With some lower league games called off midweek, it did not stop our Tuesday treble, reduced to a double rolling home at 12/5.
Wednesday we were unlucky, but roll on to the weekend where the cold and goals might not rhyme but may relate better come 5pm Saturday.
Today’s treble pays a backable 5.70 with Sky Bet. Perhaps try a Trixie bet, which covers three doubles and one treble. If all three land it is happy days. Two come in, you still get a return! Worth considering?!
Huddersfield Vs Fulham
The inform hosts Huddersfield welcome the Cottagers to the John Smith’s stadium, where David Wagner’s men are steering towards safety after a four game undefeated streak. In recent times, the sides have traded places in the Championship where Fulham look to avoid any further decline.
Slaviša Jokanović’s Fulham have far from favourable results with one win in the last eight. With five defeats in the period, times are bleak, whereas the hosts are looking much rosier.
Home fans were treated to a five goal mauling of Charlton in midweek, where the Addicks were so ashamed by the result offering refunds to travelling fans. The hosts with results against Bolton, Preston and QPR does question they were teams around them in the table, but the West London side are amongst the pack.
Nearly seven from every ten Fulham games has resulted in at least three goals this term. This partially comprises that the Cottagers conceded in all of the last fifteen. The hosts have shipped goals in seventy-seven percent of home games but have netted in all of the last eight. Fulham have seen eighty-eight goals combined in twenty-six games averaging in excess of three per game. It must be also noted that the Cottages have conceded in all but one on the road this term.
Goals are a must in this, as we have a home side putting together a credible run, versus a Fulham side that need to change their fortunes. With the likes of Ross McCormack, who in the past has been labelled as hot property? Fulham will bring their attacking style to Huddersfield, who on their run will fancy the win. Fulham rarely give in, which could see the goal line being met at 8/11 with Skybet.

Shrewsbury Vs Barnsley
A game where two places and one point separate the pair, which could see one side slip into the relegation zone if results go against them in League one.
Barnsley, whose form on paper is considerably favourable should feel confident about this. Lee Johnson’s Yorkshire outfit are in high spirits after winning their last two outings. Shrewsbury in comparison will look to overcome their thrashing to Chesterfield, where they shipped seven goals.
The Tykes on the road have failed to impress registering just ten points from eleven played. Mickey Mellon’s Shrewsbury in comparison lack also, hardly inundated their points tally pocketing a mere eleven from a possible thirty-six this term. New Meadow is not the fortress like some home sides respective grounds are in the league. The hosts have conceded in ten of their dozen games. Better news for the Shrews is the awareness that the Tykes have conceded in every away game this season.
With the positions of both sides, neither has been short of goals, but again shipping a few also. In addition, neither have any solid form, although if you were made to select a winner, you would have to edge towards the draw purely on price. Of the last eight games respectively, the home side with two victories, five of which resulted in three or more goals in the game. The Tykes in the same period knocked off four wins, including three in the last four. Six of the eight all headed over, and with bookies opting this as a coin toss, the stats firmly lean on goals.
Both sides need to begin sorting their seasons out. Barnsley appears to be proactively progressing, and the hosts need to put their last defeat behind them. Goals on the agenda here and 10/11 with most firms have the stats leaning in three or more goals then making a valid case for fewer than three.

Peterborough Vs Southend
The battle of two credible play off candidates square off from the ABAX stadium as Graham Westley’s men look to make it two wins from two against a Southend side that has slipped into a blip losing all of the last three, all resulting in heavy defeats.
Phil Brown’s men have not won since a confident to nil win versus Colchester three games ago. The blues away form is better than average generating seventeen points from a possible thirty-six. Posh’s home form is fair also but has narrowly better success in the last eight suffering just two defeats.
I have spoken about Peterborough in the past and their open fluid style of play. With the recent results in mind, seeing a goal shy game would be surprising. All of the last eight respectively have seen a tally of twenty-eight averaging three and a half goals overall.
Posh do concede at the ABAX having kept just two clean sheets this term in front of their home faithful. In addition the hosts have not failed to net in all of the last twelve at home thanks to hotshots Conor Washington and Lee Angol. In comparison, the blues have netted in all of the last five on the road. Southend will look towards David Mooney, who has four on the road this season and will be a popular BTTS selection on the coupon this weekend.
Bookmakers do edge goals in this tie, but not spectacularly with SkyBet quoting the industry leading price at 4/5 with some firms as short as 4/6.
