Mouth-watering returns on offer for Capital One Cup giant-killing five-fold

The magic of the cup? Maybe. We've picked out five underdogs who are outstanding value to progress to the second round

9/2 – Notts County to beat Huddersfield Town

No club has made better use of the summer transfer window than Notts County. Eighteen signings by manager Ricardo Moniz has left the club harvesting a squad full of quantity and quality.

Doubts regarding whether the side would be able to gel quickly were dispelled with an impressive 2-0 victory away at Stevenage on Saturday.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, were dire in defeat at Hull and, with few new signings to speak of, it could be a long season for the Terriers.

This fixture – even though County are away from home – has real upset potential.

3/1 – Morecambe to beat Sheffield United

All the build up and excitement of the new season was extinguished in 90 minutes for Sheffield United, who crashed to a 4-0 defeat at Gillingham.

This confidence-sapping match also resulted in a number of injuries to the squad, leaving manager, Nigel Adkins, with real selection problems for his side’s clash with Morecambe.

The Shrimps were poor, too, in defeat at Hartlepool, but it is at home where the Lancashire club do all their damage, winning more than 65% of total points at the Globe Arena.

They are a massive price.

13/10 – Northampton to beat Blackpool

No team has tumbled down the Football League ladder quite like Blackpool in recent years, and Northampton will look to take advantage of their opponents’ descent when the pair clash on Tuesday.

The Cobblers, who opened their campaign with a 1-0 win against Bristol Rovers on Saturday, will fancy their chances.

The Seasiders have been eliminated in each of their last six League Cup ties – the last five of which have come against lower-league opposition.

5/1 – Accrington Stanley to beat Hull

Underfire boss Steve Bruce is under pressure to deliver an immediate return to the Premier League for the Tigers – an objective that has not been made easier following the loss of 10 first-team players in the summer.

So it is not unfair to say the Capital One Cup is not the Championship side’s priority this season.

In front of a home crowd at the Crown Ground, Stanley will fancy their chances and are fine value to cause an upset.

7/2 – Walsall to beat Nottingham Forest

After all the hype of a potential return to the Premier League last season, Nottingham Forest ultimately disappointed, slumbering to 14th position in the Championship.

Following a transfer embargo and management changes, the Tricky Trees started the new season like they finished the last, with a disappointing 1-0 defeat at Brighton.

Walsall manager Dean Smith is excited at the prospect of facing the two-time European Cup winners and a positive result against their confidence-stricken opponents at the City Ground is possible.
