FA Cup is famous for producing the ultimate shocking results and this could be one of those games where the underdog pulls an absolute rabbit out of the hat.

Oxford City vs Northampton Town: FA Cup
Date & Time: 01:15 AM (IST), 10 November
Venue: Court Place Farm
Oxford City: They are in South Division and have started the season with 2 wins from first four games, drawing and losing each of the other two games. But this is a different game altogether. They will have to be on the top of their game to even force the penalties. But there's still hope and it exudes from the opponents' struggles.
Northampton Town: The visitors are struggling this season, so much so that relegation to the Football League Two is a possible threat. They have won just three times in 11 league games, and are averaging only a point per game this season. They could do with a win here in this game to get the feel-good-factor back to the club.
Head-to-head (last five meetings):
This will be the first-ever meeting between these two teams in any competition.

Injury Report, Unavailability:
Northampton will be without midfielder Scott Pollock who has been nursing a knee injury and could be out for the foreseeable future.
In addition, wing back Joseph Mills is also out of the active roster these days due to an injury and will miss this match. Aside from these injuries, the Cobblers head coach Keith Curle has no other worries when it comes to the health of the squad.
The form has been an issue for Northampton Town. Head coach Keith Curle could use this game as an impetus for this team's charge in Football League one and give some of the more regular players a place in NOR Playing 11.
NOR Playing 11 (probables):
OXF vs NOR Dream11 Teams
GK: B Dudzinski
DEF: C Bolger, A Sheehan, F Horsfall, A Drewe
MID: S Hoskins, R Fleet, J Roberts
FW: Chukwuemeka (C), Z McEachran, D A Rose (VC)
James Roberts: Was on the scoresheet in the last FA Cup round. He can set the tempo from the midfield with his quick passing and is a threat in front of the goal as well. If you are ready to take a risk, he could be a good bet bet somewhat in Dream 11 prediction teams.
Danny Rose: The 26-year-old has been in good form for Northampton Town. He has scored twice already this season and has that creative game as well.
X-factors, differential picks
Caleb Chukwuemeka: Should start the match, for the 18-year-old has had some brilliant performances from the bench in Football League One. This could be the game where he could lay claim to a more regular spot in NOR Playing11. In fact, Aston Villa are rumoured to be monitoring his progress at the club.
