The downcast weather may have put paid to many of the past week’s football league fixtures but this Saturday’s fourfold of Rotherham, Brentford, MK Dons and Wolves could leave punters with a sunny disposition.
Backed at odds of just over 7/1, this League One accumulator could see you land some serious cash with a return of £84.80 for anyone betting £10 with Ladbrokes on these particular selections.
Last weekend’s resounding 3-0 win away at Walsall put an end to a run of three straight defeats for the MK Dons who head into this fixture confident of building on that success.
Karl Robinson’s team have been solid at Stadium MK of late, with just one narrow defeat to Tranmere in their last four fixtures in the league, and will relish the visit of an Oldham team that has claimed victory in just one of their last six games on the road.
The Dons have also won the last two meetings between the teams in Milton Keynes with the Latics failing to score in this away fixture in each of the previous four meetings at the ground.
Confidence is high with Wolves at present, who head into this game in search of a fifth consecutive League One victory and a fourth straight win at Molineux.
Home form has certainly been the cornerstone of Kenny Jackett’s success with the club, who have lost just one of their last eight as hosts and should have few problems against a Notts County team that has lost three of its last four, conceding 11 goals along the way.
Wolves beat the Magpies 1-0 at Meadow Lane earlier this term and after scoring two or more in each of their last four wins, a big scoreline could be on the cards.
The Millers were among those to benefit from the extreme weather conditions, earning an extra week of respite following their impressive 2-1 victory over high-flying Leyton Orient.
Now, weather permitting, Steve Evans will be expecting his team to build on that result with a home win over an inconsistent Stevenage team.
An early Gillingham red card may have helped Boro to a much-needed win last time out, but they won’t be so lucky against Rotherham, who will be expected to inflict a fourth consecutive defeat on the Hertfordshire club, having already won 3-0 at Broadhall Way earlier in the season.
The Alex let a 2-0 lead slip against an out-of-form Bradford City to draw 3-3 last time out in League One and things could be about to get a whole lot worse against Brentford.
A 1-1 draw with Shrewsbury may have taken some of the sting out of the promotion chaser’s tail, but Mark Warburton’s men remain 10 games unbeaten heading into this encounter and will fancy their chances after beating Crewe 5-0 at Griffin Park back in November.
That was the third consecutive win Brentford have recorded over the Alex and with the visitors unbeaten in four on the road this could be one for the away fans.
