Hart to quickly ease relegation fears at Swindon

| 03.03.2011

Paul Hart has been given the task of ensuring that Swindon are not relegated from League One this season and he can secure a vital three points from his first game in charge at home to Walsall.

Hart has been away from management since successfully steering Crystal Palace to safety on the final day of the Championship last season and Swindon fans will be happy if this feat is repeated.

Swindon’s betting odds are 1/1 to beat Walsall and a victory would enable them to leapfrog their rivals in the league standings and out of the bottom four.

Walsall are one of the most inconsistent sides in League One and therefore it is hard to predict what team will turn up.

It is 13/5 in the League One betting that Walsall win at Swindon, with the draw 5/2.

Yeovil are another team flirting with relegation and they will be keen to improve their disappointing home form when they face Huddersfield next.

Four defeats in five home games has seen Yeovil slip to within two places of the relegation zone and they are 21/10 to beat Huddersfield.

Huddersfield would have watched fellow promotion contenders Brighton, Peterborough and Charlton win at Yeovil recently and will want to follow suit.

The Terriers are 5/4 to beat Yeovil, which would extend their unbeaten league run to nine games.

Meanwhile, Peterborough have won three of their last four home games and should have too much in attack to beat Exeter.

Peterborough are 8/11 in the League One betting to beat Exeter and they have triumphed in eight of their last ten home games.

However, Exeter are unbeaten in five on their travels and are 7/2 to secure maximum points.

Four of their seven previous games have ended all square and it is 11/4 that the clash is a draw.

A £25 stake on Swindon beating Walsall 1-0 would return £150. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
