FA Cup - 1st Round ------ QPR - 3rd in Division 2, 28 points from 16 matches Grimsby Town - 17th in Division 2, 22 points from 17 matches ------ 8 November Blundell Park ------ Rangers News Things aren't looking good for Rangers as they attempt to start a run in the FA Cup. Bircham and Barton are probably unavailable (but should be available on Tuesday against Brentford), while Gallen (likely), Padula, Edghill, and Bean (all three 50/50) are all "battling to be fit" for the match after knocks picked up against Dag & Red. Further, Nick Culkin has a virus and may not make the substitute's bench. Of course, longer-term injuries to Shittu, Furlong, and Rose make them unavailable.

Since it's not a League/League Cup/LDV match, the League site doesn't have it listed. I couldn't find it on the FA site.
