MILLWALL GOOD FOR A PLAY-OFF PLACE ROTHERHAM ON THE UP
April 16th, 2016 | Ian Carnaby's Sports News
All three selections came up last week so I hope you had a profitable day.
The Premier League title will not be decided this weekend but I think it fair to say Tottenham – who looked electric in the second half against Manchester United – cannot make it unless they take more from the trip to Stoke than Leicester do at home to West Ham. This game is very hard to call and much may depend on how well Slaven Bilic has lifted the Hammers after the disappointment against United in the FA Cup.
Newcastle absolutely HAVE to beat Swansea on Saturday and I can see this being an intensely nervy 1-0 affair, after which they will be looking for Norwich’s result against Sunderland. Again, impossible to call, though Norwich always look more likely to score at home than away. No one could be confident with hard cash, though this looks a possible draw to me, with Newcastle closing the gap slightly via an edgy win.
Neil Warnock, amiable and friendly away from the heat of battle but hugely aggressive in the technical area and immediately after a match, is not everyone’s cup of tea. However, he is brilliant at turning teams around quickly and the job he has done at ROTHERHAM is extraordinary. Nottingham Forest are so disappointing at present that the home team can take another big stride towards safety in the Championship, while PRESTON also look good against MK Dons, where no one seems quite sure what has gone wrong.
The brave punt on Walsall in League One isn’t quite going to work, though they are still third. I do not make them a good bet against Southend but Millwall did us a major good turn last week and they are capable of taking all three points at a fading Coventry, However, I’m not keen on 6/4, at best, about the away team.
ROTHERHAM 20 units at 7/5 (Ladbrokes) to beat Nottm Forest
PRESTON 20 units at 17/20 (Ladbrokes) to beat MK Dons
