Fancy your chances of picking three games from a full set of fixtures to have three goals? So do we, and that’s exactly what we’re looking to do with the Saturday treble.
All we need is over 2.5 goals in each of these three matches and we’ll be celebrating an 11/2 winner. Confidence is particularly high after hitting a winning 11/2 treble on Thursday night. Let’s hope we can bring that Europa League form to the domestic matches here.
Bristol City V Reading
Newly promoted Bristol City might be struggling for results during the early weeks of their first year back in the Championship. On a brighter note, Steve Cotterill’s men are scoring goals, which is why we’re expecting another dramatic contest as they welcome Reading to Ashton Gate.
The Robins have scored nine goals in their seven matches so far, including five in three home games. However, their leaky defence has conceded 15 times already this season, which will be a major concern for the struggling hosts.
Meanwhile, Reading have scored 10 goals in 2015/16, with all three away games ending in BTTS winners. If Steve Clarke’s side continue that trend here, there will be a strong chance that the over 2.5 selection comes in too.
Let’s just hope the likes of Orlando Sa, Nick Blackman, and Jonathan Kodjia live up to the expectations.

Coventry City V Chesterfield
Tony Mowbray’s Sky Blues have started the 2015/16 in great form, and will be looking to secure another three points on Saturday as they welcome Chesterfield to the Ricoh. While the hosts can be confident, they shouldn’t expect to have everything their own way against an equally optimistic away side.
Coventry have scored seven goals in just three home games this season while on-loan sensation Adam Armstrong has already scored five goals overall. The Sky Blues will be extremely confident about finding more goals in front of their home fans, and are more than capable of bagging a couple here.
The Spireites are in great scoring form too, though, after scoring seven in their past three outings alone. However, it is worth noting that Dean Saunders’ men have conceded three in each of their last two matches, including a seemingly easy home match against Colchester last weekend.
Goals have been a common feature for both sides in recent weeks. We can’t see any reason to think that will change.
Over 2.5 match goals @ 19/20
Boreham Wood V Wrexham
In the Conference, Boreham Wood’s last four matches have all ended in BTTS defeats. Even if Ian Allinson’s men do stop the rot on Saturday, we expect there to be plenty of goals at Meadow Park.
Like the hosts, visiting Wrexham have been fond of goals at both ends of the pitch in recent weeks with Gary Mills’ men being involved in five straight BTTS winners. Four of those matches have seen a minimum of three goals too.
The good thing about both sides is that their goals have come from a variety of sources. Both teams need a win, albeit for different reasons, which is another reason to believe there will be an emphasis on attack.
Had this game been in Wales, we might have had some reservations. With Boreham Wood at home, though, we have to fancy goals.
