Perfect records to stay intact?

It can be dangerous to read too much into early season form but when it is coupled with pre season thoughts it certainly shouldn't be discounted. We're siding with three teams that have been quick out of the blocks, are professional outfits likely to have their players that few percent fitter than other teams and think that this approach can deliver some tidy profits from the midweek's football.

Charlton are one of two teams with a perfect record & are up against an average Colchester side. Colchester had a great result against Preston on the opening day but Preston were much too open & Charlton won't be so easy having only let Notts County have 2 shots on target at the weekend. Chris Powell seems to have recognised his side's weaknesses and the defence is more organised plus up front they have upgraded with the excellent, for the division he's in, Bradley Wright-Phillips. Odds of 15/8 suggest they should only be winning this game just over one in 3 times but that underestimates Charlton's strength in many areas and we feel they can contain Colchester whilst offering a potent attacking threat themselves and keep their winning record going.

Also in League One we have gone with the other side with a perfect record - Sheffield United at home to Walsall. After relegation from the Championship, the 'Blades' have won two from two without conceding a goal. Walsall have also made a good start to the season beating struggling Leyton Orient, thanks to a screamer from Adam Chambers and a draw in a ill-tempered match with Hartlepool, but we fully expect them to find the Blades a much tougher proposition. Last season Walsall had the third worst away record in the league and at a reasonable price of 3/4 - Danny Wilson's side, with a healthy competition of attacking options, should continue their flying start.

Finally we think that Cardiff will beat Championship newcomers Brighton. Cardiff are an attractive 11/10 to see off the East Sussex based club. Both clubs have a maximum six points from their opening two games. Cardiff opened with a smash and grab win against West Ham at Upton Park followed up with an impressive first half dismantling of rivals Bristol City. Malky Mackay had a big rebuilding job on his hands after 12 players left the Bluebirds in the summer but the early signs are positive for the South Wales club. Craig Conway, Don Cowie and Andrew Taylor look solid Championship players. Young Joe Mason arrived from Plymouth for £250,000. An injury to midfielder Aron Gunnarsson in the Severnside derby meant Mason was introduced and made an instant impact with his direct running from central areas. Cardiff are likely to hand Mason a start against the Seagulls should Gunnarsson not recover from his knock. Although there isn't anything between the teams in terms of points so far we think Cardiff's attacking options will prove too much for Gus Poyet's Brighton.
