Will the Pilgrims be journeying all the way to the EFL Championship next May?
It’s all change at the top of the 2021/22 League One table with Plymouth Argyle taking full advantage of international week to seize control of top spot.
Can Ryan Lowe’s high-flyers make sure it’s not just a temporary stay as they travel to Oxford?
We’re back with our next set of League One predictions…
EFL League One Predictions | Weekend Games
It’s been over a decade since Plymouth last enjoyed a taste of EFL Championship football.
During that time the Pilgrims have bounced back from the pain of administration and play-off heartbreak to a position where it looks as if they could have every chance of returning to the second tier for the first time since 2010.
After a rocky return to this level last season, Ryan Lowe looks to have remedied Argyle’s major weaknesses this time around and the new leaders are now a 35/1 chance in the League One outright betting as they head to Oxford seeking to preserve their 11-game unbeaten run.
However, watch out for Wycombe, who continue to break club records under the streetwise Gareth Ainsworth.
The long-serving Chairboys boss saw his side break new ground last weekend as they made it seven straight league wins in a row on home soil for the first time in their Football League history.
Should they manage to match that form even marginally on the road, a sustained promotion bid looks likely. A trip to struggling Doncaster Rovers could be fertile territory for harvesting precious away points on Saturday afternoon.
How will Wigan and Sunderland respond after losing their stranglehold on the automatic promotion places through no fault of their own last weekend?
Both return to action with awkward away trips to Bolton and Gillingham respectively as they look to regain the initiative among the early pacesetters.
Is this the moment we finally start to see Ipswich Town and Sheffield Wednesday make a prolonged push towards the play-offs?
Two of the pre-season promotion favourites are playing catch-up on their rivals after slow starts. Both will be hoping hard-fought wins last weekend can spark a sustained revival as they make testing journeys to Cambridge Utd and AFC Wimbledon sides both capable of pulling out a surprise when the mood suits.
Steve Cotterill looks the manager under most immediate pressure as Shrewsbury Town slipped to a third straight defeat away at Ipswich last Saturday, a game that also saw the Shrews rocked by a heart scare for striker Ryan Bowman.
The Shrews will be banking on strong home form to help slowly move themselves away from League Two relegation danger, having picked up seven of their eight points this season at the New Meadow. MK Dons are the visitors to Shropshire this weekend.
Better Odds Mean Bigger Winnings.
