Expect action at Ashton Gate


Sunday provides three more FA Cup fifth-round ties, kicking off at 1:30 when in-form Bristol City take on Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Score draw @ 7/2

The Robins are flying, winning their last nine games in all competitions as part of an unbeaten run which stretches back to November 24 and having leapt into the Championship play-off places, Lee Johnson will be keen to see them maintain their momentum.

Wolves themselves have not lost in their last six and with a genuine shot at a European place, Nuno Espirito Santo is likely to shuffle his pack, with John Ruddy, Ruben Vinagre and Romain Saiss amongst those who could come in.

They will still take a competitive side and this could well be the tie of the round with goals seemingly a given.

There is little to choose between these two, so the draw in 90 minutes seems sensible at 12/5 but more ambitious punters may back that up with goals on either side, while 2-2 is 11/1.

Palace to win to zero @ 17/10

There are two games at four o’clock and 2016 finalists Crystal Palace will expect to book their quarter-final spot with a win at League One Doncaster.

Rovers have been going well, unbeaten in five coming into this one and have a given themselves a realistic chance of promotion under Grant McCann.

Visitors Palace will be without star man Wilfried Zaha through suspension but should still have too much at the Keepmoat.

Swansea to win @ 8/5

The final game is an all-Championship affair as Swansea host Brentford at the Liberty Stadium.

A 2-1 defeat on Wednesday at Leeds made it two straight defeats on the road but the Swans have a good record at home, not beaten since September and overcame Millwall 1-0 last Saturday.

Brentford were too good for Aston Villa in midweek and seem to be coming good under Thomas Frank. However, they have a shocking record on the road.

One away win is all they have managed this season and with Frank tipped to select a weakened side, the Welsh club can progress.
