Sheffield United to win at Cardiff – 13/10

Sheffield United need a re-think after Tuesday night’s home loss to Rotherham.

Paul Heckingbottom admitted his side didn’t play with the same pace and energy they normally do, but it should only take a couple of subtle tweaks to put that right.

Brighton loanee Reda Khadra has perhaps earnt a start, potentially coming in for John Fleck to facilitate a shift from 3-5-1-1 to 3-4-2-1, with more in the final third to occupy their opponents.

Defeat to their South Yorkshire neighbours came as something of a shock for a side that had just put four goals past Burnley, arguably the Championship’s stand-out side, in Saturday lunchtime’s 5-2 victory.

We know what the Blades are capable of, and against a Cardiff side unlikely to make huge strides under Mark Hudson, who has been given the job until the end of the season, they should bounce back.

Swansea to win at Huddersfield – 13/10

Swansea boss Russ Martin praised his players for their recovery from a slow start at Birmingham, where they fell behind early on to Scott Hogan’s goal, before Oli Ntcham and Matt Grimes provided the response.

Ultimately, Troy Deeney’s leveller forced the Swans to settle for a point as set piece issues proved their undoing, but a lot of positives can be taken from the way they moved the ball and some of the individual performances.

Matt Grimes has been outstanding for the South Wales club this season and the midfielder should dictate play, while Olivier Ntcham is a real threat – his form has earnt him a World Cup spot with Cameroon.

If Grimes and Ntcham once again play as they are capable of, Swansea should show their superiority against bottom-of-the-league Huddersfield – although Mark Fotheringham’s side did win at QPR last time out thanks to a Josh Ruffels brace.

Sheffield Wednesday to win at Accrington Stanley – 8/13

Sheffield Wednesday exited the EFL Cup in midweek at the hands of Southampton, so it’s back to domestic matters for Darren Moore.

The Owls did themselves proud against Premier League opposition and gave a great account of themselves but just fell short.

A lot of the talk around Wednesday’s midfield is often centred on Barry Bannan, who is a class above this level, but Tyreeq Bakinson proved against the Saints he’s capable of running games with his tenacity, strength and confidence in possession.

Bannan and Bakinson should run the show against Accrington Stanley, who have been hit badly by injuries this season, especially up top, where Matt Lowe, Korede Adedoyin, Joe Hardy, Alhagi Touray Sisay and Josh Woods have all been absent through injury – although Adedoyin and Sisay featured in midweek for the Under-23s.

Ipswich to beat Cheltenham – 2/7

Cheltenham head to Portman Road off the back of one of the most embarrassing FA Cup results in their history, losing 2-1 to seventh-tier Alvechurch.

In one sense, Wade Elliott is still doing a decent job at Whaddon Road because his side are four points above the relegation zone – staying up would be a success – and it’s not as if the victories they’ve gained have all been smash-and-grab jobs.

The Robins deserved to beat Cambridge, Shrewsbury, Bolton and Morecambe, but the argument against Elliott would be that they’ve had two or three complete no-shows in the league and a couple of significant disappointments in the cup.

Heading to Suffolk without Ryan Jackson, Caleb Taylor, Taylor Perry or Alfie May – all of whom being among the better players in the squad – it looks like an incredibly difficult assignment for Town.

Ipswich have scored 10 goals in their last three games in all competitions and have excellent strength in depth: if there’s such a thing as a home banker, this is it.

Stevenage to beat Hartlepool – 8/15

Stevenage suffered FA Cup heartache last weekend, losing on penalties to League One Charlton, but it was an excellent performance from Steve Evans’ side.

Boro had the better of the first half and forced Jojo Wollacott into a string of saves, and if they can replicate those levels against Hartlepool, they will wear the favourites tag well against the League Two strugglers.

The midfield blend of Terence Vancooten’s ball-playing, Jake Taylor’s destruction and Arthur Read’s energetic creativity can be a real strength for the Hertfordshire outfit.

Their visitors would be delighted with a point, as Keith Curle’s side hope to steadily climb the table, but they’ll need goalkeeper Ben Killip to be on top of his game.
