Saunders’ men 4/1 to beat the Tractor Boys

Doncaster Rovers are 4/1 via Boylesports to snap a five-match winless sequence in the Championship by getting the better of Ipswich at Portman Road, where Totesport mark 11/4 against the stalemate.

Sportingbet price Barnsley at 7/2 to follow up the midweek success against Hull by gathering a maximum haul at the Amex Stadium, although bookies lean towards hosts Brighton in that one, Ladbrokes rating them at 5/6 to send the Tykes home empty-handed.

Sheffield Wednesday, third in League One, have lost just one of their last eight games and they have an even better record when you just focus on their matches at Hillsborough, where the Owls have won seven out of seven.

Tackling Brentford on their own patch then, Gary Megson’s men are odds-on favourites at 17/20 with Sportingbet while Totesport make the Bees 7/2 to put the first blemish on Wednesday’s home record and Victor Chandler post 11/4 against the draw.

Brentford emerged triumphant here in the corresponding fixture last season and that could influence the thinking of sceptics but as last week’s triumph against Chesterfield was only the visitors’ second in nine attempts, Megson’s troops should enjoy the upper hand. They’re 15/2 with Skybet to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline as they did at Wycombe last weekend and bet365 chalk 11/4 against another victory for Wednesday by a one-goal margin.

Those expecting a more comfortable triumph for the Owls can head to the handicaps, where Stan James penalise the hosts by a goal at odds of 9/4, a 3-1 triumph (12/1, Totesport) would ensure that wager is a winner while Boylesports price Megson’s charges at 7/4 to be in front at the end of each half.

Sheffield United have drawn three out of their last five and Betdaq offer odds of 3.4 (12/5) for the Blades to also share the spoils as they head to Stevenage. The hosts have taken 10 points from their last available dozen and they’re 6/1 via Betfred to hold Danny Wilson’s men to a 1-1 stalemate at Broadhall Way, where United can be backed at even money in Paddy Power’s ‘draw no bet’ market.

More confident fans of course will prefer to tackle Ladbrokes’ 7/4 chalked against an away win while Partybets rate a Blades triumph after an even first half at 9/2 and bet365 offer odds of 9/1 for United to grab the game’s only goal.

Rotherham have now gone nine League Two matches without a victory but Sportingbet quote them at 13/10 to bring that run to an end as they entertain Aldershot.
