Do the non televised ifollow games get made available through ifollow either here or abroad? Was hoping to watch from home but I don't think will be able to.

Would expect to see some squad rotation here and as long as we're competitive and play ok, then not overly bothered by the result as much as a cup run would be nice.

Doesn't look like we're taking many based on the last ticket office tweet

Not televised at all. Suspect Lindsey views this as a bit of a free hit. Hell stick with the formation that blitzed Mansfield and hope for a similar outcome whereby we score more than we let in.

When does Williams join up with Wales? Id leave him out of this game, play Darcy in the 10 role and replace Darcy with Reed. Hopefully Tim Brooke Taylor is back. Brennan has impressed given his chance.

Could be a chance for Roberts, too - cracking header when he came on.

Cant believe we can have players with the quality of Reed to come on off the bench.

No need for wholesale changes with a free week before & after, unless someone has been carrying a niggle etc and assuming that the loanees will be allowed to play.
Hopefully any changes from Saturday will be kept within the regular matchday 18, so wouldn't want to see a Trophy type lineup.

Considering the end result last season, the FA Cup needs be taken seriously.
Given that there are only 2 league games in November & both at home, then fitting a replay in shouldn't be an issue either.

Just waiting on revised train timetable tomorrow before deciding on whether to make the trip.
No guarantee that it will even be possible.

Tenner a ticket is not half bad, is this just a cup thing or are all Stockport tickets as cheap?

I really like the FA Cup despite the fact that it became totally devalued with the advent of the Premier League bollocks. It really pisses me off when even the crappier end of the pyramid put out weakened teams. The City game last season was one of the highlights of the season and a good little earner for the club.

I shall be going on Saturday because i am totally committed in my support for the club and it's only 10 miles from home.

I'm back in the UK on Friday for 9 nights so going to this, good eat in fish and chip shop up there that my old man and I have frequented several times over the years, will be twice in one season on Saturday after visiting before the league fixture.  Got Tranmere on the 12th too.

I looked at the train timings and the train line said no tickets available for my selected journey. Unsure if its strike action or just a popular route close to Christmas.

Don't be so hard on yourself 😀 Fair play for persevering.

It's pretty shite if it's sunny as well, from recollection when we went, almost an entire half was looking into a low winter sun, could see sod all.
