Chelsea loanee heads 4 FA Cup hitmen capable of causing upsets

| 22.01.2015

Snowy scenes, muddy pitches, live matches sprinkled across the BBC over the weekend and the smell of upsets in the air; it must be the FA Cup.

It sure is, the fourth round of the famous cup beckons, and the fixture list is littered with potential upsets and this quartet might well be making the headlines:

Manchester City v Middlesbrough – Patrick Bamford to score anytime @ 7/2

On loan from Chelsea, ‘Bam Bam’ as he’s affectionately known up on Teesside awoke from a six-game scoring hibernation to bag his ninth of the campaign for Boro in a 2-1 win over Cardiff last time out.

Bamford should delight in trying his luck against a shaky Citizens defence which haven’t kept a clean sheet in six games, conceding seven times at home in four games to boot.

Blackburn Rovers v Swansea – Jordan Rhodes to score anytime @ 15/8

Continuing the Championship-side-against-the-battered-and-bruised Premier-League-club theme, Swansea look ripe for the picking after being handed their caps by Chelsea last time out.

Given the news that Rhodes is now a main Swans target, what better way to advance his chances of a move than sinking them in this game.

Derby v Chesterfield – Eoin Doyle to score anytime @ 5/2

The Spierites’ Irish striker has proved too-hot-to-handle in League One, continuing the fine start to life at the Proact Stadium which contributed to the League Two crown last season.

Doyle has amassed a fearsome tally of 22 goals from 30 appearances in all competitions and could leave Steve McLaren looking wally-like again.

Bristol City v West Ham – Jay Emmanuel Thomas to score anytime @ 13/5

The former Arsenal trainee has found a home at Ashton Gate. Emmanuel Thomas has scored four times in his last three games and already has a trio of goals in this competition for the Robins, including a brace against Doncaster in round four.
