Chris Coleman 11/4 early favourite in next Crystal Palace manager betting

Crystal Palace
There has been more Premier League managerial changes with Sam Allardyce having told Crystal Palace that he wants to leave the club. After the former England manager had arrived at Selhurst Park securing the top flight status of the Eagles, Big Sam has walked away from the club. The reports are that he wanted some assurances from the club before he really committed his future to the Eagles, despite signing a two and a half year contract with them when he took over from Alan Pardew back on December 23rd. The issue appears to have been over transfers, with the club not giving him assurances of having the ability to strengthen the squad in the areas in which he thought was necessary. It was only recently that Allardyce was saying how much he had enjoyed his five months with the Selhurst Park club, in which he guided them to away wins over Chelsea and Liverpool, as well as securing a home success against Arsenal. Those were massively important survival points for them and his stint had given him a chance to get over his short-lived stint as England manager. There is a precedent for this as Tony Pulis walked away from Palace in 2014 after keeping them in the top flight. He wasn’t given the assurances he wanted in the transfer markets. So the next Crystal Palace manager betting market is up and running and Wales boss Chris Coleman and former Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri are the early favourites to be next in the Selhurst Park hot seat. Coleman has ties with the club, having played for them for four years back in the 1990’s, but Ranieri, of course, brings Premier League title-winning experience to the table. They are the clear early front-runners for the job, and then the market drifts heavily out to David Moyes at 9/1 and Nigel Pearson, whose name has been touted around in the next Sunderland manager betting market. Roberto Mancini and Roy Hodgson are the outside punts at 16/1 and 25/1 respectively. Ladbrokes are offering a quote of 3/1 on Allardyce heading back to Sunderland to take over from David Moyes.

Sky Bet Special Price Boost pays out £1.6million

Skybet
Did you miss out on Sky Bet’s Special Price Boost on the weekend? This weekly offer which the bookmaker runs was struck for the third time in nine days and Sunday’s big offer cost the operator a whopping £1.6million. The three selections which had been boosted on the final Premier League round of matches for the season saw an 11/2 price slapped on a Liverpool, Arsenal and West Ham treble. With the Gunners and the Reds up in their games, the treble came up thanks to the Hammers’ Andre Ayew’s strike in the 72nd minute of their game at Burnley. That secured a 2-1 win for the Irons at Turf Moor while Liverpool ran out 3-0 home winners over Middlesbrough, while ten-man Arsenal held on at home against Everton 3-1. Ultimately that win for the Gunners was in vain as they missed out on a Champions League spot for next season. So any punters who had backed the 11/2 enhanced odds (from 4/1) in the Sky Bet Price Boost ended the season on a real high. The win for punters came hot on the heels of last weekend's 8/1 success and the midweek 4/1 payout. Sky Bet’s head of public relations Sandro Di Michele said: "We’ve paid out on these Price Boosts many, many times this season and they’ve proved a real hit with punters. "There are plenty of big matches to come with the FA Cup and Champions League finals among them, so I’d suggest punters look out for more of our offers in those." Each week you can claim a free £5 bet with bookmaker SkyBet. This is because they run their great Sky Bet Club which is open to all punters. After opening an account with the bookmaker (where you can claim a free £20 bet bonus) you can go and opt into the Sky Bet Club. There, just make £25 worth of qualifying bets each week before 11.59:59 pm on Sunday evening and you will be credited with a free £5 bet to use! Just stay in the club by making the qualifying bets each week and you can keep collecting the free bets!

Paddy Power pays out to three customers on John Terry’s 26th-minute substitution

Bookmaker News
One of the big moments of the final Premier League weekend was John Terry’s 26th-minute substitution in his final league appearance for Chelsea on the weekend. The pre-planned substitution, which happened in the 26th minute to match Terry’s squad number, has seen bookmaker Paddy Power pay out to three punters on the specific time of Terry’s substitution in the match. It has been reported that Paddy Power accepted the wagers on Terry being substituted between 26:00 and 26:59 in Sunday's Premier League clash with Sunderland. Sunderland was aware of the plans, which had all been the idea of John Terry himself. Paddy Power said in a statement to Press Association Sport on Monday: "We replied to a novelty request for odds on John Terry's substitution - one of hundreds on the Chelsea game - and fair play to the three punters who were on at odds of 100-1. Two of the customers won £2,500 and £1,000 respectively while the other was a punter who attended the game and predicted the outcome, making an enquiry with Paddy Power before placing a £25 bet on the phone. The punter, who wished to remain anonymous stated’: "We thought maybe 10-1, 15-1 at most as there was a precedent set (by Drogba's substitution).” While one of the other punters said "I was surprised the odds were that high." Now the FA has set about asking betting companies involved in any payout on John Terry’s substation, for information on bets that they received for it. FA rules on match fixing state: "Fixing is arranging in advance the result or conduct of a match or competition or any event within a match or competition. "Fixing is prohibited and is treated very seriously." There has been no suspicion over John Terry, of Chelsea for the substitution, as it was just a gesture made by them to give their long-standing captain a big send off. There was a precedent for this as Chelsea literally carried Didier Drogba off the pitch in his final game for them, which was actually midway through the first half of a game against Sunderland a couple of years ago. Terry’s 26th-minute substitution was all over social media prior to the game, being forecast by the Chelsea fanzine editor.

Ryan Giggs 12/1 in next Sunderland manager betting

Ryan Giggs (Manchester United)
It was a pretty quick turnaround from David Moyes saying that he was going to stay committed to Sunderland, before announcing on Monday this week that he has resigned. Sunderland's decade-long stay in the Premier League came to an end under his reign this season, their relegation being confirmed with a loss against Bournemouth in April. At a club meeting on Monday, Moyes announced his decision to step down after Sunderland had finished bottom of the pile with just the six wins landed in the season. So this is another blight on his track record since leaving Everton. He was sacked at Old Trafford after taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson, then had a short stint at Real Sociedad in Spain which didn't go well at all, and now he has a relegation black mark against his name. To put his demise into perspective, he would still have two years left on his contract with Manchester United when he took over there. But regardless now, he is out of the door and Ryan Giggs was placed as an early contender to take over on Wearside, trading at 12/1 with online betting site Bet365. Former Sunderland striker Kevin Phillips has been well backed early on in the market at 5/2 while Nigel Pearson and Aitor Karanka have been touted around at 7/1. Former Swansea boss Garry Monk may have some appeal for the club though because he is a man who has experience in the Sky Bet Championship and who almost guided Leeds into the playoffs this season. Monk came in strong in the opening Next Sunderland Manager betting market at around 6/1 but has drifted in places to 10/1, with Alan Pardew a shortening 10/1 punt. This is a big time for Sunderland, who saw their rivals Newcastle bounce straight back up to the top flight his season after relegation. Will they be able to get the right man for the job to achieve the same? Striker Jermain Defoe, who scored 52% of the club’s goals in the Premier League this season looks set to head to the south coast to join Bournemouth on a free transfer.

Next Sunderland manager Betting odds

Kevin Phillips 5/2, Aitor Karanka 7/1, Nigel Pearson 7/1, Ryan Giggs 12/1, Garry Monk 10/1, Alan Pardew 14/1, Kevin Ball 16/1, Derek Mcinnes 15/1, Ally McCoist 16/1, Claudio Ranieri 16/1, bar 20/1.

Liverpool v Middlesbrough Predictions & Betting Odds – 21st May 2017

Liverpool
Liverpool v Middlesbrough Betting Preview - Premier League 21st May 3.00pm The job for Liverpool is simple enough on Sunday at Anfield. They just go out and win their game and they will be guaranteed a top four finish which means UEFA Champions League football next season for them. They can be still caught by Arsenal if they fail to win this game, so they have to put in a good shift. A home game against a Middlesbrough side who have little away form for the season and who are already relegated, shouldn’t pose them too much of a problem in getting the job done. You can earn a free £5 bet each at William Hill each and every week. Just place a minimum of £20 or more on football accumulators with four or more selections and you will claim your free £5 bet back. This offer does apply to select leagues and markets and qualifying competitions include all English and Scottish football leagues and cup as well as the major European leagues and the Champions and Europa Leagues.

Liverpool v Middlesbrough Betting Tips

Liverpool couldn’t have asked for a much easier game on the final day of the season than the one that they are going to be playing. The Reds have to take a win to guarantee that they will be in the Champions League next season. Liverpool have gone W2 D1 L1 in their last four games, and they have failed to win any of their last three on home soil now (D2 L1). So that home form has been a surprise from them, but punters will expect them to come good in this one. They have to leave it all out there. Overall, Liverpool have a good W11 D5 L2 record on home soil this season in the Premier League and they took a comfortable 3-0 win at the Riverside against Boro earlier in the season. 67% of Liverpool’s home games this season have seen at least three goals and over 2.5 goals at William Hill is a quote of 3/5. Liverpool were rampant in a 4-0 win at West Ham last weekend to boost their confidence and Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino are around the 6/5 mark in the anytime goalscorer market, with Philippe Coutinho at 11/8. Liverpool have won eight of their 10 Premier League final day games at Anfield (D2), scoring 27 goals. Boro have lost five of their last six top-flight away trips on the final day (D1), although they did record a final day victory on Merseyside in the 99-00 season, beating Everton 2-0. Boro have nothing to play for at all in this one and pride alone isn’t likely to get them points on the board. Away from home in the Premier League this season, Middlesbrough have gone W1 D7 L10 out on the road and currently, they are riding a rough six-match losing streak away from the Riverside. Boro have failed to score in eight of their last ten away games as well now, so a Liverpool to win to nil wager at William Hill is a quote of 8/13 which will have some big appeal. In the William Hill Correct Score market a Liverpool 3-0 victory comes in at a price of 11/2, with a 2-0 result trading at 9/2. Boro are winless in their last eighteen away games in the top flight and although they have lost their last four Premier League trips to Anfield.

Liverpool v Middlesbrough Betting Odds

Liverpool 1/6, Draw 13/2, Middlesbrough 14/1

Liverpool v Middlesbrough Predictions

Liverpool home win: It’s hard to imagine that Liverpool are going to slip up in this one at Anfield on Sunday. Boro have nothing to play for and the Reds can secure themselves Champions League football with a comfortable win, probably to nil as well.

Arsenal v Everton Predictions & Betting Odds – 21st May 2017

Arsenal
Arsenal v Everton Betting Preview - Premier League 21st May 3.00pm The set up for Arsenal is simple on the final day of the season. Win. Realistically that is the only way that they are going to be getting a top four finish but there is still only a remote chance of that. They basically have to win and hope that either Man City or Liverpool fail to win their final games. The Gunners really have to go out and target goals in this one because this could all come down to goal difference somewhere down the line. So it’s not just win, but win big. That’s the target. William Hill’s Super Sub offer is a great way to cover your anytime goalscorer wager on a match. This offer only applies to selected live matches and if the player you have backed in the anytime goalscorer market is substituted and has not scored, then the bet rolls over onto the player who has come on to replace him. If that replacement player scores in the match then you will get paid out at the original price on your initial selection! This is a tremendous promotion from the bookmaker and when you open an account with them you can earn a £20 free bet as a welcome bonus from the bookmaker! Arsenal v Everton 2017 Infographic

Arsenal v Everton Betting Tips

Arsenal now that their chances of Champions League football remain remote, but there is a small window for them to creep through. They will need to target a win, and a good win at that in this one and even then it may not be enough if both Liverpool and Man City win their games on Sunday. If that happens, Arsenal won’t be in the Champions League next term. The Gunners have gathered themselves well enough lately though having put together a four-match winning streak in the league, collecting a clean sheet in three of those. Arsenal to win to nil at William Hill is a price of 8/5 in this one. The Gunners have won their last four league games at the Emirates and are unbeaten in their last six at home in the league (W5 D1). So they have form and they will have some revenge on their mind after losing 2-1 at Goodison Park earlier this season. Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 20 Premier League home games against Everton (W16 D4); their longest ever unbeaten streak against a side in the competition. Alexis Sanchez, who scored a brace against Sunderland in midweek is 20/21 anytime goalscorer favourite with Olivier Giroud at 5/6. Everton’s Romelu Lukaku is an 8/5 quote to net at the Emirates. After beating the Gunners in the reverse fixture this season; the Toffees are looking to do the league double over Arsenal for the first time since the 1985-86 season. While they have been a good home side this season, the Toffees, in contrast, have been poor away from Goodison Park with just a W4 D6 L8 record away from home in the top flight. They have struggled for goals as well lately with only one scored in their last four league matches now (W1 D1 L2). So they have gone off the boil just a bit in a disappointing end of season-run in and they are winless on the road since a victory out at Crystal Palace on January 21st (D4 L3). They will finish the season in seventh place and will have UEFA Europa League action next season. Everton have lost their last three games at the Emirates, but have scored in three of their last four visits there and both teams to score at William Hill is a quote of 19/20.

Arsenal v Everton Betting Odds

Arsenal 4/9, Draw 7/2, Everton 11/2

Arsenal v Everton Predictions

Arsenal home win: The Gunners are value to go and get the win that they need to put themselves in with a shot of a top four finish. They need luck elsewhere for that to happen, but they just have to focus on themselves. Everton haven’t been great on the road and have already booked a Europa League place. Arsenal to win.

Watford v Manchester City Predictions & Betting Odds – 21st May 2017

Watford
Watford v Manchester City Betting Preview - Premier League 21st May 3.00pm A win for Manchester City at Vicarage Road on the final day of the season will see them secure a top three finish which puts them into the UEFA Champions League next season, which has been the ultimate goal for them since failing to get into the title race. There is a chance that they could be overhauled by both Liverpool and Arsenal if they fail to get their win, but the Hornets have slumped badly to a five-match losing streak at the moment and may not offer up too much opposition for the Citizens. William Hill’s Super Sub offer is a great way to cover your anytime goalscorer wager on a match. This offer only applies to selected live matches and if the player you have backed in the anytime goalscorer market is substituted and has not scored, then the bet rolls over onto the player who has come on to replace him. If that replacement player scores in the match then you will get paid out at the original price on your initial selection! This is a tremendous promotion from William Hill and when you open an account with them you can earn a £20 free bet as a welcome bonus from the bookmaker!

Watford v Manchester City Betting Tips

Manchester City needs one last big effort to land three points and that will guarantee them the prize of playing Champions League football next season. That is something of a victory for them this season under Pep Guardiola. City have found some form lately having won their last three league games in a row, with ten goals netted in that sequence. They are on a seven-match unbeaten streak of league form now (W5 D2), so are ticking over nicely, but they have won just one of their last four away from home though in a W1 D2 L1 record. So that does raise a little question mark, but City have collected four clean sheets in their last six league games and Man City to win to nil at William Hill is a quote of 7/5. The Citizens have scored 2+ goals in six of the last nine league clashes between the two sides, including exactly two goals in each of the last three. A Manchester City 2-0 correct score at William Hill is trading at a price of 13/2 and up in the anytime goalscorer market, golden boy Gabriel Jesus is at 10/11 with Sergio Aguero at 4/5. Earlier in the season when the two sides met, City took a 2-0 home win over the Hornets. City have gone W11 D2 L5 away from home this season. Watford have failed to beat Manchester City in their last seven league encounters (D2 L5), losing each of the previous three Premier League contests. They are well out of form at the moment and in midweek, Walter Mazzarri said that he will be leaving the club in the summer, so the search for a new manager is on, with Claudio Ranieri the early favourite. Watford are on a five-match losing streak in the Premier League at the moment, but gave a good account themselves in a 3-2 loss at Chelsea in midweek, albeit against a much-changed Blues side. The Hornets have put up a decent W3 L1 record in their last four games at Vicarage Road, but telling perhaps that loss was against top four side Liverpool in their last game at Vicarage Road. Both teams to score at William Hill is a 10/11 price but the Hornets have failed to score in five of their last seven games. Watford’s overall home record this season reads W8 D4 L6.

Watford v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 2/5, Draw 7/2, Watford 13/2

Watford v Manchester City Predictions

Man City away win: The Citizens have to pull out a win in this one to avoid any drama on the final day and they have found their scoring touch lately and should be able to get past Watford who can’t find a way to win at the moment. City by a margin of a couple of goals looks value.

Chelsea v Sunderland Predictions & Betting Odds – 21st May 2017

Chelsea
Chelsea v Sunderland Betting Preview - Premier League 21st May 3.00pm Chelsea sent out a much-changed side in a midweek win over Watford at Stamford Bridge. The victory kept their great stretch of form going though and they will celebrate the end of the season with the trophy at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. It will be bittersweet though because it will also be a farewell party for John Terry in Premier League action for the club as well. The relegated Sunderland are just going to be there to make up the numbers and aren’t likely to spoil the party. Over at Betfair, you can take some control of your sports accumulators with the Acca Edge product that they have. Just build yourself a qualifying accumulator with them and then you can add the Acca Edge to it. This means then that for a slight reduction in odds on the bet, you will have insurance on it, so if just one leg of the wager lets you down, you will get your lost stake refunded as cash from them. Go and register an account with online betting site Betfair and earn £30 worth of free bets as a welcome bonus from them.

Chelsea v Sunderland Betting Tips

Chelsea will be having a party on Sunday, regardless of the result in his match. They will be getting their hands on the trophy and they will be celebrating the final league game in a Chelsea shirt for John Terry too. Chelsea are on a five-match winning streak in the Premier League at the moment, keeping a clean sheet in three of those. Chelsea to win to nil at Betfair is a price of 4/7. The Blues won 1-0 at Sunderland earlier in the camping, but a Chelsea 2-0 correct score at Betfair is trading at a quote of 9/2, the shortest priced option in the market. Antonio Conte fielded an understrength side in their match against Watford in the week and Michy Batshuayi is an 8/11 poke in the anytime goalscorer market to continue his scoring streak, with Diego Costa at 8/15. John Terry is 5/2 to net in his last league game for the Blues. Chelsea are on a two-match winning streak at home against the Black Cats, and the Blues have won 16 of their 18 Premier League home games this season. Over 2.5 goals at Betfair is a price of 8/13. Chelsea have won 20 of their last 24 Premier League games against Sunderland (D1 L3), although two of those losses have come in the last six contests. There has been at least three goals in each of the last four between these at Stamford Bridge and Sunderland have netted in each of their last four visits to Stamford Bridge and both teams to score at Sky Bet is a quote of 5/4. Chelsea have scored at least three goals in four of their last five league matches now as well, so there should be goals. The Black Cats were awful in a home defeat against Swansea last weekend and while they offered up some resistance at Arsenal in midweek, they ultimately slumped again to another 2-0 loss. Sunderland's away record this season in the top flight reads W3 D1 L14 and they won’t have a lot to put into this game. Sunderland have scored in just one of their last six away games and in four of their last five home and away in the league. It’s likely Jermain Defoe will be playing his last game for them and he is a price of 15/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. The Black Cats have lost a total of 22 Premier League games against the Blues; only Manchester United have defeated them more times (23).

Chelsea v Sunderland Betting Odds

Chelsea 1/7, Draw 13/2, Sunderland 16/1

Chelsea v Sunderland Predictions

Chelsea home win: Worth backing the Blues to take the win but a flutter on both teams to score will have some appeal because Chelsea won’t be trying that hard to win the game. As routine as you like for the Blues, on an afternoon which form them, is really just all about what happens after the final whistle.

Burnley v West Ham Predictions & Betting Odds – 21st May 2017

Burnley
Burnley v West Ham Betting Preview - Premier League 21st May 3.00pm The Hammer's still have a shot at top ten finish for the season which would be a pretty good return from them after the struggles that they have had. Burnley have had a great season at Turf Moor in the top flight and will like to finish off on Sunday with a bang. But West Ham have been running in some decent form this season and while there is nothing riding on this game, it could be pretty entertaining. Online betting site Coral offers a Bet & Get Club for their customers. Each week from Monday through Thursday, if you make the qualifying stake amount of £25 across any sport in their sportsbook, then on Friday you will claim a free £5 bet back to use that weekend! You can opt into this great promotion each and every week and start amassing those free bets just from your regular betting! The offer is open to new and existing customers. Register an account with online betting site Coral and also enjoy £20 worth of free bets as well from them!

Burnley v West Ham Betting Tips

Burnley have done ever so well at home in the Premier League this season, with a tremendous W10 D3 L5 record at Turf Moor. They have only won one of their last five on home soil though in a W1 D2 L2 record but there have been some really tough games in that sequence for them. Burnley suffered a narrow 1-0 loss out at West Ham earlier in the season and in the Coral correct score market a Burnley 1-0 score to make amends for that loss, is an 8/1 price. Burnley have survived on their home form and there’s no reason why they can’t sign off with style. The Clarets have taken just the one win in their last four at home against West Ham though. The Clarets have actually won just two of their last 14 league contests against West Ham (D3 L9), losing each of their last three. So the head to head isn’t on their side and both teams to score at Coral is a price of 3/4. Sam Vokes, who netted a brace in their last home game is a price of 7/4 in the anytime goalscorer market, with teammate Andre Gray running at 7/5. The Hammers have suffered a loss in their last game of the season in each of their last three Premier League campaigns, with each match coming away from home and the Hammers just scoring once. They were awful last weekend in a home loss against Liverpool, going down by a 4-0 scoreline. They have been poor away from home all season in the top flight, and have gone winless in their last six out on the road (D3 L3). That is a sequence which included easy-looking games out at Bournemouth, Hull, Sunderland and Stoke. West Ham have only posted a W4 D5 L9 record on the road all season in the top flight and they have failed to score in three of their last four games in the top flight and in just one of their last three away from home. Burnley to win to nil at Coral on the back of that is trading at a price of 3/1. The Hammers have Manuel Lanzini at 11/4 in the anytime goalscorer market for this one. Goals may be at a premium and under 2.5 goals in the match is a price of 5/6.

Burnley v West Ham Betting Odds

Burnley 13/10, Draw 12/5, West Ham 2/1

Burnley v West Ham Predictions

Burnley home win: It’s been such a fantastic season for Burnley on home soil that they can be backed to go and land a win in this one to sign off with. The Hammers don’t have much away form, so the Clarets can strike.

Southampton v Stoke Predictions & Betting Odds – 21st May 2017

Southampton
Southampton v Stoke Betting Preview - Premier League 21st May 3.00pm A game with nothing at stake and between two sides who haven’t exactly hit very high standards this season. The Saints played out a midweek 0-0 draw with Manchester United at home, but they will face a Stoke side who have been pretty poor on the road all season in the top flight. It may be a struggle to see goals at St Mary's on Sunday. One of the top football betting products around is Bet365’s 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance which they offer on all matches listed in their sportsbook. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet. This applies to all matches in their sportsbook. Register an account with the award winning Bet365 and earn a 100% matched deposit bonus from them and enjoy other top features like each-way goalscorer odds, live streams and cash out options.

Southampton v Stoke Betting Tips

The Saints have produced a W1 D3 L2 record over their last six games which isn’t a great return from them at all really. They have been somewhat disappointing on home soil across the course of the season this term in the top flight, having only gone with a W6 D6 L6 record at St Mary's heading into the final day of the season. They are on a four-match winless streak at home now (D2 L2) and they have won just one their last seven on home turf (W1 D3 L3). So they are hit and miss really and they have had a lot of trouble recently putting the ball in the back of the net. They have scored in just one of their last five Premier League games. Under 2.5 goals at Bet365 is trading at a price of 19/20 which looks big value for punters. The Saints and the Potters have met nine times in the Premier League; with them both winning two apiece and drawing the other five. In the anytime goalscorer market, Manolo Gabbiadini is a 5/4 favourite, with Charlie Austin, Jay Rodriguez and Shane Long at around 11/8. The end of the season can’t come quickly enough for the Potters who have lost ten of their last 18 away games in the Premier League. They have won just one of their last ten games home and away (D3 L6) and the end of the season can’t come quickly enough for them. Stoke have not picked up an away win since a 3-1 win up at Sunderland on January 14th (D2 L5) and so they can’t be backed with a great deal of confidence at all in this one. The Potters though did win this corresponding fixture last season though 1-0 and each of the last nine victories which have been posted in meetings between these two have been by a one-goal margin only. A Southampton one goal winning margin at Bet365 is a price of 13/5 while in the Bet365 correct score market a Southampton 1-0 is going to have some appeal at 7/1. For the Potters, Saido Berahino is an 11/4 anytime goalscorer option.

Southampton v Stoke Betting Odds

Southampton 8/11, Draw 11/4, Stoke 7/2

Southampton v Stoke Predictions

Southampton home win: The Saints will just have a little more appeal for punters than a Stoke side who have picked up one win in their last ten. The Saints aren’t a lot better but can convert three points on home soil on Sunday.
