Danny Ings and Sam Vokes: Formidable up front for Burnley

Danny Ings and Sam Vokes: Formidable up front for Burnley

Our expert Craig Chisnall picks out his best bets from the Sky Bet Leagues and is keen on Danny Ings to score again.

When Burnley sold Charlie Austin to QPR on the eve of the season their fans must have been worried where the goals were going to come from.

They need not have been after Danny Ings' stunning start. Such has been the former Bournemouth striker's form, fans favourite Austin is a dim and distant memory.

Ings has fired nine goals in 11 appearances with two doubles in the last three games and has been the major factor in the Clarets' fine start to the season.

Sean Dyche's men knocked Nottingham Forest out of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday after an impressive win at Elland Road at the weekend that saw them move second in the Championship table.

Ings has been due a good run at Turf Moor after two cruel injuries since moving north and has struck up a great understanding with strike partner Sam Vokes

He must be rubbing his hands at the prospect of struggling Charlton arriving with just one win to their name this season and is as long as 5/4 to score at anytime in this game. That's a standout price given his fine form.

In League One, the change of manager at Carlisle has worked wonders with the Cumbrians, under caretaker Graham Kavanagh, registering their first wins of the season in the wake of Greg Abbott's departure.

Abbott paid the price for their woeful start, which saw them take two points from 18 and ship 15 goals, when he was sacked following the 1-0 reverse to Port Vale.

But under Abbott's former assistant they have been transformed - the ex-Republic of Ireland midfielder guiding them to wins over Sheffield United and on the road at Stevenage last weekend.

He's gone on record that he wants the job and surely that will follow if they chalk up a third victory on the trot against Notts County.

The Magpies themselves have had a struggle this term and finally got a win on the board over Tranmere last time out.

But with Kavanagh uniting his squad at Brunton Park I believe they will go a long way to landing him the job - BetVictor offer them at 8/5 to win this one.

In League Two, Rochdale have clicked into top form in recent weeks and I fancy them to make it four wins in a row against fellow high-flyers Wycombe.

I always thought with Keith Hill back at the Spotland helm they would go well but they had a sticky start with just one win in five.

Hill remained patient in his footballing philosophy and the signs are now that they will be one of the teams to challenge.

The arrival of former Brighton midfielder Gary Dicker has added real quality and striker Scott Hogan is certainly proving a shrewd acquisition from non-league Hyde.

He's already scored four goals in a Dale shirt and if he fires again this weekend they will have a great chance of moving above the Chairboys and cranking up the pressure on the top three. The home win is available at 23/20 with BetVictor and looks good value.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
