Derby, Nottingham Forest and Wigan in 9/2 Championship treble

| 22.08.2014

There’s outstanding value on offer if you bet on the Championship with Coral this week. A hat-trick of home wins for Derby County, Nottingham Forest and Wigan Athletic is available at an enhanced 9/2.

Steve McClaren’s Rams face pointless Fulham, Stuart Pearce’s Reds entertain Reading and the Latics, under Uwe Rosler, battle Blackpool. Here’s why you should take advantage of this tasty Coral offer with a boosted price.

Derby v Fulham
This is the perfect time for McClaren’s men to play Fulham, who are only off the bottom on goal difference. Felix Magath’s current plight means County are odds-on at 8/11 for victory. Jamie Ward bagged a brace for Derby in his last outing, so it’s 13/8 he can score again anytime here.

A lot of exciting young talent will be on show at Pride Park, and none more so than Will Hughes. The England Under-21 international is reaping the rewards of regular football with the Rams, so it’s 4/1 he repays the faith shown in him by McClaren with a goal in this game.

Nottingham Forest v Reading
Early season table-toppers Forest have invested heavily in remodelling their attack this summer, and it has paid off. Reported £5.5m capture Britt Assombalonga has three goals in as many Championship outings, so is even-money to score anytime against the Royals.

Nigel Adkins, who has a small squad to select from, will be short on striking options for this game, because Reading loan signing Jamie Mackie is ineligible to face his parent club. The Reds are thus odds-on at 19/20 for a City Ground victory.

Wigan v Blackpool
Rosler’s Latics host basement club Blackpool and their hastily assembled squad that are still getting to know one another. The continuity at the DW Stadium alone, when placed alongside such summer turmoil across Lancashire, justifies Wigan’s odds-on price of 4/9 for a home win here. Callum McManaman has two goals in three Championship matches this term, and the forward is 7/4 to add to his tally here.
