Home and Away: Back Bray to spring surprise at Bohemians

20May 2013



Jonno Turner looks to build on a profitable last week which saw his selections finish 53pts in profit, with more picks in his Home and Away column...


We're off to Norway for our first pick of the week - as second-placed Rosenborg host struggling Molde at the Lerkendal Stadium.


Per Joar Hansen's side have started the campaign well, and sit within touching distance of leaders Stromsgodset - just three points behind pole position with 10 games  played.


Four unbeaten on the bounce in the Eliteserien - and 10 goals scored in that time - suggests that the hosts are more than capable of inflicting another defeat on  current top tier champions Molde, who have found things difficult so far this season, and go into this clash sitting bottom of the table.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have swept all before them in the last couple of years - but lost some influential players in the close season (Vergard Forren to  Southampton, and hotshot forward Davy Claude Angan to Hangzhou Greentown) - and they just haven't been able to get going this time around.


And the Aker Stadion side have managed just one win in the Eliteserien this campaign, and a 5-1 thrashing at Haugesund last time out will have knocked morale in the  away camp.


Rosenborg have not lost to Molde on their own patch in five outings - winning four of those - and I fancy the hosts' momentum to secure them another three points here.


Bet 1: Rosenborg (HOME)@ 1.6


Turning our attentions to goings on in Ireland now - and the League Cup, as Bohemians welcome Bray Wanderers to Dalymount Park.


Aaron Callaghan's side line up on their own patch looking out of sorts - and just one win from their last nine suggests that they run a real risk of being dragged into  the bottom two in the Premier League unless they can engineer a turnaround in fortunes sharpish.


Four losses from their last five in front of their home faithful indicates that Dalymount Park is far from a fortress this campaign, and I think that there is plenty  of value in the away win here.


Bray travel to Dublin in resurgent form following a poor start to the campaign, and Pat Devlin will be looking for his charges to make it four unbeaten - and three  wins in that time - this evening.


The Seagulls have taken maximum points from their last two away outings, and will be keen to translate that form into this cup competition - to keep dreams alive of  clinching their first silverware sinceb 1999.


The visitors will be full of confidence and momentum going into this clash, and will be desperate to maintain that, in order to kick start their season with plenty  left to play for.


Bohemians are favourites for this one, but I think that, on recent form, Bray are too big at 3.85 - and, with five goals notched in their last two on the road, if they  can score the first goal here, that will provide ample opportunity to Cash Out.


Bet 2: Bray Wanderers (AWAY) @ 3.85
