  1. Apologies for the crude edit. Team news from AFCW below This is another one that looks possibly a draw - as Theo points out there could be a few in L1. AFC WIMBLEDON V GILLINGHAM Kingsmeadow Sky Bet League 1 Saturday March 23 Kick-off, 3pm Team News: Gills boss Steve Lovell continues to be without midfielder Billy Bingham (calf), although the former Crewe man is making a good recovery and could be available within the next 10-14 days. Centre-back Gabriel Zakuani (ankle) will be out for the rest of the season. Ricky Holmes (back) is unlikely to feature on Saturday but is in full training and could be available next weekend. Alex Lacey (ankle) played 90 minutes in the midweek defeat to Maidstone and is likely to be a part of the squad. Dean Parrett and Tahvon Campbell have both recovered from respective illnesses. As for Wimbledon, Will Nightingale is a doubt for the weekend (knee) but Rod McDonald could be back after playing an hour for the reserves earlier in the week. Former Gills man Deji Oshilaja has missed the last month and is not expected to be involved despite making good progress on a bruised foot, while forward Kwesi Appiah (hamstring) is also doubtful.
  2. From BAFC website: BURTON ALBION TEAM NEWS The Brewers have a fully-fit squad ahead of today’s game, although they will be without top goalscorer Liam Boyce, who is away on international duty with Northern Ireland. That means that Albion will be forced into at least one change from the side that beat Blackpool 3-0 last Saturday. ACCRINGTON STANLEY TEAM NEWS There will be no reunion with Dimitar Evtimov this afternoon, with the ex-Brewers keeper currently on international duty with the Bulgarian national side. On-loan forward Paul Smyth is also away, having joined up with Albion forward Liam Boyce in the Northern Ireland squad. Seamus Conneely could return from injury to feature in this afternoon’s game. OFFICIALS Lee Swabey is the man in the middle today. The Devon-born referee has taken charge of 10 League One games this season and issued 33 yellow cards. He has also given five red cards and awarded two penalties.
  3. Thanks for the team news Theo - I agree with your conclusions re Luton and Bradford
  4. Thank you for the preview articles particularly Mala and Steve. Really struggling to find previews and team news (even BBC haven’t bothered) so going on form alone for most. I do know Boyce missing from Burton as he’s on duty for NI could have an impact as he’s a very busy mf as well as goal threat. He’s not been in great scoring form since his injury and although Akins, Allen and Fraser have been scoring, Boyce is often involved. Burton slowly recovering from their setback related to the league cup and still have a chance of play offs. Stanley capable of getting a draw without boyce but I think it will be a narrow 1goal win for brewers given their momentum and goalscorers threat.
  5. Thanks Mag ~ also worth noting the absence of Liam Boyce for Burton at home to Coventry today in L1. He’s on international duty with NI. he is their top scorer but his midfield and holding influence is considerable especially in home games. Burton still a handful but I expect a Coventry win and goals. thank you all for the posts
  6. And please do note that top scorer Liam Boyce - who is more than just a striker for the Brewers - (and that's Clough's view) will be a few hundred miles away sitting on the bench watching inferior players this afternoon. This is quite important imo.
  7. After a very successful December, Dundee United lost to the St Mirren last Sat otherwise they would be top of Scottish League 1 today. Instead the Buddies are. I would expect a strong reaction to that defeat when DU face a Brechin team who held them at 1-1 in November but since then have lost 5 on the bounce conceding 15 goals in the process. I can see DU meeting the -2 Asian which is 1.95 (Bet365) After securing top spot, the Buddies face Morton and this is by no means a shoo in. Rather than predict the result, I would opt for the 2.125 about over 2.75 on the Asian goal line (365)- the two sides have shared 9 goals in this season's 2 previous encounters and both are scoring freely. I'd be grateful if anyone can discuss further and/or provide other odds as I'm quoting my bookie which may not be the best odds. GL
  8. Re the Burton game away - note that they're turning the corner having won twice away recently and aren't getting mullered. They're available at 1.9 with a .75 goal Asian start. I think that could work. P.s. A minor point re the football acci tip for today - take the 0 ah for Bristol r and Scnuthorpe as you will get a few extra quid more than you would for the DNB option recommended in the post - if your bookie offers Asian options.
  9. Re: World Cup Europe Qualification > Tuesday October 15th Is that a trick? I would be happy to lay Poland failing to score at Wembley :-)
  10. Re: Netherlands Jupiler League 2013/2014 good call. For what it's worth Rubber, I think there is a language problem as I was quite convinced we were being advised that first teamers were being drafted in. Funny old game.
