We at Football League World will look at the lower league clubs who could FA Cup history by knocking out higher league clubs.

Let us know whether you agree or disagree in your comments below and predict your FA Cup upset!

Salford City vs Notts County

This is a massive game for the Manchester club who have featured in BBC’s documentary, the class of 92’.

The club are owned by Manchester United legends, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Neville brothers, Phil and Gary.

They are an expanding club and from watching the documentary, you should expect them to be in the Football League in the next few seasons.

There will be a lot of publicity surrounding this game as it will be broadcast on BBC and Salford’s ground will be rocking.

Notts County are midtable in League Two and all the pressure will be on them to perform.

AFC Wimbledon vs Forest Green

AFC Wimbledon made it to the third round to the FA Cup last season and made Liverpool sweat, narrowly losing 2-1 to the Merseyside club.

Now, they face conference high-flyers Forest Green Rovers who are top of the league and narrowly missed out on playing Wimbledon in League Two this season, after they lost to Bristol Rovers in the play-offs.

The tie could be a tale of the two beasts, Jon Parkin and Adebayo Akinfenwa, either one could be the difference to pushing their clubs into the second round.

Sheffield United vs Worcester City

Worcester City joint-manager Carl Heeley was overjoyed with their first round opponents Sheffield United and is targeting another major shock in the competition.

The National League North club won at League One side Coventry in last season’s first round, before going out on penalties against Scunthorpe.

The Worcester players will know that they will go to Bramall Lane with every chance of knocking out the League One side.

Didcot Town vs Exeter City

The Oxfordshire club will host League Two Exeter, who are currently 87 places above them in the football pyramid.

Didcot, who play in the Southern League Division One South & West, are the lowest-ranked team in the first round.

Exeter will be wary of their non-league opponents after they found themselves on the wrong end of an upset at the same stage in 2014.

They were beaten by Warrington Town who were also the lowest ranked team left in the competition.
