THERE will be plenty of issues to be resolved this weekend – especially in the lower leagues – where most teams have two games of the regular season to play.

In the main I’ll be focusing on sides with something to play for an avoiding ones who’d rather be on the beach.

But there are exceptions to the rule and one of those sides could be Swansea at Newcastle. A couple of weeks ago Newcastle were 50-1 to be relegated and the feeling was they needed one win for safety.

That victory hasn’t come and nor has a single point as John Carver’s men have suffered six successive defeats. They remain seven points clear of the drop zone but another defeat at home to the Swans will set alarm bells ringing especially if teams below them pick up points.

A fans’ protest didn’t help last week as Newcastle crashed 3-1 at home to Spurs and while Swansea have nothing to play for themy must be considered at 11-5 with manager Garry Monk keen to hit the 50-point mark as soon as possible.

Swansea are on the Super Single shortlist and I’d welcome comments about them and the others. These picks are based on stats and form but I’ve still to check team news.

Super Single shortlist


Newcastle v SWANSEA

STOKE v Sunderland

Brighton v WATFORD



YEOVIL v Port Vale

ROSS COUNTY v Partick Th


BERWICK v East Fife

    Surprised to not see qpr on the short list mr fixit. West ham have nothing to play for and big Sam is rumoured to be off in the summer. West ham away form is dire too 5 losses 5 draws in the league. il be backing qpr. By no means a banker but I thought I’d see them at evens rather then 2.37-2.40. Also taking qpr to score 2 or more. They have goals in them with the likes of Austin etc

      Tee, I’m tipping them to win in tomorrow’s Record but the shortlist in only 10 – they could have made it.

    Spurs are nearly 3/1 away to Southampton.
    Surely Spurs draw no bet and double chance (5/6) have to be shouts

    Should be optimistic for my side Chesterfield but the whole feel good factor has been overridden by Portsmouth’s ill timed approach for Paul Cook. Hopefully this won’t be a factor but, its certainly changed the mood around the place.

    MrF-I like the look of [email protected]/20. Although their form hasn’t been great they are in the last chance saloon now for a playoff place and only a victory will do. Reading are also in dire form and after the disappointment of Wembley will have their minds firmly on the beach!!

    Chesterfield and home to bristol city who have downed tools killy at stmirren and Swansea are all over my coupons.
