Goals at both ends likely in Sheffield
Sheffield United welcome in-form League One outfit Plymouth Argyle to Bramall Lane on Saturday for an FA Cup Fourth Round tussle that promises to produce goals at both ends.
The Blades’ 3-2 Third Round victory at third tier side Bristol Rovers was a departure from what have been countless low-scoring Premier League performances this season, and Chris Wilders’ men found more joy at the top end of the pitch than usual against their lower league opponents.
The Pirates plundered two goals against their Premier League antagonists however, which is probably unsurprising given the Blades’ defensive record this term, and having collected just a single clean sheet in 21 competitive assignments this season, United could concede again on Saturday.
Plymouth notched three times in the previous round at Huddersfield, in fact, they have failed to register just once in their last 10 fixtures overall since early December, and Argyle could leave Bramall Lane with a consolation this weekend.
