This 44/1 Championship accumulator can help spice up your Saturday night

Burnley, Derby, Brighton and the Forest can bring this long shot up

by David Kent | February 12, 2016

The lead at the top of the Championship is changing more than the name of Kanye West’s new album. Right now, Middelsbrough are the Yeezus at the top, but only after Jordan Rhodes rescued them midweek. Paddy’s looking to four of the top eight to bring you enough cash in to treat your missus to a trip to Wembley for the playoffs!


Brighton vs Bolton

Chris Hughton840

Three wins on the spin has brought Brighton back into that promotion picture. They were looking like runaway leaders before Christmas but five games without victory saw the Seagulls temporarily follow the trawler down into the playoffs. They’ve sharpened up again though, the addition of Steve Sidwell in the transfer window has been important. Bolton themselves are unbeaten in three including a win over Rotherham to lift them off the bottom of the table. I would not be surprised if they were back there after Saturday though. Brighton win at

Derby vs MK Dons

So you’re five points off the top of the table and only lost three times in your last twelve games. What’s the next step? Sack your manager! That’s what Derby did, bizarrely removing Paul Clement during the week leaving Darren Wassall in charge for the visit of the MK Dons to Pride Park. The Dons have one of the worst away records in England, they haven’t won in their last 14 games away from home. The atmosphere is sure to be tense as Derby look to get back into the picture. Derby win at

Rotherham vs Birmingham

Neil Warnock 21/4/2007

Rotherham have been in free fall and are next on Bolton’s radar. They’re in danger of being cut off from safety, currently three behind Bristol City, and they’ve brought in the footballing equivalent of Katie Price to steady the ship. Just when you think you’ve got rid of Neil Warnock, he’s back in management. He’s got a tough task in his first game though, trying to stop the best away team in the division in the form of Birmingham, who were unbeaten in seven before losing to Sheffield Wednesday. I expect them to put it right. Birmingham win at

Reading vs Burnley


Burnley can go on top of the league if results go their way on Saturday, but they’re travelling to face one of their dodgier opponents in Reading. The Clarets last seven games against the Royals – five losses, a draw and just a single victory coming in October of 2013. They haven’t won in Berkshire in the regular season in 35 years, when Steve Taylor scored twice in a 3-1 win at the old Elm Park. Reading are unbeaten at home since Boxing Day and could be sticky again for Sean Dyche. Draw at

Nott’m Forest vs Huddersfield 

Forest fans 9/10/2008

Huddersfield need to change their form around and fast. Three losses on the bounce has them staring nervously over their shoulder in 17th. But if there’s one place a side doesn’t want to go right now (apart from to the city of Leeds) it’s the City Ground where Forest haven’t lost for 10 games. There’s been quiet whispers about a late playoff charge for them, and a victory here will see that talk rise another level. Forest win at
