Bet on Brighton to maintain League One stranglehold

| 22.03.2011

The wheels do not seem to be falling off Brighton’s surge towards the League One title and they can move one step closer to playing in the Championship next season with a home win over Notts County.

Brighton have opened up a seven-point gap at the top of League One after winning their last five games and they have three games in hand on nearest pursuers Huddersfield.

They can continue to build pressure on the chasing pack with a victory over Notts County and this result is priced at 1/2 in the League One betting.

While Brighton have been flying, Notts County have struggled for results, slipping to within three points of the relegation places after losing four of their last five fixtures.

It is 11/2 that Notts County, while the draw that would also slightly ease their relegation concerns is 3/1.

Brighton are unbeaten in their last five meetings with Notts County and have won each of the last two.

Elsewhere in League One, Southampton will be keen to remain in pole position to finish in the second automatic promotion spot with a success at Charlton.

This is another game where a form team meets opposition enduring a poor sequence of form, with Southampton winning their last four games and the hosts losing seven of their last eight.

Southampton’s betting odds are 10/11 to beat Charlton, with Chris Powell’s team 3/1 to turn the form book on its head with a victory.

A local derby also takes place in League One as Dagenham and Redbridge prepare to make the short trip to Leyton Orient.

Orient lost for the first time in 15 league games at Brentford in their latest game and are 8/11 to return to winning ways.

However, a four-game unbeaten sequence, which includes three victories, has lifted the Daggers out of the relegation places.

They would climb to their highest league position all season with a win, with Daggers 7/2 to land the spoils.

A £20 stake on Brighton beating Notts County 2-0 would return £120. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of free bets totalling up to £60.
