We’re now three months into the season and the tables are starting to take shape as clubs up and down the country settle. It’s been a fascinating opening third to 2014/15 and we don’t think the drama will be drying up any time soon.
Clubs will be eager to start the month of November with a bang and that should incite a flurry of goals across England’s top divisions. We’re backing these six to all find the net in this tempting 5/1 treble at Ladbrokes.
Fingers are crossed for a huge weekend boom to kick our month off in perfect style!
Hull City V Southampton
Alongside West Ham United, Ronald Koeman’s men have easily been the Premier League’s surprise package thus far and the Saints will look to go marching on once more as they head to the KC Stadium on Saturday.
The Saints have already hit 20 league goals this season. more than every other club except Chelsea, and also enter this clash on the back of a breathtaking 3-2 Capital One Cup win at Stoke on Wednesday. Things are going particularly well for Southampton this term and they’ll be confident of picking up another three points against a side they beat in both head-to-head meetings last term.
However, Steve Bruce’s Tigers have unquestionably improved their attacking options and carry a real bite in the final third this term. Hull have scored in all six competitive matches at the KC in 2014/15, with all but one of those coming via a BTTS winner and we are confident that fans will be treated to another explosive clash against Southampton.
Both teams have enjoyed some decent results in recent weeks, that should lead to a positive approach in this intriguing showdown. Expect goals at the KC.

Leyton Orient V Coventry City
It has been a nightmarish opening third to the campaign for last season’s League one play-off finalists but they can be hopeful of picking up some much needed points as they face fellow strugglers Coventry to Brisbane Road.
With the Russell Slade shenanigans behind them, the O’s can now look to move on under new boss Mauro Milanese and three points on Saturday would see them leapfrog the Sky Blues and pull away from the dreaded relegation zone.
However, Coventry will be equally optimistic of securing a first win at this stadium in four attempts. Steven Pressley’s men will be in high spirits following last week’s 3-2 home win over high-flying Peterborough and can use that extra lift to help them in this crucial encounter.
Neither team has been particularly prolific in front of goal this term but they’ve each suffered plenty of problems at the back. The fact this is a winnable fixture for both sides should provide an extra spark and hopefully that’ll lead to an action-packed contest.

Exeter City V Luton Town
A run of seven straight victories has seen League Two newcomers Luton Town race to the summit and their ambitions of back-to-back promotions appear to be well and truly on as we enter the month of November. However, the Hatters could be in for a tough test at St James’ Park against an Exeter side that has picked up seven points from the last available nine.
The hosts aren’t the biggest scorers in the division by any means but Paul Tisdale’s men do find the net on a regular basis both home and away and can certainly cause problems for the visitors on Saturday. Despite their terrific form, it is worth noting that Luton did concede in both October away outings.
Nevertheless, there is little doubt that the Hatters will score. Only Oxford’s Danny Hylton has scored more times than Luton’s Mark Cullen in League Two this season and the in-form striker can inspire the visitors to another big result at St James’ Park.
This is the standout fixture from League Two this weekend and we don’t think the two teams will disappoint. Back both teams to score.
