CAMBRIDGE V BURY (FA CUP)
In the FA Cup, non-league Cambridge United will be looking to book their place in the second round of this year’s competition by beating managerless Bury of League 2 in their replay at the Abbey Stadium.
Whilst Cambridge sit proudly at the top of the Conference with a four point advantage over second placed Luton with an extra game to play, Bury are struggling towards the bottom of League 2 and are currently just two points above the dreaded relegation zone. With the way things are going, it wouldn’t be a surprise if these two have swapped divisions by this time next year.
Cambridge will undoubtedly be full of confidence and the 0-0 draw at Gigg Lane just over a week ago proves that Jez George’s side have the quality to match their League 2 opponents.
Furthermore, Bury’s away record is simply atrocious with the Shakers registering just one win on their travels all season. Wholesale changes over the summer simply have not worked, which ultimately cost Kevin Blackwell his job.
The stalemate at Gigg Lane was a decent result for Cambridge and, in front of their own fans, I fancy them to complete the job here.
READING V CHARLTON (CHAMPIONSHIP)
Two ex-Premier League sides will do battle at the Madjeski as Charlton Athletic make the short trip to Reading.
Since falling out of the top-flight in 2007, the Addicks have suffered some tough times and even spent a short time in the third-tier before winning promotion back to the Championship. However, this season a return to League One looks a far more likely possibility than one to the Premiership as the South London club are struggling in 20th place.
Reading on the other hand look much more suited to the challenge of trying for promotion. The Royals were only relegated from the Premiership last term and could be ready to bounce back at the first time of trying. They are currently amongst the play-off spots and thoughts of automatic promotion are still very much alive. Just two seasons ago, an incredible second half of the campaign saw Reading climb from mid-table obscurity to title-winners and that success will be a constant source of inspiration in their bid for promotion.
A run of 4 games without a win was ended with Friday night’s impressive victory in front of the TV cameras at Nottingham Forest and the Royals will be confident of making it back-to-back wins at home against a struggling Addicks.
Charlton’s lack of goals (14 in 17) could haunt them at the Madjeski. Home win.
SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY V LEICESTER (Championship)
Leicester City climbed to top spot in the Championship with Saturday’s 3-0 demolition of an inadequate Millwall and Nigel Pearson’s men will look to retain that position against an equally poor Sheffield Wednesday.
As well as sitting in the bottom three, Sheffield Wednesday are on a run of three consecutive defeats and have recorded just one victory in their last ten. That run saw manager Dave Jones sacked at the weekend and it seems unlikely that the Owls will hire a replacement before Tuesday’s encounter.
Leicester on the other hand have won 5 of their last 6 and will be supremely confident heading into this encounter at Hillsborough. If they are genuine contenders for the Championship title then this is the type of game the Foxes need to be winning; under the circumstances, they should be able to claim all three points.
In Dave Nugent, Chris Wood and Jamie Vardy, Leicester certainly have the firepower to cause Wednesday a lot of problems. The managerless Owls could be in for a long night.
Why not take advantage of the ‘acca insurance’ and add QPR, RANGERS and LUTON into the mix for a 6 fold of 23.49/1.
Remember if only one leg lets you down you will get your stake back as a free bet.
