Things keep going from bad to worse for Sheffield United, whose home defeat to Preston last weekend leaves them languishing in the bottom three with just four points from eight games and no victory since the opening day of the season.
The Blades then, could probably do without a trip to high-flying Wolves, who have collected six wins in eight outings and the promotion-chasers are hard to ignore at 10/11 (bet365) to ensure there’s no immediate light at the end of the tunnel for David Weir’s beleaguered side.
Carlisle have thrived under caretaker-manager Graham Kavanagh, who has guided them to back-to-back wins since taking the reigns following the sacking of Greg Abbott.
Kavanagh looks set to strengthen the case for him to be given the role full-time too because the rejuvenated Cumbrians are likely to make it three victories on the spin as they host struggling Notts County. They’re simply huge at 13/8 via William Hill.
Double on Wolves and Carlisle – 4/1 (William Hill)
