PAUL INCE makes his return to football tonight and although I don't like backing against sides with new bosses he faces a tough test at Leeds.

Former MK Dons gaffer Ince takes charge of a Blackpool side with just two wins in 10 and struggling since Michael Appleton's shock move to Blackburn.

Ince has been charged with improving fortunes and he knows the side well having watched son Tom often enough.

However, a trip to Elland Road isn't for the fainthearted these days with Leeds having won six out of seven at home. But Ince will take heart from the fact they've lost their last four but only a 1-0 defeat to Cardiff was on their own turf.

Neil Warnock's men were booed by fans after their 4-0 FA Cup exit to Man City at the weekend but that was no disgrace and he'll be looking for three points to boost their hopes of making the play-offs.

Leeds are a biggest 8-5 at BetVictor with Blackpool 11-5 with Ladbrokes and the draw 12-5 at BetVictor. And with Ince in place I reckon he'll steer his men to a point.

Since Luciano Becchio left for Norwich, Leeds' main man has been Scotland striker Ross McCormack who is 6-1 with BetVictor and Coral to score first.

The spotlight will of course be on 17-goal Ince who is 13-2 at Coral and BetVictor to keep his old man happy with the opener and 21-10 at BetVictor to net at any time.

Both teams should score in what could be an exciting Championship encounter. That pays 8-11 at Stan James and Coral.

There are two games in the Johnstone Paint Trophy, a Northern semi-final second leg between Crewe and Coventry and a Southern semi featuring Southend and Orient.

With Crewe 3-0 up that one's over so let's look at the Southend clash with the home men leading
1-0 from the first meeting at Brisbane Road.

Paul Sturrock's side are in the middle of an injury crisis with seven out and other struggling. He'll be forced to field a makeshift line-up and that could play into the hands of League One Orient who are 17-10 at bet365 and William Hill to win on the night and at least force penalties.


Leeds v Blackpool draw
(12-5, BetVictor)

Ince to score
(21-10, BetVictor)

(17-10, bet365, William Hill)

Leagues Tipped:
  1. Danny 11 years ago

    4 weirdo teams 4 fold shouldnt be to many problems @ 4/1

    Reid (Austria)
    A.E.L (Cyprus)
    Rovaniemi (Finland)

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Danny, came back from walk hoping to see 4m and it’s actually 4,000,811. At this rate 5m won’t be too far away and maybe we’ll give away a nice prize to mark the milestone. I was thinking two season tickets to see the Bankies.

    • 1plus2 11 years ago

      Does that include free Pies n Bovrils ?

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      1plus2, free pies, bovrils and cans of lager too.

    • Danny 11 years ago

      the main problem occured the team that sound like a x between a motor and keeper got beat

  2. john 11 years ago

    Danny who are that last team?

    • Danny 11 years ago

      John they just got promoted to the top flight in Finland after crusing to the 2nd division title I had them on my line everytime they were at home this league will be a tougher task for them right enough but the game today is a sorta warm up competition between the leagues teams in groups of best to worst be4 the season starts jaro struggled alot last season so that why am thinking Rovaniemi

    • john 11 years ago

      Danny do you ever follow those German leagues such as the Oberliga?

    • Danny 11 years ago

      cant say a do John lowest Ive went in Germany is 3liga and not done very good with my picks

  3. Danny 11 years ago

    thats dinomite Paul says alot for the site head and shoulders above the rest I would think. a nice 50quid free bet or summit would probably go down a bit better than the old bankies tickets wouldnt imagine too many folk would be up fur that lol Bingo might be he said he used tae watch them down kilbowie

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Danny, we’ll give punters the choice then. I know what I’d go for but then again I’m winning the junior tipster challenge v Ladbrokes at and the prize is a season ticket to the team of your choice so I won’t need one.

    • John 11 years ago

      Those smaller leagues can be good for live betting, any decent games on tomorrow?

  4. Danny 11 years ago
    • Seamus 11 years ago

      HAHA! What an absolute ars

  5. Craig (Ayr) 11 years ago

    Paul I was in coral there and they do a coupon where you need to get I think it’s 8 correct scores and someone has six up and is waiting on tonights results with the chance of a cool million quid

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Craig, that’s amazing. Hopefully I’ll get some details from Coral later and put up something on the site. Do you know what scores he has?

  6. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    Paul Season ticket of your choice? Get a Celtic one and I’ll buy you a bankies season ticket or 2.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Chris, it’s a junior football contest and the prize is a junior football season ticket. So unless Celtic get bumped down the leagues we don’t have a deal.

  7. gary callaghan 11 years ago

    aye the £50 bangers sounds alot better that the bankies tickets.
    chris u can get a season ticket 4 the tik easy m8, so y u not got one if u want one??
    anyway its all over bar the shouting!

  8. Bingo 11 years ago

    I don’t even know if you could give away 2 season tickets for the Bankies Mr F!!! As Danny says I used to go and watch them but only if Rangers were playing away. I was going to watch Yoker now and again a few years back but that’s only cause a few of my mates were playing for them at the time… Holm Park was a dive although I hear its a bit better these days. Is that where the Bankies are still playing their home games?

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Bingo, Bankies share Holm Park with Yoker now. It’s not palacious but much better than it used to be. Terracing much better now, social club’s pretty decent and pitch is one of the best in the juniors. Bankies v Auchinleck Talbot on Saturday so Holm Park should be rocking.

  9. David Morrison 11 years ago

    I had a nice quad come up last night from Bayern, Porto, Hull & Stirling Albion at 26/1. (Only a fiver on mind you) so I’ll just be dipping £20 from that for a Galatasaray/Orient double tonight.

    Tempted by adding Leeds but I have an uneasy feeling about it, anything could happen

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      David, I had three of those (not Hull) last night. I’d be on Leeds if it wasn’t for the Ince factor. Teams often raise their game for the new boss and Blackpool have got some decent players.

  10. Craig alves 11 years ago

    btts Leeds/Blackpool for me on a 5fold wi 2 games the mira but fancy btts in both CL games but don’t want to add in leeds blackpool incase they let down both lines.

    what you think of both JPT games for btts paul?? not really worh the double as dont get stake back

  11. Craig (Ayr) 11 years ago

    No they never said would be good to know though punter must know it’s still a long shot but who knows might get lucky

  12. Seamus 11 years ago


    Galatasary Leyton orient


    Galatasary win AC Barcelona BTS and Leeds Blackpool BTS

    Risky putting the Turks on two lines but just that confident, few beers tonight off for 3 now. Now hopefully sit back and watch the balance increase tonight. Good luck gents

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Craig, just in the office and been sent this by Coral. I wish him luck but really want Galatasaray to win.

      Coral’s Nicoal McGeady said: “From over 72,000 entrants one lucky punter is on the verge of scooping a whopping £1,000,000 in Coral’s Win A Million competition. To win the million pounds, the savvy punter, hailing from Wiltshire, must predict the correct scores of tonight’s two Champions League fixtures.

      “The Coral punter has already managed to predict the correct score of six Champions League clashes and if his selections for tonight prove correct he will hit the jackpot. In order for him to defy the odds, Barcelona must beat AC Milan 2-0 and Galatasaray must draw 1-1 with Schalke.

      “In a few hours’ time, one man’s life could change forever as he is on the verge of becoming a millionaire. Everybody on the Coral trading floor is literally sitting on the edge of their seats in anticipation of tonight’s clashes and if the punter’s predictions click, we will be facing one of our biggest ever pay-outs!”

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      I played that, completely free to enter, but i didn’t hit a thing ;) ;) not yet anyway till my 2 scores come in tonight ;) ;0


    • Guido 11 years ago

      What wid the return be if the punter had stuck a quid on Paul?..assuming no li?mit on payout

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Guido, I haven’t seen all the odds but you must be talking about 15,000,000-1 or something crazy.

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Take it Coral huv a max payoot Paul? Wid it be worth his while perming a whack of other “possible” scores /double them tonite get some kind return?..ya know a 3-2 and a 3-3 wid get a healthy return?..dunno if it be worth it

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Guido,, most firms have a max payout but I’ve seen cases when they settle at actual odds because it’s good publicity. But remember this is a free bet the guy placed on a promo so a bit different. I can’t see how he could cover the two correct scores but might be able to do something late on if one game is going his way and he needs just a goal in the other. Maybe if Barca are 2-0 up and Gala are leading 1-0 Coral will offer him £100k to call it quits. That way he’d win and so would we who backed the Turks.

    • Danny 11 years ago

      madgin he wis in the 90th minute 1-1 and 2-0 and milan were awarded a penalty a couldny look ( would imagine hes purchased a few bottos a bubbly the day just incase

  17. Alva 11 years ago

    Blackpool have beaten Leeds the last 3 times they have met.5 out of 6 Pools last matches have ended 2-1.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Alva, fair enough but Blackpool have a new boss tonight and that’s the key factor.

  18. Milesey 11 years ago

  27. David Morrison 11 years ago

    True Paul, gives me something to keep me interested in work anyway, think it’ll be the Barca game on the screens though.
    Best of luck to the guy for the correct scores, I bet he’s not sat down all day. Aslong as he gives me my £20 stake back if Galatasaray draw…

  28. Danny 11 years ago

  41. weordie 11 years ago

    ah damn, my coupon was looking good right until that last minute Southend goal

  42. Jonathan Grieve 11 years ago

    Paul,I think the boy waiting on the million from Coral will b feeling suicidal just now. I suggest u contact him and offer him the free bet for ‘Unluckiest line of the week’ as consolation :P Unluckiest line ever

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Jonathan, Coral have given him a consolation prize but I’m sure he rather have £1m. Watch this space. To be fair if I’d been in his position I wouldn’t have been counting my money.

  43. Dave 11 years ago

    Guido, whats the late tip? velez and?

  44. Guido 11 years ago

    haha Dave..Velez and…:-) Poor odds just on them tho…how about a treble Velez, Huachipato and Fluminense – all home wins at about 5/1?

    • Dave 11 years ago

      i dont know much about the others dude, you ? how much do you put on ? im down 150 tonight barca cost me, normally lump on then cash out but went wrong tonight :(

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Not goin nuts Dave..25 quid

  45. gunner 11 years ago

    i won had millan x1 was on it big time

  46. Dave 11 years ago

    on all 3? i only 3/1 on that at WH, who you with ? if you think its worth a punt im in ;)

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Dave, 2/7, 5/6 and 10/11 with bet 365…dunno what it wid return exactly?…4/1, 9/2? Velez should win/cant afford to fall too far behind in group already after losing last wek away, Huachipato won 1st match against Gremio away in Brazil last week and Fluminense are at home to Gremio tonite and won the Brazillian league last season..2 Brazillian teams be tough I suppose but home advantage should swing it?? Widna go nuts with the £s tho

    • Dave 11 years ago

      ok dude, i normaly go for doubles, 5 x3=15 gets 41 back. Can i do this some other perm way that you guys talk about?

  47. Badham 11 years ago

    Galatasary ruined my night. Let in a goal at the worst possible time.

  48. Guido 11 years ago

    Dave you could do 3 x £5 doubles and 1 x £5 treble, 4 bets = 20 quid. Up to you but a 2/7 on one team aint great odds if only 2 come up outa the 3 wid only get a wee bit more than half yer stake back. Dunno, depends what ya feel yerself? if all 3 came up staking £20 on the doubles trebles etc youd get about £65 quid or so back??…

    • Dave 11 years ago

      Guido, games have started now velez lead and the other team H are getting beat 0-1. i didnt get round to it, you

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Put it on for interst Dave..nuthin mental!! Fancy Metalist Kharkiv to beat Newcastle 2moro.

  49. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    Still trying to decide what to bet tomorrow. Any takers for Torres at 4/1 or Mata @ 5/1?

    • Dave 11 years ago

      Still trying to decide what to bet tomorrow. Any takers for Torres at 4/1 or Mata @ 5/1?

  50. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    With Borini injured and fellow forward Daniel Sturridge cup-tied for the last-32 game, the Reds will be reliant on Luis Suarez.

    Suarez it is then I think first goal.

    • Tommo 11 years ago

      Chris, not fancy Hulk at 9/1??

    Lazio vs Borussia Monchengladbach, Thu 18:00 BST

    Match Odds: Lazio 2.1, Gladbach 4.0, the draw 3.55

    The 3-3 draw these teams played out in the first leg was remarkable for several reasons. First was the topsy-turvy nature of the clash – Gladbach led 1-0, Lazio went 2-1 up, Gladbach dragged themselves back in front at 3-2, only for Lazio’s Libor Kozak to grab an equaliser in the fourth minute of stoppage time. The second extraordinary thing about the match was that Gladbach were awarded three penalties, two of which they converted. The third point to note is that Lazio managed to snatch a draw despite playing the last 21 minutes with ten men, after Andre Dias had been sent off.

    All of that excitement leaves Borussia Monchengladbach needing a win at the Stadio Olimpico to knock Lazio out, and I can’t see that happening. Lucien Favre’s side are strong at home, but they struggle on their travels. The Foals have won just two of their 12 away games in the Bundesliga, and although they are unbeaten away from home in the Europa League, this is by far their toughest test.

    Lazio are in poor form, having not won in five matches, but they have one of the best home records in Italy. In Serie A Vladimir Petkovic’s men have won nine out of 13 home games, and in their last two games at the Olimpico they beat Juventus in the Coppa Italia and drew 1-1 with high-flying Napoli. In the Europa League Lazio have won three out of four home games, keeping clean sheets in all three group matches. Petkovic picked a strong team in the first leg, and is expected to do so again.

    Given Lazio’s superb home record and Borussia’s inconsistency on the road, I’m very surprised to see the Lazio win priced so generously, especially as Gladbach will have to chase the game at some stage. Backing Lazio at 2.1 is great value.

    Recommended Bet

    Back Lazio to win at 2.1

    Hannover vs Anzhi Makhachkala, Thu 20:05 BST

    Match Odds: Hannover 2.44, Anzhi 3.05, the draw 3.65

    Hannover are staring down the barrel after a 3-1 reverse in Russia, but their excellent home form should give them cause to believe they can turn the tie around. In the Bundesliga Mirko Slomka’s entertainers have won seven out of 11 home games, while in the Europa League they have won four out of five and are unbeaten.

    Anzhi have been a mixed bag on the road, winning 5-0 at AZ Alkmaar in the qualifiers but losing at Liverpool and Young Boys in the group stage. With strikers like Samuel Eto’o and Lacina Traore at their disposal, Anzhi rarely fail to score. Indeed, Guus Hiddink’s men have drawn a blank just four times in 32 games this season.

    With Anzhi likely to score against a suspect Hannover defence weakened by injuries, backing Over 2.5 Goals at 1.85 seems prudent, especially as that bet has paid out in 27 of Hannover’s 36 matches this term.

    Recommended Bet

    Back Over 2.5 Goals at 1.85

    Rubin Kazan vs Atletico Madrid, Thu 17:00 BST

    Match Odds: Rubin 2.76, Atletico 2.84, the draw 3.4

    Europa League holders Atletico Madrid are in serious danger of tumbling out after last week’s shock 2-0 home defeat. Rubin scored after just six minutes, and despite having Roman Sharonov sent off on the stroke of half-time, the Russians added a second deep into stoppage-time as Atleti keeper Sergio Asenjo was punished for inexplicably going into the Rubin box for a late corner.

    That comedy goal has made Atletico’s job extremely difficult. Rubin won all three of their home games in the group stage without conceding a goal, including a 3-0 thrashing of Inter Milan. Atletico’s away form in the competition has hardly been stellar – they were beaten at both Academica and Viktoria Plzen, failing to score in both games.

    A strong Atletico side (including Radamel Falcao) couldn’t break Rubin down in the first leg, even with a man advantage, and I think they’ll encounter similar resistance in Russia. You can back Rubin Draw No Bet at 1.95, and Under 2.5 Goals also looks attractive at 1.82.
