It's That Time Of The Season

Where a year of hard work can be crushed in an afternoon ; dreams of promotion denied and fear of relegation confirmed. Despair and agony. So let's see if we can make a few quid out of it.

Everton and Newcastle are worth a small interest to win at home to Birmingham and West Brom respectively. Desperation can only take you so far if you're not good enough in each penalty area, especially away from home. Passing swiftly over the dead rubbers of the Championship, I hadn't noticed how well Nottingham Forest are doing since Megson walked the plank, and they can run up another win at Hartlepool. Torquay are in the last chance saloon at home to Wrexham. And while I'm not backing it myself, I wouldn't put anyone off Chester at home to Barnet, the Bees are so poor away from fortress Underhill. And no, that isn't a deliberate reverse bok. They never work.

Summary :

Back Everton, 3 pts @ 2.34
Back Newcastle, 3 pts @ 1.87
Back Forest, 3 pts @ 2.10
Back Torquay, 3 pts @ 2.38
