Southampton v Burnley

Saints v Burnley

Ronald Koeman’s side continue to confound their critics, proving them and the bookies wrong on a weekly basis.

With only nine games to go it seems inevitable they will finish in the top seven, a fabulous season. However, their charge for top four seems to have hit the rocks and while their defence is still proving miserly, they are struggling to score goals.

Games involving the Saints have had under 2.5 goals in 9 of their last 10 outings.

Their opponents this weekend are coming off the back of their result of the season –  humbling of the champions Manchester City. Sean Dyche has had his team playing with spirit all season and are still in with a chance of retaining their top flight status.

Their defensive performance against City proves they are up for a fight and will not just roll over against any side.

Back under 2.5 goals @ 17/20

Charlton Athletic v Reading

Reading v Charlton Athletic - Sky Bet Football League Championship

The Addicks have again found the kind of form that made them one of the early season pacemakers. Guy Luzon has led his new side to four wins in their last six games and are now targeting a top ten finish.

Their opponents this weekend are cup semi-finalists, Reading. Although their form in the cup has been impressive, their return to the second tier has been far from that. Still not clear of relegation with less than ten games to go, Steve Clarke has struggled to have the impact he would have desired.

Charlton won the reverse fixture at the Madejski 1-0 earlier in the season and with The Royals awful away record, with only four wins all season, Luzon’s men will fancy taking all three points.

Back Charlton @ 9/5

Sheffield United v Port Vale

Port Vale v Sheffield United - Sky Bet Football League One

Nigel Clough’s men are in the middle of a desperate run of form, no wins in the last five and they are in danger of dropping out of the top six altogether. However, even in this difficult run of form, United have continued to find the net, in each of their last 10 games, both teams have scored.

Their visitors to Bramall Lane this weekend are Port Vale, they had managed to get themselves on the coat tails of the playoff race, but two disappointing results have probably left them with too much to do at this stage of the season.

Page’s men have scored at least once in their last five away games.

Back both teams to score @ evens

A £10 treble on all selections will return on average £95.
