IT'S that time of year when sides wobble like a jelly or like my girlfriend's rear end.

Man City have been suffering too and it will be squeaky bum time for me if my lovely partner is reading this.

Luckily she doesn't know how to switch on a computer (is fine with an iron though) so I should be okay.

Talking of wobbles, Swindon are showing signs of nerves and followed up their Johnstone Trophy cup final disappointment by failing to beat Bristol Rovers at home at the weekend.

Paolo di Canio's men travel to Barnet tonight and I have no faith in them at a biggest 8-11 (various). Swindon still lead the way in League Two but have failed to score in three of their last four games.

They struggled past Barnet in the cup semi-finals, winning 2-1 over two legs, and their opponents haven't given too much away in their last two games, losing 1-0 to Torquay and drawing 0-0 at Macclesfield.

Like Swindon, Lawrie Sanchez's men have drawn a blank in three of their last four and that suggests a cagey affair tonight. Under 2.5 goals pays 1-1 at Betfred.

If you fancy Mr Fixit's barnet (I mean Sanchez's Barnet) to take something from the game the double chance at 5-4 with Stan James could be the way to go as they are pretty big at 9-2 with BetVictor to win. Barnet draw no bet is 11-4 at Coral.

Now there were a few surprises in League One at the weekend, the main one being that Jordan Rhodes didn't score for the first time in 491 games.

The Huddersfield hitman has been told he'll have to walk home from London if he draws a blank for the second time running and that should be an incentive to get his shooting boots back on. He is tempting at 4-1 at Betfred to score first and 1-1 at Coral to net at any time.

Huddersfield don't have too much to play for these days with their chances of catching second-placed Sheffield United looking slimalthough they'll want to be in decent form going into the play-offs.

The Terriers were held 2-2 at home to Orient and face a side who have lost three of their last four. I'm slightly tempted by the 11-10 on Huddersfield to win with firms such as Ladbrokes and BetVictor.

A better bet in League One are Brentford who need a run of four or five consecutive wins to have any chance of edging into the play-offs at the expense of Carlisle or MK Dons.

The Bees claimed a vital win at MK on Saturday and should follow up by winning at home to an Oldham side who have lost their last two 1-0 to Orient and Notts County. Brentford are a biggest 10-11 at William Hill.

There is one game in the Championship and Burnley v Birmingham is a tough one to call. Burnley bounced back to form after seven without a victory with a 5-1 battering of Portsmouth at the weekend but at home they've been disappointing with Eddie Howe's men winning just six out of 19.

Birmingham got back to winning ways with a 3-1 win at Doncaster but a best 6-4 with boylesports doesn't attract. Burnley are 85-40 at BetVictor but this could be a draw. My one punt on the game will be both teams to score at 1-1 with Coral as this has occured in all four of their recent meetings.

Charlie Austin bagged a hat-trick for Burnley at Fratton Park and is 21-10 at Paddy Power to score.

(11-10, William Hill)

    Scott with comments like that your clothes will be in binbags by the time you get back lol
    but as long as you win a few golden nuggets tonight im sure she will forgive you!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Ryan, the kid’s got guts. First he picks a draw in his treble then has a little fun at the expense of his woman. That’s bravery!

      I enjoyed it too but will enjoy it more if his tips come up. If not his girlfriend and I will be waiting for him in a dark close.

  3. drew welsh 12 years ago

    He will be lucky to get in, never mind sleeping on the sofa, lol

  4. craig alves 12 years ago

    went with you here scott
    rhodes anytime
    bayern -1.5 asian handicap

    rhodes 1st gl
    bayern -3
    over 100/1

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, interesting lines. Bayern -3 is supremely optimistic and I wish you luck.

  5. craig alves 12 years ago

    very optimistic but surely worth £1, gomez and robben bring rested tho.
    my first treble was main bet but put that on just for a laugh, i’ll cetainly be laughing if it comes haha

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, anything’s worth a quid. One of my fears was Bayern would settle for what they had and two top stars are rested even though the manager said he’d play his strongest side.

  6. craig alves 12 years ago

    bayern bets in the bag now, -1.5 that is. only 1st treble possible now if rhodes gets a gl, hopefully he scores cos got other line on bit took barca -1

  7. craig alves 12 years ago

    BOOM!!! barca 1 more please.

  8. Nobby 12 years ago

    Done bayern and barca -1 each along with brentford and burnley +1. Looks like the Clarets are going to let me down

  9. craig alves 12 years ago

    good day for most i suspect with all favs winning, had to much faith in bayern and took -2 but still got 30 bak, would’ve been another 40 if they got that 3rd tho,happy days tho!!!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, got my treble, Super Single and Bonkers Bet up so pretty happy. Looks like Bayern took their foot off the gas pretty early and that was always a concern.
