Wrexham v Brighton & Hove Albion latest odds, news and free bets

An intriguing tie at The Racecourse on Tuesday night, with Wrexham looking to set up a home tie against Newcastle United by beating Brighton after the two sides played out a 1-1 draw at the AMEX Stadium ten days ago

Jake Caskey had put the Seagulls into the lead before Adrian Cieslewicz grabbed an unlikely equaliser which means a long trip to north Wales for Gus Poyet’s team who will also be eager to line up against the Magpies.

The bookmakers are expecting an evenly-matched contest, with Wrexham a 2/1 chance (Bet Victor – £25 free bets) to claim a famous FA Cup victory to go with that giant-killing of Arsenal in the 1990’s.

Andy Morrell’s team are top of the Blue Square Premier this season having won 17 of their 27 games and the score nearly two goals per game which suggests they have every chance of causing an upset.

Morrell himself is likely to lead the line and the player-manager is an 8/1 chance to score the first goal of the game, while Jake Speight can also be backed at that price.

Brighton will look to make the three divisions’ difference count and they could prove too strong at odds of 7/5 (Ladbrokes – £50 free betting) providing they can handle the early storm coming their way.

Recent wins over Southampton and Bristol City have set themselves up nicely for this contest, with the visitors available at 7/1 to secure victory.
