Saturday’s fixture list could decide the fate of several clubs up and down the country and it’s set to be a cracking afternoon of action. Whilst managers will be searching for three points, the only thing we’re interested in is a potential £655 profit from Corals
That’s what we’re aiming for with this BTTS & Win treble. Some teams could be opening the bubbly come 5PM, let’s hope we’re joining the celebrations.
For the sake of a £10 stake, it’s got to be worth a punt.
Bristol City V Coventry City
Steve Cotterill’s Robins secured promotion to the Championship in emphatic style by firing six past Bradford City at Valley Parade on Tuesday night. Victory over Coventry would make Saturday’s party even sweeter as it would also secure the League One title.
An incredible record at Ashton Gate has been central to the home side’s incredible season and a return of 40 goals and just two defeats deserves widespread applause. However, whilst the firepower of Aaron Wilbraham, Keiran Agard and co should ensure another three points, the hosts can expect a tough challenge from the Sky Blues.
Coventry aren’t the greatest travellers but they certainly aren’t the worst and their 22 away goals is a source of confidence, especially as Bristol might take their foot off the pedal slightly following their promotion. Tony Mowbray’s men are unbeaten in four away games too; whilst that run is likely to end at Ashton Gate, there is no reason to think they won’t at least score.
The Robins claimed a 3-1 win at the Ricoh Arena back in October. A repeat scoreline would suit us perfectly.

Luton Town V Hartlepool United
Two months ago, Hartlepool United looked dead and buried. However, an incredible recovery has seen Ronnie Moore’s climb out of the relegation zone and, wuith three games to play, the Great Escape looks on for the Pool once more.
Hartlepool aren’t out of the water yet, though, and could be set for a disappointing afternoon at Kenilworth Road against a Luton side that still possess slim hopes of back-to-back promotions. John Still’s home side have really struggled in recent weeks, losing seven of the last 10, but a win over Hartlepool could reignite their play-off charge and the Hatters will be expected to win.
Despite the poor run of form, Luton are still scoring goals and have netted at 14 in their past eight home games including at least two on four occasions. Meanwhile, West Ham loanee Elliot Lee has added another dimension to the Hatters’ frontline and we can expect big things against a Hartlepool side that has leaked 34 on the road.
Nonetheless, you can’t overlook Luton’s poor form and that should give Hartlepool the confidence to score. Unfortunately for the travelling supporters, we’re not sure that’ll be enough to secure any points.

Nuneaton Town V Woking
It seems unlikely, but a place in the play-offs could still be on the Cards for Garry Hill’s Woking if they win their final two games of the Conference season. The visitors will be fully expected to keep their slim hopes alive with a comfortable victory over relegation destined Nuneaton.
Save a mid-season blip, the Cardinals have been very reliable away from home this term and boast the division’s fourth best record on the road with 10 wins and an impressive 37 goals. With deadly duo Guiseppe Sole and Scott Rendall in attack, the visitors should have the firepower for another three points here.
The Cards have shipped 27 on the road, though, which will afford a degree of optimism to the struggling hosts. Liam Daish’s men are already relegated by a virtue of the fact Alfreton play Welling this weekend, but they’ll still want to end their home campaign on a positive and should fancy theri chances of finding the target.
Unfortunately, though, the lacklustre home side have leaked 32 at Liberty Way and those defensive shortcomings are likely to be their downfall once more.
