Wrexham vs Sheffield United
English FA Cup
Date: 29 January 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Racecourse Ground (Wrexham).
Wrexham stunned Coventry by bagging four goals at The Coventry Building Society Arena earlier this month.
They have thus booked a fourth round clash against another Championship side Sheffield United, scheduled for this Sunday afternoon at Racecourse Ground.
There are no doubts the local fans will make an electrifying atmosphere in and around the stadium as they do not have the opportunity to watch the second-placed team in the Championship at their venue.
Wrexham are enjoying a fantastic campaign in the fifth class of English football this season. They are three points clear atop the National League ladder after 27 games.
The fact they are led by popular head coach Phil Parkinson (used to coach many famous teams in higher divisions in the recent years) says enough about Wrexham’s ambitions.
Parkinson can be particularly satisfied with his team’s attacking displays as Wrexham bagged 70 goals in the inaugural 27 matches in the division.
Given they are up against Sheffield United who have been quite efficient themselves in Championship this season, we should be in for an exciting afternoon of football on Sunday at Racecourse Ground.
The Blades will also enter this match high on confidence following a streak of eight victories and a draw in the previous nine games in all competitions.
Sheffield United are on the best way to earn the automatic promotion to the Premier League this season, being as many as 13 points clear off third-placed Watford at the moment.

- This will only be the second head to head meeting between Wrexham and Sheffield United.
