We were just a couple of goals short in midweek as 2 teams failed to find the back of the net. Now that we've seen the teams in action, we'll have another crack at it and see if it can rain goals on the 2nd week of the season.
Ispwich v Sheffield Wednesday
If there's one thing that Ipswich won't be lacking this season, it's goals. Adding to the 31 league goals of Daryl Murphy from last season, they have Brett Pittman and Freddie Sears and David McGoldrick. Ryan Fraser will also add goals and creativity to the midfield. They were 2 up aat Brentford, but they let the lead slip. That will disappoint Mick McCarthy who will want his side to bounce back at the 1st opportunity, At home, they will be on the front foot, but they face a very handy looking Sheffield Wednesday. A number of new signings including Lucas Joao who got off the mark in midweek & I'm impressed with a number of their players. Lewis McGugan brings energy to the midfield and is a decent set piece taker and there is still plenty to discover about Marco Matias and Alex Lopez. I think they can take advantage of a Tractor Boys backline without Christoph Berra.
Barnsley v Burton
It's hard to believe that Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has only lost 3 games as Burton manager. It's a terrific record and he has his first League One away game as they visit Barnsley. The Brewers beat Scunthorpe on the opening day of the season and they beat Bolton in midweek. The clean sheet against the Trotters was the icing on the cake, but I think they'll struggle to keep out Barnsley here. The Tykes will want to bounce back from a disappointing opening day defeat and Lee Johnson will have his side ready for this. It's difficult to pick a winner from these two teams, but I fancy them each to score.
Bradford v Shrewsbury
Both these sides had defensive problems last weekend as they both came unstuck. Bradford were hammered 4-1 and were on the wrong end of a Nathan Byrne masterclass! Shrewsbury conceded twice to Millwall after taking the lead and they will both want to put that right here. Shrewsbury have a threat up front with James Collins & Jean Louis Akpa Akpro whilst Bradford have the meanacing presence of James Hanson. New signing Josh Morris got off the mark at the weekend and I think both teams will find the net here.
Millwall v Coventry
Adam Armstrong was the talk of Coventry after his brace saw off Wigan on the opening day of the season. Under Tony Mowbray it seems that the Sky Blues will have a decent season, certainly much improved from last season. Millwall got an opening day victory against Shrewsbury and that will boost their confidence as they attempt to bounce back from a dismal season. Millwall have a few striking options to call upon and with Steve Morison back at the club yet again, they always carry a threat.
Morecambe v Accrington
I've been impressed with Accrington so far this season, they held Luton to a 1-1 draw and only a late deflection off the backside of Jonathon Smith prevented them from taking away all 3 points. They then held Hull to a 2-2 AET and only came undone in a penalty shootout. They have goals in them and Josh Windass and Matt Crooks have been impressive in their opening games. Morecambe didn't manage a goal on the opening day, but they stand a chance here at the Globe Arena. Accrington weren't renowned for their defending last season, if they continue in the same vein here, we could see both teams netting.
