Saturday's enticing EFL four-fold currently sits at 14/1!
Coventry v Gillingham - League One
Coventry came from 3-1 down away at Portsmouth—while also having two men sent off in the final half-hour—to snatch a dramatic draw in the last couple of minutes, and the Sky Blues look on Cloud Nine this season, having earned eight points from their four matches thus far.
I expect them to beat a Gillingham side who have just two points from their opening three, and simply look a little short of quality.
Mark Robins’ men clearly aren’t phased about playing at St. Andrew’s, having won both matches there so far, and I’m backing them to do the business once again on Saturday.
Fleetwood v Accrington - League One
Fleetwood are winless in three matches in all competitions (after winning their opening two), but I’m confident they have what it takes to get back on track against what looks a poor Accrington outfit.
John Coleman’s men have just one point all season—conceding nine goals in their four league and cup matches—so while Fleetwood have already shown inconsistencies this season, it’ll take a big effort from Stanley to get anything on Saturday – and I don’t believe they will.
Wycombe v Southend - League One
Southend look abysmal this season, and I’m expecting their four-match losing run to extend against a Wycombe side who have thus far impressed me.
Gareth Ainsworth’s men followed-up a good win against MK Dons by securing a creditable draw at Fleetwood on Tuesday, and they’re nicely-priced to beat a Shrimpers outfit who have conceded 10 and scored just once this campaign.
It must be said that Southend have had a fairly tough start, but momentum is so important in football, and currently it all belongs to the Chairboys.
Plymouth v Walsall - League Two
Plymouth let me down against Salford on Tuesday, but I’m backing them again, as they’re too good not to return to winning ways against Walsall at home.
The visitors have scored just twice all season, and while they’ve been fairly solid at the back, it’ll take a mammoth effort to resist a Plymouth who are clearly stronger in every department.
Walsall’s last two visits to Home Park have ended in defeat; it’s likely to be three come Saturday evening.
