Sunday FA Cup Game Preview – Wolverhampton Wanderers Dark Horse to Lift Trophy

By Marc Gingell

Ashton Gate 13:00 Bristol City v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Keepmoat Stadium 16:00 Doncaster Rovers v Crystal Palace
Liberty Stadium 16:00 Swansea v Brentford

 

Bristol City v Wolverhampton Wanderers

Bristol City are 5th in the Championship and current form, over the last five games, puts them top. Between the October 27 and November 24 they lost four games straight. Since then they’ve gone 16 games unbeaten in all competitions winning eleven. They’ve won their last nine games. Andreas Weimann misses out with a back injury.

The last time Wolves visited Ashton Gate boss Nuno Espirito Santo received a red card for impeding on City’s technical area. That day Wolves won 2-1, thanks to a 90+ 3rd minute gola from Ryan Bennett, and went ten points clear at the top of the table.

Prediction

Wolves are my dark horse to win the FA Cup but this will be a tough tie that could well go to extra time.

Bristol City 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 2

Doncaster Rovers v Crystal Palace

Doncaster are 6th in Sky Bet League One and looking good for a play-off place. Manager Grant McCann, who spent most of his career in lower levels of English football and played 39 times for Northern Ireland scoring four goals, will be hoping that striker John Marquis can add to his three FA Cup goals this season.

Prediction

Doncaster are in good from but Palace should have enough quality.

Doncaster Rovers 0 Crystal Palace 2

Swansea v Brentford

Prediction

Home advantage should be enough for Swansea

Swansea 2 Brentford 1
