Saturday FA Cup Tips: Back another narrow win for West Ham

Dan Fitch previews the Saturday 3pm kick offs in the FA Cup fourth round and fancies West Ham to come through a competitive match with Doncaster.

Championship leaders will win

Norwich beat Coventry in third round and now face another fellow Championship side when they travel to Barnsley. The Canaries beat Bristol City 2-0 in midweek to move seven points clear at the top of the Championship table.

Barnsley lost 1-0 at Carrow Road back at the start of January and have since been defeated in their subsequent two Championship games without scoring. Another Norwich win looks good value at 2.5.

Brighton will rock Blackpool

Blackpool pulled off a shock when they beat West Brom on penalties in the last round. Brighton needed penalties themselves to beat Newport, but with home advantage there's every reason to think that the Seagulls will beat a team that are 16th in League One.

The hosts Brighton beat Leeds in their last outing and fielded a relatively strong team in the third round. Back Brighton keep a second successive clean sheet and win to nil at 2.62.

Millwall are home draw specialists

Millwall 2.14 v Bristol City 4.0; The Draw 3.3

Millwall have only won two of their last 16 games in the Championship (D8 L6), but those victories came away at Bristol City in December and then away at Huddersfield in their most recent outing on Wednesday night.

Bristol City have lost each of their last four away games. With Millwall having drawn seven of their eleven home league games this season, a stalemate seems likelier than a home victory, so back another draw at 3.3.

Another cup win for Blades

Sheffield United 1.44 v Plymouth 7.6; The Draw 4.8

Sheffield United's first victory of the season came in the third round when they won 3-2 at Bristol Rovers, which was quickly followed by their first Premier League win, beating Newcastle in their next game.

Having been brought back down to earth in a 3-1 defeat to Spurs at the weekend, the Blades will be looking to get back to winning ways. With League One's Plymouth having scored in each of their last eight games, take a chance on a home win and both teams to score at 3.1.

Swansea big price against distracted Forest

Swansea 2.16 v Nottingham Forest 3.6; The Draw 3.4

Swansea should be confident in this all-Championship clash. Second in the table, they are unbeaten in their last six (W5 D1) and they took all three points when visiting the City Ground earlier in the season.

Forest have been improving under Chris Hughton and were unbeaten in seven (W4 D3) before their loss to Middlesbrough on Wednesday. This could be another tough game for the 20th placed side, at a time when they don't really need a distraction, so back the hosts at 2.16.

Hammers revival under Moyes will continue

West Ham 1.33 v Doncaster 11.5; The Draw 5.6
Saturday 23 January, 15:00
Live on BBCi

David Moyes has done a brilliant job at West Ham, taking them from a relegation fight to a current position of seventh, while making a profit in the transfer market.

Now unbeaten in six (W4 D2), West Ham should have too much for Doncaster, but it could be tight. The Hammers only beat Stockport 1-0 in the last round and Doncaster are challenging for promotion in League One. Back a West Ham win and under 2.5 goals at 3.2.
