Sky Bet Preview: Sunderland AFC

9 November 2018

Port Vale welcome Sunderland AFC to Burslem this weekend for their first round tie of The Emirates FA Cup - the first televised fixture at Vale Park for just over six years.

Neil Aspin's side head into the fixture as the underdogs, with The Valiants priced at 7/2 to win in 90 minutes. Jack Ross' outfit are favourites and can be found at 3/4 to win in 90 minutes with Sky Bet.

Tom Pope upped his goals tally in the league to seven goals when he scored against Notts County last weekend, and if you fancy the Vale skipper to replicate his league goal-scoring form in the cup this weekend, Pope is priced at 15/8 to find the net in 90 minutes. To score a brace, you can back Pope at 8/1.

The last time the two sides met was back in December 1998, when The Black Cats came out 2-0 victors over The Valiants, however if you fancy a reverse result of the 90's league score-line, Port Vale to win 2-0 in 90 minutes can be found at 25/1.

You can take advantage of Sky Bet's match specials as Port Vale to score two plus goals in the first-half can be found at 10/1, whereas Sunderland to score in the first ten minutes is priced at 9/2.

If you think Aspin's side will win and both teams will score, Sky Bet are offering you 7/1, however if you want to back The Valiants to win to nil, 8/1 will be your odds.
