FA Cup Fourth Round Saturday Preview - The Gambling Times

FA Cup Fourth Round Saturday Preview

Saturday sees the majority of the FA Cup fourth ties, with some of the favourites looking to book their place in the last 16.

Liverpool face an all Premier League clash against West Brom at Anfield – in what will be the final game with an evening kick-off on Merseyside.

Another of the featured games is a mouthwatering looking clash with League Two Newport County hosting Tottenham – with Spurs desperate to avoid what would be one of the biggest upsets in FA Cup history.

There are a number of games that see Premier League clubs looking to avoid potential banana skins – including West Ham’s trip to Wigan, Swansea’s clash at Notts County and Leicester at Peterborough.

Another all Premier League contest can be found at St Mary’s with Southampton hosting Watford.

Brighton face a tough looking clash at Tony Pulis’s Middlesbrough, whilst Huddersfield will be hopeful of having too much for Birmingham at the John Smith’s Stadium.

There are two all Championship games with Nottingham Forest travelling to Hull City and Sheffield United playing host to Preston.

One of the biggest shocks in the third round was Coventry’s win at Stoke, and they will have to cause another upset if they want to progress as they travel to Milton Keynes Dons.

Finally, League One Rochdale will be looking for an upset at The New Den against Championship Milllwall.

See below for a preview on each game, including predictions from our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and bet365’s Steve Freeth.
