thumbnail Hello,

The Tigers ran out 2-0 winners when these sides met in the Premier League last month but our tipster is expecting both teams to find the net in the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon

After the disappointment of losing out to Manchester City in last weekend's Capital One Cup final, Sunderland can take a huge stride towards a return trip to Wembley when they face Hull City in the last eight of the FA Cup this weekend.

The Black Cats are battling for Premier League survival but put up a brave performance against the Premier League title challengers and Gus Poyet will be hoping for another good showing from his side on Sunday afternoon.

The Tigers have been in good form of late but slipped to a shock 4-1 reverse at the hands of Newcastle United last weekend and Steve Bruce's side will be eager to make amends here.

Hull are chalked up at 23/20 (2.15) with William Hill to book their place in the semi-finals of the competition by claiming victory this weekend while the same firm go 13/5 (3.60) that it is the Black Cats who go through to the last four by winning at KC Stadium. William Hill offer a tempting 11/5 (3.20) quote that Sunday's tie ends in stalemate.

Matty Fryatt was on the scoresheet when Hull City cruised past Southend United at Roots Hall earlier in the competition and the striker is chalked up at 6/1 (7.0) with William Hill to break the deadlock this weekend.

Those keen to side with the Tigers may be tempted by William Hill’s “headline offer” 4/1 (5.0) quote for Fryatt to score at any time in a victory for the home side.

Sunderland, though, got a taste of Cup success last weekend and the Black Cats are sure to be hungry for more when they visit KC Stadium.

Fabio Borini, who opened the scoring at Wembley against Manchester City, are chalked up at a chunky 9/1 (10.0) with William Hill to repeat that trick here while the same firm also offer 9/1 (10.0) for Adam Johnson to net the opener.

The midfielder is Sunderland’s top scorer thus far this term with nine goals in all competitions and, with that in mind, the chunky 8/1 (9.0) “headline offer” quote from William Hill for the 26-year-old to score at any time in a win for the Black Cats is decent value for those who believe Sunderland will progress.

Punters should note that the Tigers have kept just two clean sheets in their last 14 FA Cup ties while Sunderland have scored in 11 of their last 12 matches so goals seem likely here.

Therefore, the 21/20 (2.05) quote from William Hill for both teams to find the net when these sides go head-to-head would appear to represent solid value this weekend.
