Peterborough can build first leg advantage over Orient

| 10.05.2014

The Football League play-offs are now in full swing and on Saturday the League One and League Two action gets underway with some mouth-watering clashes.

Ladbrokes News’ Oliver Yew runs the rule over all three of Saturday’s play-off fixtures, picking out Peterborough, Rotherham and York City in an enticing 19/1 treble!

Peterborough to beat Leyton Orient @ 13/10

Peterborough have hit form at just the right time and could be the dark horses for promotion back to the Championship.

With Four wins from their last five at London Road, Darren Ferguson’s side will be looking to take a first leg advantage down to east London against an Orient side with just one win from their last four on the road.

Preston North End and Rotherham to draw @ 23/10

One of the best home sides in League One meets one of the best away teams as Preston host Rotherham in the first leg of this play-off semi-final.

Nothing separated the sides in a pulsating encounter at Deepdale back in February and they still could not be split in a 0-0 draw at the New York Stadium.

So, yes, you’ve guessed it – get set for the third draw between the Lilywhites and the Millers this season!

York City to beat Fleetwood @ 6/4

Momentum is a key word when it comes to play-off football and with that in mind it’s hard to oppose a York City side who are unbeaten in their last 17 League Two matches.

The Minstermen have conceded just two goals in their last nine matches at Bootham Crescent and are a tough nut to crack in front of their own fans.

Fleetwood, who just missed out on automatic promotion, will have fond memories of their last visit to York after a 2-0 victory but that will count for little as York are an entirely different proposition this time around.
