THE final weekend of the Football League season has rolled around fast and all three local sides will be looking to sign–off in style.
Doncaster Rovers head to the Riverside looking for a rare league double, but face a tough test given hosts Middlesbrough’s current run of three straight wins, scoring nine goals in the process.
It is two months since Rovers last won in the Championship and they are 4/1 with victorchandler.com to end that run on Saturday.
Boro are 8/11 with the draw at 13/5.
Barnsley entertain Millwall who saw their play–off ambitions ended with defeat to Swansea last weekend.
The Reds are 6/5 favourites to finish the season strongly but the price is short with the draw at 12/5.
Millwall – who have lost just twice in their last 10 games – are 9/4 to pick up all three points at Oakwell.
Rotherham United entertain play off chasing Torquay, who stand at 9/2 to earn promotion from League Two this term.
The Millers are 15/8 to give Andy Scott his first win since taking charge while Torquay are 5-4 to earn the victory which will cement a top seven spot.
The draw, priced at 5/2, may also be enough for Torquay.
The pick of the racing this weekend is a mixed card at Haydock.
I felt Royal Rock was ready for a step up in distance after he got going far too late at Doncaster last month.
He has a bit to find in the 2pm with High Standing and Redford on official figures but he could cause an upset.
Bated Breath (4.10pm) has long been a favourite of mine but he had no opportunity to show his stuff when constantly denied a run on his last outing.
He is entered in next week’s Duke of York Stakes at York but this looks a more realistic and winnable opportunity.
The Swinton Hurdle is the first big race of the new jumps season and Ballybriggan (3.40pm) could easily be a winner for Yorkshire handler John Quinn.
This selection is not yet guaranteed a run, but if he sneaks in near the foot of the weights, he could reward each way support.
The Paul Nicholls-trained French import Tonic Mellysse did nothing on his British debut at Ayr but is held in high regard and considered a big danger.
