£10 Shrimpers punt pays £180

Sat 18th Aug: 15.00: Southend look too big at 18/1 (Coral) to top League Two and Barnet could struggle at the other end.

Playing in a new stadium and with ex-Crawley boss Steve Evans at the helm, Rotherham are Betfred’s 7/2 favourites to top League Two, ahead of ambitious, promoted Fleetwood at 6/1 via BetVictor and relegated Chesterfield; the latter chalked up by Paddy Power at 12/1.

The Millers do indeed have a decent chance but they’re plenty short enough while it remains to be seen how the Cod Army will acclimatise to the Football League although they have attracted cash in recent weeks as their squad has started to take shape.

The Spireites are definitely set to challenge but in terms of value, Coral’s 18/1 shots Southend could be worth a modest speculation. The Shrimpers missed out on automatic promotion by a point last time around but have brought in some interesting names over the summer, taking a gamble on former favourite Fredy Eastwood, who spent a couple of months on loan at Roots Hall last season and if the Welsh rediscovers his scoring touch Paul Sturrock’s men could be a force to be reckoned with at a big price.

At 20/1 (Skybet) Bradford are another team to consider on each-way terms as they’ve done enough in the summer to suggest they can improve dramatically on last season’s disappointing showing.

Barnet avoided the drop by the skin of their teeth in May, finishing just a couple of points above Hereford and that was the third season in a row the Bees had swerved relegation on the final day. At some point their luck will surely desert them though and Mark Robson’s charges are an enticing 3/1 via Bwin to finally fall through the trapdoor.

Recommended Bets:
Southend e/w to win League Two – 18/1 (Coral)
Barnet to be relegated – 3/1 (Bwin)
