A first win of his second spell at the Leeds helm beckons for caretaker boss Neil Redfearn as his Whites side tackle a Charlton team for whom the wheels are beginning to wobble in recent weeks.
The west Yorkshire outfit can be backed to topple their south London adversaries at a steady 6/5 and rank among the best bets of the evening’s action in the Championship.
Leeds to beat Charlton @ 6/5
Wolves’ win in the previous game contested at Elland Road resulted in Darko Milanic being sacked before he’d had time to unpack all the stuff he brought from Slovenia, but it was only the second time a visitor had got the better of Leeds on their own patch.
Redfearn has a 100 per cent home record in command, overseeing flawless victories over Bolton and Huddersfield in the two matches he took charge of.
The Addicks have been beaten on both of their previous away days without scoring and have bagged more than a solitary goal in a single game just once all season.
Middlesbrough and Norwich HT result – draw @ 21/20
Should results go their way, either outfit could sit the summit of the Championship come the close of play.
Recent form favours Boro, but Norwich are stronger on the road so there’s every chance of both sides negating one another at the Riverside.
It certainly looks as though this will be the case at the interval, considering each of the hosts’ last three at base camp have been all square after 45, which is also true of four of the Canaries’ previous five.
Ipswich to score exactly two goals v Wolves @ 29/10
The Tractor Boys are another team to have seen form desert them in recent weeks, but the goals are still going in two by two at Portman Road.
Five of seven opposing goalkeepers have been breached not once, but twice at the home of the East Anglian outfit.
Wolves are faring better in the league standings, but their leaky backline is threatening to undermine the heroics of their frontmen.
They haven’t lost an away match since the opening day, but have conceded an average of two goals per game across their last four.
