Back Saturday's favfour

Sheffield United to beat Blackburn

The two sides meet at Bramall Lane on Saturday both with expectations of a top six finish or better this season. Despite being early days in the season, both these two clubs currently sit in top four Championship places and Saturday will be a true test.

Sheffield United have began the season with two wins, a draw and a defeat, most recently beating Sunderland 2-1 on Wednesday night. Blackburn, on the other hand, sit atop of the Championship with three wins and a defeat from four games.

Rovers’ 100% start was stopped last time out as they were humbled 3-0 away to Reading. We are backing Sheffield United to extend their four-game unbeaten run at home Saturday and pick up the three points.

Charlton to beat Cambridge

Our last leg of the four-fold sees Charlton host Cambridge at the Valley, with both sides having promising starts to the season. The Addicks most recently comfortably saw off Plymouth 5-1 at home on Tuesday night, while Cambridge lost 4-1 away to Portsmouth.

The U’s have lost both of their away league matches so far this season and face a Charlton side who they’ve failed to defeat away since 1991. Charlton did the double over Cambridge in this fixture last season, winning 2-0 on both occasions, and we expect that run to continue with a home win Saturday.

Peterborough to beat Lincoln

Posh host Lincoln on Saturday hoping to extend their strong start to the season and make it four wins from five games played in League One. Grant McCann’s side most recently defeated title-favourites Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 at home on Tuesday night, laying down a marker against one of their promotion rivals.

Lincoln picked up their first win of the season after three consecutive draws on Tuesday night, defeating Oxford United 2-1 away. Lincoln haven’t beaten Peterborough in their previous three attempts away from home and we see this trend continuing Saturday with the home side getting the victory.

Portsmouth to beat Bristol Rovers

Pompey currently sit third in League One after four games with a record of two wins and two draws. Opponents Bristol Rovers also place in the top half of the table at this early stage with two wins and two losses from their opening fixtures. Portsmouth blew Cambridge away midweek with three second half goals helping the Hampshire club pick up a 4-1 victory.

Rovers, on the other hand, were defeated 3-0 in an away trip to Barnsley on Tuesday night. Fratton Park has become a fortress for Danny Cowley’s side who are unbeaten in 12 at home. We are backing Portsmouth to continue their strong home form and pick up the win over Joey Barton’s side.
