Our League One Tips for Gameweek 11 - 01/10/21

Wimbledon v Burton: Draw

A mid-table clash takes place at 3pm this weekend in League One as Burton Albion's woes continue, just as Wimbledon look to finally pick up some momentum in the third tier and push towards the top half of the table.

The Dons are struggling for any sort of form right now and with18 goals conceded and just 16 let in, it's tough to see how they get a result at the moment. On the other hand, they have won three of their 10 games thus far, but they are winless in their last four and have conceded a whopping 12 in their last five games alone.

Burton aren't exactly in sensational form themselves, but with four wins, three draws and three defeats, they still remain just two points off the top six. Nevertheless, they and Wimbledon struggle for consistency early on and we believe this results in a draw.

Portsmouth v Sunderland: Sunderland to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1

The biggest game in League One this weekend takes place in the form of two former Premier League sides as Portsmouth welcome Sunderland to Fratton Park on Saturday.

The Black Cats are one of the most in-form sides in the EFL so far this season as the North East outfit sit top of the table in League One with only nine games, which means they have a further game in hand over much of the division.

We have seen this before, but for a change, it does look as if Sunderland have found some form under Lee Johnson, who has got the Stadium of Light faithful dreaming of promotion after so long in League One now.

Portsmouth, on the other hand, continue to struggle in the third tier and do not look like getting back into the Championship anytime soon. Pompey sit with 12 points after 10 games, scoring 10 and letting in 10, which just about sums up their season so far.

With this in mind, we're backing Sunderland to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1.

Crewe v Cambridge: Crewe to win and BTTS

Crewe Alexandra will welcome Cambridge to the North West this weekend as two of League One's most out-of-form sides meet down at the bottom of the table.

The Railwaymen are languishing second from bottom in the third tier and with only one win so far, five defeats and four draws, it looks as if it may be a long season for them. However, They have managed to draw with Plymouth Argyle and Rotherham United in their last two clashes, and whilst they saw another defeat to Morecambe before this, Crewe also beat Burton, drew with Shrewsbury in the League and beat them 1-0 in the Football League Trophy too. It now means that Crewe have actually only lost one of their last six games.

Cambridge recently lost to Gillingham 2-0 last time around, who themselves are struggling, and with this in mind, plus the home crowd for Crewe, we think they'll just about edge a win.

Wednesday v Oxford: Berahino to score and win

One of the most notable transfers in League One this season was Sheffield Wednesday's acquisition of Saido Berahino. The 28-year-old was once upon a time one of the most sought-after youngsters in the Premier League, with the likes of Manchester United, Juventus and Chelsea all eyeing him up during his early teenage days at West Bromwich Albion.

The striker is now with Sheffield Wednesday and has since scored one goal in three games under Darren Moore, who coached Berahino at West Brom for a few years. Under his guidance and in divisions lower than the Premier League at the age of 28, we may end up seeing the former star bag a few goals.

Now, after netting against Shrewsbury Town on his second appearance, we think he may help a struggling Wednesday side out here and get the win.

League One Predictions



Fleetwood v Charlton: Charlton to win and BTTS

Another side that is struggling to adapt to life in another division is Charlton Athletic, who, despite dropping down from the Championship into League One, have managed to win only one game all season long and let in the third most amount of goals in the division (17).

At the same time, Fleetwood are not too far behind with 16 goals let in and only two wins early on in this League One season. We think Charlton are simply due a win here and they must win for their own sake, so we're backing them to win, but also concede.
