Fulham vs Reading

An impressive 4-1 win at Birmingham took Fulham to the top of the Championship table last time out, and the Cottagers are also the top scorers in the division with an impressive 17 goals from seven matches.

Next up it's a home clash against resurgent Reading, who started the season abysmally with four losses out of five games but are creeping up the table thanks to a win and a draw in their last two matches.

However, the warning signs are still there as Veljko Paunovic's men have lost all three of their away games this season, and with Fulham unbeaten on their own patch after two wins and a draw, it's hard to see the Royals getting anything from this one.

A home win is 4/11, but even in a disappointing start to the campaign the Royals are still the third-highest scorers in the league with 13 goals, so we're also happy backing Fulham to win and both teams to score at 2/1.

Cardiff City v Bournemouth

Scott Parker's Bournemouth side are hot on the heels of his former employers after an unbeaten start to the season, winning four and drawing three of their opening seven league matches.

A 2-1 win against in-form QPR last time out was a real statement of intent from the Cherries and in Dominic Solanke they have one of the most in-form strikers in the Championship, as the former Liverpool man is finally living up to his potential by netting five times in his last five games.

After a strong start Cardiff have lost two and won one of their last three matches and the Bluebirds have a patchy home record, winning one, losing one and drawing one at the imaginatively-named Cardiff City Stadium.

However, Mick McCarthy's men have scored in each of those home games, so while the visitors are the value bet at 6/4, we're more interested in both teams to score at 17/20.

Preston vs West Brom

Along with Bournemouth, West Brom are the only unbeaten side in the Championship, but the Baggies have only managed two draws from their last two games and face a real test at a Preston side who are unbeaten in their last four league matches.

Preston have also won their last two at Deepdale and will not fear a visit from their more illustrious opponents.

However, the issue we have is that just one of the seven teams they have played this season currently lie in the top half of the Championship table, and the one that does, Huddersfield, defeated Frankie McAvoy's men in August.

So with a big question mark about how Preston will cope with the step up in class and an enticing even money available on a West Brom win, we're happy to take a punt on the Baggies at Deepdale.

Huddersfield Town vs Nottingham Forest

Having overseen Forest's worst start to a season in 108 years, it was no surprise that Chris Hughton was relieved of his duties this week, with ex-Swansea boss Steve Cooper the hot favourite to grasp the City Ground's poisoned chalice.

Caretaker boss Steven Reid will take charge at Huddersfield and in the time honoured tradition we're expecting an upturn in performance from the away side, but they face a tough task at a Terriers side fresh off an impressive 3-0 win at Blackpool.

The hosts are sixth in the table with four wins from their last five games and Carlos Corberan's men have netted 11 times in that period.

We reckon Huddersfield are a shoo-in to score, but the Forest revival will start with at least a goal at the McAlpine Stadium, with both teams to score a 10/11 shot.

Fleetwood Town vs Sunderland

Sunderland top the League One table after winning five and drawing one of their opening six games, winning their last three and scoring six times in the process.

Fleetwood are 17th but their position doesn't reflect the form they are in, as the magnificently-monikered Cod Army have marched to two wins and a draw in their last three matches, scoring a whopping eight times.

The host's recent form is probably why a Sunderland win is available at a tempting 21/20, but with the last six games played by both these sides this season producing a total of 19 goals, we're also happy to take a very acca-friendly 23/20 on over 2.5 goals.

Stevenage vs Forest Green Rovers

Forest Green have plotted a rather unspectacular route to the top of the League Two table in recent weeks, winning one, losing one and drawing one of their last three games and scoring just one goal.

Stevenage would love to be in that type of form as they are winless in five with just three points from a possible 15, but a ray of hope as they prepare for a visit from the league leaders is that the Boro are unbeaten in three games this season at the Lamex Stadium.

We reckon the hosts can keep it respectable against Rovers and with the visitors looking shot shy in recent weeks, even at 13/20 we're happy to take a punt on under 2.5 goals.
