Brentford v Rotherham (Brentford win)
· With just the one UCL fixture tonight I thought I would put together an accumulator to run alongside it to add a bit of extra excitement to our Tuesday evenings.
· We begin proceedings in West London where 3rd placed Brentford host relegation-threatened Rotherham this evening. Automatic promotion is no longer achievable for the Bees who will now look to secure 3rd place which in turn ‘should’ offer a more favourable playoff opponent.
· Meanwhile, the visitors are four points adrift of safety with two games in hand but recent form has been horrific and it seems clear that Paul Warne and his men are struggling to cope with the pressure.
· Brentford picked up a very impressive 1-0 win away at Bournemouth at the weekend to stretch their unbeaten run to 9 games and look to be returning to top form just at the right time with the playoffs approaching.
· They have also kept 4 clean sheets in their last 5 fixtures prior to tonight and have really tightened things up at the back.
· Struggle to see how the Millers score tonight having managed to notch only once in their previous 360 minutes of football.
· They will also have to do without first-choice goalkeeper Viktor Johansson who picked up an injury in the defeat to Barnsley at the weekend which is expected to keep him out here.
· Brentford massively impressed me at the weekend with their win at Bournemouth and seem to have developed a real maturity to their game in recent weeks.
· Expect them to get the job done tonight against a Rotherham side which has lost each of their last 4 games going in to tonight.
AFC Wimbledon v Rochdale (Over 1.5 goals)
· We stay in London for our second fixture of the night as we head to Wimbledon in an important fixture in League One at the wrong end of the table.
· Despite their poor league positions, both of these teams have put a good run together to try and save themselves, with the Dons having taken 13 points from a possible 15, and the Dale 10 from 12.
· Rochdale despite this run of form remains very much in danger and currently sit 22nd, 5 points adrift of safety. In reality they know they need a win tonight and their manager has admitted as much by saying nothing but a win will do.
· The result is actually irrelevant for us here with goals the stand-out in this game. With Rochdale desperate for a win I am expecting an open and entertaining game which is very much the norm for these sides.
· Wimbledon have scored 14 goals in their previous 5 games prior to day and in Joe Piggot have one of the in-form strikers in the division.
· He has 20 goals to his name this season and will lead the line once more for the Dons. Prior to the game tonight Wimbledon have actually seen over 1.5 goals feature in 4 of their last 5 games.
· Rochdale meanwhile are one of the most consistent in the league when it comes to market with 77% of their fixtures this season featuring over 1.5 goals- the joint 4th best record in the division.
Charlton v Crewe (Charlton win)
· We head to the South of London next where playoff hopefuls Charlton host Crewe this evening in a very important game for the Addicks.
· Charlton saw their 10 match unbeaten league run ended at the weekend by an impressive Peterborough and I don’t expect Nigel Adkins will be too disappointed.
· A win in SE7 on Tuesday night would definitely take Charlton back into the top six and move them a point ahead of Oxford United, who have played two fixtures more.
· Playoffs remain very much in the hands of Charlton and should they win their remaining games starting with Crewe tonight then they will finish inside the league’s top 6.
· Crewe meanwhile sit 15th and with both relegation and promotion no longer a possibility it is fair to say have nothing but professional pride left to play for.
· Recent form would suggest there season ended some time ago and with just one win from their last 5 there is little suggest they should really challenge Charlton at The Valley tonight.
· The hosts should be at close to full strength with Ryan Inniss is likely to be available despite being withdrawn late on against Peterborough United on Saturday, while Ian Maatsen is set for a return to the squad.
· Diallang Jaiyesimi will be sidelined, however, having picked up a hamstring injury at the weekend and is the only reported absentee within the squad.
· For Crewe, long-term absentees Oli Finney and Josh Lundstram have returned to training, but won’t be available on Tuesday evening.
· Charlton are a superior side and given the clear lack of motivation in the Crewe camp at the moment I expect the hosts to seal all 3 points tonight to push them in to the playoff places.
Cheltenham v Carlisle (Cheltenham Draw no bet)
· We drop a league and head to League Two next where league leaders Cheltenham require just a point tonight to secure promotion to League One.
· Michael Duff and his side have been the standout side in the division and I expect them to deservedly seal promotion tonight as they host Carlisle.
· The visitors meanwhile have realistically given up on their hopes of making the playoffs. They are 5 points behind 7th placed Newport with just 3 games remaining meaning it is very unlikely.
· Duff has confirmed his team came through unscathed in the 1-0 win over Colchester at the weekend and Will Boyle and Chris Clements remain the only absentees within an otherwise fully fit squad.
· Carlisle are five winless going in to tonight and this poor run of form and a vital time has ultimately cost them a playoff place.
· Despite a flying start to the season Chris Beech and his side have struggled massively since the turn of the year through no real fault of their own.
· Chris Beech’s side faced almost a month without fixtures in January, with a four week gap in games between January 2 and 30. A combination of Covid and weather postponements really halted Carlisle in their tracks and looks to have in reality killed their season.
· Cheltenham have won each of their last 4 on home soil without conceding a goal and with promotion on the cards tonight should they avoid defeat tonight I expect them to win and at the very least avoid defeat here.
King’s Lynn v Stockport (Over 2.5 goals)
· For our final selection of the night we drop out of the EFL and head to the National League where an in-form, promotion chasing Stockport travel to struggling King’s Lynn this evening.
· The visitors sit 4th following a run of 11 matches unbeaten and look the best team in the division on current form. They are trying their upmost to chase down league leaders Torquay who hold a 5 point advantage over them with 5 games left to play.
· King’s Lynn meanwhile have only one target between now and the end of the season and that is to try and financially stay afloat.
· They have struggled massively with money this season with nine players placed on furlough in an attempt to cut costs.
· Relegation has been dropped from the National League this season due to the pandemic which obviously helps King’s Lynn but the overall situation at the club remains worrying.
· The reverse fixture was played just a fortnight ago with Stockport running out 4-0 leaders and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a similar sort of scoreline tonight with plenty of goals on offer.
· Stockport are absolutely flying at the moment having notched 12 in their last 4 prior to tonight and I expect them to cause a vulnerable King’s Lynn defence all types of problems.
· The hosts have shocking at the back all season having conceded 72 goals seeing them with the 3rd worst defensive record in the National League. Those 72 goals have been leaked in just 34 games at an average of well over 2 goals conceded per game.
· Each of the last 4 Stockport games have featured over 2.5 goals as have 4 of the last 5 King’s Lynn games. Given the scoring form the visitors are in and chasing promotion I am expecting a lively game The Walks stadium tonight.
