The FA Cup enters the Second Round stage this weekend with the remaining 40 clubs from the SkyBet Football League One, SkyBet Football League Two and The National League battling it out for a place in the Third Round draw.

The victorious 20 clubs will be joined in the hat by Premier League giants such as Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.

The72 takes a look at three potential cup shocks which could occur during the Second Round weekend.

Sutton United v Cheltenham Town

Former National League winners Cheltenham Town have struggled to adapt to life back in the English Football League following last season’s promotion and The Robins find themselves in the relegation zone in SkyBet League Two.

FA Cup Second Round opponents Sutton United recorded one of the FA Cup’s greatest giant killings in 1989 when they beat First Division club Coventry City 2-1 in The Third Round and Paul Doswell’s side may be set to shock once again. The U’s are going well in The National League while they won their First Round tie at Dartford 6-3.

Lincoln City v Oldham Athletic

Lincoln City are flying high in The National League and are unbeaten in their last 13 matches in all competitions. The Imps are just a point behind league leaders Forest Green Rovers while they have a game in hand over the Gloucestershire outfit.

Danny Cowley’s side face an Oldham Athletic side who are battling to avoid relegation in SkyBet League One and are winless in five league matches. The Latics are currently working under a transfer embargo as a result of failure to pay club costs and there is a real chance that the non league Imps could add to their woes.

Woking v Accrington Stanley

After SkyBet League Two outfit Accrington Stanley came so agonisingly close to promotion last season, Stanley have found themselves in the familiar position of a relegation scrap this time around. John Coleman’s side have failed to win any of their last six league matches as they have slipped closer to the relegation trap door.

FA Cup Second Round opponents Woking have struggled themselves this season but The Cards may have finally turned the corner after recording seven points from their last four matches. Woking beat Gateshead 3-0 at Kingfield on Saturday and Garry Hill’s side are ready for a battle against Stanley at the weekend.
