4-fold – Brighton, Sheffield Wednesday, Millwall and Colchester all to win @ 5.74/1 with Betfair
Brighton currently sit 2nd in the championship, and if they win tomorrow have a chance of going top (if they better Newcastle’s result). They’ve won their last 7 at home, not losing since Reading beat them back in September. Tomorrow they are playing an Ipswich side that are heavily reliant on their young striker on loan from Manchester United, Tom Lawrence, who has scored 3 in their last 4. Ipswich have only managed 1 other goal in those games, but with a solid defence Brighton should be able to keep the youngster out.
Sheffield Wednesday are in the acca for the exact same reason as they were in our treble last Friday. They have done well recently, even though the results alone don’t look like it when you see them out of context. In their last 6, they have won 3, drawn 1 and lost 2, however, when you realise the 2 losses have been a narrow 2-1 loss to Brighton, and to Middlesbrough in the cup, they haven’t done that bad. Wednesday are also on a good run of form at home as well, picking up 25 out of the last possible 33 points at home. Whereas Blackburn have the 3rd worst away record in the league, only managing 9 points from 14 games.
Millwall has always been known to be a difficult place to go, and this year it has been no different, with both Bournemouth and Watford finding out in the FA cup. They are unbeaten in 5 at home, and with Port Vale’s away form this run should easily be extended. Port Vale have only managed 8 points from 14 games away this season, and a change of manager hasn’t made much of a difference. They have only managed to pick up 1 win since the change, and that was against fellow strugglers Chesterfield 1-0 at home.
Colchester seem to have turned a corner since their 2-1 loss to Yeovil in mid November, losing only 1 in 12 and that was to a in form Exeter side. They’ve won 5 on the bounce at home, and go into tomorrow’s match full of confidence. In contrast, Crawley haven’t won in 4, and have only managed 1 win in 14 away from home. Having only picked up 12 points on their travels all season (16 games), they have the worst away record in League 2. As everybody knows in League 2 anybody can beat anybody, but this looks as nailed on as I’ve seen in a while.
