Before we can move into the fourth round of the FA Cup, we have a few third-round replays to get out of the way and the first few get underway this evening with some intriguing ties in prospect.

Leicester City couldn't find a way past League One side Fleetwood Town in the last meeting, however most pundits believe that a one-sided encounter should ensue at the King Power Stadium tonight (live coverage on BT Sport 2).

Mansfield Town and Cardiff City couldn't be separated in the Welsh capital earlier this month and the Stags will be confident of their chances of going one better in front of their home fans this evening, however Cardiff City will prove a tough obstacle and we're far from confident of the Stags' chances.

Sheffield Wednesday and Carlisle United should serve up plenty of excitement when they lock horns at Hillsborough. A large contingent of travelling fans will likely make their way down from Cumbria (weather permitting), however will they be heading home with something for their troubles?

West Ham United will be anxious to keep the momentum going when they face Shrewsbury Town tonight, the Hammers heading into this match on the back of an excellent 4-1 win at Huddersfield Town, while Reading could be in for a tough night when they go head-to-head with a Stevenage side which were the better team in the original tie.

Who will be tonight's winners and losers? Here's what we think...
