Everton v Tamworth: Live Gamethread

Wembley - a trip back here would be nice.
Wembley - a trip back here would be nice.

Ahh, the magic of the FA Cup. The third round weekend is one of the most memorable in the football calendar, with Premier League giants nervously trying to avoid upsets to lower league opposition.

The magic of the Cup will be on show at Goodison, where non-league Tamworth bid to become the first side from outside the football league to knock Everton out of the FA Cup since 1912.

Optimism and hope will be high among the visitors but conspicuous by its absence among the Toffees. The defeat to Bolton ruined any fragile New Year's confidence built up over their four game unbeaten run. Injuries to key players - including a six week lay-off for Phil Jagielka - made things feel even worse.


A good result today with some goals to boot may help us all feel a bit better. I dread to think what will happen if we lose!

I will have to two teams as soon as I have them - Feel free to comment below!
