Chelsea to upset Cardiff apple cart further in 11/1 cross-division acca
To celebrate a return to all football matters domestic, we’ve carefully selected a result from each of England’s top four divisions which will return £120 off £10 staked if successful.
Cardiff boss Malky Mackay has quickly found out that having a rich investor chairman in the Premier League has serious down as well as upsides, as he is forced to contemplate his position just seven games into the season.
The Scot is not likely to get much change out of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge either, where the Blues have dropped just two points in a dozen league games and are three-from-three already this season.
Another in the home banker bracket (before things get a little spicier below), is mid-table Huddersfield’s trip to a high-flying Leicester side, who are unbeaten at the Walkers Stadium this season, winning the last four straight there.
Nigel Pearson will be expecting a reaction from his Foxes squad too, after a bubble-bursting 1-0 loss at Doncaster before the international break, and a Terriers side who’ve picked up just two points from the last 12 available look ideal fodder.
Bradford are another club riding high, currently fourth in League One, but like Pearson at Leicester, Phil Parkinson will be looking for a response to a disappointing loss to lowly Tranmere, which ended a run of three straight league wins.
Although Crawley are unbeaten in six league games themselves, that only includes three wins, and Bradford’s away form should be enough to inflict an overdue defeat on the Red Devils.
The Bantems have won their last two on the road, losing just once outside of Valley Parade this season.
Lastly, if there was ever such a thing as an away banker then this fixture has all the hallmarks.
Glued to the foot of the table, poor old Accrington have taken just one point from a possible 15 at home thus far as they entertain third-placed Oxford.
Conversely, the U’s top the away form table in the division, claiming four wins and a draw from their five on the road to date.
