English FA Cup

Sunday, 4th January, 13:00 UK Time

Those of us with romance in our hearts look to the third round of the F.A. Cup for tales of giant-killing that will go on to claim a place in football folklore. Stories about the day a part-time shopkeeper scored past England’s goalkeeper, perhaps, or of how a team that cost less than Jose Mourinho’s third-best suit progressed into fourth round glory to meet up with Manchester United.

Sadly, I can’t see too many shocks this year, and that includes Sheffield United’s trip to the bright lights of West London. The Yorkshire side are always useful against a Premier League struggler, but as soon as the luck of the draw gave QPR home advantage the odds swung away from the Blades. They will undoubtedly give Harry Redknapp’s side a run for their money, but in the end all I can see it a win for the Londoners.

QPR haven’t had too many feel-good stories so far this season, but in the rags to riches tale of striker Charlie Austin there is a definite sense of wonder. The former non-leaguer is now scoring for fun in the Premier League, and he will fancy his chances of adding to his tally in this match. If he plays, and there’s no guarantee of that, he may well find the net.

Queens Park Rangers to win at home to Sheffield United. Grab them at 1.72.
