Leeds to beat Stoke
Leeds ended a run of three straight defeats last Friday as they beat Derby 2-0 at Elland Road amid the Spygate controversy that has made headlines recently.
Manager Marcelo Bielsa went on record earlier this week to explain his thorough analysis of each of Leeds’ opponents, revealing he had studied all of Luton’s games this season after their former manager Nathan Jones’ move to Stoke last week.
Leeds won the reverse fixture 3-1 on the opening day of the season and are great value to complete a league double over a Potters side that are winless in six and were knocked out of the FA Cup by League One Shrewsbury in midweek.
Barnsley to beat AFC Wimbledon
Barnsley strolled to a 3-0 victory over a Bradford side that had won four of their previous five matches last week and achieve a similar result here.
That victory ensured the Tykes have dropped just two points in their last five league games, with that draw coming away to the division’s best home side, Luton.
Wimbledon have improved since Wally Downes’ arrival as manager last month, losing just one of his seven league games in charge. However, that defeat came against league leaders Portsmouth on New Year’s Day and they have earned just one point in their seven matches against the current top six this season.
Charlton to beat Accrington
Charlton won 3-0 away to Shrewsbury last weekend and are a great price to bag another victory back at The Valley, where they have dropped just two points in their last six league games and are unbeaten in eight.
Accrington haven’t scored in their last three league games and have won just two of their last 12 matches. They were also beaten 3-0 at relegation-threatened Bradford in their last away game.
Portsmouth to beat Oxford
League One pacesetters Portsmouth were beaten 1-0 at home to mid-table Blackpool last weekend, but their fortunes are more promising on the road.
Kenny Jackett’s side have lost just one of their 18 away games in all competitions this season and are on a three-game winning streak that saw them beat Championship promotion chasers Norwich in the FA Cup third round.
Oxford are currently on a seven-match winless run in all competitions and have lost to nil against strugglers Bristol Rovers and out-of-form Southend in their last two matches at the Kassam Stadium.
MK Dons to beat Crewe
MK Dons were leapfrogged by Bury last weekend as they surrendered a 3-1 lead to lose 4-3 away, but their home form indicates they are worth backing to get back to winning ways.
Paul Tisdale’s side thumped Cambridge 6-0 in their last match at Stadium MK and have won seven of their last eight league games at home.
Crewe have the worst travelling record in League Two, having won just one and lost 10 of their 14 away games this season.
