League One Predictions for 12.9.

Charlton – Wigan

Charlton Athletic will be without Marshall and Lennon who continue to be long-term injury doubts. There were concerns over the fitness of Kashi and Solly who may struggle with a congested fixture list, however, they should start and Charlton Athletic will hope to name the same side once more. Ahearne-Grant missed the previous fixture through injury but will return, potentially just to the bench. They are in excellent form and will hope to sustain this form although their opponents do have excellent quality. They will hope to beat the -0.25 handicap and will play to win but may struggle to dominate. They will be prepared to go forward to score goals but once taking the lead they are likely to take fewer risks as they will not want to be exploited by their opponents. This could keep the game tight and see under 2.5 goals. Wigan Athletic have a somewhat weakened side as they will be without Dunkley and Colclough through suspension. Dunkley is a key player and will be replaced by Bruce who adds experience. Walton is also out with a broken leg and Jones filled in for him but weakens the side. Grigg will be pushing for a start after they played poorly against Shrewsbury Town. Wigan Athletic will try to win this match and could well score early and make it difficult for the opposition to dominate the game. However, they are slightly weakened and may struggle to beat the +0.25 handicap. They will be prepared to go forwards to attack and create chances. An early goal from either side could see the game open up and contain over 2.5 goals.

Prediction: Over 2.50 goals
Odds: 2.05 SBOBET

 

Bristol Rovers – Oldham

Bristol Rovers will be without Slocombe after he was sent off in the previous fixture. This could see Andre come into the side but the manager has indicated that this is not certain. Clarke and Sinclair are the only other players unavailable but this will not weaken the side too much. There is competition at right back between Partington and Leadbitter while Gaffney should retain his place. Bristol Rovers have suffered one blip against Bradford City but otherwise shown strong form. They like to go forward and attack quickly which will see a fairly open game and they will try to win the game at all times. Against a weak opponent, they could go on to win the game comfortably and beat the -0.75 handicap. There have been numerous goals in their games and they are prepared to attack throughout matches. This could see over 2.5 goals, especially if they are able to dominate. Oldham Athletic will be without Flynn, Green and Duffus. None of these players have managed to play much part this season but could all impact the starting line up. New signing Nepomuceno came into the side and Menig may now make a start in this match. They look somewhat more improved and will hope to begin to deliver greater performances. They have only managed one point so far this season and as a result, could struggle to get anything with the +0.75 handicap. They will likely hope to keep the game tight but if falling behind they may struggle to stay in touch. Oldham Athletic showed a greater goal threat in their previous match but are limited scorers otherwise, especially away from home. They would struggle to score over 2.5 goals but could enjoy an open match at times.

Prediction: Over 2.50 goals
Odds: 1.93 Pinnacle

 

AFC Wimbledon – Gillingham FC

AFC Wimbledon will be without Kennedy and Robinson who weaken the starting line up. It is hoped Oshilaja will come back to soften the blow. However, it is likely that Nightingale will continue in the defensive line. Abdou is still out suspended and Forrester may well offer a better option in midfield. However, they will still be weakened as a result. Without any of their three key central midfielders, they have suffered in the past and without Abdou they look much weaker. This will be a tight game and the inability to dominate the center of the pitch could see them lose on the -0.5 handicap line. AFC Wimbledon have struggled to score goals and looked somewhat vulnerable defensively. This looks set to continue even against weaker opponents. If they manage to win it is unlikely to be by a wide margin and this could see under 2.5 goals. Gillingham look set to be without Bingham in this fixture. He suffered a concussion in training and missed the previous fixture. He will likely miss this fixture as well which is a weakening. Hessenthaler came into replace him. They may recall Ehmer into the defensive line after a poor performance but will not miss Morris and Garmston who are out injured.Gillingham are in poor form but do have the ability to make this a competitive game against another fairly weak side. They could manage a draw if they are able to limit their opponents which could see them triumph with the +0.5 handicap. They have scored few goals but are vulnerable defensively. Limiting the opposition’s chances will likely be their priority in this fixture and this could see under 2.5 goals.

Prediction: Under 2.50 goals
Odds: 1.86 SBOBET
