Birmingham v West Brom
Last five Games in all competitions:
Birmingham - LWWWD
West Brom - LDWWD

It's been a while since these local rivals locked horns and with the home side a division below the visitors, it could pay to side with West Brom here.

The Blues made heavy weather of their away trip to non-league Blyth Spartans in the previous round and had to dig deep to come back from two down to win 2-3. Albion on the other hand took their time to get into gear against Gateshead, but once they had broken the deadlock, the floodgates opened and an easy 7-0 win followed.

West Brom are unbeaten in their last three meetings with Birmingham and with no side yet to score past the Baggies with Tony Pulis in the dugout, that trend looks set to continue.

Prediction - 0-2

Chelsea v Bradford
Last five Games in all competitions:
Chelsea - LWWWD
Bradford - WDLWL

A trip to Stamford Bridge beckons for League 1 promotion hopefuls Bradford in what looks like a classsic FA Cup mis-match.

The Blues are unbeaten at home this season and having made light work of beating Watford in the previous round, will look at this as another gimme. The Bantams forced a replay with Millwall after a 3-3 draw at the Den and ran out comfortable 4-0 winners, but will not find it so easy to score away to Chelsea who have conceded just once in their last four outings.

Upsets are not uncommon in the FA Cup, but this doesn't look like being a match to remember for the underdogs and a repeat of the scoreline from their last visit to the Bridge could be on the cards.

Prediction - 3-0

Derby v Chesterfield
Last five Games in all competitions:
Derby - WWWWL
Chesterfield - WDWWL

With Derby focusing all of their efforts on a promotion charge in the Championship, this clash with League 1 play-off challangers Chesterfield could be quite a close contest.

The Rams were on a charge until coming up against their old rivals Notts Forest last time out while the Spireites also had an unbeaten run ended away to table-toppers Swindon. Derby could only manage a 1-0 win over conference side Southport in the previous round, while Chesterfield scrapped for a replay with a 2-2 draw away to Scunthorpe and won it 2-0 at Proact Stadium to set up this tie.

Prediction - 2-1

Man City v Middlesbrough
Last five Games in all competitions:
Man City - DWWDL
Middlesbrough - DWDWW

Premier League champions Manchester City entertain Championship promotion challengers Middlesbrough at the Etihad Stadium.

On paper this should really be a walk in the park for City, but they've struggled to assert their authority in the FA Cup since losing the 2012-13 final to Wigan. Having been knocked out by the Latics last season, City had to come from behind to beat Sheff Wed 2-1 in the previous round and were not at the races against Arsenal last time out.

The Boro are in decent form and gave a good account of themselves when they last faced City in the FA Cup, only losing 0-1 at the Riverside and lost by the same scoreline on their last visit to the City of Manchester Stadium. This could be another tense FA Cup game for City.

Prediction - 1-0

Southampton v Crystal Palace
Last five Games in all competitions:
Southampton - WDWWW
Crystal Palace - DDWWW

Two in-form Premier League sides go head to head at St Marys, with Southampton winning 1-3 at Selhurst Park when the sides met earlier this season.

Saints needed a replay to overcome Championship side Ipswich in the previous round, while Palace had a somewhat easier task in beating non-league Dover. Ronald Koeman may continuie to prioritise Southampton's challenge for European football, while Alan Pardew is enjoying his honeymoon period with the Eagles having lifted them clear of danger in the league and will be looking to keep the ball rolling here.

A closer game is anticipated then when the sides last faced eachother, but Southampton have won their previous five matches against Crystal Palace and should be able to edge them once more.

Prediction - 2-1

Tottenham v Leicester
Last five Games in all competitions:
Tottenham - DLWWW
Leicester - WDWWL

Europa League challangers Tottenham Hotspur play host to Premier League basement boys Leicester City at Whitehart Lane and it could be that the away side may be more concerened with their battle against relegation than going on a cup run.

Spurs added another fixture to their already congested schedule when needing a replay to overcome Burnley in the previous round, while Leicester edged past managerless Newcastle. With the away leg of the League Cup semi-final following this game, it's unlikely that Mauricio Pochettino will run the risk of this going to a replay, while his opposite number Nigel Pearson may see Premier League survival as being the pressing issue.

Leicester won the last time these sides met in the FA Cup, but have not had the best of luck in recent visits to Whitehart Lane, while clean sheets have been thin on the ground between these sides since the turn of the millennium.

Prediction - 2-1

Now all that's left for you to do is predict which minute the first goal of any of the Super 6 matches will be scored. Good Luck!
