SUFC Baxter to help blades beat Villa?

SUFC Baxter to help blades beat Villa?

Sheffield United will be hoping to put more pressure on Paul Lambert and Aston Villa when they travel to Villa Park for their FA Cup Third Round tie this afternoon.

Lambert has been a target of the boo-boys at Villa Park in recent weeks, something that was eased slightly with a win at Sunderland on New Year`s Day.

United have been struggling in League One this season but they will arrive at Villa Park with nothing to lose and they will be cheered on by over 5,500 travelling blades fans.

SkyBet make Villa 4/9 favourites to book their place in round four, United are a tasty 11/2 and it is 7/2 on going to a replay.

Striker Christian Benteke returned to the Villa side after injury in the win at Sunderland and he will be hoping to break his goal drought against United.

The Belgian international striker started the season in fine form, scoring five goals in the opening six games of the season but he has now gone eleven games since he last found the net in the win at Newcastle United in September.

Benteke is 5/2 to end his drought and score the opening goal of the game.

Jose Baxter is a slight injury concern for United. Baxter limped off in the defeat at Walsall on Wednesday and boss Nigel Clough will be hoping the striker will be fit to start against Villa.

Baxter, who has scored four goals in his last six games for United, enjoyed the FA Cup limelight last season when he helped former club Oldham Athletic knock out Liverpool at this stage of the competition.

Baxter is 8/1 to score the first goal of the game.
