Blackburn vs Wrexham FA Cup predictions: Tips, odds and team news
Blackburn Rovers and Wrexham go head-to-head in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Monday at 7:30pm (UK time).
Blackburn vs Wrexham odds
Blackburn’s 5-2 victory over Cambridge in round three was a welcome distraction from their poor league form that has seen them pick up two points from their last seven matches and record just one win from their last 10 in the Championship (W1 D2 L7). A first senior hat-trick from Championship top goalscorer Sammie Szmodics and further strikes from Arnór Sigurdsson and Harry Leonard saw Rovers progress to the next round in style, despite a spirited start from Cambridge, who twice took the lead in the opening 26 minutes.
Wrexham, meanwhile, booked their place in round four with a 1-0 away win against rivals Shrewsbury thanks to a 72nd-minute goal from defender Thomas O’Connor. After a 3-1 defeat to Premier League side Sheffield United in a fourth-round replay last season, after drawing the first match 3-3, Phil Parkinson’s side will be hoping to book a place in round five of the competition for the first time since 1997 when they reached the quarter-finals.
