Sheffield United have dropped into the bottom three having taken just two points from their last seven matches and they’ve been cut to just 15/8 with William Hill for relegation as a result.

Tomorrow’s hosts Ipswich are Betdaq’s 2.0 (even money) favourites to take all three points. Micky Adams’ side are 7/2 underdogs at Ladbrokes and Victor Chandler chalk 5/2 against a draw, a wager that could attract some punters given that United shared the spoils in their last away match, at Coventry.

That one finished goalless, a result that is 10/1 (Coral) to be replicated while fans feeling optimistic enough to back the Blades can protect against the stalemate with Stan James, who offer them at 2/1 in their ‘Draw No Bet’ market.

Sheffield Wednesday’s 5-3 defeat at Peterborough resulted in the departure of manager Alan Irvine and in the early betting, Victor Chandler quote the two Garys, Megson and Johnson, at 6/4 and 9/4 respectively to take over. Caretaker duo Rob Kelly and Billy Barr are even money courtesy of Partybets to preside over a much-needed victory over MK Dons at Hillsborough.

Betfred offer 12/5 for a draw and in line with recent high-scoring Owls games, those fancying an inconclusive contest might lean towards a 2-2 scoreline, available with the same firm at 14/1.

Barnsley are chunky 6/1 outsiders with Victor Chandler to collect a maximum haul at Leicester, but a draw (16/5, 888Sport) would be a satisfactory result for Mark Robins’ troops at the Walkers Stadium. Also unfancied are Doncaster, a 10/3 chance to beat Millwall at the New Den, where Betdaq chalk up the draw at 3.5 (5/2).

Finally in League Two, at the b2net Stadium, leaders Chesterfield are 5/6 with William Hill to send Aldershot home empty-handed and Totesport make a Rotherham victory 5/4 as the Millers entertain Crewe.
