THE BOOKIES VIEW - Irvine's FA Cup hunters 300/ 1 for Wembley glory day

Mixed results in last weekend's FA Cup third round with Sheffield United losing out to Villa but Wednesday overturning Championship outfit Bristol City.

Wednesday will fancy their chances of going a bit further as they play Hereford United in the fourth round. The Owls are a juicy 300/1 to go all the way - so you're getting 150/1 to reach Wembley!

Doncaster are still in with a chance after their 2-2 draw with Premier League Wolves - a tricky trip to Molineux for the replay awaits though.

Back to the league and Mickey Adams' tough induction continues with a daunting-looking visit to Coventry this weekend - the Blades are 5/4 draw no bet if you fancy them to get a result. Donny are 13/8 at home to Reading - we can't separate those two but home advantage may just come into play and Barnsley are 7/2 away at Hull. Charlton make the trip to Hillsborough, and we make the Owls a touch of odds-on at 20/21.

In League Two we fancy the top two to take the spoils this weekend - with Rotherham as short as 8/11 at home to Southend and Chesterfield (5/6) when they host Stevenage on Saturday. Incidentally, whilst Chesterfield have a five-point cushion at the top of League Two, don't forget that Rotherham have a game in hand - win that and they are just two points adrift. For this reason I'd fancy backing The Millers at 4/1 to win the title outright rather than the 9/4 we're offering about the Spireites!
