Wagner Gets The Blues
David Wagner is saying the right things about wanting to play United again but in his heart of hearts he knows a continued FA Cup run is only likely to hurt his struggling side.
We made the case for Birmingham City when these sides met 10 days ago and it ended 1-1, but they can finish the job on their own patch at best odds of 9/5 with Bet365.
The carrot for these two sides is a potential 5th round clash at home to Man Utd but you just wonder how much Huddersfield really want that having just lost at Old Trafford comfortably on Saturday.
The Terriers are in free fall down the Premier League table and the FA Cup is very much an unwanted distraction at this point. David Wagner doesn’t possess a squad full of great depth and must be tempted to play the reserves tonight and just see what happens.
It’s a different story for Birmingham who are storming up the Championship table, now four points and three places above the drop zone after back-to-back 3-1 victories and one defeat in eight in all competitions.
The Blues can afford to dream of a great day out against Man Utd.
