The Euro 2016 qualifiers means that there is no action in England’s top two divisions this weekend. Don’t fear, though, as the League One and Two offering still provides us with ample opportunity to win big with this epic 85/1 BTTS and match result treble at Coral
We’re backing three home sides to all claim the spoils but do think each of their defences can be troubled by spirited away teams.
Bristol City V Chesterfield
Our first selection comes from Ashton Gate and we’re backing League One leaders Bristol City to continue their fine form as they take on a very decent Chesterfield.
The Spireites have acclimatised to life in League One superbly following last year’s promotion and enter the weekend’s action inside the play-off places. Equally impressive is their return of nine goals from just five away matches. Nonetheless, picking up points against the titel favourites is a tough ask.
City boast 13 points from a possible 15 at home, scoring 10 and conceding just three at Ashton Gate. However, Chesterfield have scored in each of their past six league games and can pose a threat to the Bristol defence.
In fact, all six of those Chesterfield matches have ended in BTTS winners and there is no reason for us to think that sequence will end here. However, we cannot overlook the Robins fine home form and are therefore backing them to pick up the points.

Sheffield United V Leyton Orient
Staying in League One and an in-form Sheffield United should have enough quality to see off Leyton Orient at Bramall Lane but Nigel Clough’s men should be prepared for an intense battle against last year’s play-off finalists.
The Blades beat the O’s 1-0 at Brisbane Road in last month’s Capital One Cup clash but Kevin Nugent’s men have since scored five goals in three competitive matches. However, it is worth noting that they did lose two of those encounters.
Orient will be relieved to have their managerial situation resolved following the acrimonious departure of former boss Russell Slade and can now look to enjoy a more productive spell as they look to climb the League One table. Unfortunately, Sheffield United away is probably the last game they’d want right now and should be set for another disappointment on Saturday.
Nevertheless, the Londoners do possess some quality players and could quite easily find the target at some stage during proceedings.

Shrewsbury Town V Cheltenham Town
Both Shrewsbury and Cheltenham have suffered a dip in form recently but we think the Shrews can make home advantage count by edging Saturday’s showdown at New Meadow.
Neither club has won any of their past three League Two outings but it is the visitors who are in the worse form and Mark Yates men have now gone six league matches without tasting victory. On a brighter note, they have at least found the target in two of their most recent three and can hope to find the net against a home defence that has conceded in each of its last two.
Despite those consecutive away defeats, Shrewsbury have been pretty strong at New Meadow and should get the victory here. However, those defensive frailties could mean that they need more than one goal to secure what would be crucial three points.
This contest probably doesn’t have the makings of a classic but we suspect there will be enough chances for both teams to score. Whatever happens, both sides are desperate to get back to winning ways – we’re leaning towards a slender home win.
