Torquay United vs Derby County betting tips: FA Cup First Round preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Only 22 clubs have appeared in more FA Cup Finals than Derby County’s four, with their sole triumph in this competition coming in 1946.

Right now though, the Rams are rebuilding, competing in England’s third-tier for the first time since 1985/86.

Paul Warne’s team are just below the League One play-off places, with the new boss making a positive start since taking over in late-September.

In the cup, Derby haven’t featured in the first round for 37 years, never falling before round three in their entire history.

Will the Rams avoid being on the wrong end of an upset in Devon?

Meanwhile, this’ll be a huge occasion for Torquay United, who haven’t been an EFL club since 2013/14.

In the fourth qualifying round, the Gulls needed a replay to see off Hampton & Richmond Borough from the division below.

So, Torquay are targeting a place in round two for the first time in 11 years, losing their last five ties at this hurdle.

Will Derby be too strong at Plainmoor?
