Backing a surprise draw

There will be an awful lot of people turning their nose up at this prediction owing to how vastly superior the Rams squad is compared to Torquay's, however, don't shoot us down just yet. Derby are likely to make a few changes to their lineup for this game and form wise they've drawn three of their last four games – it's hardly amazing form. Torquay meanwhile have only lost one of their last four games and, actually, each of the last two meetings between these teams have ended in draws. If you then consider that a trip to Pride Park could be the biggest occasion of a lot of the Torquay's players careers and the prospect of them taking this game beyond 90 minutes is not at all impossible – and it's certainly better value that of a Derby win.

Goals galore

With our second prediction we're backing over 3.5 goals. The duo shared four goals when they met just last week but the general form of both sides have been fairly high scoring. Three of Derby's last five games have gone over the 3.5 mark whilst Torquay have seen each of their last five have gone north of the all important 3.5 mark; in fact, their last two games have yielded a whopping 12 goals. With that considered, a low scoring match is not to be expected!

Will Derby's quality shine through?

There is no doubting that Derby are streets ahead of Torquay in pure quality terms but the FA Cup is the one competition that is known for throwing up shock results that are almost impossible to imagine. Torquay will need lady luck to smile on them but they'll definitely leave it all out there and anything can happen!

Derby are big favourites here but they'll ring the changes and will need to guard against complacency. Expect a strong bench featuring the likes of Richard Stearman to call upon if things get sticky.

Derby Predicted lineup – Wildsmith, Roberts, Forsyth, Rooney, Smith, Dobbin, Bird, Sibley, Thompson, Osula, Collins

Torquay are likely to name a similar lineup to that which held Derby last week – it's the least those players deserve after a heroic 90 minutes. Keep a special eye on Dillon De Silva – he's bagged a couple of goals recently.

Torquay Predicted lineup – Halstead, Donnellan, Ness, Ellis, Moxey, De Silva, Lapslie, Hall, Wearne, Goodwin, Jarvis
