Even though Blackburn Rovers are near the bottom of the EFL Championship table, they are still two leagues up the domestic ladder on Wrexham and that talent gap will eventually come into play. Wrexham also haven’t been at their best, going down to 10 men in a 1-0 loss to Newport County last time out to see a three-match losing streak across all competitions end.

The key for Wrexham will be stopping midfielder Sammie Szmodics, who has 16 goals for Blackburn Rovers this season. The Red Dragons will be counting on Elliot Lee and Paul Mullin to score. That duo has combined for 23 goals this season.

Even if Wrexham play at their best, I think their FA Cup run ends in the fourth round against a superior side.
