Saturday Accumulator: Southampton, Pompey and West Ham – Burnley to go overs this weekend
the Championship calendar.
By Jim Knight
After midweek multiple success in the Championship, we’re sticking with England’s second tier and backing a treble that returns a tasty 5.65.
Doncaster are in real trouble this season, their squad has been less than settled due to injury and Willie McKay’s plan to bring in troubled stars from elsewhere on short term loan agreements.
With just 13 points and having lost three of their last five Southampton will be confident of an away win over Donny. The Saints have won four of their last five and although they have stuttered on the road in recent weeks they should have enough to see off Doncaster.
Portsmouth have been exceptional at home in recent weeks winning four out of their last five and despite their financial troubles they will be confident of extending that run. Coventry are languishing in the relegation zone and have lost four of their last five matches.
The Sky Blues’ squad looks thin on the ground and they are already seven points adrift at the bottom of the table. The Pompey faithful should rally behind their team and they look a good price to see off Coventry here.
The Hammers have closed the gap on Southampton to two points but host a resurgent Burnley side who saw off Ipswich 4-0 in the week. That game extended Burnley’s run of over 2.5 goals matches to seven games.
West Ham have scored with regularity in recent weeks with at least two goals scored in each of their last four matches and they will hope to carry on that run. With both sides in the goals of late this one has the makings of a high scoring encounter to complete the treble.
