History and recent form point to Leeds victory over Hull

| 09.11.2010

Hull find winning against Leeds virtually impossible and there is no obvious reason why this record is likely to improve in the current season.

Leeds have only lost twice to Hull in 89 years and only one of these defeats has come at Elland Road, which happened to be in the second tier of English football in 1987.

Hull are 10/3 to collect a second victory, but the fact they have taken just three points from the last 21 available and not won in seven league games does not inspire much confidence.

Leeds are 5/6 to beat Hull in the Championship betting market despite having lost their last three at Elland Road and having the worst defensive home record in the Championship so far this season.

A score draw could be the most likely outcome at Turf Moor in Burnley’s clash with Doncaster.

Burnley have shared the points in six of their last nine Championship games, while Doncaster have scored in each of their last seven games.

In Burnley’s favour is that all of their victories this season have come at home and they are 10/11 to beat Doncaster.

The visitors are 10/3 to secure maximum points, with the 2-2 draw a particularly big price at 14/1.

Millwall’s troubles in attack and the fact that Norwich are strong at keeping clean sheets on their travels may mean that the struggles of Kenny Jackett’s team to win games may be in line to continue.

The Lions have won just two of their last 11 league matches and they are without the services of top-scorer Steve Morison, who is suspended.

Meanwhile, Neil Harris has an ankle problem and Theo Robinson has returned to Huddersfield for treatment on a knee injury.

Norwich have kept out the opposition in four away games this season and are 2/1 to take advantage of Millwall’s striker crisis and take victory.

Both matches between the pair in League One last season ended in favour of the home team. See the whole Millwall vs Norwich match betting odds market.
