The English Premier League and Championship take a break this weekend with the Third Round of the FA Cup taking centre stage with a host of Caltex Socceroos set to be in action.
He’s a wrap of where a few of them will be playing.
RYAN SET FOR HISTORIC ENGLISH FOOTBALL FIRST
All eyes will be on Brighton’s home clash with Crystal Palace on Tuesday morning (AEDT), with the tie to be the first competitive club match in England to use the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).
Ryan has been in excellent tough for Brighton of late, keeping a clean sheet in their most recent goalless draw against Newcastle United.
Brighton and Palace have already met in the EPL this season, with the clash in November ending 0-0 and another tight contest is likely at the AMEX Stadium.
MOOY’S HUDDERSFIELD TO TACKLE CHAMPIONSHIP STRUGGLERS
Aaron Mooy will be hoping the FA Cup brings about a change of luck for his Terriers who are without a win in their last four EPL games.
Huddersfield travel to the Macron Stadium on Sunday morning (AEDT) to play Bolton, who sit just two places above the relegation zone in the Championship.
WRIGHT LOOKING TO STING THE HORNETS AGAIN
Bailey Wright’s promotion-chasing Bristol City face EPL opposition with a clash against Watford at Vicarage Road.
The two sides have already met this season in the League (Carabao) Cup, with Bristol City causing a shock with a 3-2 win at the home of the EPL club.
Can the Championship side cause another Cup boilover in the early hours of Sunday morning (AEDT)?
MIDFIELD TRIO WITH GREAT CHANCE TO PROGRESS
Three Caltex Socceroos midfielders from the Championship will all be hopeful of getting through to the Fourth Round with winnable ties over the weekend.
Mile Jedinak’s Aston Villa should have enough quality to get past League One outfit Peterborough at Villa Park, while Jackson Irvine’s Hull City also face lower league opposition in Blackburn Rovers.
And Massimo Luongo’s QPR are at home against League One side MK Dons.
Elsewhere, James Meredith’s Millwall face a home tie against Barnsley and Brad Smith’s Bournemouth host Wigan.
