SUNDERLAND, WHO continued their domination of the First Division with a 4-0 defeat of Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday, should make short work of Second Division Luton in their Worthington Cup quarter- final at the Stadium of Light tomorrow.

Luton, held 1-1 by Manchester City at home on Saturday, have done well to get this far, but look out of their depth against Peter Reid's men, who seem bound for the Premiership.

Wimbledon, although sent packing 3-1 by Newcastle on Saturday, could hold Chelsea to a draw in 90 minutes at Selhurst Park. The Dons always put up a fight and need the Uefa Cup place this tournament offers much more than Gianluca Vialli's men, who are flying high in the League despite being held 1-1 by Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Leicester, tipped here to win the tournament at 14-1 and not disgraced in gaining a point against Coventry on Saturday, ought to overwhelm Blackburn at home on Wednesday.

Tottenham can hold Manchester United to a draw in 90 minutes at White Hart Lane. George Graham's men, with no European Cup to distract them, are likely to hold the edge in the up-for-it department.
