72+: FA Cup third round special

Update: 2022-01-071


Aaron Paul is joined by Neil Warnock, Nottingham Forest striker Lyle Taylor and former Hull City defender Alex Bruce to look ahead to the third round of the FA Cup.

Kidderminster are the lowest-ranked team left in the competition. Their manager Russ Penn tells us how they plan to make Reading feel uncomfortable when they visit Aggborough Stadium.

Lyle lets us know how the Forest players are feeling ahead of their game against Arsenal and reveals how Steve Cooper has transformed the team from relegation favourites to play-off contenders.

Manchester City have seven players and 14 members of staff isolating after positive covid cases so how big an opportunity is this for Swindon Town to cause a cup upset?

And speaking of upsets, with the FA Cup celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, we relive some of the classic memories from the competition. Jonathan Stead joins us to reminisce on his special goal as Bradford came from 2-0 down to beat Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge and knock them out in the fourth round in 2015. Alex retells Hull’s journey to the final in 2014 when they were beaten by Arsenal in extra time and Neil remembers Sheffield United’s controversial semi-final with Arsenal in 2003 and how Sir Alex Ferguson tried to help his side out.
