You should all know by now that I like little more than cashing in on upward momentum…
The premise couldn’t be simpler – spot a horse, player or team in form and back them!
That’s exactly what we did with Novak Djokovic and, having reached the semi finals of the French Open at a relative stroll, our 9/5 shot is now odds on to get the job done.
Today, I want to back two teams to continue their upward momentum in the Football League…
Leeds United and AFC Wimbledon.
The former are now just one step away from a return to Premier League football and should be backed for promotion from the Championship at 11/2 with or Sky Bet…
And the latter have soared into League Two and should be supported in their bid for back to back promotions at 5/1 with Coral.

You can’t keep a bad dog down
I’m loathe to call Leeds a ‘good’ dog but in this case the old adage has held firm – Leeds are on the up.
Let’s face it, we’ve all seen it coming (even if we choose to look the other way at times) and, seven years after their relegation from the top flight, the Elland Road outfit are poised for a comeback.
The fact is, Leeds are simply too big a club to remain in the lower leagues for long and ever since their lowest point (administration and relegation to League One in 2007), it’s been a case of when rather than if.
Well, I think that ‘when’ may just be 2012.
They have one of the league’s best managers in Simon Grayson, they have a strong squad and they just missed out on the play offs in their first season back in the Championship.
And with attendances averaging over 27,000 and a proven, if slightly mental owner in ‘cuddly’ Ken Bates, they have everything in place to build on last season’s success.
11/2 for promotion is a crazy price when you consider that West Ham (a club on the verge of total meltdown) are as short as 7/4 and it should be snapped up today.
A phoenix from the flames
While Leeds’ revival always looked inevitable, the story of Wimbledon is a true phoenix from the flames tale.
When their club was effectively stolen from them to become the MK Dons in 2002, the Wimbledon fans didn’t take it lying down, instead forming a new team by the name of AFC Wimbledon.
Just like the original Dons, AFC have climbed the league pyramid at a remarkable pace, taking just nine years to get back into the football league proper and they’re not finished yet.
It may seem surprising, given the sharp distinction between League Two and the Conference but newly promoted sides actually have an excellent record in English football’s fourth tier.
Just this season, Stevenage (the previous year’s Conference champions), won promotion from League Two, while Exeter City also won back to back promotions between 2007 and 2009.
Like Leeds, AFC Wimbledon have a strong support and with a couple of very handy players on their books, including last year’s top scorer Danny Kedwell, they’ll fancy their chances of more success this term.
Coral’s offer of 5/1 is more than fair and if you’re feeling fruity you could even combine the bet in a double with our Leeds selection for a potential mega money payout.
Back Leeds to be promoted from the Championship at 11/2 with or Sky Bet…
Back AFC Wimbledon to be promoted from League Two at 5/1 with Coral…
And have a cheeky half point double on both with Coral at combined odds of 35/1.
