With nine games on Saturday, there’s plenty of opportunities for fans to have a flutter on the Sky Bet Championship with 888 Sport.
Wolves come into their game with Burton Albion following two wins of equal importance. A 2-1 win at Anfield against Liverpool on Saturday was followed up on Tuesday night by a huge 3-1 win away at high-flying Barnsley. A win for Wolves at struggling Burton Albion stands at a tempting 11/9. Central defender Richard Stearman scored in Wolves’ win at Anfield and the Burton defenders will have to be on their toes at set-pieces to stop the big man grabbing himself another goal. He’s available to score anytime at 19/1.
Elsewhere the team who Wolves beat in midweek will be keen to bounce back with three points at home to Simon Grayson’s Preston. It’s a tough game to call but Barnsley appear good value at 9/5, with a draw at 11/5. Adam Armstrong has looked dangerous for the Reds recently and at 11/2 to score first looks good value.
Newcastle conceded late on to draw against QPR on Wednesday night and Derby County will travel to St James’ Park hopeful of snatching something. Both teams certainly know where the net is and like to attack. Both teams to score is available at 21/20. Daryl Murphy started up front for the Toon in midweek and he’s available to score first on Saturday at odds of 21/5. If a Derby win is what you fancy then the tricky Tom Ince to score first in a 1-0 smash and grab for Derby is available at 40/1.
Strikers Matty Taylor and Zach Clough were two players who made the step up from League One to the Championship on deadline day, joining Bristol City and Nottingham Forest respectively.
Taylor’s new side are struggling lately but go up against the division’s bottom side in Rotherham. The new boy who swapped the blue and white half of Bristol for the red half of Bristol could well be a good tip to get his name on the score sheet on début.
As for Clough, his new side go up against Steve Bruce’s Aston Villa who lost 3-0 at Brentford in the week. With several new faces brought in during January and two wins in their last three games, Forest and their fans will fancy themselves to get something from the encounter. Youngster Clough will certainly be hungry to score his first goal for Forest if he’s called upon to play in the game.
