Five Sure EFL Predictions For This Friday

Burton to win at Accrington

We’re wary of reading too much into Saturday’s 7-0 drubbing at Peterborough given the firepower Posh possess but that was a fourth defeat in five matches for injury-hit Accrington, with 17 goals conceded in that time. To make matters worse, Stanley lost Mark Hughes, Sean McConville, Ben Barclay and Rhys Fenlon to injury. Boss John Coleman said: “I’m bitterly disappointed to lose 7-0 and the pride takes a beating for that but the biggest problem is losing four more players to injury. I can’t ever remember an injury crisis like this in almost 25 years as a manager.” Burton have been one of the form teams in the division since the turn of the year and, as 7/4 underdogs, they are great value to take advantage of Accrington’s problems.

Norwich to win at Preston

Norwich’s winning run finally ended prior to the international break but a 1-1 draw with Blackburn is not an issue having won nine matches to pull eight points clear at the top of the Championship. Their next three games are all against teams in the bottom half of the table so this looks a great opportunity to close in on automatic promotion, starting at Preston. Only bottom team Wycombe have lost more games in the second tier than Preston, who sacked manager Alex Neil after losing at home to Luton last time out. Frankie McAvoy has been put in charge until the end of the season but Preston are easy to oppose.

Bolton to beat Colchester

We drop into League Two for the last of our football accumulator tips today and Bolton look a home banker against Colchester. The visitors have managed just one win in their last 22 matches and only a solid start to the season is keeping them out of the relegation zone for now. Bolton, on the other hand, are the form team in the division after a 13-match unbeaten run featuring 11 wins. That has left them only outside the top three on goal difference and their fine run should continue here.

Portsmouth to beat Rochdale

Danny and Nicky Cowley appear to have made an immediate impact at Portsmouth, who already look much improved compared to under Kenny Jackett. Back-to-back 2-1 wins against Ipswich and Shrewsbury have reignited their promotion hopes and the way they dominated possession against the latter even when down to 10 men bodes well for our football acca. The suspension of John Marquis is a blow but there is plenty of depth to the squad and they should be much too strong for bottom side Rochdale.

Sunderland to beat Oxford

Sunderland may be third in the League One table but are the 8/5 favourites in the outright betting to claim the title and few would bet against them on recent form. The Black Cats have picked up 26 points from their last 10 matches during which time they have only conceded four goals, with last weekend’s 1-0 win at Bristol Rovers featuring a fifth clean sheet in six games. Oxford have beaten Lincoln and Doncaster recently but the timing of those fixtures was in their favour and they generally have a poor record against the top teams, especially on the road.
