Wycombe v Fulham
Meetings between the Chairboys and Cottagers are rare, but Fulham hold a 4-2 head-to-head advantage over their hosts. This explains why Symons’ side are 21/20 favourites to win in 90 minutes.
Fulham forward Matt Smith’s previous cup exploits will be well known to punters who recall his days at Oldham Athletic, not to mention his outstanding individual display while on loan at Bristol City against Gillingham. Back the target man at superb odds of 7/1 to score two or more at Adams Park.
Yeovil v QPR
When the Hoops were last in the same division are the Glovers in 2013/14, they did the double over them en route to promotion. QPR head coach Ramsey will be hoping for a similar omen here, and is odds-on at 4/5 to take his team past Yeovil in normal time.
Dutch midfield talent Tjaronn Chery had an impressive Hoops debut last time out, and was desperately unlucky not to find the net. If, involved, he is a fabulous 15/8 to score anytime here.
Millwall v Barnet
The Lions face their fellow Londoners for the first time in League Cup action here, and the fact that the visitors are just back in the Football League is telling for the odds. Millwall are firm 3/4 favourites to dispense with Barnet in 90 minutes.
Former Wales striker Steve Morison is back at The Den for another stint, and was on target on his latest bow. Odds of 9/2 say he will strike first in front of fans who regard him as a cult hero.
