Bournemouth to join Brighton at the top of the League One

| 15.02.2011

With Brighton not in action, Bournemouth have the chance to move joint top of the League One standings with a victory at struggling Bristol Rovers and 1/1 looks a great price that this win will be secured.

Bournemouth have won four of their last five League One games and have taken maximum points in both of their last two on the road.

In comparison, Bristol Rovers have slumped to the foot of the table after losing all of their last five league games.

They will rapidly need to end this sequence if they want to avoid relegation and an improvement in home form will especially help in this quest.

Bristol Rovers are 11/4 to beat Bournemouth, who have only won four of their away League One encounters this season.

Charlton are one team that have been in fine form on their travels, as they are unbeaten in their last eight away games.

They travel to Hartlepool next in League One and are 6/4 to land the spoils to solidify their position in the play-off positions.

Hartlepool have been largely inconsistent of late, but have won three of their last five home games.

It is 7/4 in the League One betting odds that Hartlepool beat Charlton, with the draw priced at 23/10.

Elsewhere in League One, Notts County have the opportunity to give themselves some breathing space from the relegation places with a home win over Colchester.

Paul Ince’s team have been solid at Meadow Lane this season and they would be comfortable in mid-table rather than battling relegation if they anyway resembled this form on their travels.

Therefore, it may be fortunate that they are at home next and they are 11/10 to beat Colchester.

The visitors are 5/2 to leave with maximum points and extend Notts County’s winless league run to six games.

A £25 stake on Bournemouth beating Bristol Rovers 3-1 would return £400. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
