Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Tuesday’s football game at Pride Park pits together Derby County and Torquay, the two teams who are eyeing a spot in the FA Cup last 128. The two teams played out a 2-2 draw at Plainmoor earlier this month, but the Rams are seen as hot favourites to win the replay. Talented forward William Osula should be recalled to the starting XI after scoring a brace in the reverse fixture, with Richard Stearman and David McGoldrick pushing for a start as well.
The Gulls, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-1 loss to Chesterfield, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. As for the away side, talented midfielder Brett McGavin is pushing for a recall after coming as a substitute in the last league match.
Highlighted Player (Korey Smith):
After spending his youth career at Norwich City, Korey Smith made his first-team debut for the Canaries in January 2008 in the FA Cup clash against Charlton Athletic. Smith played 67 league games for Norwich City and he scored 4 goals for the club, but in 2013 he signed a two-year deal with Oldham Athletic.
The midfielder who was born on 31 January, 1991, scored one goal in 42 appearances for the club in the 2013/2014 campaign and on 27 June, 2014, he joined Bristol City for an undisclosed fee. It has to be noted that he won Johnstone’s Paint Trophy with the Robins in his first season with the team.
Korey Smith was born in Hatfield, England and he has two younger sisters, Alice and Harriet. Smith is a defensive midfielder, but he is capable of operating as central midfielder and right back as well. The Bristol City footballer also represented the likes of Barnsley and Yeovil Town (on loan) in the past.
