Birmingham vs Hull:

1pt Both teams to score @ 5/4 with William Hill

Tonight sees a play-off hopeful host an automatic promotion hopeful at St. Andrew’s.

Birmingham come in to the game after a 2-0 defeat away to QPR and, prior to that, a handful of low-scoring affairs – over their last six games they only managed to score five and conceded four. The fact that three of those four goals came in the one game highlights further just how much they’ve struggled to find the net. They do have one of the worst attacks in the league and because of that they consistently struggle to break down the better defences. Doubts over Gleeson’s fitness are a bit of a worry as he is one of just a few players who has managed to score a handful of goals.

Hull hardly come in to this game full of goals either, scoring just four and conceding one over their last six outings. They have the best defence in the league away from home and the joint-best overall so seeing them regularly keep their opponents out is no surprise. Steve Bruce has a settled team at the moment and comes in to this with a full squad and the comfort of having a full 4 days between this game and their big FA Cup tie at home against Arsenal. That game should be far enough away for his players to be fully focused on this test.

All of the above points to a low-scoring affair so it is therefore understandable to see that under 2.5 and both teams not to score are comfortably odds-on. Having said that, when you look in to how Birmingham have done at home recently and how Hull have got on away, I think there is a bit of value in going against popular opinion. The last six games at St. Andrew’s have produced five Birmingham wins and twelve goals, nine of them being for the home side. Hull’s last six away games have seen them come out of top four times, scoring six of the nine goals. Therefore, both of these teams should be coming in to this with confidence. For that reason, I’m happy to take both teams to score and hope for a thrilling 1-1 draw, a nine-goal thriller or something in between. As Mark Twain once said, “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it’s time to pause and reflect”. Hopefully Mr. Twain’s quote comes good for us tonight…

Middlesbrough vs Wolves:

1pt Middlesbrough (-1 goal) to beat Wolves @ 15/8 with Skybet

Middlesbrough welcome Wolves to the Riverside with the chance to go top with a win. Despite losing in midweek they should come in to this game with confidence high, partly due to the last time they played at the Riverside when they put on a real show against Cardiff. Despite falling behind to a 30+ yard wonder goal the home side looked comfortable, creating a hatful of chances. Teams are relying on moments like Fabio’s to break down Middlesbrough at the Riverside because they’re coming up against the best overall, best home and best away defence in the Championship. It was interesting to see Aitor Karanka go with two strikers against Blackburn and if he does the same again tonight Wolves should be in for a rough ride. Rhodes has looked very sharp without yet finding the net and Nugent bagged a goal shortly after coming on vs Cardiff. Ramirez was outstanding vs Cardiff so he may come back in in place of either of the frontmen.

Wolves too should come here with their heads high. They stopped a mini-slump by winning at the weekend but they haven’t won away in 4 games. They’ve already played 4 games away to sides in the top seven and on three of those occasions they’ve let in two or more – twice conceding four. Wolves won’t be able to rely on their fans as much as usual tonight due to a boycott which should see less than 250 travel to cheer them on – a lot less than previous League Cup and League visits to the Riverside.

Middlesbrough rarely concede at home and, if producing anything like the displays vs Cardiff and Fulham, they could run away comfortable winners here. I fancy them to win to nil but think the value is with giving Wolves a goal start. It’s tough to see the away side breaking down the home defence so I’m happy to cheer for a comfortable Middlesbrough win.

2 tips from me for the weekend

Crawley-Morecambe 2 @ 2/1 , guests are on 6 matches losing streak,they are actually not that bad side,were unlucky in the last couple of games(especially with Carlisle at home),plus have the best striker Miller back into the squad for tomorrow.Seems like Red Devils are being a bit lucky lately (especially vs.Plymouth at home),time for reality check,should be an easy win for the Shrimps ,maybe even with 2 goal margin...

Newport-Wycombe 2 @ 7/4 

The Chairboys are still right in the mix for the playoffs,they are very solid away side (drew with Villa,won at Millwall,plus other few  good away results in the league this season).Ainsworth boys are having few injury concerns,but still should have too much for Newport side,which is virtually safe by now,they are going well lately,but think that tomorrow Wanderers will scrape it by an odd goal.

Cambridge vs Exeter

Cambridge is red-hot at the moment, as it charges towards a play-off spot. In strong form and scoring, especially at home.   Exeter is not doing badly itself and has head-to-head advantage over the hosts; but blows hot and cold away from home. I think hosts' strong form will prevail but expect goals in the game. Home win.

Dagenham and Redbridge vs York City

Hosts have been improving but without the requisite results ie defensive solidity but lacking offensively. Visiting York city are having problems - conceding soft goals, especially away from home. Against a direct relegation rival at home, this is a must -win game for the hosts. Home win.

Are the Rams collapsing again?!? Well if they do not win this one , yes.like everymatch, there is nothing for granted, but they spent money and i expect them to be part of next playoffs.Hudders have some missings and are not troubled by any league position, so at IPro i expect a solid Derby win 6 u @ 1.83
