We have been just 1 goal away from success in midweek and we're hoping that run doesn't extend through to the weekend. We've selected 5 matches from an extensive list of games and found some where we think both sides will get on the scoresheet.
Huddersfield v QPR
Don't be fooled by QPR's defeat in midweek in the cup to Carlisle, they played a very young and inexperienced side and deserved to be beaten by a passionate Carlisle side. QPR have had two 3-2 wins back-to-back in the league, including coming back from 2 down on one occasion. It goes to show that they still have sorted out those defensive problems that haunted them during their Premier League campaign, but they are also scoring for fun. Charlie Austin is still a QPR player and still has no trace of any knees. One thing he does possess is an eye for goal and he is deadly in the box. QPR have some good young players and Chris Ramsey has signed the right sort of personnel. Huddersfield will be looking to turn draws into wins at some point, but have an enviable strikerforce of their own which is spearheaded by Nakhi Wells.
Ipswich v Brighton
Brighton tend to score in every game this season, but usually they stop at one goal. That will be enough here, as long as they let Ipswich have a go as well. Kazenga Lua Lua has been tremendous on the wing, but the lack of goals from Sam Baldock and Chris O'Grady (the latter missing a penalty in midweek) will be a concern for Chris Hughton. Mick McCarthy has no such problems in the goalscoring department, Brett Pittman, Freddie Sears have both been netting along with David McGoldrick & Daryl Murphy. They also have the talented Ryan Fraser & Ashley Maitland Niles behind them.
Wolves v Charlton
Wolves will have been disappointed not to have found the net at the weekend in a poor, insipid display against Cardiff. They do possess plenty of firepower and they will be buoyed by their midweek victory in the cup, even though several changes were made. They come up against in-form Charlton. Guy Luzon can seemingly do no wrong at the moment, he has turned around the fortunes of Charlton and signed some magnificent players in the process. Igor Vetokele got on the scoresheet in midweek and there is plenty of competition for places up front.
Bury v Oldham
A tasty North West derby should hopefully produce goals between these two sides. The Shakers haven't exactly been struggling for excitement in front of goal. They drew 3-3 with Crewe last weekend and had lost 4-3 to Fleetwood prior to that. David Flitcroft has some defensive issues to sort out, that's clear, but he also possess Tom Pope and Danny Mayor and Leon Clarke up front who will bag goals throughout the campaign. Oldham have signed Mark Yeates from Bradford, whether he plays or not, remains to be seen, but Darren Kelly has said he wants a more expansive style of football and if he gets that, they have the dangerous Jonathon Forte waiting to knock them in.
Barnet v Cambridge
Barnet haven't adapted to life in League Two as seamlessly as they would have liked, but they have 3 points from their opening 4 games and it's something to build upon. They have scored in their last two matches, beating Northampton 2-0 and then losing to Bristol Rovers 3-1. They should be able to get a goal against Cambridge who leaked 3 last week at Crawley and drew 4-4 with Carlisle not so long ago. They clealry haven't tightened up at the back and they could be exploited. At the other end though, the U's have Barry Corr who is a terrific striker at this level and should be able to breach the Barnet defence.
