Charlton’s fourth straight victory, at Carlisle last Saturday, confirmed their promotion to the Championship and now the Addicks will be looking to clinch the League One title, which could happen this weekend if they see off struggling Wycombe and Sheffield United fail to beat MK Dons.
Chris Powell won’t want his players to take their foot off the gas and with confirmation of top spot a possibility in front of their own supporters BetVictor’s 8/13 favourites have a huge incentive to get the better of the relegation-threatened Chairboys, who are without a success in five attempts.
With three wins in four, Notts County are hitting form at the right time as they seek to book a place in the play-offs and the Magpies look like a home banker at 8/15 with Skybet to tighten their grip on a top six berth by sending Bury home from Meadow Lane empty-handed.
The Shakers of course, can also point to a trio of victories across their last four but all of those triumphs came at Gigg Lane and they are without a maximum haul on the road since Boxing Day so they look worth opposing in this one.
Tranmere have been revitalised of late, winning six of their last nine to drag themselves away from the bottom four and towards the top ten so punters would be well advised to get with in-form Rovers at evens (Ladbrokes) as they welcome Hartlepool to Prenton Park.
The visitors are already on their holidays if Tuesday’s home reverse to struggling Chesterfield is anything to go by and with just one victory in ten attempts, Neale Cooper’s charges shouldn’t trouble their buoyant hosts.
Treble on Charlton, Notts County and Tranmere – 19/5 (Coral)
