Rotherham United V Fulham
As most fans would have predicted, both Rotherham United and Fulham have endured difficult starts to the 2015/16 campaign. It might be early doors, but there’s already a strong feeling that this is a huge contest as the respective sides look to build confidence. It will be a dramatic afternoon at the New York Stadium, and we’re hoping that will lead to plenty of goals.
Quite frankly, you wouldn’t fancy either team to keep a clean sheet. The Millers have already shipped double figures this season while the Cottagers are also looking for their first win and clean sheet of the league season.
The visitors have at least scored in all four matches thus far, though, so Kit Symons men should fancy their chances against the leaky hosts. They’ll also take heart from the Capital One Cup triumph over Sheffield United in midweek. If Ross McCormack can rediscover his shooting boots, the Cottager should be just fine.
Nonetheless, there are some major defensive weaknesses for Fulham. The home side’s attack of Emanuel Ledesma and Matt Derbyshire should be excited about this prospect too. We’re backing both teams to score.

Swindon Town V Sheffield United
Two of the pre-season favourites meet in a mouth-watering League One contest at the County Ground, and from a neutral’s perspective it should be a thrilling contest between Swindon and Sheffield United. Let’s just hope it lives up to the billing.
These sides shared an unforgettable 5-5 classic in last season’s play-offs and all football fans would love to see a similar outcome here. While history is unlikely to repeat itself, there’s plenty of reason to believe that goals will be on the menu. After all, both teams are in great form and will enter this affair in equally high spirits.
Both of Swindon’s home matches have ended in BTTS winners, and Mark Cooper will be confident that the likes of Fabien Robert and Michael Smith will cause problems for the Blades – especially after the visitors shipped three against Fulham in midweek.
Nonetheless, Nigel Adkins has a very good attacking side for this standard of football, with Connor Salmon, Jose Baxter and Billy Sharp all ready to take any chances that come their way. While both teams have pretty decent defences, the attacking quality should lead to goals. Hopefully they’ll come at both ends.

AFC Wimbledon V Exeter City
After a slow start to the season on the goals front, Neil Ardley’s men have been involved in three straight BTTS winners. We’re expecting goals to be the theme of the day at Kingston Road once again on Saturday as they face off against an Exeter City side that enter this clash on the back of Tuesday’s incredible 6-3 defeat to Sunderland.
In addition to that thrilling cup encounter, the Grecians clinched a 2-1 win at Dagenham & Redbridge in their most recent away game. With Will Hoskins leading the line, Paul Tisdale’s men will certainly fancy their chances against a Dons side that is still seeking its first clean sheet since mid-April.
Nonetheless, a frontline that contains the talent of Andrew Barcham and Adebayo Akinfenwa will always carry a threat and the hosts should be confident about finding the target in front of their own fans.
Both of last season’s encounters in BTTS winners, including a 4-1 win at for the hosts here. A similar scoreline would suit us just fine.
