Market: Pablo Hernandez to score anytime
Odds: 2/1 @ 888sport
Just 90 minutes away from lifting the Championship title, Leeds will welcome relegation scrappers Charlton to an empty Elland Road on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another rampant display away at Pride Park over the weekend and picking up a 3-1 win against Derby, the mood in Leeds’ camp couldn’t be any higher. Claiming a Premier League return as the Championship winners with time to spare, the Whites have continued to impress with their stellar displays in the final third. Including a 5-0 romp against Stoke at Elland Road earlier in the month, Head Coach Marcelo Bielsa will be calling on attacking talisman Pablo Hernandez to end his campaign with another flourish. Once again finding the net against the Rams last time out, the 35-year-old has recorded three goals in his last four second-tier appearances and should certainly be confident of extending on that tally in midweek.
As for the visitors, while Charlton might have managed to snatch what could be a crucial late point against Wigan over the weekend, they know that Wednesday will be an unenviable test. With only their goal difference keeping them outside the drop zone, they will also be undoubtedly monitoring how events unfold elsewhere. However, failing to build off of their back-to-back wins against QPR and Hull last month, Head Coach Lee Bowyer has seen his side record just a pair of points over their last six Championship appearances. A huge part of Charlton’s issues following on from their League One return last summer has been their continued problems away from the Valley. Recording just a pair of victories outside of South London since the end of August, it should also be highlighted that the Reds hold the third-worst away day record in the division.
Bet: Pablo Hernandez 2/1 to score anytime against Charlton in Wednesday’s Championship finale @ 888sport
