League One Round-Up: 16/02/2019

Southend United vs Portsmouth

Portsmouth looks to shake off their recent poor form this weekend when they travel to the Roots Hall Stadium to face Southend United. The hosts head into this match in 14th place and much like their upcoming opponents are in need of three points, as after their recent 3-0 loss to Doncaster Rovers marked the fourth game they have gone without a win. Portsmouth had found themselves topping the League One table, but have fallen down into third place after going five games without a win in the league. Pompey’s latest fixture saw them go up against Plymouth Argyle who they drew 1-1 with. Bet365 has Southend to win at 3/1, while SkyBet has their opponents priced at 11/10.

Fleetwood Town vs Luton Town

Luton Town looks to continue their reign at the top of the league table by picking up three points this Saturday at Fleetwood Town’s Highbury Stadium. The hosts will be no easy opponents with them heading into this fixture having won their last two games against Charlton Athletic and Bradford City. Luton Town have won their last four games on the bounce and remain unbeaten in the league in their last twelve games, following their recent 3-0 win over Wycombe Wanderers.

Shrewsbury Town vs Burton Albion

Shrewsbury Town return to their New Meadow Stadium this weekend, where they will go up against Burton Albion for matchday 32 of League One. The Shrews have had little to cheer about this season and in their current form will be lucky to achieve anything more than a point on Saturday. Shrewsbury have now gone eight games in the league without a win following their 1-1 draw with Bristol Rovers. Burton arrives in much better form and will be aiming to secure their 12th win of the season. Burton are unbeaten in their last four league games and managed to secure three points in their last fixture against AFC Wimbledon. The Shrews can be backed with Betway at 6/4, while SkyBet has their opponents at 9/5.

Barnsley vs Wycombe Wanderers

Barnsley look to continue their chase on the league leaders this weekend with a win over Wycombe Wanderers at the Oakwell Stadium. The hosts are in great form this season and with them just six points behind Luton, they have a serious chance of pushing for the title by the end of the season. Barnsley are unbeaten in their last eleven league games and have secured eight wins over the course of those games. Wycombe sit in tenth place and head into this match having suffered a 3-0 defeat to Luton Town in their previous game. Bet365 has the hosts to win priced at 1/2 and their opponents at 6/1.

Oxford United vs Peterborough

Oxford United have a tough game on their hands this weekend when they welcome Peterborough to their Kassam Stadium. The U’s are having a tough season and it is hard to see them leaving their ground with anything to show for their efforts on Saturday. Oxford are unbeaten in their last four games, but their last three have all ended in draws. Darren Ferguson will be expecting three points from his men as they look to push into the top six which they currently sit four points adrift from. The Posh latest fixture saw them lose 3-1 to Doncaster Rovers. Despite their poor form this season, Oxford are favourites to take the ‘W’ with odds of 11/10 with SkyBet. Peterborough sit at 14/5 with Bet365.

Charlton Athletic vs Blackpool

One League fixture that will be a tough one to call will take place at the Valley Stadium as Blackpool and Charlton Athletic go head-to-head. The hosts sit three places their opponents in fifth place and will be keen to secure the win with just six points keeping them inside the top six. Charlton picked up a 1-1 draw against Southend United in their previous game which marked the third game they have gone without a win. Blackpool sit eight points outside of the top six which Terry McPhillips will want to reduce this weekend and they arrive in good form to do so. Following their 1-1 draw with Sunderland, Blackpool are now unbeaten in their last six games. Bet365 has the hosts to win priced at 17/20 and their opponents at 3/1.

With the two sides above them in the league within three points, Mark Robins will be keen to secure the full three points. The Saddlers have not had much luck in recent games with them without a win in their last four games which have all ended in defeat. Betway has Coventry to win at 19/20, while SkyBet has Walsall priced at 17/20.

Bradford City vs Plymouth Argyle

Plymouth Argyle should be able to continue their impressive run this weekend when they travel to the Valley Parade Stadium to face a struggling Bradford City. The hosts are in serious danger of facing relegation by the end of the season with them currently sat down in 23rd, however, the six teams that sit above them are all within three points leaving everything to play for. City’s last match had them lose 1-0 to Fleetwood Town. The Pilgrims continue their surge up the table with each passing week and currently sit in 15th, which has been a result of them losing just one of their last eight games. Bradford have odds of 23/20 with Bet365, whereas Plymouth sit at 23/10 with Betway.
