Charlton can halt Plymouth’s progress


Lee Bowyer takes charge of Charlton for the first time this weekend when the Addicks face Plymouth Argyle as the race for a play-off spot in League One intensifies.

The feisty former Leeds United midfielder was named as caretaker boss on Thursday following Karl Robinson’s departure from The Valley.

Charlton have only won one of their last eight matches while the Pilgrims have recovered from a dreadful start to the campaign to become play-off contenders.

Plymouth won just one of their first 12 matches but have emerged victorious in nine of their last 12, which has catapulted them up to sixth in the table.

Bowyer can galvanise Charlton, though, and his side are good value at 57/20 to get back on the play-off trail by winning a match in which both teams score.

Also in League One, Rotherham United can beat a Southend United side at Roots Hall that are finding goals hard to come by.

The Shrimpers have scored just once in their last four games so a Rotherham victory by a one-goal margin appears to be the best value bet at 27/10.

In League Two on Sunday, relegation-threatened Chesterfield’s desperate need for points may be too much for local rivals Notts County, who still harbour automatic promotion hopes.

The Spireites have endured a dreadful campaign and are six points away from safety, but they did show in the recent victory against Swindon Town that all is not yet lost.

Chesterfield can gain revenge for their 2-0 loss at Meadow Lane in August by beating Kevin Nolan’s fourth-placed side at odds of 5/2.

Luton’s promotion hopes have stuttered recently but they should have little difficulty getting the better of rock-bottom Barnet, who have handed the managerial reins to Martin Allen for a fifth time. A 3-0 victory for the Hatters can be backed at 10/1.
