Derby, Nottingham Forest and Fleetwood all to win at terrific 10/1
Go with Coral for these rare chance to win big, for all of Derby County, Nottingham Forest and Fleetwood Town for victory in a 10/1 enhanced treble.
The Rams travel to Blackburn Rovers, their East Midlands rivals and table-toppers Forest host basement Championship club Fulham and League One high-fliers Fleetwood entertain Barnsley.
Blackburn v Derby
Derby go into this game on a run of three games in the Championship without defeat, including a creditable draw away to top-of-the-table Forest, and are 9/5 chances to beat Blackburn.
Chris Martin and Jamie Ward have been amongst the goals this term for the Rams, and are 5/4 and 7/4 respectively to score anytime again.
Steve McClaren’s men, who came within minutes of reaching the Premier League last term via the play-offs, face a testing week ahead of them. The former England boss is bullish, though, and said: “It’s a tough week this week with three very good teams that we are playing against. You have to have character and the grit to come here and get anything, and they have got that.”
Nottingham Forest v Fulham
This is a match of top verses bottom and, with 13 points separating the two sides after just six games, Coral have made hosts Forest 8/11 odds-on favourites for victory.
Fulham spent big this summer on a whole host of new recruits, but it seems the players are making life very difficult for Felix Magath, whose tenure at Craven Cottage looks to be coming towards its end.
New Forest star Britt Assombalonga can inflict more damage onto the German manager, after his excellent finish against Derby, and the striker is a 5/1 chance to score two or more.
Fleetwood v Barnsley
This will be the first time in history these two sides have faced each other, and it is the home team who go into this inaugural fixture as 5/4 favourites to win.
Fleetwood began the season in perfect fashion, recording three straight victories, following their promotion from League Two last term, and fins themselves up in seventh and just outside the play-off places. Barnsley, on the other hand, are down in 13th, and recently lost 5-3 at home to MK Dons.
