With remaining matches in short supply, it’s bottoms firmly on the edge of seats for fans of those teams at the wrong end of the Premier League table, but there are plenty of would-be heroes waiting in the wings.
Below we’ve identified three danger men who could be making headlines in some absolutely crucial relegation battles and turning a decent profit for their backers in the process.
Hugo Rodallega to score against Hull @ 11/4
It may seem like ‘Hot Rod’ has taken an awfully long time to locate his scoring boots for Fulham this season, but he’s been plagued by injury and has actually got a very healthy games-to-goals ratio.
The former Wigan poacher’s goals in successive games helped the Cottagers to six points in their most recent wins over Aston Villa and Norwich, taking his burgeoning tally to six from just 15 appearances.
At home to an out-of-sorts Hull outfit, Rodallega is a prime candidate to pounce.
Connor Wickham to score against Cardiff @ 8/5
Out on loan at Leeds until very recently, England under-21 star Wickham is on a fast-track course to Black Cats immortality judging by the impact he’s made since his return.
Three goals against the Premier League’s top brass in Manchester City and Chelsea have ensured Sunderland’s hopes of survival are very much alive.
The athletic striker will be relishing this chance to help his team try and leapfrog Cardiff.
Graham Dorrans to score against West Ham @ 13/4
Luckily for Dorrans, Pepe Mel has brought the Scotsman back out from the Hawthorns wilderness since his arrival.
The Spaniard has been paid in kind for his decision to reintegrate the talented midfielder, as Dorrans has scored twice in his last four Premier League outings.
His wonder goal against City may have been in vain, but he’s a very healthy price to add to his recent flurry at home to West Ham.
