MR FIXIT'S away spending his winnings so he's asked me to have a look at this League One play-off.

It's a tough call and I reckon he's decided to put me on the spot because he can't pick a winner.

Either that or he's watching dodgy videos. I popped into his office last week and caught him on YouTube getting rather flustered.

His face went beetroot when I asked what he was watching. I expected Debbie Does Dallas or feared he had found Chunky's sex tape. That's the one where she dreams that all men are made of chocolate by the way.

In fact what Mr Fixit was watching was even more embarrassing. It was Clydebank's Goal of the Season compilation. How sad is he?

Anyway the worst part was he made me sit through highlights of last week's game with a hat-trick but some bloke called Drian or something like that.

I don't think there will be any hat-tricks at Bramall Lane tonight with the match expected to be a closely-fought affair. The first leg was 0-0 and probably worse than watching Clydebank.

It was that bad I've got to consider the fact it could be another 0-0 with no scorer paying 9-1 at the likes of bet365 and Ladbrokes. It was 2-2 in the league when the sides met a couple of weeks ago and I'm certainly looking at another draw, but a more nervy one, that pays 12-5 at bet365 and Ladbrokes.

I certainly don't anticipate an early goal and William Hill make first goal time over 31 minutes a 21-20 chance. Under 2.5 goals must have a chance at 3-4 with bet365.

The Blades are 1-2 with bet365 and BetVictor to qualify and 19-20 at BetVictor to win tonight.

But they haven't won in six since top scorer Ched Evans was jailed (and for a much worse offence than watching Clydebank videos). As well as Evans, United will be without suspended James Beattie so there may be a start for Richard Cresswell.

With little up front I can see Stevenage, who have lost just once in 17, battling to the draw and getting over the line after extra time or penalties. To win on spot-kicks you can have 10-1 on either team with William Hill so back both it you're going down that route for a 5-1 return.

For the final I'm already on Huddersfield to win at Wembley and with them leading MK Dons 2-0 before Tuesday's home leg you can still get 1-1 on the Terriers. Lump on.

    Scott, you plonker. The guy’s name is Darian MacKinnon and he’s currently junior football’s hottest property. Hit a brilliant hat-trick against Irvine Meadow and I’m hoping he guides Bankies to the Central League Cup Final at Glasgow Perthshire on Wednesday. The Bankies videos are brilliant and I’d like to thank John for the great work he does every week putting the highlights together.

    Done a double of under 2.5 goals tonight with huddersfield to win playoff after reading this piece. I think utd might sneak it tonight so went 1-0 utd and cresswell first goal, 2 singles and double.

  5. Mr Fixit 12 years ago

    Scott, you may be a plonker but your first tip is up so well done. If it stays 0-0 you may keep your job. Maybe!

  6. joe knotts 12 years ago

    Under 2.5 goals looking good. That first half was horrendous, my eyes feel violated. They could easily swap the goalkeepers for one armed midgets and it wouldnt make a difference.

  7. craig alves 12 years ago

    will the bookies pay out if it’s 0-0 on 1st gl over 31 mins

  8. joe knotts 12 years ago

  10. McGart 12 years ago

    Did u single cercle brugge paul? 3 1 up

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Yeah, as I said earlier did the single on Cercle and some btts which have all come up – Cercle, Gothenburg, Karlsruhe and Albinoffe. But annoyed I didn’t take Scott’s advice for no scorer at Sheffield Utd as it looks pretty likely. I hate watching games hoping for no goals though so did the under 2.5 instead.

  11. joe knotts 12 years ago

    Nice again tonight. Need huddersfield for double using scotts tips. Got my 1-0 utd up and cresswell wasnt on so money back for that and my cresswell 1-0 dble goes to a single :)
