Brighton lead potential away League One victory contingent

| 12.11.2010

Away wins are often harder to predict than a home victory, but some interesting fixtures in League One have thrown up some potentially profitable betting opportunities.

League leaders Brighton are one such candidates as they travel to Hartlepool, who have conceded more goals at home than anyone else in the division.

Hartlepool have let in 17 times in their seven home fixtures and have failed to win in their last five games, including a goalless draw at Victoria Park in the FA Cup first round against Vauxhall Motors.

Meanwhile, Brighton have the joint best away record for conceding goals, ironically with Hartlepool, and are 1/1 to take the three points to ensure they at worst remain eight points clear at the head of League One.

Colchester are the only team to still have an unbeaten away record in League One and this has helped them sit in third in the standings.

They travel to Swindon next and this is a fixture they have not lost in the last two League One seasons, winning three of the four meetings in this time.

Swindon will also be without influential captain Jonathan Douglas, which could make Colchester a big price to secure victory at 9/5.

Southampton began the season as one of the League One promotion favourites and have looked more like justifying this tag since appointing Nigel Adkins as their new manager.

The Saints are on a promising run of three straight league victories, but do travel to a Carlisle side that have won their last three home games in all competitions.

Southampton’s squad possesses enough quality to see off Carlisle and they have the luxury of welcoming back striker Rickie Lambert after being rested.

They are 11/8 to beat Carlisle, with a victory having the potential to lift them into the automatic promotion places for the first time this season. See the full Carlisle vs Southampton match betting odds market.
