Yate Town and Banbury United.

So, unsurprisingly, Bracknell are competing in the first round proper for the very first time, and have been handed this dream draw.

Will Bottom Meadow play host to a famous FA Cup shock?
