Goals should be spread throughout the English leagues this weekend, and following the form should guide us to a nice winner. If you fancy our treble on goals selections this week you can get around 7/2 with 10Bet
Fulham Vs Brentford
A very local west London clash where they is less than seven miles apart splitting the pair. Brentford come into this in tenth place, whereas Fulham are six places worse off. Coincidently the cottagers have the same home form stats as the bees visiting Craven Cottage. The last six generally favours the visitors with one loss in this period whereas Fulham have lost three from in the same period.

Dean Smith’s men have played some fairly conservative football for goals in their travels with just a third of their away matches heading more than two goals. Their hotshot Alan Judge could make it two goals in as many games in the London derby with some contrasts in pricing for him to net again.
Fulham, who are still without a permanent coach have appointed Stuart Gray as senior coach and he will take charge of Saturday’s derby against Brentford. The cottagers remain without a permanent fixture since Kit Symons was sacked in early November.
Fulham are full of goals, with a perfect record of three or more goals at Craven this season, and with the derby as it is this could go either way. Brentford will see the opportunity to take the points according to the implied match odds. I am sure Fulham’s hotshots Ross McCormack and Dembele will have something to say about this and believe London derbies carry bragging rights.
In addition the last two meetings have seen over’s and this will make a third.

Colchester Vs Barnsley
The Tykes led by gaffer Lee Johnson head to the Weston Homes Community Stadium where Colchester will be hosting this league one clash. Both sides are at the wrong end of the table with the hosts a place above relegation, with Barnsley sitting on the foot of League one.
The form coming in to this have the host winless in the last eight and all of the last six have resulted in a loss. The Tykes have suffered six defeats in the same period.
Barnsley conceded at least one goal in each of their last eleven games including at least one goal in each of their last ten on the road, which has led to thirty-four conceded in twenty matches. The hosts, who have seen a total of seventy-nine goals in twenty games offer a tad-shy below four goals per game.
Both sides really need a result, and Colchester is at no shortage of goals. Barnsley to their credit in the last six in games they have lost has resulted in a loss by no more than one goal in all but one. Looking at the goals market, the news is positive.
The call here is for the over line, as seven from ten home results have stormed home, with eight from ten from the visitors. This is substantially better than the league average. On this basis, attempting to make a case for fewer than three goals is tough. Both sides need a result, and recent results all point towards goals.

Peterborough Vs Shrewsbury
Posh host Mickey Mellon’s Shrewsbury who makes the trip across the United Kingdom to London road as the next challenger to attempt to break Peterborough’s winning streak. The visitors have patchy form, although just two defeats in the last six in all competition will arrive in the East with a shout!
Graham Westley’s men have seen their recent form allow them to climb to fourth place in League one. Their fluid style of football has allowed goals to flow in, although they are prone to conceding. It does appear that Posh with a young side are resilient in reacting with two-thirds of their goals netting after the break.
Stats based on goals would pit the second half as the highest scoring half. Relevant stats state the home side resulting in three quarters of games having ended over two goals scored in total including eight of ten at home. Advantageous signs for Shrewsbury is the knowledge that Peterborough have conceded at least one goal in all but one of their home games this season totalling nine. The hosts however have not failed to net for their home fans this season.
The pointers do steer towards goals here as the hosts certainly see goals in this fixture with four of the last six meetings all heading over. With recent form generally, the hosts are on a high, although the visitors have a goal inside them!
