Championship tips for weekend games
The Championship campaign continues into an exciting matchweek 12, with the domestic table starting to take shape and the second tier sides aiming to get into a strong position.
Huddersfield Town’s superb start to the season has seen them climb to the summit of the standings, and they next face Sheffield Wednesday in Sunday’s only second division encounter.
Although there’s plenty of action taking place across Friday night and the usual jam-packed Saturday schedule, so Coral outline promising Championship tips for weekend games for punters to enjoy…
Bristol City to down Cardiff to nil
Bristol City’s recent record against Cardiff City doesn’t bode well for their latest meeting but, after a contrast in form between both teams so far this term, the visitors are more than capable of grabbing three points.
The travelling Robins currently sit in a hopeful fifth place in the table, while Cardiff lie down in the relegation zone after a dreadful run of form. With last campaign’s fixtures having failed to deliver many goals, backing a Bristol win on the road to nil at 17/5 here could prove prosperous.
Toon’s Gayle to net two or more past Brentford
Following a disappointing opening two defeats this term, Rafael Benitez’s Newcastle United have bounced back and now lost just once in 11 outings on all fronts.
Summer signing Dwight Gayle is key to their success and has flourished in front of goal, having recently hit a hat-trick against Norwich City. The in-form froward is therefore a promising 3/1 to fire in two or more strikes on his latest home appearance.
Villa to tame Wolves and both teams score
Aston Villa may have begun life in the Championship very poorly, but their fixture record against next opponents Wolves should give them a huge boost in confidence on home soil.
The Villans have incredibly lost just once in this clash since 1980, stretching back a remarkable 20 match-ups, and the hosts are a tasty 13/4 to triumph at Villa Park with both teams getting on the scoresheet this time out.
Jerome to score in Norwich victory
Reliable Norwich City frontman Cameron Jerome has been in flying form this season, dispatching five goals in 10 outings and he will aim to continue that impressive streak against Rotherham United.
Clinical Canaries attacker Jerome was on target in his last meeting with the Millers at Carrow Road and he is 6/4 to get on the scoresheet in a home success, with their opponents currently rock bottom of the Championship table.
Huddersfield to overcome Wednesday
League leaders Huddersfield take on Sheffield Wednesday in Sunday’s only Championship clash, and they will look to overturn a woeful fixture run on home turf.
The Yorkshire outfit have failed to win in five meetings with their next opponents but, after an impressive five consecutive victories at the John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield are 29/20 to make it six in a row as part of our Championship tips for weekend games.
