Football: 19/1 Championship Acca - Tuesday, February 22


We go into the second tier tonight and pick out three games, which have been put together to form our 19/1 acca on the night.

  • Middlesbrough to beat West Brom
  • Hull & Barnsley to draw
  • Nottingham Forest to beat Preston

 

Nottingham Forest to beat Preston

Although held at home by Stoke on Saturday, the recent run of Nottingham Forest has been very impressive, winning league games to move into promotion contention, and also beating two Premier League teams in the FA Cup.

Forest travel to Preston on Tuesday night, and we fancy them to come home with another two point.

Preston were beaten at home on Saturday by lowly Reading, they’ve won just two of their last six games and those both came against teams in the relegation fight. Forest are far better than that, they’ve won away at Blackburn and Millwall recently, and we like them to win away again here.

Hull & Barnsley to draw

Two teams who are doing all they can at the moment to not win games. Hull have lost three and drawn two of their last five, Barnsley have won one of their last 12 and just three overall this season.

Beaten by an injury time winner on Saturday, Barnsley are playing more defensively than they have in the past this season, and will no doubt setup in that way against Hull. The home side are not at their best right now, and have scored just two goals in their last five, as they struggle to break teams down.

It may not be pretty this, and could simply be a case of neither team being good enough to beat their opponent, so we like the draw here.

Middlesbrough to beat West Brom

While Middlesbrough lost at the weekend when we fancied them, we like them again here on Tuesday night, against a West Brom team that are really struggling and have quickly lost tough with the promotion race.

A resounding win for #Boro, our sixth in a row at the Riverside ?

The Baggies are down to 11th in the table, and they have not won or scored in their last five games, despite a managerial change. It has quickly turned for them, and we like Middlesbrough to put them under more pressure by winning this game on Tuesday night.

Boro have won their last six at home, conceding just two in those games, and we think they will make it seven to round off the acca.
