Mid-March has arrived and, with that, the football season starts to hot up. Who’s going to get promoted? Who’s facing the drop? Who will go on a momentous run which will take everyone by surprise?
The last couple of weeks have thrown up some surprising results. But let’s be honest, as people who do coupons, are we ever shocked anymore?
Anyway, hopefully Saturday is our day and this four-fold can do the business.
First up is English Championship side Rotherham..
The Millers are fighting the drop to England’s third-tier, but they have given themselves an almighty chance after three wins on the trot – including 1-0 victories over promotion-chasing Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough. They can take another top six scalp when they face Derby at home and with confidence and recent clean sheets behind them, 13/5 for the Millers to make it four wins on the bounce looks good value.
Staying with the relegation fight in England’s second-tier and we have a huge game between Fulham and Bristol City..
Both sides sit level on points with only a place between them in the league table. With Moussa Dembele and Ross McCormack leading the line, the Cottagers have arguably one of the best attacks in the division, but their problem seems to be keeping the ball out of the other end. Both sides lost last time out, but home advantage will be a big part in this one and, at 6/5, Fulham look a good bet to push towards their Championship survival for another season.
Northampton are next up in League Two..
Chris Wilder’s men have been on an incredible league run, which has seen them move 13 points clear at the top of the table and sit an incredible 19 points above fourth-placed Portsmouth outside the automatic promotion spots. An unbeaten run of 12 games has contributed to this and the Cobblers can edge towards the title with a home win over mid-table Cambridge United. The U’s have a chance of making the end-of-season play-offs, but the runaway leaders look too good at the moment at 17/20.
Last up are Inverness..
The Highlanders haven’t won in their last four league outings, but a home clash with Hamilton represents the chance to get back to winning ways. John Hughes’ men will have their eye on a top six spot and a win over Accies will move them towards that target and distance themselves from the relegation-play off spot currently occupied by Kilmarnock. Caley won the pair’s last meeting at New Douglas Park in a seven-goal thriller and, at 21/20, punters will fancy them for all three points.
The four-fold pays odds of 29.04/1 with Ladbrokes and for £5 returns £150.18
