Championship Accumulator: Blackpool head 15/2 treble

| 14.12.2012

Blackpool meet Blackburn for a Lancashire derby, with the Tangerines still unbeaten under new boss Michael Appleton.

While things are looking good up for the coastal club – who are priced at 6/5 for the win – the pressure is mounting on struggling Rovers manager Henning Berg.

Blackpool to beat Blackburn @ 6/5

Blackpool are slowly regaining their confidence after fans favourite Ian Holloway left Bloomfield Road to take over at high-flying Crystal Palace.

One victory and five draws under Appleton means he is yet to taste defeat, and could be set for a second win against a Blackburn side who were booed off by their own supporters after losing 4-1 to Cardiff.

A 4-1 thrashing over Peterborough and a late equaliser against Palace will put the Tangerines in buoyant mood ahead of this local derby, who are enjoying the talents of burgeoning star Tom Ince.

However the atmosphere down the road at Ewood Park is worsening, despite the supporters appeasement after the sacking of the beleaguered Steve Kean.

But Berg’s record of one win, three draws and four defeats isn’t good enough for a club the size of Blackburn, and his team are conceding far too many goals.

Cardiff v Peterborough @ 4/11

Top-of-the-table Cardiff City should be relied upon to overcome bottom club Peterborough when they clash at the Welsh club’s fortress home ground.

The Bluebirds boasted the best home record in Europe after their defeat of Sheffield Wednesday at the Cardiff City stadium with 10 straight wins.

21 goals scored with just five conceded goes someway to explaining the strength of Malky Mackay’s team on home soil, while Peterborough are a side looking destined for the drop.

Posh are five points from safety and without a win in the Championship in eight games, with Darren Ferguson’s outfit propping up the division.

Burnley v Watford @ 9/5

Gianfranco Zola’s Watford travel north to face an inconsistent Burnley who have put together back-to-back victories just twice this season.

The Hornets are chasing the play-offs with the joint-third best away record in the league, recently beating Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday 6-1 and 4-1 respectively.

Burnley have failed to win in three outings, scoring just two goals with Sean Dyche struggling to get the best out of his Clarets squad.

Watford will be expected to offer a response after losing last time out at home to Hull, whilst their north West opponents have taken just a point from a possible six at Turf Moor.
