The Championship 5th & 6th October

Bolton have been improving slightly, they still haven’t won in their ten games this season, but they have now managed to draw three of their last four games. Their problem this weekend is that they travel to a Birmingham side who have now won three of their last four, in all competitions, scoring eleven and conceding four. With Birmingham now possessing a genuine attacking threat in Jess Lingard they should eventually break down Dougie Freedman’s ultra defensive Bolton side.

With Bolton having the 2nd worst attack in the league, failed to score in 40% of their games, one goal scored in 50% and only managing to score two on one occasion, I don’t see them scoring two against Birmingham. It’s an interesting game as both sides look to be improving but at the prices I have to side with Birmingham. I was expecting to see them at 2.30 max (43.47%) and I really can’t understand why they are only being given a 41.66% chance of winning this.

After a tough start Millwall are on the upgrade, three wins in a row before a defeat at Birmingham on Tuesday night. Bournemouth are starting to go the other way, after three defeats in their last five and with their number one and two goalkeepers ruled out I’m expecting Millwall to get some form of result here. I have Millwall finishing about ten points clear of Bournemouth and with both sides on differing trajectories and team news I’m happy to back Millwall at the prices.

With Bournemouth’s tendency to concede goals, averaging 2.20 a game at the moment I fancy Millwall to find the net a couple of times. Lewis Grabban is a man in form at the moment with six league goals this season I’m sure he’ll be eager to get one against his former employers and Millwall showed on Tuesday night that they are very capable of conceding. I was expecting to see over 2.50 goals trading sub 2.00 so at odds against I’m dutching my stakes for this match on overs as cover.

QPR are on a club record run of seven clean sheets in a row and in that time they haven’t really looked like conceding, bar the game at Yeovil they have looked at ease in this league. Bottom of the table Barnsley are the next side to try and breach this defence. Barnsley have shown that they can score goals however they have been beaten 1-0 at Bournemouth and Blackpool. For that reason I want to be with QPR continuing their run here. If Barnsley are to score then I think it’s going to have to be something spectacular like their second goal at Forest.
