Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Swansea City will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sheffield United when they host Gilingham at their Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Swans are undefeated in previous four league fixtures and they set up a meeting with Gilingham in the FA Cup round 4 by beating Aston Villa 3-0 on the road. The Swans aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration and seeing that the League One side are not enjoying a season to remember, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Gilingham sit in the danger zone in the League One standings and you should bear in mind that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Wallsall at the weekend. In their last meeting in a competitive game Swansea City defeated Gilingham 2-1.
