Dagenham & Redbridge can beat Colchester after with a win at Bristol Rovers last weekend; Dagenham are good at 8/5 ().
Dagenham and Redbridge certainly aren’t going to drop into League Two without a fight and a run of two defeats in seven, while not exactly title form, has given John Still’s side renewed hopes of survival in League One.
Confidence in the Daggers camp will be on the increase too, after Saturday’s 2-0 victory at fellow strugglers Bristol Rovers and Still’s men have done enough of late to suggest that they can get the better of Colchester at Victoria Road.
The U’s are far from convincing on the road, their solitary away win in the last ten trips, coming against rock-bottom Bristol Rovers and they will also head to Dagenham without influential midfielder David Mooney, who was red-carded in the 2-0 home defeat against Southampton at the weekend. There’s little then to dissuade us from recommending a flutter on the hosts at 8/5 with .
MK Dons followed up their 1-0 victory over leaders Brighton with a 4-1 hammering of Rochdale at Spotland and Karl Robinson’s in-form side are starting to look like genuine play-off contenders. They can strengthen their position in that department too by getting the better of Charlton, the team directly below them, a result available at 23/20 (William Hill).
A run of four defeats in five matches has derailed the Addicks’ promotion push and although a home draw against Tranmere stopped the rot slightly, they’re worth opposing at a ground where the MK Dons have racked up an impressive ten victories this term.
Finally, with nine in his last ten and 25 for the season, Peterborough marksman Craig Mackail-Smith is certainly in a rich enough vein of form to warrant a modest interest at 13/8 with Boylesports to find the net at some stage for free-scoring Posh at Notts County.
