Portsmouth vs QPR

Portsmouth remains at Fratton Park for their next fixture where QPR will join them in a battle to secure a spot in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup. Kenny Jacket will be thrilled with his sides progress in League One so far, as their efforts have earned them a spot at the top of the table and they head into this fixture following a 1-0 win over Peterborough in the Checkatrade Trophy. QPR had been enjoying a strong run of form in the Championship which has seen them go six games without a loss, but their form has dipped and they have now lost their last two fixtures. Their latest defeat came against Preston North End who eased to a 4-1 win. Bet365 are offering odds of 11/8 for Portsmouth to win and 9/5 for QPR.

Brighton vs West Brom

The Baggies travel down to the South Coast to the AMEX Stadium where they will go head-to-head with Brighton in the FA Cup. Brighton arrives off the back off consecutive losses in the league, but they looked strong in their previous FA Cup fixture against Bournemouth when they cruised to a 3-1 win. The hosts have odds of 1/1 with SkyBet to take the ‘W’ in this cup clash. West Brom are having a strong season and currently sit up in third place just four points adrift from the league leaders. The Baggies took on Bolton in their previous game and eased to a 2-0 victory. The travelling side arrives as underdogs with a price of 14/5 with Bet365.

Middlesbrough vs Newport County

Riverside Stadium will be home to Middlesbrough’s FA Cup fixture this weekend where they will welcome their League Two opposition, Newport County. If Boro performs as they have been throughout the season then this should be a simple enough win for the hosts and can start preparing for the Fifth Round. The hosts were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Millwall in their previous fixture. Newport will need another healthy dose of FA Cup magic this weekend to get the better of Middlesbrough, but they do at least arrive off the back of a 1-0 win over Exeter City. Boro have the small price of 1/3 with Bet365 to secure the win and Bet365 have priced Newport to win at 8/1.

Manchester City vs Burnley

Sean Dyche takes his men up to the Etihad Stadium this weekend where they will go up against the goal-happy Manchester City. Guardiola will be expecting nothing less than a win from this clash and City look in good shape to comfortably see off their opponents, with them winning their last six matches on the bounce. Over the last five games, City have racked up 24 goals and conceded just one. The Clarets have found some well-needed form in recent games which have seen them go five games without a loss picking up four wins along the way. As expected, City are clear favourites and have a price of 1/10 with SkyBet, while Burnley sit at 22/1 with Betway.

Shrewsbury Town vs Wolves

The Shrews return to their New Meadow Stadium this weekend looking to cause an upset in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup when they take on Wolves.

The Shrews head into this fixture off the back of a 0-0 draw against Blackpool. Wolves have been a surprise package in the Premier League this season and their efforts have earned them a spot in eighth. Their previous fixture saw them snatch three points from Leicester City with a 4-3 win. The hosts are priced at 6/1 with Bet365 to win, while their opponents sit at 8/15 with SkyBet.

Newcastle United vs Watford

One game that should provide a thrilling 90 minutes of football takes place at St James’ Park as Newcastle United and Watford go head-to-head. The Toon find themselves ten places behind their opponents in the league after a tough first half of the season, but they arrive in good form with them winning their last two games, following their 3-0 victory over Cardiff City. The Hornets will be no easy opponents as they currently sit in seventh place and are unbeaten in their last five games. If you fancy the host’s chances then Bet365 are offering odds of 2/1 and Watford sit at 7/5 with SkyBet.
