Charlton are close to clinching top spot in League One leaving Sheffield United and neighbours to fight it out for the second automatic promotion place and the in-form pair are currently matching each other blow-for-blow in the battle to go up.
The Blades are currently two points ahead of their rivals and Danny Wilson’s rampant side can maintain their advantage as they host Leyton Orient, Stan James pricing them at 2/5 to pick up a sixth straight victory.
The best bet at Bramall Lane however is Boylesports’ 3/1 for Ched Evans to break the deadlock. The United front man fired a brace in midweek and with 13 goals in his last ten outings he should have too much for a leaky O’s rearguard.
On paper, Sheffield Wednesday face a slightly tougher assignment as they head to Colchester and as the hosts have drawn ten of their 21 home fixtures, Skybet’s 5/2 for the spoils to be shared could prove popular amongst neutrals.
Nevertheless, the U’s have nothing to play for, a nine-match winless streak having put-paid to their play-off hopes and as a consequence, Dave Jones’ charges are Coral’s deserved even money favourites ahead of the Weston Homes Community Stadium contest.
