PLENTY of games to focus on tonight with some cracking promotion battles in the Championship, League One and League Two.

These clashes can go either way. Often they're cagey 1-0s but can sometimes be high-score thrillers.

The type of game I'm talking about includes West Ham v Southampton, Charlton v MK Dons, Huddersfield v Sheffield Utd and Swindon v Crawley.

You could make case for all of these games seeing both sides score and might throw on to a line.

But for my main line I'm giving them a miss and starting at crisis club Portsmouth. With the club once again facing a winding up order the players seem to be performing as if their lives depended on it.

Their 1-1 draw at Blackpool was impressive and before that they beat Peterborough 3-0 and lost 3-2 at Cardiff. You'd imagine they'll find the net at home to Ipswich but the visitors are enjoying a decent run of their own.

Ipswich's match at the weekend was abandoned but before that they'd netted eight in two games and indeed their last six have featured both teams to score.

Next look at Wycombe v Yeovil in League One. It's a match between two strugglers but both sides have goals in them. Five of Yeovil's last six have featured both teams to score while there have been 44 goals in Wycombe's 15 home matches.

Wimbledon were one of my first picks at the weekend but like so many others there game was off. Tonight they travel to Northampton, a match they should win, but they are unlikely to keep a clean sheet.

Their last six matches have produced 23 goals while Northampton's last six have totalled 19 with Torquay the only time both haven't hit the target.

I'm staying in League Two with Shrewsbury v Bristol Rovers. Shrewsbury are unbeaten at home and usually score in front of their own fans but they're going to be tested to the limit by Rovers.

Mark McGhee has led them to three wins in a row, starting at Cheltenham, another tough place to visit. Shrewsbury have conceded in three of their last four home matches and I can see them failing to again keep a clean sheet.

Complete the fivefold with a game from the Scottish Second Division. Forfar face a Dumbarton side flying after four wins in row, but only one clean sheet during that spell. In fact both have scored in five of their last six.

All 10 Second Division sides scored at the weekend with Forfar going down 4-2 at home to Arbroath. Their last seven games have produced 28 goals and another four (as long it's not 4-0 or 0-4) would do nicely.

      Lee, originally I planned to do a Scottish and English line but to pick five both teams to score out of 10 games is probably asking a bit much. In the end I wasn’t going to put any SFL games in there because I’m aware some bookies don’t price them up. However, I couldn’t resist Forfar v Dumbarton and it’s easier for someone to change a selection if it’s only one match. Elgin v Peterhead would be my second choice in the SFL and if I was to do three or four in Scotland it would be the two mentioned plus Hamilton v Morton and Brechin v Arbroath. All the Scottish games tonight are on William Hill btts coupons in their shops if anyone is struggling to find them.

      George, as you can see I’m on Barca, Blackpool and Charlton. Birmingham should be OK but Hull can match the best on their day. The one I’d worry about is Cheltenham at home to a Torquay side who have won six in a row, including three away. They beat Shrewsbury at the weekend and have also taken care of in-form Swindon during that run. Tonight I won’t be touching Cheltenham.

      Thanks, only one team in Scotland didn’t score in 90 minutes, Albion Rovers, so a good night for everyone who did the market north of the border. I liked the four I mentioned and maybe in hindsight should have put up a fivefold.
