Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Thanks to back-to-back wins over Tadcaster and Cambridge City, Darlington set up a meeting with Swindon Town in the FA Cup round 1. The National League side aim to claim a major scalp in Saturday’s football match, but they face an uphill task against Swindon Town. The Robins have been anything but impressive in the League One this season, meaning that they are eager to record a morale-boosting win in the FA Cup.
Swindon Town defeated promotion-chasing Hull City in their last home game in the League One, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Darlington. This will be the first meeting between the two teams since February 2017. Back then the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, but home win should be considered this time out as the Robins are eager to get back on course.
