FREE BETS FOR DARREN BENT TO SCORE AGAINST BRISTOL ROVERS
Neither Aston Villa nor Liverpool have made any comment on rumours of Darren Bent moving up the M6 in January and the England striker will be left to focus on helping Aston Villa to qualify for the fourth round of the FA Cup when they meet Bristol Rovers on Saturday.
Bent missed the Christmas fixtures with a groin injury and returned for the 3-1 win at Chelsea on New Years Eve where he got his name on the scoresheet with his 88th minute strike. Manager Alex McLeish will have hoped that victory would spark a change in Aston Villa’s fortunes this season, but his Villains reverted to type with a third consecutive home defeat against Swansea two days later.
The FA Cup offers some respite for Villa fans whose team is struggling in the bottom half of the Premier League and McLeish will look to his top scorer to ensure this third round tie does not figure among the great giant-killing acts of the competition. Looking at the match odds however, it seems the bookies sense a shock could be on the cards with Aston Villa generally available at 4/7 to win the televised game with Victor Chandler betting 6/1 for Bristol Rovers to win and 16/5 for the draw.
Bristol Rovers have Shaun North taking control for the first time as caretaker coach following Paul Buckle’s dismissal on Tuesday. Rovers have lost their last four games and have dropped perilously close to the League Two relegation zone in 19th place. Bristol Rovers qualified for the FA Cup third round with wins against non-league opposition, beating Corby Town 3-1 at the Memorial Stadium in round one before thrashing AFC Totton 6-1 in the second round. Rovers reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for the third time in their history as recently as 2008. In that memorable cup run, they knocked out Premier League side Fulham in the third round before eventually falling to West Brom in the quarters.
