5 tips for Tuesday's Football League fixtures
These picks - from League One, League Two and the EFL Trophy - are your best bet to make some midweek money.
Shrewsbury to beat Oldham –
Shrewsbury are winless in five, though that run did include two FA Cup ties against West Ham and a trip to second-place Blackburn.
They should get back on track against Oldham, who they beat on New Year’s Day at the New Meadow, where they have lost just twice in 19 matches this season.
The visitors were beaten 3-0 at Peterborough last Saturday and have now lost four away games on the spin.
Chelsea Academy to beat Oxford –
Oxford were beaten at home by rock-bottom Bury – who had lost their previous seven matches to nil – on Saturday.
That was their second consecutive defeat and also resulted in manager Pep Clotet losing his job.
Chelsea’s second string, which has featured Michy Batshuayi and Charly Musonda in this competition, beat Portsmouth in the previous round and also blitzed MK Dons 4-0 in their final group game.
Scunthorpe to beat Doncaster –
Scunthorpe were beaten 3-1 by in-form Gillingham at the weekend, but that was their first defeat in seven in all competitions.
The Iron have also won six out of nine at Glanford Park, so should get back to winning ways on Tuesday.
Doncaster earned a point away to promotion-chasing Shrewsbury at the weekend, but are without a win in their last four league games.
Newport to beat Morecambe –
Newport’s 2-1 victory over Crawley on Saturday was their fourth on the spin in all competitions and sixth home game without defeat.
That run of results has seen the Exiles qualify for the fourth round of the FA Cup, having knocked out Leeds, and climb to within two points of the League Two play-off spots.
Morecambe were beaten 1-0 at Luton last time out and have now lost four of their last five on the road.
Notts County to beat Crawley –
Even after their 2-1 defeat to Exeter at the weekend, Notts County have lost just two of their last 14 in all competitions.
Kevin Nolan’s side also have the second-best home record in League Two, having won nine and drawn four of their 14 games at Meadow Lane.
Crawley were beaten at Newport last time out and have lost four of their last seven away games.
