After starting the week with a winning accumulator on Easter Monday, we’re looking to double our delight on Saturday with another treble triumph.
We’ve picked three teams to start the month of April with a bang. With a potential payout of over £100, it has to be worth a £10 stake.
Norwich City v Newcastle United
The Premier League relegation scrap is really heating up and it looks almost certain that either Norwich or Newcastle will be playing Championship football next term. With this in mind, it doesn’t come much bigger than Saturday’s six-pointer at Carrow Road, and both teams will be desperate for the win.
Alex Neil’s hosts have done exceptionally well to drag themselves out of the bottom three with four points from the last available six. However, the international break may see them lose momentum. Meanwhile, Newcastle will be hoping to use this as a new start for improved results.
Early results under Rafa Benitez haven’t been brilliant, but the Magpies certainly put in better performances against both Leicester and Sunderland. Moreover, their players can take heart from the fact that their one big win of the season came courtesy of that huge 6-2 win over the Canaries back in October.
It will be a nervy contest and one goal could be enough to settle it. Don’t be surprised if Aleksandar Mitrovic is the man to bag it.
Rochdale v Doncaster Rovers
A winless run of 14 matches has seen Doncaster Rovers drop into the League One drop zone, with a sequence of seven straight defeats leaving Darren Ferguson’s men on the brink of relegation. Sadly for Rovers, things don’t look set to get any easier as they make the trip to Spotland.
That’s because Keith Hill’s Dale boast one of the best home form’s in the division. The hosts have registered 11 wins and 31 goals in front of their home supporters and will be looking star striker Ian Henderson to inspire another big win here, especially after they suffered defeat at Wigan on Monday night.
Doncaster have scored a fair amount of goals but they cannot defend for anything right now. They’ve shipped 33 away goals already, and that could be their downfall once more. It could essentially be the final nail in their coffin too.
A victory would revive Rochdale’s play-off ambitions, and we full expect them to get it. Home win.
Northampton Town v Notts County
Chris Wilder’s Cobblers have been sensational since the turn of the year, and promotion to League One is nearly sealed for the current leaders. If results elsewhere go their way, they could potentially clinch a top three finish with three points against struggling Notts County. Regardless of what happens in other games, we would be surprised if they don’t do their part.
Northampton have won 13 of 19 matches at the Sixfields this season, losing just three times. Meanwhile, Notts County have lost 11 of their 19 away games. When combined with recent forms, every aspect points towards a home win.
The goals of Marc Richards and co should give the hosts a fantastic opportunity of goals. With the visitors scoring just once in five matches, it would be a huge shock if they cause an upset here.
Both quality and incentive are with the hosts. That should lead to a comfortable home win. Come full-time, they might be celebrating promotion too.
