The 2014/15 football season is really starting to take shape and this Saturday’s action should offer yet more thrilling encounters.
We’re backing these three teams to all pick up vital victories with this tasty treble, which pays out at over 20/1. Not bad for three selections.
Crystal Palace V Leicester City
Having stunned Manchester United with that incredible 5-3 turnaround last Sunday, Nigel Pearson’s Foxes head to Selhurst Park with high hopes of securing a third straight Premier League victory,
The new boys have adapted to life in the top flight superbly and sit proudly in seventh despite playing Everton, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United within the first six weeks of the campaign.
Crystal Palace have actually enjoyed a decent start to Neil Warnock’s second stint in charge, picking up five points from the first three games. However, losing to Newcastle United in extra-time on Wednesday night will leave the Eagles somewhat drained, both physically and mentally, and that could be a key facet in deciding the outcome of this one.
Leicester have already proven that they are capable of competing at this level and we expect them to underline that once more.
Charlton Athletic V Middlesbrough
Charlton and Middlesbrough have been two of the Championship’s surprise packages this seasons and both will be pleased with their current top 10 positions. Whilst Boro enter the weekend slightly above their London opponents, we’re backing the Addicks to make use of their home advantage by picking up a vital three points.
Bob Peeters’ men are unbeaten at the Valley this season and will be looking to extend that good form by taking advantage of a Boro side who played 120 minutes before losing that record-breaking shootout to Liverpool. That, combined with the long trip to London, could take it out on the visitors and leave Charlton with a much greater chance of success.
Boro do boast a good record at the Valley, winning their last three visits, but this will undoubtedly be a difficult game for the Riversiders and it will be interesting to see how they react after Tuesday night’s heartache.
The visitors will put up a strong fight but Charlton are a very good side also and the circumstances could swing this one in their favour. With the added incentive of being able to leapfrog their opponents into the play-offs at stake, the home side will be ready to perform.
At odds of 27/10, they’ve got to be included.
Burton Albion V Cheltenham
Back-to-back league defeats has seen high-flying Burton Albion slip to second in the League Two table but Gary Rowett’s men can be confident of finding a return to winning ways against an equally out-of-form Cheltenham.
The Brewers might have lost a couple fo away games but they retain their 100% home record in the league and will be looking to extend that at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday. They did fall to Championship side Brighton on Wednesday night but that shouldn’t count for too much as they prepare to face the Robins.
Cheltenham themselves are on a winless streak of four League Two matches and it is worth noting that Mark Yates’ side have also scored just one goal in that period. Meanwhile, victories in the corresponding fixture in each of the past two seasons will also give Burton a real lift ahead of this contest.
It could be a nervy affair but the home side should prevail.
