Burnley to beat Reading – 4/7

Burnley are the stand-out team in the Championship and look extremely well-coached under Vincent Kompany.

The Clarets have an appealing mixture of proven performers like Jack Cork and Jay Rodriguez, with break-out stars such as Anass Zaroury, who was outstanding in Tuesday’s 1-0 win over Norwich.

That victory lifted the East Lancashire outfit to the top of the table, having collected 13 points from the last 15 available, and it’s hard to see anyone stopping them in their bid for an instant Premier League return.

Reading are having a much stronger campaign than many expected, having beaten Bristol City 2-0 last time out: manager Paul Ince is pleased with recent performances, even during the run of three straight defeats.

Nonetheless, they are a level below their hosts, which could show at Turf Moor.

Ipswich to win at Charlton – 10/11

Ipswich have one of the best coaches in the EFL in Kieran McKenna and if the Irishman stays at Portman Road for the long haul, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him lead them into the Premier League within the next five years.

McKenna’s side have had to operate without key midfielders Sam Morsy and Lee Evans lately, but they battled for a 3-2 victory at Port Vale in midweek, with Cam Humphreys and Dom Ball standing in well in their absence – Plymouth Argyle recruit Panutche Camara is in the reckoning too.

With Freddie Ladapo showing signs of catching fire, Wes Burns and Leif Davis ripping it up from their wing-back roles and a plethora of options in the number 10 positions, Town always have tools to open up their opponents on top of a solid defence.

In fact, Ipswich’s form so far this season over a full campaign would get them to 104, and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if their eventual total was close to that.

The Suffolk club should defeat Play-Off outsiders Charlton, who lost 2-0 to MK Dons in midweek.

Peterborough to beat Cambridge – 40/85

It’s been 21 years since Peterborough last met Cambridge in this derby fixture.

The Posh have spent much of that time in League One, though they have managed the occasional Championship escapade, while their rivals spent nine years in the non-league wilderness before promotions under Richard Money, then later Mark Bonner.

The derby may be significant to older generations of supporters, but perhaps not especially to either fanbase collectively.

The U’s battled for a 3-2 victory at Wycombe in midweek, which takes some of the pressure off, but it’s unlikely they will be quite as clinical as they were in that one or benefit from their opponents being quite so wasteful.

Harrison Burrows and Ephron Mason-Clark have impressed for Peterborough in recent games, feeding off a ruthless focal point in Jonson Clarke-Harris.

Bradford to beat Crawley – 3/4

It’s just one league defeat in 11 for Bradford, although they were denied all three points in midweek through an injury-time Swindon goal.

Matty Platt has forged a solid pairing with Romoney Crichlow in defence, Alex Gilliead compliments Richie Smallwood in midfield – and in Andy Cook, the Bantams boast one of the best strikers in the division.

With plenty of depth, Mark Hughes’ side look well capable of continuing their good form, even against a Crawley side who have made some improvements under the interim stewardship of Lewis Young.

Stockport to beat Sutton – 4/6

Stockport County have won three of their last four league games to nil: each coming against top-10 opposition.

Will Collar and Ryan Croasdale have been outstanding in midfield for Dave Challinor’s charges, while Kyle Wootton is enjoying something of a renaissance up top.

The Hatters had been hoping to push for a second promotion, and while they made life difficult for themselves with an underwhelming start, they now have momentum: the eight-point gap to the Play-Offs isn’t insurmountable with 31 games to play.

Sutton have been able to recover some form despite an injury crisis, having followed a four-game losing streak by going three unbeaten, but Matt Gray’s side really are down to the bare bones.
