WEEKEND PREVIEW: Tyson can deliver a knockout blow.

Byline: Mark Langdon

Cambridge v Wycombe JOHN GORMAN is turning around the mess created by former Wycombe boss Tony Adams and Wanderers are likely to get another three points at Cambridge today.

Wycombe have triumphed nine times on the road, more than any other side in the section, and the added experience of Rob Lee could see Gorman's boys get into the play-offs.

It is time to smash into Stan James's 11-8 about Wycombe winning, with hotshot Nathan Tyson set to run amok.

Cambridge look to have given up on surviving the drop. They are eight points from safety and sold class act Luke Guttridge to Southend yesterday. And they have played eight of the top 12 at home in League Two and lost the lot.

Recommendation Wycombe 4pts 11-8 (Stan James)Rochdale v Scunthorpe SCUNTHORPE coach Brian Laws said in yesterday's Racing Post his team need four more wins for automatic promotion, but they could be left needing a quartet of victories after this tough-looking trip to Rochdale.

P robably the most interesting quote from Laws was that everyone in the top three was getting twitchy and that nervousness points to a punt on Dale at 6-4.

These two were the jollies for the drop ante-post but the managers have done superb jobs, but Rochdale should be favourites.

Steve Parkin's side are in decent nick and have not lost at home since October. Grant Holt is the man who could make the difference and it is no wonder scouts from the Premiership are sniffing around the striker, who has bagged 22 goals in a fantastic campaign Recommendation Rochdale 2pts 6-4 (Skybet, Stanley & VC)Yeovil v Bury BURY are bottom of the League Two eight-match form table and Yeovil are top of the section, but the Shakers could cause the surprise of the day.

The Glovers are sure to be considered good things by most punters but there is no such thing in this division, particularly at 1-3, and Bury are worth a small punt at a huge 8-1 with Totesport.

Graham Barrow's boys have seldom done the business on the road this term, but they have beaten Swansea, Darlington and Rochdale to suggest they can upset the applecart.

Bury have been forced to sell players, yet still they have a goal threat in Chris P orter and John Fitzgerald has impressed in his loan stint from Blackburn.

Yeovil are no certainties. Recommendation Bury 1pt 8-1 (Totesport)
