Lawro's FA Cup predictions

BBC Sport football expert Mark Lawrenson is pitting his wits against a different guest each week this season.

His opponent for selected ties on FA Cup third-round weekend is Lawrie Sanchez, who famously scored the winner when Wimbledon shocked Liverpool in the 1988 final.

"It doesn't seem like 25 years ago," Sanchez told BBC Sport. "It's a great memory and I have my winner's medal - which I am looking at now - on the wall in my office. Winning things is what football is about for me - you cannot show your grandchildren your wage slip.

"The FA Cup holds lots of special memories for me. I came close to going back for a final as a manager in 2001 with Wycombe but Liverpool got their own back on me in the semi-finals.

"Third-round weekend is a fantastic time, it offers that mix where part-time players can take on the Premier League if they are lucky. Some people would like to tell you that the Premier League is the only thing that matters but the FA Cup shows how vibrant football is further down too."

* Away team to win at home in the replay

A correct result is worth ONE point, while a correct score earns THREE points.

Last week, Lawro took on MOTD commentator Steve Wilson.

Lawro got five results right, with one perfect score, and his score of seven saw him narrowly beat Wilson's tally of six (four correct results, with one perfect score).

This season, we will also be keeping a record of the total scores for Lawro and his guests (below), and showing a table of how the Premier League would look if all Lawro's predictions came off (also at the bottom of the page).
