Snow hits League One but change still possible at top

| 03.12.2010

Bournemouth and Sheffield Wednesday could both benefit from the recent snow as they both could move into the League One automatic promotion places.

As things stand, nine of the 12 weekend League One fixtures have fallen victim to the weather, but Bournemouth and Sheffield Wednesday are still set to play and both could make up the two points on second-placed Charlton with a win.

Bournemouth currently sit third and will be keen to improve on their distinctly average away record when travelling to Bristol Rovers.

Eddie Howe’s team have only won one of their nine away games in the league but are still 13/8 to beat Bristol Rovers.

The hosts are also 13/8 to take the three points, but they have not won in their last six League One games.

Sheffield Wednesday are just behind Bournemouth on goal difference and they also face an away trip to Swindon.

The Owls saw a six-game winning streak in all competitions end in their last away league outing at Carlisle, but are 6/4 to make amends at Swindon.

Swindon currently lie just outside the relegation places, but have lost just two of their last nine home games in all competitions.

It is 17/10 that Swindon beat Sheffield Wednesday.

The only other League One game to beat the big freeze is at Exeter, who could move closer into play-off contention with a home win over Tranmere.

Brentford are the only team in League One to leave Exeter with three points this season and it is 3/1 that Tranmere become the second.

Meanwhile, the hosts are 10/11 to secure victory and extend their unbeaten league run to five games.

Richard Logan has scored in two of Exeter’s last three league games and a £10 bet on him scoring first against Tranmere could win £50. New Ladbrokes customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
