Match preview

Following some classic FA Cup magic in Devon just nine days ago, these two will meet again.

In the pouring rain at Plainmoor, Derby looked set to cruise through, leading 2-0 courtesy of William Osula’s brace.

Asa Hall’s penalty then got Torquay back in the tie before, in the 96th minute, Will Goodwin bundled home an equaliser that sparked wild celebrations.

So, these two will go again in the East Midlands, and there must be a winner on the night.

Derby County won this competition in 1946 but, after spending a large part of last season in administration, currently find themsleves down in League One.

Paul Warne’s men won 3-1 in Milton Keynes on Saturday, so have moved back up to sixth in the third-tier.

Torquay United don’t care one iota about that, as they seek to reach round two for the first time in 11 years.

The Gulls are from two divisions below their hosts, the National League, and are second bottom, following Saturday’s 5-1 hammering at the hands of Chesterfield.

So, a home victory should be on the cards at Pride Park; the victors will travel to Newport County in round two.
