IT'S amazing how a new manager can change things. Same players, different attitude and a whole set of new results.
No wonder clubs switch bosses so often when in the mire. One wag recently stated if teans changed their boss every week they'd win the league.
Bristol Rovers are one outfit who have benefited from a change at the top. Out went Mark McGhee as the club threatened to slide right out of the league and up stepped John Ward – and what a transformation.
Instead of fighting relegation Ward's side have a slim chance of making the play-offs and their hopes will be lifted by victory at home to a Rochdale outfit who have only scored in one of their last five games.
Rovers' have won their last three at home by 2-0, 2-0 and 3-0 and are 6-5 at Betway.
I'm not that keen on taking sides in action early but it's difficult to ignore Man City after the way Everton capitulated at home to Wigan in the FA Cup last weekend.
It was 3-0 before half-time and it stayed that way. Meanwhile, Man City were battering five past Barnsley and have won four in a row without conceding.
Carlos Tevez is bang in form with six goals in three games and City look worth taking at 1-1 with Betway.
Go up north and complete the treble with Raith Rovers against doomed Dunfermline in Division One. It's possibly the last meeting between the fierce Fife rivals after the Pars were hit by a winding-up order.
There's too much going at Dunfermline for players to be focused on the job and although Jim Jefferies' side did well to fight back to draw at Airdrie last weekend they have lost four out of five and conceded 16 goals in that spell.
Raith are a better side than the Diamonds and will be fired for what is sure to be an emotional occasion – and will be determined not to lose to their neighbours for a fourth time this season. They are 7-5 at Betway.
