FA Cup fixtures
A look ahead to the weekend matches in the English FA Cup
Derby v Blackburn
Pride Park Stadium, Today, 3pm
Derby are likely to rest Craig Bryson after he returned in the east midlands derby against Nottingham Forest last weekend. Michael Jacobs could replace Bryson in the starting line-up against Rovers, although Ben Davies is also an option.
Blackburn manager Michael Appleton faces a selection headache at right-back. Chelsea loanee Todd Kane is cup-tied, Adam Henley remains out with a hamstring problem and Bradley Orr is not due to return from his loan spell at Ipswich until next week. Forward Josh King is back in training but may not be risked, while Mauro Formica has been loaned to Italian side Palermo until the end of the season.
Match odds: Home 6-5 Away 21-10 Draw 23-10
Middlesbrough v Aldershot
Riverside Stadium, Today, 3.00pm
Middlesbrough full-back Justin Hoyte has a hip problem and will undergo a fitness test as will striker Scott McDonald (tight hamstring).
Central defender Jonathan Woodgate (calf) is working his way back to full fitness, as is striker Ishmael Miller (ankle). Midfielder Muzzy Carayol could return to the squad following knee surgery.
Danny Hylton returns from suspension for Aldershot just in time to fill the void left by fellow striker Dani Lopez, who has returned to parent club Stevenage following a loan spell.
New loan signing Lionel Ainsworth made his bow as a second-half substitute in midweek and may make a full debut but Terrell Forbes is cup-tied.
Match odds: Home 3-10 Away 8-1 Draw 4-1
Brighton v Arsenal
Falmer Stadium, Today, 3pm
Brighton will check on defender Bruno, sidelined for the past five matches. Inigo Calderon will continue at right back if he does not make it. Former Spain midfielder Vicente could feature after making his first league start of the season at Blackburn in midweek.
Casper Ankergren may get the nod ahead of Tomasz Kuszczak in goal, while Argentinian striker Leonardo Ulloa is awaiting his debut after joining from Spanish side Almeria.
Arsenal will be without captain Thomas Vermaelen, but midfielders Abou Diaby and Tomas Rosicky are set to be available again. Mikel Arteta and Francis Coquelin remain out. Forward Gervinho is away at the African Nations Cup and goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is not yet in contention.
Match odds: Home 17-10 Away 7-10 Draw 11-4
Norwich City v Luton Town
Carrow Road, Today, 3.00pm
Declan Rudd is expected to play in goal for Norwich, while fit-again midfielder Andrew Surman, playmaker David Fox and winger Elliott Bennett are likely to get a chance to impress.
Full-back Steven Whittaker (hip) has resumed full training this week so could come back into contention, but centre-half Sebastien Bassong (calf) may be rested again while striker Steve Morison (thigh) and goalkeeper John Ruddy (thigh) remain sidelined.
JJ O’Donnell will return to the Luton squad after suffering a broken nose during the 1-0 win over Wolves in the previous round. Striker Jon Shaw (foot) is also expected to be fit while defender Simon Ainge and winger Scott Neilson are both cup-tied.
Match odds: Home 1-3 Away 7-1 Draw 19-5
Macclesfield Town v Wigan Ath
Moss Rose Stadium, Today, 3pm
Pablo Mills is suspended for Macclesfield but the Silkmen may be able to welcome back defender Carl Martin. He was absent for the league victory against Kidderminster last weekend. Stefan Payne is cup-tied.
Roger Espinoza and Angelo Henriquez are likely to start after making their Wigan debuts in the third-round win over Bournemouth, while Callum McManaman and Fraser Fyvie could also make rare appearances. Arouna Koné is on African Nations Cup duty with the Ivory Coast while Antolin Alcaraz (groin), Ivan Ramis (knee), Adrian Lopez (hamstring), midfielders Ben Watson (broken leg) and Albert Crusat (knee) and striker Ryo Miyaichi (ankle) are unavailable.
