    A future PL star among the ranks…

    The three you were hoping to see may not be in the squad, but there is a star of the future in the squad to make you aware of.

    Aston Villa loanee Caleb Chukwuemeka is on the bench for Crawley Town, and he is the older brother of now Chelsea starlet Carney Chukwuemeka.

    The Northampton born brothers both played for Aston Villa's academy, and have gone on to feature for the first team since then, as well as representing England at youth level.

    Caleb Chukwuemeka (Right) could be a future star of the Premier League…

    Why are they not playing?

    The lads, Tobi in particular, came under a lot of pressure and criticism on social media in the week, after it was announced that they would be training with the side, and could potentially feature today.

    This is what Tobi had to say on Twitter on the matter…

    Everyone needs to chill though I'm just gonna join in with a training session😭I been a football fan my whole life, I know the importance of the FA Cup to players and fans alike so not trying to jeopardize that for anyone. Just putting more eyes on the club and showing support🙏

    It is completely understandable as to why they were not selected for the match day squad, but many fans will feel that it would have been nice to see them feature, and would have undoubtedly been great publicity for the club.

    Tobi, Manny and Jed left out…

    Unfortunately, there is no Tobi, Manny or Jed in the squad for Crawley Town today.

    That is the harsh reality of being a footballer, that nothing is handed to you on a silver platter, it must be earned.

    Tobi did say on Twitter in midweek that he is just training with the club, so it was an outside shot that one of them would be in the squad today, but we are sure they are here cheering on the boys in red.

    Destined for greatness…

    The Sidemen members are no stranger to conquering multiple avenues, just look at KSI, who has conquered rap music, boxing and YouTube, among other business ventures.

    But today is all about Tobi Brown from the Sidemen, as he and his brother Manny look to go make an appearance in a professional football match, after they have released music and both smashed it on YouTube.

    The youngest of the three brothers, Jed Brown, is perhaps the most slept-on and talented of the bunch, as he could also feature for the side today from the bench, or maybe even in the starting XI.

    Good evening! Welcome to Crawley vs Accrington Stanley!

    Good afternoon football fans, and welcome to SunSport’s coverage of today’s 3pm kick-off, Crawley vs Accrington Stanley!

    Whilst this is undoubtedly a huge game for both sides, in the FA Cup, there will be lots of additional eyes on the home side, as they could be set to feature a couple of YouTube stars.

    Tobi, Manny and Jed Brown could all feature, after they were 'scouted' by the Crawley Town setup at the Sidemen Charity Match.

    All three of them, including Sidemen star Tobi, could feature today in the FA Cup and achieve what was likely a dream for all of us, to play in a professional football match.

    We are set for a brilliant game, with plenty on the line. We hope you enjoy all the entertainment that is on offer to feast on as we get into another spectacular FA Cup campaign.
