IN a way tonight's FA Cup replay is a tie neither side needs as league points are the priority.
But it might be the only game they can triumph in – with neither experiencing a league victory since New Year's Day.
After slumping to the foot of the Premier League Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen says “defeat is not an option” and that he'll field “a strong team”.
His side were awful as they crashed 3-0 at home to Southampton on Saturday but meet a Blades side who were as bad in losing 3-0 to relegation rivals Crewe.
Star signing Kostas Mitroglou and others who arrived on deadline day are ineligible so I'm looking at Darren Bent at 9-2 with bet365 to score first while Steve Sidwell is an anytime scorer option at 4-1 with 888sport.
Blades won at Aston Villa in the previous round but that was partly down to Paul Lambert's indifference to the tournament.
(7-10, William Hill)
