The FA Cup has been spreading plenty of it’s magic again this weekend with 20 Second Round ties taking place.

A number of giant-killings have occurred with National League sides Sutton United and Barrow securing 2-1 victories over Cheltenham Town and Bristol Rovers to give themselves a chance of landing a draw against the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool or Manchester City in the Third Round.

English Football League clubs have also been causing upsets with Cambridge United beating Coventry City 4-0 and Wycombe Wanderers recording a 5-0 victory at Chesterfield in two of the results of the round.

There was no shock at the Tameside Stadium in Ashton-Under-Lyne where SkyBet League One side AFC Wimbledon came from three goals down to beat National League North outfit Curzon Ashton 4-3 in one of the greatest FA Cup matches of all time.
