Our Going For Goals team are back with a treble covering the FA Cup fourth round and the Championship this weekend.

Arsenal should be among the goals again

Brighton v Arsenal (DJ)

The Seagulls have scored in each of their last six games and should be relishing the chance to tackle Premier League opposition once again after taking the scalp of Newcastle in the last round.

Gus Poyet has his side playing open and attractive football with the emphasis on getting forward and there is every chance we will see them in a positive light once more against the Gunners, who have conceded 11 in their last six outings.

The latter arrive on the back of a scintillating midweek performance against West Ham with some of the speed of their attacking football currently a joy to watch. Expect the goals to flow.

Huddersfield v Leicester (NH)

Huddersfield start life without Simon Grayson in this FA Cup fourth-round clash and it looks like a good shout for Going For Goals.

The Terriers are without a Championship win in 12 games but there have been plenty of goals about in their matches with 1-6, 2-2 and 2-4 just three of the scorelines in the previous two months.

Leicester are going much better in the league as they sit second. The cup provides a different test but one they should get through after a little bit of effort.

Nottingham Forest v Watford (CH)

Watford replaced Crystal Palace as the Championship's leading scorers following last weekend's thumping 4-0 victory over Huddersfield and we fancy them to find the net once more this weekend as they look to boost their promotion hopes.

The sixth-placed Hornets, who boast the second best away record in the division, have also netted more goals than anyone else on the road with 29 from 13 games and head to the City Ground just four points behind Leicester in second.

However, Gianfranco Zola's side don't exactly possess the tightest defence around - keeping just five league clean sheets all season - and play-off chasing Nottingham Forest have scored in each of their last seven home games in all competitions.
