Competition: League One

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 2/5 @ 888sport

Desperate to claim a League One boost in midweek, Sheffield Wednesday will make the trip to Whaddon Road on Wednesday night when they meet Cheltenham.

Starting with the hosts, while Cheltenham might have opened March in the midst of an extended wobble, Wade Elliott’s men have come roaring back in some style. Last seen putting in another eye-catching display on home soil as they claimed a 3-1 romp against Exeter, the Robins have now collected 10 points from their last four League One appearances. Although the Gloucestershire-based outfit might face a huge uphill struggle if they’re to claim a top-half finish in 2023, the one-time Bristol City coach will be excited by his side’s recent displays in the final third. Laying down a real marker on March 11th as they claimed a stunning 3-0 victory away at play-off contenders Peterborough, Cheltenham have now scored six goals in their back-to-back League One victories. Despite being tipped as a major underdog pick in midweek, some in Elliott’s camp could be smelling the chance to spring an upset.

As for the visitors, putting in what was a nightmare display away at relegation scrappers Forest Green over the weekend, Sheffield Wednesday have the feel of a squad seeking a much-needed boost. Eventually suffering a shock 1-0 loss away from Hillsborough, Darren Moore’s men have claimed just a single point from any of their last three League One appearances. Getting hit with an action-packed 4-2 loss at the hands of Barnsley on March 21st, the Owls now hold just a three-point buffer from slipping out of the automatic promotion places. Really starting to look over their shoulder, the ex-West Brom boss should have a recent headache over his side’s extended struggles on the road. Recording just a pair of victories from any of their last six League One showdowns outside of Sheffield, Moore’s men face what is a crucial battle on Wednesday night.
