Having experienced Wycombe's tactics a couple of weeks ago, they will certainly make it horrible for Villa and if the visitors go in with a youthful side they will get bulled especially on set pieces and in possession.  Much will depend on the referee. A strong referee would negate Wycombe's systematic fouling and aggressive pressing.  We have Michael Oliver, a premier league referee who isn't afraid to make big decisions. This comes at Villa's advantage. Now waiting for team news.  A strong Villa team = Villa win at anything over 5/4. Young Villa side = HW or draw at at 2.5/1 or bigger.

Would have certainly backed Eastleigh at the price they opened up (11/2) when the draw was made, but at the current price they seem on the short side to me. Not saying they won't still cause an upset as I think they have a fair chance of doing so, but the price has long gone for me and Eastleigh have been bigger prices to win league matches this season.

Yeah, I'm with you, addpea. Roughly 3/1 is too short for a non-league side to beat a Championship side. They might be struggling in the league but Lennon has still made them competitive in most games so I think Bolton will do the business and get at least a draw but most probably a win.

I think every game that involves a Championship team or a premier league team needs to be reconsidered.

All these teams are in league action on Tuesday and Weds .

 

Villa will field a weak team, they want to beat Crystal Palace on Wed

Tottenham play Leicester on Sunday in FA cup and then play them on Weds in the League.

 

Any team that is struggling in the EPL, or has promotion ambitions in the Championship, will field a weak FA cup lineup.

Manchester U - Sheffield U: Due to bad performances from home team, I believe Sheffield may steal a win here. And is not uncommon for "top" premier league teams to slip on cup, adding to that their bad performances. Worth a bet on Sheffield due to high odds.

  • Sheffield to win > 9
