League One promotion odds – Betfair: Rooney's Derby trail favourites Ipswich and Sheffield Wed to reach Championship | The Sun

IPSWICH are favourites to clinch promotion to the Championship this coming season.

The Tractor Boys are 7/4 with Betfair to head up from League One in the 2022/23 campaign.


They lead Sheffield Wednesday and Wayne Rooney's Derby County in the market.

League One is traditionally an extremely competitive division which throws up plenty of unexpected results.

Ipswich finished last season with a bit of a whimper and ended up just inside the top half in 11th spot.

Kieran McKenna left Manchester United to lead Ipswich midway through the season.

He will call on his experience at Old Trafford – as well as his strong book of contacts – and is tipped to make a real go at winning the league.

Sheffield Wednesday are second favourites with Betfair at 9/4 to get back to the second division.

Wednesday made the play-offs last season but were dumped out by promoted Sunderland at the semi-final stage.

Rooney told supporters at the end of a catastrophic Derby season last year that he wouldn't be leaving.

The club remains in turmoil off the park with Chris Kirchner's takeover bid falling through.

They did get the boost they needed that they would be able to start the season after a loan from a local businessman interested in taking over the club.

And Wazza is backed to do well again after an almost heroic effort last year and Betfair price them third favourites at 11/4 to bounce straight back up.
