Sheffield United v Fulham Preview, FA Cup, Sunday 26th January 2014

Sheffield United are in desperate trouble towards the bottom of the League One table on the domestic front, but managed to pull off a huge shock victory over Premiership outfit Aston Villa in the previous round at Villa Park Stadium and will obviously fancy their chances even more in this game on sunday afternoon when playing host against struggling Fulham.

Fulham were comfortable 3-0 winners at Craven Cottage against Norwich City in their previous round match, but having already lost a manager this season with Martin Jol’s departure back at the beginning of December last year and currently just one point above the dreaded relegation zone in the Premiership league table, they would probably benefit from being eliminated from this competition as they could then concentrate on ensuring the club is playing Premiership football again next season.

Sheffield United Team News:

Sheffield United have Billy Paynter, Elliott Whitehouse and Callum McFadzean all unavailable for this game due to each player having already participated in this competition with other clubs.

Fulham Team News:

Matthew Briggs is the only player unavailable for this game as he continues to recover from a hernia operation and fellow defender Fernando Amorebieta will under take a late fitness test to see if he can be involved as he struggles to shake off a recent knock.

Sheffield United v Fulham Head to Head Statistics:

Sunday lunch time’s game from Bramall Lane Stadium will become the 21st match between these two clubs over the years which has seen Sheffield United win 9 times (6 at Bramall Lane Stadium), Fulham win 5 times (1 at Bramall Lane Stadium) and the remaining 6 matches (3 at Bramall Lane Stadium) having finished all level.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

53 Goals have been scored in the previous 20 previous matches played between these two clubs over the years which provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.65 and with 26 goals having been scored in the 10 matches played at Bramall Lane Stadium we are provided with an average goals per game statistic of 2.60.

Both average goal per game statistics suggest that this game on sunday lunch time should see at least 2 or 3 goals scored.

Sheffield United v Fulham Match Betting Odds Market

Sheffield United are two divisions below their oponnents, but the online bookmakers can’t seem to seperate them and currently have the hosts priced up as joint favourites to win the game at a best price of 7/4 with Ladbrokes (£50 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw is an obvious outcome here, especially with the online bookmakers having trouble deciding a clear favourite to win this game and at a current best price of 5/2 with Betfred (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) I can see plenty of punters getting their cash on this come sunday lunch time.

Fulham have had a season to forget at the moment and need to concentrate their efforts on ensuring survival in the Premiership rather than endure a lengthy cup run, so it does not surprise me to see the online bookmakers having the visitors as the joint favourites to win this game on sunday lunch time at a best price of 7/4 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers).

Sheffield United v Fulham Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

It was quite interesting to see the online bookmakers having both of these clubs priced up as the joint favourites to win this game on sunday afternoon as Fulham are a whole two divisions higher than their hosts, although with Sheffield United having a decent record in this competition over the years and having eliminated Aston Villa in the previous round I can see why the bookies fancy the hosts to do well in this game.

Neither side has any real hope of winning this competition if I am to be completley honest and with the situation that both clubs find themselves in with just a few months of the season left to play, neither really need this competition as a distraction to what at the moment could mean the difference of being relegated or not come the end of May.

The average goals per game statistics are suggesting this game to see at least 2 or 3 goals scored and for me this looks the way to go when thinking about a wager on this game. As the online bookmakers odds clearly indicate that this is a game that can go either way on sunday afternoon and about the only thing that does look likely is a couple of goals being scored.
