Tips: Hodges v Iron Bru

We are delighted to announce a last minute signing to the team. We welcome a resident tipster for the forthcoming season who has been there and done it. He’s played in the Premier League, tried his hand at management and scored one of the best FA Cup goals ever (Yes…  we are still trying to locate the evidence!).

Iron Legend and wing wizard Lee Hodges! He scored screamers for fun, but can he pick out a couple of winners for our readers? Lee will compete with us over the course of the season to see who can deliver the best tips.

Each week we will give you three teams each, for scoring purposes 1pt will go on each, with 1pt on the treble.

Picks for Weekend 09/08/14

Lee plays it safe early doors and opts for three home bankers. Derby against newly promoted Rotherham, Middlesborough over a new look Birmingham team including former Iron winger Mark Duffy and big spending Forest against Blackpool (have they got enough players yet?).

Middlesborough v Birmingham- Middlesborough (5/6)
Nottingham Forest v Blackpool (1/3)

Treble Odds 2.6 picks

We look a great price at Swindon and it’s too good to be ignored. Luton will be buzzing after their promotion back to the Football League and will want to start with a bang, whilst Wimbledon should have enough at home against Shrewsbury to complete a tasty 20/1 treble!
