FA Cup Preview
The FA Cup is all about huge upsets, and we could see one of the greatest in recent years on Thursday. National League side Boreham Wood are the lowest ranked side remaining in the competition this season, and have shown throughout the rounds that they could have the tools to hurt Everton.
They produced the shock of the season so far in the fourth round of the competition, as they beat Championship high-flyers Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. In truth, the 1-0 win was the very least that they deserved, as they dominated the fixture throughout.
However, the hero on the night was Mark Ricketts, who scored the winner just before the half time break. Everton will be extremely wary of their rivals this week, as Boreham Wood are yet to concede a goal in the main competition, and have scored nine in the four rounds that they have played.
Everton have a strong record against non-league opposition, as they have progressed from their last ten ties. Their most recent fixture against non-league opposition came as they beat Tamworth in January 2012.
The Toffees have a fine record at this stage of the competition, as they have reached the quarterfinals of the competition on eleven of the 13 occasions that they have reached the fifth round. They were last knocked out at this stage of the competition by Reading eleven years ago.
Everton saw off Brentford in the fourth round of the competition, with Yerry Mina, Richarlison and Andros Townsend all scoring in a 4-1 win at Goodison Park.
Everton vs Boreham Wood Head to Head
This is the first ever meeting between the two sides in any competition. Meanwhile, it is also the first time that the visitors have come up against a side in the top-flight.
Everton vs Boreham Wood Prediction
The FA Cup is an extremely special competition, and there is always one shock in the round. Everton’s league form has been disastrous throughout the season, which means we will be taking a hopeful punt on the Draw/Boreham Wood selection in the double chance market.
