Back-to-back wins put Sheffield United them firmly back in the play-off berths and among the favourites for promotion.

Following the 2-0 win at Bury on Tuesday and the signing of Leeds Under-21 striker Dominic Poleon on loan until the end of the season, BetVictor have the Blades at 8/1 for the League One title.

Danny Wilson’s move to bolster his attack is another sign of the ambition of the club to get back among the automatic promotion places.

Next stop for the Blades is Saturday’s home clash against relegation strugglers Colchester, who have suffered seven defeats in their last 10 league games, although they did manage a one-goal victory against 10-man Preston in their last outing. BetVictor feel that, on current form, there is only one outcome and we offer 4/6 the home win, 22/5 for Colchester and 3/1 the draw.

Sheffield Wednesday take their recent good form to Birmingham next midweek, fresh off the back of two wins and a draw, the latter being the comeback at home to Derby County in a fine second half display of attitude.

With Birmingham in steady form under manager Lee Clark and facing a tough home test to Watford on Saturday, we fancy a great end-to-end affair, with new Owls signing Connor Wickham eager to impress.

Don’t forget, at BetVictor we offer unique markets, and we will give you 10/3 for the Owls to finish higher than Huddersfield and Charlton with only four points in it at the time of writing!

Three league wins in a row for relegation-zone placed Barnsley have given David Flitcroft’s side a major boost, and they take their confidence to MK Dons on Saturday in the FA Cup fifth round with both sides looking to progress. The Tykes are 2/1 to move on to the star studded sixth round at BetVictor.

MK Dons, on the back of some very poor form, 11/8 for the win, 12/5 for the draw. This will be one to watch for good old FA Cup passion.

Six points separate Chesterfield in 11th and Rotherham in the play-off zone in seventh position, and the pair meet in a mouth-watering derby at the New York Stadium on Saturday.

An away allocation for the Spireites of 2,300 seats is sold out, and home fans may well make it a total sell-out.

The teams are in indifferent form of late, with Rotherham winning five and losing five of their last 10 games and Chesterfield winning three, losing three and drawing four.

This one is best left to the punters to decide, 21/20 for the Millers home win, 13/5 for the draw and 11/4 for Chesterfield to grab an away win and close the gap to three points, although they have played one game more than Steve Evans’ team.

Both teams won by two clear goals in their last league outings, and it should be a cracking game.

Doncaster could be sitting pretty at the top of League One if it wasn’t for two defeats and a draw in their last three league outings.

Rovers will look to end their bookie-pleasing form away to Crawley on Monday night. The hosts will be looking to bounce back after leading away to Scunthorpe, only to be turned over by the League One strugglers 2-1. Rovers look decent value at 7/4 the away win,

BetVictor will give you 17/10 currently for the Crawley Town home win, and 12/5 the draw.
