First Division Reading, who registered a 2-0 victory over Birmingham at home on Saturday, look bankers at 4-9 with the Tote to make short work of Third Division Cardiff City in their FA Cup fourth-round replay tomorrow night.

Sheffield United have a 71 per cent strike rate at home in the First Division this season. They look a solid wager at 10-11 with Ladbrokes to beat Ipswich in their FA Cup fourth-round replay at Bramall Lane. Ipswich's away strike rate in the First Division is only 27 per cent this term.

Wolves have a 64 per cent strike rate in the First Division at home this term and, at 6-5 with Ladbrokes, are fairly priced to dispatch Charlton in their FA Cup fourth-round replay at Molineux. Charlton's away strike rate is in the First Division is only 33 percent this term.

On Wednesday, Barnsley (6-4 with William Hill, Ladbrokes and the Tote) will - despite only a 36 per cent strike rate at home in the Premiership this season - fancy their chances of knocking out Tottenham, who have a dreadful eight per cent strike rate away in the Premiership this term, in their FA Cup fourth-round replay at Oakwell.

Newcastle United (1-6 with Coral, Ladbrokes and the Tote) should finally make class count over Stevenage in their FA Cup fourth-round replay at St James' Park.
