There’s a long season ahead and we’ll only need one of these trebles to land for an overall profit. Let’s hope it comes here.

Nottingham Forest V Rotherham United
It has been a difficult start for Dougie Freedman’s Reds, who have suffered back-to-back defeats against Brighton and Walsall. However, the City Ground club will be optimistic about grabbing their first win of the campaign against Rotherham.
Despite losing, the Reds did score three goals in their first home game on Tuesday and will be hoping to bring that attacking prowess to this Championship encounter. In fairness, the likes of Dexter Blackstock should have a good chance of finding the net against a weak Millers backline.
The visitors were thrashed at home by MK Dons last week, conceding four goals in the process. However, Matt Derbyshire did get a goal for Steve Evans’ men in that opening fixture and can fancy their chances of scoring against a leaky home defence.
Forest should be fancied to get the three points, but there’s still huge room for improvement. We’re not sure their capable of a shutout.

Peterborough United V Colchester United
Last season, Colchester United claimed an impressive 2-0 win in their away trip to London Road and the Essex club will fancy their chances of more goals after scoring twice in their League One opener against Blackpool. However, we’re backing Peterborough to seal their points.
It’s worth noting that the visitors conceded twice on home soil last week, so Tony Humes’ defence could be up against it here. After all, they did play 120 gruelling minutes against Reading on Tuesday. Besides, Peterborough did score 27 home goals last term.
However, Posh also conceded 26 on their own patch in 2014/15. Meanwhile, they lost their opening day trip to Rochdale 2-0 so Dave Robertson’s men might need to score a couple to clinch all three points.
Fortunately for the hosts, they did clinch a morale boosting 2-0 home win over Crawley in Tuesday’s Capital One Cup clash. While we think Colchester can find the target, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Posh seal the points.

Carlisle United V Cambridge United
Richard Money’s U’s are the early League Two pacesetter after cruising to a 3-0 win against Newport last week. While we’re backing Cambridge to put another three points in the bag at Carlisle, they should expect a more difficult test at Brunton Park.
The visitors were distracted by their cup antics last year, but still enjoyed a decent first season back in the Football League. They’ll be hoping to push on this term and new signing Barry Corr looks like he could be the man to fire them to promotion. The former Southend man netted twice on his debut and will fancy more in this second game of the campaign.
However, Keith Curle’s men are a gritty outfit as they showed throughout the latter half of last season. They also displayed those characteristics in last week’s 1-1 draw at Mansfield as well as Tuesday’s extra-time cup win over Chesterfield.
Nonetheless, we really fancy Cambridge to enjoy a big season and are backing them to seal the points.
