Andrew Hughes thinks Bristol City can overcome Premier League opponents in the FA Cup on Sunday and help to land another weekend multiple in the process
“Lee Johnson’s men have won nine in a row in all competitions, and last season beat four Premier League sides on their way to an FA Cup semi-final.”
Given that Wolves have made such an impressive return to the Premier League, and appear to be in no danger of relegation, the FA Cup should represent an opportunity to push for silverware, but manager Nuno Espirito Santo may not see it like that.
A seventh-place finish in the Premier League and the outside possibility of catching Arsenal and Chelsea if they continue to struggle, may be regarded as a bigger prize by the club hierarchy. So there is no guarantee that Wolves will put out a full-strength team for their Fifth Round tie at Ashton Gate this weekend.
But even a first-choice Wolves team might struggle against the Robins in their current mood. Lee Johnson's men have won nine in a row in all competitions, and last season beat four Premier League sides on their way to an FA Cup semi-final. Back them to add another to their collection this weekend.
Melbourne Stars have made a habit of falling at the semi-final stage of the Big Bash League, but this could finally be the year when they claim the title.
After a slow start to the competition, they have hit form at exactly the right time, winning five of their last seven and producing their best performance of the competition against Hobart in Thursday's semi-final.
The Renegades, appearing in their first final, will be tough opponents and boast a miserly bowling unit, but they will miss Mohammad Nabi with both bat and ball. They are also heavily dependent on Aaron Finch, whereas the Stars have a trio of potential match winners in Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis and Sandeep Lamichhane. Back the men in green to edge out their city rivals on Sunday.
Salford Red Devils have made an excellent start to their Super League campaign, and look a good bet to beat a struggling Leeds team on Sunday.
The Rhinos have lost both of their opening games in the competition, by an average of 19 points, and while those were tough fixtures against the reigning champions Wigan and Warrington, they were well beaten in both.
Leeds are badly missing the experience of veteran forward Jamie Jones-Buchanan, but he won't be available here either, and that will make it harder for the Rhinos to match a Salford side that is setting the early pace in the competition. Back the Red Devils to extend their perfect start to the season with a third win.
