Charlton and Tranmere meet today on the back of headline-catching Johnstone’s Paint Trophy action in midweek.
Tranmere’s journey to Accrington was rightly halted on 39 minutes after 18-year-old Tom Bender suffered a horrific collision leaving him unconscious.
The defender was rushed to hospital but thankfully he has since been released and everyone here at news.bwin.com/en/ wishes him well and hopes for a speedy recovery.
Tranmere were 2-1 up at the time and bwin are offering 17/4 for them to take the points this weekend, with the draw available at 11/4.
Charlton were in action at home to Brentford and rather surprisingly were beaten 3-0.
However, in-form striker Bradley Wright-Phillips was given the night off, and with him back in the side this weekend normal service should be resumed.
The main goal for Chris Powell’s men will be to gain promotion so, fully focused, they will take some beating this weekend at 11/20.
The home side are yet to lose in the league this season and have a great potency going forward. As a Chesterfield fan I was at the Valley two weeks ago to witness this first hand and I was impressed.
They came out flying with great intensity in their attacking play and a repeat of this will make life hard for Tranmere, so Charlton to be winning at half-time and full-time could be the way to go, with this bet available at 13/10.
Another option in this game could be to back Charlton to overcome a one-goal handicap to win, with this having proved a successful ploy on their last two home games, as well as their last away game.
Bwin are offering 3/2 in this particular handicap market and punters who use their free £25 bet for joining bwin on this outcome could win £62.50 if it comes in.
Tranmere surprised many – including myself – with a bright start but have lost their last two away games against tough opposition in Preston and Huddersfield and are likely to face a similar challenge again.
Rovers haven’t been pushed aside to easily though, only going down 2-1 to Preston.
Given Charlton’s attacking nature I can see Tranmere hitting the back of the net, so backing both teams to score in the game at 83/100 could prove a smart move.
Sticking with this chain of thought that there will be goals, and the match to have over 2.5 goals looks likely and is available at 4/5.
