Game Preview


Sheffield United and Blackburn Rovers will face off for a place in the FA Cup semi-finals on Sunday, when the two Championship clubs meet at Bramall Lane. The teams met in the league just over two weeks ago, with the visitors defeating the second-placed Blades at home, while both defeated Premier League opposition in the previous round to reach the final eight.


Sheffield United started their FA Cup run in the third round with a trip to Millwall, where they won 2-0 to advance. Next, they traveled to fifth-tier Wrexham, where they forced a replay with a dramatic 3-3 draw thanks to an injury-time equalizer.


Paul Heckingbottom’s side eventually got past the Welsh outfit on their return to Bramall Lane, thanks to late goals from Billy Sharp and Sander Berge, who scored deep into injury time to seal a 3-1 victory. This earned them a round-of-16 tie against Tottenham Hotspur at home, and after the game remained goalless for 79 minutes, Iliman Ndiaye scored the only goal off the bench.


Their opponents, who are also actively competing for promotion to the Premier League this season, started their own FA Cup run with a trip to Norwich City and advanced with a 1-0 victory thanks to Jack Vale’s goal. They then faced Championship opposition again when Birmingham City was drawn to face them in the fourth round.


Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side would only manage a 2-2 draw in that match, as they were pegged back by a Jordan James equalizer in injury time, but they would prevail away from home in the replay, as an Auston Trusty own goal in extra time proved to be the only difference between the teams.


Rovers took a 2-0 lead at the King Power Stadium thanks to goals from Tyrhys Dolan and Sammie Szmodics, and after Kelechi Iheanacho equalized for their top-flight hosts 23 minutes from time, Tomasson’s men held on to win and advance to Sunday’s quarter-final.


They followed that up with a 1-0 win over the Blades, and after a defeat away at Stoke City, they now head into the cup tie on the back of an important 2-1 victory at home to Reading on Wednesday, thanks to Ryan Hedges’s decisive 82nd-minute goal after Ben Brereton Diaz had opened the scoring in the second minute.
