Rhian Brewster to score anytime @ 11/10 - BET NOW
Brewster’s move to Sheffield United has been a nightmare. He has not scored in 15 appearances and it hasn’t helped that Wilder has not favoured picking the striking since day one. Brewster wasn’t picked for the FA Cup third round but could get his name on the team sheet for Saturday’s match versus Plymouth Argyle. He was on the bench for the third-round game and has appeared in recent league matches for the Blades. Will Wilder pick the ex-Liverpool player to start this time out?

Sheffield United saw over 2.5 goals in their win over Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup third round. They conceded goals to the League One side and should do the same against Plymouth Argyle at home.

Now, they face off with a Premier League squad that are heading back to the Championship. Don’t be shocked if Plymouth Argyle pull off an upset in this fixture.
Confidence is low at Bramall Lane. The team are moving further and further away from Premier League survival. A deep run in the FA Cup could be the best part of a dreadful season.
