FEB 8: BORO v SUNDERLAND TIPS

Wednesday, the Riverside, 7.45pm, live on ITV

HANDS up if Sunderland cost you a few quid when they failed to beat Middlesbrough in their FA Cup home meeting.

And hands up if you’re still going to back them in the replay at the Riverside tonght. Yes, me too.

Sunderland are 11-10 almost across the board and I’m sure they’ll win if they want it.

Since the first meeting Sunderland have gone from strength to strength, winning two league games to nil to climb to eighth in the table.

Middlesbrough continue to stutter and haven’t won in five. Maybe the tie at the Stadium of Light provided their best chance to progress as they’ve picked up more points on the road this season and often freeze in front of a demanding home support.

The Championship promotion hopefuls have managed only one win this year and that came against League Two opposition so they aren’t exactly flying.

If anyone fancies Boro to pull off a shock they are 14-5 with BetVictor.

Comeback striker Fraizer Campbell, who bagged his side’s equaliser in the first game, is 15-2 at BetVictor to open the scoring and 2-1 to score at any time.

Campbell’s worth a glance but the man who could beat him to the punch is on-fire Irish star James McClean who netted the only goal at Stoke at the weekend.

McClean has been superb since the arrival of Martin O’Neill and looks big at 14-1 with bet365 and BetVictor to score first. He is 5-1 at bet365 to net at any time.

    Hi Paul time to try again tonight… I have on a 5 fold with sunderland, barcelona, ivory coast, az alkmaar and sporting lisbon… £238.15 back for my £20 so fingers crossed.

      Adrian, looks a solid enough line so good luck with it. I’m not so keen on cup-ties because on top of form and stats you have to always consider the strength of line-up and willingness to win.

    Hopefully it can do it as was really unlucky last night. Had birmingham, bournemouth, swindon, athletico bilbao and cheltenham on a 5 fold. Put £30 on it and would have got £739.82 and really thought cheltenham were going to do it when they went 1-0 up.
