Leeds, Middlesbrough, Forest and Burnley part of this bumper 40/1 Championship Acca

Christmas can take it out of most Championship clubs, but don't let it take out your bank account, by backing this accumulator

by David Kent | December 18, 2015

After a dramatic weekend at the top of the table, there’s a massive clash in the Amex, as well as two new managers, a local(ish) derby and a battle between two of the bottom six

Brighton vs Middlesbrough – Middlesbrough at 

Only one place to start, and the clash of the top two. Brighton are still unbeaten, but a series of draws has allowed the Teesiders to overtake them at the top of the table. Victory for Boro on Saturday will give them the lead at Christmas, and they have every reason to be confident as they are top of the form table. Brighton will want to fighting for that top spot though, and with the second highest number of shots in the division, they’re going about it the right way/ But they’ve been scraping results and I don’t think they’ll have enough

Leeds vs Preston – Leeds at

Leeds-United-PHOF

After picking up just two wins in their first 14 games of the season, Leeds have won four of their next seven, including seven points from their last three games. Those wins have been against promotion chasing sides as well. They welcome a Preston side that are really struggling for goals away from Deepdale, with just nine in eight games. Leeds are averaging one per match at home, and I’m backing them to pick up three more points

Reading vs Blackburn – Reading at

Reading Football Club Championship Trophy Victory Parade

As I mentioned, Brighton have the second highest number of shots in the division. Topping that table is Reading, who’s star has been Nick Blackman. His glorious opener against Hull in midweek had Reading on the right track, but a late goal  snatched a win for The Tigers at the death. Brian McDermott is back in charge of the Royals, and will want to make a statement in his first home game against a Blackburn side that’ve only won three away games all year – albeit their last three. I’m thinking the Royals will want to welcome home McDermott in style though, and climb back up the table

Burnley vs Charlton – Burnley at 

After seeming to challenge for the title, Burnley have forgotten how to win. Their last victory came nearly two months ago at home to Fulham, but four draws and two losses from their next six has them in 5th, beginning to lose ground on the top three. Charlton were sucker punched midweek by Emile Heskey, as they blew a two goal lead for the second time in three games. It edged them into the bottom three, and have failed to score in nine of their 10 away games. Comfortable home win

Nottingham Forest vs MK Dons – Forest at

Forest are unbeaten in their last five games, and haven’t lost at home since the beginning of October. The MK Dons have the second worst average points tally away from home in the Championship (only Bolton are worse) and have only won three of their last 18 matches. This is another home win
