Betting Tip: Port Vale @ 2/3 with williamhill

Maidenhead United have never reached the second round of the FA Cup. However, they have a chance to make history on Thursday night when they face Port Vale at York Road.

A last-gasp equaliser from James Mulley sent the visiting supporters into raptures ten days ago, with the Magpies nicking a draw against their League One opponents and the replay means extra cash for the non-league side whatever happens.

However, Alan Devonshire will hope that an upset can be caused, with Maidenhead going pretty well in their own league and hoping to feature in the National League next season.

They have won five of their eight home matches and come into this FA Cup replay off the back of four consecutive wins at York Road, with the bookies making them a fancy price to land victory.

However, they will be up against a Vale side who have won back-to-back League One matches and the Staffordshire club really dominated the original tie. They should have been out of sight before that equaliser.

Vale sit in mid-table of League One and a professional job should see them over the line in this game, with three divisions separating the full-time club from their part-time opponents.

Make no mistake, Port Vale need the cash pretty badly when it comes to a potentially money-spinning cup run and an away game at League Two side Exeter represents an opportunity to make the third round proper.
