Derby, Nottingham Forest, Ipswich a super 7/1 Championship treble

| 24.10.2014

Nothing makes the Championship and Football League in general more exciting than enigmatic managers prowling the touchline. There is method in their madness, and Coral have a superb 7/1 treble on home wins for teams currently coached by Steve McClaren, Stuart Pearce and Mick McCarthy.

League leaders Derby County host Wigan Athletic, East Midlands neighbours Nottingham Forest face Blackburn Rovers and Ipswich Town tackle Huddersfield Town. Each home team are individually strong favourites, so your best bet is to combine them into this tasty treble.

With brilliant bosses in the dugout and this sensationally boosted price, punters should pile money on this straight away. If you need any more convincing, read on to see more reasons why this is a great offer.

Derby v Wigan
The Rams have won two of their last three home games in all competitions 2-0. Couple that with Uwe Rosler’s Latics failing to score in four of their previous five league outings, and it’s easy to see why County are odds-on 4/6 favourites for three points.

Scotland striker Chris Martin is in fantastic form for Derby. He has six goals in five matches since this time last month, and has netted against Wigan before. Why not back him to score last, as he has done in four of those recent games, at a sumptuous 7/2?

Nottingham Forest v Blackburn
Pearce knows the Reds smashed Rovers 4-1 in this fixture last season to complete a 2013/14 double over the Lancashire outfit. Forest are 11/10 for victory again, and 40/1 to record the same scoreline at the City Ground.

Henri Lansbury bagged a brace in this home game back in January, and is a 10/1 chance to net a double or better again here. He is a safer 15/8 to net anytime, while winger Michail Antonio has three in as many league matches and is 2/1 in the same market.

Ipswich v Huddersfield
Suffolk side Ipswich did the double over the Terriers last term, scoring twice against them in each encounter. That is why the Tractor Boys are even-money favourites to win here.

McCarthy has a tried and tested strike partnership of David McGoldrick and Daryl Murphy at Portman Road. Fellow Irishman Murphy has three in his last three league games, as well as netting both home and away against Huddersfield. Back him at 6/5 to score anytime once more.
