Derby, Middlesbrough and Preston star in fab 5/1 midweek special

| 12.08.2015

Enjoy a break from your hard work this midweek with Coral by reaping the rewards of yet another sensational special offer, featuring three top Championship sides.

Back Derby County, Middlesbrough and Preston all to win at 5/1 in their midweek clashes and enjoy these excellently enhanced odds, with all three clubs odds-on favourites to triumph in their respective fixtures individually.

It therefore makes sense to get on this tantalising treble, as the Rams face Portsmouth, Boro travel to Oldham and Preston contest Crewe Alexandra.

Here are even more reasons why you should benefit from this brilliantly enhanced treble.

Portsmouth v Derby
The Rams are odds-on 5/6 favourites to topple Pompey, who they have managed to easily overcome in three of their last four meetings, with the other result being a draw at Fratton Park.

Derby have not been beaten by Portsmouth since January 2008 and they look set to continue that dominant record in their latest Championship meeting.

Tom Ince is the key danger for the travelling outfit and he is a 5/1 chance to open proceedings on the road for his side in this early season encounter.

Oldham v Middlesbrough
Boro are the massive 5/6 favourites to topple their inferior opposition during midweek, having comfortably dispatched them 3-0 in a Capital One Cup clash last year at Boundary Park.

Aitor Karanka’s key Spanish frontman Kike will be a threat to the hosts, having wrapped up the last clash in 2014, and he is 9/2 to strike the last goal of the game again this time out.

Crewe v Preston
The visitors are the strong 3/4 favourites to secure three points on their travels to Crewe, having hammered their opposition 5-1 last season at Deepdale.

Having taken four points from the two league encounters last term, Preston will be supremely confident of notching up another dominant result on the road.

Simon Grayson’s has in-form forward Joe Garner to call upon in this fixture, and he is 6/1 to bag a brace or more, having clinically dispatched a four-goal haul against Crewe in that superior triumph last year.
