Preston were excellent when beating Brighton last week, albeit at home, and while the Villains haven’t lost in twelve at home since their relegation to the league, they are far from a the cohesive unit that Simon Grayson has forged. I fancy that they’ll frustrate the home side and score so take them to win at
Cardiff v BURTON
It’s hard to distinguish between the relative merits of these two. We keep saying it, as does their manager, that Burton are not having the rub of the green. If luck gives itself up equally in this match, they have every chance of winning it.
Norwich v WOLVES
How Wolves didn’t oblige for us when battering Sheffield Wednesday three weeks ago can only be attributed to bad luck, as they hit the woodwork twice and created numerous good chances. They’re a team in the making under Paul Lambert, who will fancy this trip to his old employers while their own form is so erratic. Wolves to win at
Bradford v MILLWALL
Recent performances suggest that Millwall are sorting their act out, while Bradford have been stuttering a little. The away side at $3.3 is a decent bet.
Rochdale v OXFORD
Rochdale have won their last ten at home, and scored a hatful in the process so you may be forgiven for thinking that opposing them at $3.5 is madness. Or against all odds by Phil Collins. You should know “cause we’ve shared the laughter and the pain, and even shared the tears. You’re the only ones who really knew me at all”. Oxford away.
Blackpool v YEOVIL
Blackpool have been making mistakes, and I read on a matchbox recently that teams that make more mistakes lose more often. I fancy the Yeo men to upset the form book in this one at
Leyton Orient v MORECAMBE
Morecambe have a couple of players out from recent sendings off, while Orient are a club in disarray. Morecambe to pull off another away win, like they so nearly did last week at high-flying Carlisle. Back them at $3.6
