Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Salford take on Chesterfield at Peninsula Stadium in the FA Cup it what will be their first meeting in a competitive match since December 12, 2018. Back then Chesterfield defeated Salford 2-0 in the National League, meaning that the Lions are hungry for revenge. Gary Bowyer’s men made a slow start to the new League Two campaign, but they have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating both Harrogate and Oldham, while sharing the spoils with Bristol Rovers.
The Lions recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Dag & Red in round 1, and they are seen as favourites to win Sunday’s clash as well. The National League side, on the other hand, did well to beat Southend in the previous round, but they will have a mountain to climb in the Peninsula Stadium clash as Salford are a real force to be reckoned with at home.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Turnbull):
Born in Trowbridge, England, on October 30, 1994, Jordan Turnbull is a professional footballer who plays for Northampton Town as a defender. Turnbull is a product of Swindon Town football academy, but in 2007 he was spotted by Southampton scouts.
Despite signing a professional contract with Southampton, he did not see any game action with the Saints at senior level. The English footballer made no fewer than 86 league appearances for Swindon Town during his loan spell with the Robins, and in 2016 he signed a contract with Coventry City.
Jordan Turnbull spent the 2017/2018 on loan Partick Thistle before joining Northampton Town permanently. Speaking of his international career, the Northampton centre-back has two caps with the England U19 team, and one cap with the England U20. Jordan Turnbull, who is used as a left-back as well, wears the number 6 jersey at Northampton Town. His preferred foot is left.
Highlighted Team (Salford):
Founded during the Second World War (1940) as Salford Central, the League Two side play their home games at Moor Lane. The stadium, which was opened in 1978 and renovated in 2019, can hold up to 5,108 spectators. The Lions wear red jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and black are the dominant colours of their away kit.
Salford City secured promotion to the League 2 at the end of the 2018/19 as they defeated Flyde 3-0 in the National League play-offs final. The match was played at Wembley Stadium, with Touray, Pergianni, and Dieseruvwe scoring for the Lions.
In the 1977/78 season Salford City won their first Manchester Premier Cup trophy, with the team repeating the success the following year. Bury are seen as the club’s main rivals, but their rivalry with the likes of Oldham and Rochdale is pretty big as well.
