Championship accumulator: Wins envisaged for promotion chasers

| 01.03.2013

Three home sides and one away team make up our 10/1 weekend fourfold, as we strive to turn a profit on Championship fixtures.

As such, we choose a side bidding for automatic promotion, and two chasing play-off spots to gain crucial wins at this stage of the season, whilst we also expect Paul Ince to gain his first win in charge of Blackpool.

To kick off though, the highest positioned of our picks Hull are taken to beat Birmingham at 4/5.

Steve Bruce’s men currently sit third in the Championship, with a defeat away to Bolton last time out ending a run of three consecutive victories.

All of those triumphs came at the KC Stadium, and the Tigers will welcome the return to their own patch, where they meet opposition with just one win in their last four.

Our next choice is fifth-place Leicester, who are afforded a 6/5 price to come away from Ipswich with all three points after snapping a three-match winless run last time out.

The Foxes have won three of the past four meetings of this pair, one of which was a 6-0 mauling of the Portman Road outfit earlier this season, with the hosts also most recently losing three of their last four matches.

And we next opt for Brighton, who have quietly crept into serious play-off contention, after a four-match unbeaten run that has featured three wins.

They are 8/13 to overcome a Huddersfield side that has shipped 19 goals in their past five league games on their travels, scored just 16 away goals all season, and collected only three points on the road this calendar year.

To round off our accumulator meanwhile, we look for Blackpool to make home advantage count at 8/11, against a Bristol City side that have lost their last six away games in all competitions.

The Seasiders are unbeaten in the past four encounters of this pair, whilst they emerged 5-0 victors the last time they renewed acquaintances at Bloomfield Road.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
