Watford vs Cardiff 5.20pm
By Liam Tolan
Both teams to score odds – 6/10 William Hill
The Championship’s late kick off serves up a real treat this week with runaway league leaders Cardiff travelling to love-a-loan free-scoring Watford.
The prize for a win for the Bluebirds is an 11 point promotion cushion with a game in hand, all but securing their place in the top flight having been absent for over 50 years. Not to mention that Malky Mackay can bite the hand that used to feed him, completing the double over Watford this season.
Whilst the country braces itself for a SECOND WELSH TEAM in our top division, Watford still have an outside chance of not only getting promoted but winning the league. The Hornets would need Cardiff to drop points from a number of their remaining fixtures and themselves reproduce the form that we’ve been accustomed to this season under Gianfranco Zola.
But we don’t really care who gets promoted, we’re chasing both teams to score and all the signs point to goals in this game. The reverse fixture threw up a 2-1 win for Cardiff City and you have to go back to the 3rd October 2009 to find a Championship game between these sides that didn’t see both teams hit the back of the net.
Watford have failed to score in only 6 of their 40 league games this season, scoring and conceding in each of their last 6 league games. Cardiff have only failed to score in 4 on their 39 league games and whilst a 0-0 draw would suit them, they’ve only managed 7 clean sheets away from home, oh and just that little fact that Watford have Matěj Vydra, Championship player of the season.
Kidderminster v Lincoln City
By Peter Te Rakau
Both teams to score odds – 10/11 William Hill
Today we have a look at the conference for our BTTS selection and its 1st v 16th with both having plenty to play for.
Kidderminster come into this game in fantastic form having won 6 and drawn 1 of their last 7 games, however they have not kept one clean sheet in all this time.
Being at home doesn’t seem to make a difference as they’ve not kept a clean sheet in their last 6 home games but still managed to win 5 and get a 2-2 draw. They’ve been conceding at home to teams like 18th Tamworth, 23rd Ebbsfleet UTD and 15th Alfreton Town. In fact their only clean sheets in their last 10 home games came against lowly 22nd Barrow and dead last AFC Telford.
Considering Lincoln city have scored in 12 of their last 14 games on the road I cannot see Kidderminster starting a clean sheet run this weekend. Despite being in 16th (of 24 teams), Lincoln only lie four points above the drop zone so need to consolidate their position so goals are the order of the day to ensure survival next year.
Kidderminster lie in 1st spot by one point, however they’ve played a huge 3 games more than 2nd place Mansfield (who are top of the form table) so they cannot rest on there laurels, and will be looking to pick up maximum points in every game.
With both teams attacking and needing goals for contrasting reason’s this should be a very open affair with plenty of goals which makes us Goals Galore punters very happy indeed!
Stoke City v Aston Villa 3.00pm
By Steven Catchpole
Both teams to score odds – Evens William Hill
Stoke City are massively out of form and have scored just 4 goals in their last 5 games. With just 1 victory at the Brittania in their last 6, The Potters fortress appears to be slowly crumbling. So why am I choosing this game for both teams to score? It’s all about Aston Villa.
Villa have scored and conceded in 10 of their last 11 games away from home, the only let down being that 8-0 thumping at Stamford Bridge in the Christmas period. Since that game, Villa have scored 12 goals in 7 matches, which include a 3-3 draw at Everton, a 2-2 draw at West Brom, and their only victory of that period, a 2-1 wino over Reading.
Stoke have conceded in 8 of their last 9 at the Brittania, and with Benteke banging them in all over the place for the visitors, you have to fancy them to score at least once. This looks a great game for Goals Galore.
