Darren Bent To Score For Fulham
Premier League legend Matt Le Tissier tips Darren Bent to get among the goals when Fulham entertain Norwich in the FA Cup 3rd Round replay at Craven Cottage.
Norwich looked the brighter side at Carrow Road but were forced into a replay at Craven Cottage where their record has been abysmal in recent years. The Canaries have lost all three games here since returning to the top flight, conceding 13 goals and scoring once.
Fulham have been poor this season but beat Norwich in the league at Carrow Road on Boxing Day and seem to have the measure of tonight’s opponents.
Matt Le Tissier tips: “With Sheffield United waiting for the winners in the fourth round, it’s a chance for the club’s to give their suffering fans something to cheer about.
Fulham will likely start with Darren Bent and he could prove to be the match winner tonight. The 9/5 odds at Betway for Bent to score at anytime look the best value.”
Darren Bent doesn’t appear to fit in Rene Meulensteen’s plans, favouring deep lying forwards ahead of the former England striker’s poaching style. Bent started in the first tie and scored his first goal since October when putting Fulham ahead on 40 minutes.
He’s the type of player that will never lose his goal scoring instinct and the FA Cup could bring out the best in his game.
