Predicta competition is all about the FA Trophy

Torquay United enter the quarter-finals of the FA Trophy at Woking this weekend and the chance for a Wembley trip dominates our Predicta competition.
The Gulls at Woking has been an ongoing theme over the last couple of years and a big chance for Gary Johnson’s men to take a big step toward the biggest stage in English football.
It is, however, a stranger dichotomy in some of the other last eight games, which involve teams in leagues that have decided to void their season. It all adds up to some tough games to predict.
Our Premier League fixtures include a game that nobody could have foreseen as a top-four clash when this strange season started back in September.
West Ham have arguably been the story of the campaign but a trip to an awesome Manchester City side represents the toughest possible challenge.
Our other game will see an Aston Villa side take on the unique Leeds United challenge without their talisman Jack Grealish.

MANCHESTER CITY v WEST HAM UTD - City win 2-0
A potential cracker - City in title form, Hammers on a roll, but Pep's men will get to Moyes' boys eventually.
LEEDS UTD v ASTON VILLA - Leeds win 3-1
Villa were outclassed by Leicester and they may be undone again by inconsistent but ever-vibrant Leeds.
NOTTS COUNTY v OXFORD CITY - Notts win 2-0
This is Oxford's 'Wembley' and they will scrap like mad, but Notts will be too good, too fit for them in the end.
ALDERSHOT TOWN v HEREFORD UNITED - Shots win 1-0
NL North/South sides coming off enforced break for the Trophy, but Hereford don't concede many - Shots, just.
DARLINGTON v HORNCHURCH - Hornchurch win 2-1
Sprinked with ex-NL/NL South players, Isthmian League Hornchurch can spring a surprise at faraway Darlo.
WOKING v TORQUAY UNITED - A draw 1-1 (90mins)
The Cards' only chance of glory this season, and which Gulls team will turn up? Both short of goals, so…
