Sheffield United take on Millwall in the FA Cup fourth round this weekend, in what could prove a tricky tie against a side who have lost just one match since November last year.

Writing his weekly predictions piece for BBC Sport, Mark Lawrenson, who hasn't been the most generous to the Blades with his score tips this season, this time backed Chris Wilder's side to secure a comfortable 2-0 win over the Championship outfit.

Lawro wrote: "Millwall have built a bit of momentum up of late, and are unbeaten in six games."

"Normally, you would think Sheffield United would seriously change their side for the FA Cup, but maybe their league position means Chris Wilder can go for this a bit more - a cup run would be an icing on the cake for a great season for the Blades."

United may have lost in three of their last four visits to The Den, but their doggedness away from home this season has seen them lose just twice away from Bramall Lane in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, new signing Jack Robinson could be handed his Blades debut on Saturday afternoon, following his switch from Nottingham Forest earlier in the week.

Upon joining the club, he told the Star: "When I was younger and inexperienced I didn’t know how to handle it but the experience of playing week in, week out in the Championship has given me the stepping stone to try and prove myself in the Premier League."

"I’ve put the hard work in and now this is my opportunity to try and prove myself again.”
