Odds, referee, TV details: Everything you need to know ahead of Sheffield United v Plymouth Argyle

Sheffield United will get some respite from their league troubles this weekend when they welcome Plymouth Argyle to Bramall Lane in the FA Cup fourth round.

Wednesday, 20th January 2021, 8:53 am

The game against Ryan Lowe’s League One outfit presents the Blades with an opportunity to secure a much-needed, confidence-boosting win after being swept aside by Tottenham Hotspur at the Lane on Sunday.

Chris Wilder’s men registered their first victory of a desperate campaign when they won 3-2 at Bristol Rovers in the third round and will come up against an Argyle side which progressed to this stage of the competition by winning by the same score at Championship Huddersfield Town.
