Ladbrokes News Acca: We fancy Burnley, Palace and Forest
The end of the season is nigh, but there are a few jam-packed Saturday’s to enjoy yet.
It’s all systems go in the Premier League and the Football League, with plenty still to play both up and down the leagues.
Here are our accumulator tips for this Saturday…
Burnley to beat Brighton & Hove Albion – 6/5
Burnley have been safe in seventh for a while now, but you can rest assured that Sean Dyche won’t allow his players to let up just yet.
The Clarets could still jump Arsenal, and victory at home to Brighton would up the pressure on the Gunners, who head to Manchester United on Sunday.
Only sides in the top six have won at Turf Moor this term, but Burnley should have enough quality to see off a Seagulls side who have lost their last 10 on the road – failing to score seven times.
Nottingham Forest to beat Bristol City – 6/4
Forest welcome Bristol City to the East Midlands tomorrow in what is essentially a dead rubber.
The Robins have pretty much blown their play-off hopes, and lie five points behind Derby County in sixth place.
Their hosts are starting to get it together under new coach Aitor Karanka have won their last two home games, with a tight defeat to Cardiff City sandwiched in between.
With motivation not at its highest for Lee Johnson’s side, Karanka’s Forest can take advantage.
Middlesbrough to beat Millwall – 10/11
Tony Pulis’ Boro can secure a play-off spot with victory this weekend, and their promotion push is largely down to a fine home record. In fact, the Teesside outfit have won six of their last seven at The Riverside.
Visitors Millwall have impressed this term, but appear to be running out of steam. Neil Harris’ men were brushed aside by Fulham last weekend, eventually losing 3-0.
With Middlesbrough winning the last home clash with The Lions by a three-goal margin, it’s hard to see past a Boro victory on Saturday.
Crystal Palace to beat Leicester City – Evens
Palace have to take the initiative at home to Leicester City. They still need points to secure their safety. And the Foxes have nothing left to play for.
The Eagles’ home record gives them a real chance to get a crucial win. They haven’t lost at Selhurst Park to anyone outside the top six since September.
And with Wilfried Zaha in great form, they can cause problems for any side.
Southampton to beat Bournemouth – 4/6
Southampton need points and need them quickly.
The Saints are four points from safety as they welcome a Bournemouth side who should be safe for another year.
Mark Hughes’ men drew last time out in the league at Leicester, and with the visitors looking comfortable in mid table, St Mary’s could roar their side to a vital three points.
So there we go. This Saturday’s selections are Burnley/Crystal Palace/Southampton/Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough all to win!
