Reading, Nottingham Forest and Blackpool a bonanza 9/1 treble
Fancy a weekend treble? Why not back Reading, Nottingham Forest and Blackpool for wins with Coral.
Enhanced odds of 9/1 on victories for the Royals over Charlton Athletic, Nottingham Forest at home to Millwall and the Tangerines against Yeovil Town are available.
Charlton v Reading
Nigel Adkins’ outfit have lost once on their travels in 2014 and face an improving Charlton side under Jose Riga. Reading are 8/5 favourites for three points that will bolster their play-off push.
Russian striker Pavel Pogrebnyak has converted penalty kicks in each of his last two outings, so back him to score anytime at 13/8. The Royals have one of the best away records in the Championship, while the Addicks have picked up the second fewest points at home.
Nottingham Forest v Millwall
Reds target man Darius Henderson comes up against one of his former clubs here, so back him to silence the Lions’ roar by scoring anytime at 5/4. Millwall have won once away from home since September, so Forest are firm favourites for victory at an odds-on price of 8/11.
Buoyed by the news that former City Ground skipper Stuart Pearce will be coming in as manager for next season, the Reds could still make a late surge and sneak back into the top-six. They have already beaten the Lions at home this term – in the Capital One Cup.
Blackpool v Yeovil
Caretaker Tangerines boss Barry Ferguson is 23/20 to mastermind a victory over basement club Yeovil. Gary Johnson’s Glovers have won just three games on the road all season, and this is one of their longest trips away from Somerset.
Blackpool must keep better discipline than in the reverse fixture – when three players saw red under Paul Ince. Sendings off have largely ceased since he was sacked and replaced by Scotsman Ferguson.
The Tangerines have won each of their last two home games by the same scoreline of 1-0. Back them to repeat that result again here, and get odds of 13/2. They are 7/4 for a clean sheet and 13/5 for a victory to nil.
