FA Cup Anytime Scorer Tips
To find value for money, I have dived into the markets and handpicked four potential anytime scorers, and this tantalising four-fold is paying out at 26/1 with bet365.
- Patrick Bamford – Accrington Stanley vs LEEDS
- Josh Windass – SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY vs Fleetwood Town
- Richarlison – Preston vs TOTTENHAM
- Marcus Rashford – MANCHESTER UNITED vs Reading
Patrick Bamford – Accrington Stanley vs LEEDS
After scraping past Borehamwood in their FA Cup third round replay earlier this week, Accrington Stanley will face a step up in quality when they host Leeds.
Of course, Leeds won’t take this one lightly. Before they dismantled Cardiff 5-2 in the previous round, they had lost their past three ties against lower-division teams.
Despite being largely reduced to cameo roles this season for Leeds, Patrick Bamford has made an impact when he has come off the bench.
Bamford has netted three times in his last three appearances in all competitions, and he struck twice against Cardiff.
Leeds aren’t short on firepower, and Bamford isn’t shy when given half a chance. He could well be among the goals in the lunchtime kick-off.
Josh Windass – Sheffield Wednesday v Fleetwood Town
Sheffield Wednesday produced one of the stories of the FA Cup to date by knocking out high-flying Newcastle in the third round.
Josh Windass had a field day, grabbing both goals, and it was an accomplished display from the League One outfit.
The Owls will expect to make progress to the fifth round against a team that they have beaten in all four of their meetings — they will be aiming to emulate their record against Stockport County whom they won their first five cup clashes against between 1921 and 1924.
Wednesday have rattled home 11 goals in their past five matches in all competitions, and Windass could experience more joy in the FA Cup.
Richarlison – Preston vs Tottenham
Although Harry Kane netted in a vital 1-0 win for Tottenham against Fulham earlier this week, he did supposedly play with a fever and our team observed he sounded a bit croaky in his post-match interview.
Richarlison could well spearhead the attack for Tottenham, who will be hoping their turbulent period where they succumbed to back-to-back defeats against Arsenal and Manchester City in the Premier League is behind them.

The Brazilian, meanwhile, is looking for his first goals since the World Cup, however, he has a decent record in the FA Cup — he scored five times in seven outings during his time at Everton.
Richarlison will hope to get plenty of service. He could well tuck the ball into the net, and he’s my third pick at 13/8.
Marcus Rashford – Manchester United vs Reading
The trajectory that Marcus Rashford has been on over the past couple of months has been nothing short of sensational.
He has grabbed games by the scruff of the neck, and he has been a nightmare for defenders to face.
Earlier this week, he helped United take one giant step towards the EFL Cup Final with a superb solo goal in a 3-0 win away to Nottingham Forest, and his purple patch could well continue.
With 10 goals in his past 11 appearances in all competitions, Rashford has been virtually unplayable at times.
He could well have his say and pop up with a goal when Reading visit Old Trafford.
