Seasiders set for success in Championship accumulator

| 03.05.2014

The Championship season is almost over but a bumper day of action is in store this Saturday with plenty of teams fighting to the bitter end.

Millwall could go down if they fail to beat Bournemouth, who are set for their highest ever league finish, while Brighton could secure a play-off spot with victory over Nottingham Forest.

Blackpool are also fighting to avoid the drop and we’re tipping all three seaside clubs to leave their fans cheering come the final whistle.

A £10 stake on the Cherries, Seagulls and the Tangerines could mean returns of £146.48 at odds of better than 13/1.

Bournemouth to beat Millwall at 21/10

The Cherries are guaranteed their best ever finish but manager Eddie Howe remains keen to cement a top 10 place and will be confident of taking three points against relegation-threatened Millwall.

The Lions, while proving hard to beat at home during their dog fight, have failed to win any of their last nine games at The Den, while Bournemouth are in great form going into this tie.

The Boscombe club have lost just one of their last nine games, are unbeaten in four away from Dean Court and won the reverse fixture 5-2 earlier this season so expect Millwall to be eyeing results elsewhere at the end of this one.

Brighton to beat Nottingham Forest @ 5/4

With sixth-placed Reading away to high-flying Burnley, Brighton know victory could well see them secure the final play-off spot.

And three points looks an easy task against a Forest side in steep decline and already planning their summer holidays.

The hosts have now won just two of their last 16 league games and one of their last seven at home.

The Seagulls, meanwhile, are unbeaten in seven and have lost just twice in nine matches away from the Amex Stadium.

Blackpool to beat Charlton @ 11/10

The Tangerines have been poor for much of the season and as such are still not guaranteed to be playing Championship football next term.

Their fate does lay in their own hands, however, with vital points from Brighton and Wigan giving them a three-point cushion going into the final day.

Inferior goal difference means they cannot rest n their laurels and so they will be going all out to beat a Charlton side with nothing to play for.

The Addicks have won just three of their last 15 away games and after securing safety last week will struggle to get up for this encounter.
