Game Preview

Wrexham’s story is one that has already reached all four corners of the globe, given the popularity of the club’s owners. However, the FA Cup has been an excellent opportunity this season to show exactly why they are flying high in the National League.

An away trip against Championship opposition isn’t likely to be a daunting prospect for the Welsh club, as they have already knocked out Coventry away from home in the competition this season. However, there is already a sense that their best opportunity to eliminate the Blades may have passed them by, as the Championship side netted a 95th-minute equalizer at the Racecourse Ground a few weeks ago.

Sheffield United’s main aim this term will center around a return to the Premier League, and they already look good value to achieve that. At present, they sit ten points clear of third in England’s second-tier, and they have avoided defeat in their previous nine domestic fixtures.

The Blades were made to sweat for a replay, as John Egan scored a dramatic late equalizer to force the replay. But, their chances of progression are certainly aided by the fact that they have progressed from seven of eight previous meetings against non-league opposition.


Wrexham certainly looks good value to earn promotion to the Football League this term. However, we expect their Hollywood story in the FA Cup to come to an end on Tuesday. We expect both teams to score, but the Blades have more than enough quality in the final third to secure their spot in the next round, setting up a tie against Tottenham Hotspur.
