Clarets to coast past woeful Wigan

WhatBurnley v Wigan Athletic
WhereTurf Moor
When15:00, Saturday 11th March
OddsBurnley 4/11, Draw 4/1, Wigan 13/2

There's no doubting that Burnley will be playing Premier League football again next season, returning to the top-flight at the first time of asking, and Vincent Kompany deserves a huge amount of credit for completely changing the philosophy at the club.

The Clarets have lost just two league games this term, winning 22 and drawing 11, and they are comfortably the top scorers in the division after registering 68 times.

Last weekend's goalless draw at Blackpool was out of character for the table-toppers - the first time they've failed to score in a game since losing to Watford on 16th August and only the second occasion this campaign.

Kompany will be demanding a response when they return to Turf Moor on Saturday, where the Clarets boast an unbeaten record, with 13 wins and five draws.

The overwhelming majority of their goals have come on home soil - 40 of 68 - and that doesn't bode well for bottom club Wigan Athletic.

The Latics are six points from safety and haven't shown any signs of overturning that deficit in recent weeks, despite a change in the dugout with Shaun Maloney replacing Kolo Toure.

Wigan have won just one of their last 14 and their last victory on the road came back on 1st October at Rotherham United.

A high-scoring win for the hosts, who triumphed 5-1 in the reverse fixture, looks the most likely outcome, with Burnley to win and over 2.5 goals priced at 13/10.

Coventry can see off travel-shy Tigers

WhatCoventry City v Hull City
WhereCoventry Building Society Arena
When15:00, Saturday 11th March
OddsCoventry 1/1, Draw 23/10, Hull 3/1

Coventry City go into this latest round of fixtures just points adrift of sixth-placed Norwich City and firmly in the hunt for a play-off berth.

The Sky Blues have been heavily reliant on their home form, picking up 32 of their 52 points at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

They are unbeaten in four on their own patch, winning three during that sequence, and have only lost one of their last 12 in the league.

Hull City are the latest visitors and they do appear to have done enough to steer clear of relegation since the appointment of Liam Rosenior.

But, like Coventry, their best work is done at home and it's no surprise to see them priced at 3/1 to win this game.

The Tigers have failed to win in four on the road, losing three times, and it's worth siding with Coventry at 1/1 to take all three points.

Cardiff to strengthen survival hopes

WhatPreston North End v Cardiff City
When15:00, Saturday 11th March
OddsPreston 7/5, Draw 23/10, Cardiff 2/1

Preston North End still have an outside chance of reaching the play-offs, as they trail sixth-placed Norwich by eight points, but with five teams between themselves and the top six it looks like they might fall just short.

Ryan Lowe's seem to prefer playing on the road - they have the fourth-best away record in the division - and they won't be relishing a return to Deepdale when Cardiff City visit.

The Welsh outfit sit 21st and are six points clear of the drop zone after winning three of their last four.

Just one of those three victories has come on the road, but they offer great value at 2/1 to take advantage of North End's struggles in front of their own fans.

The Bluebirds have enjoyed their recent trips to Preston, winning each of the last three and that trend looks set to continue.

Boro looking to build momentum

WhatSwansea City v Middlesbrough Stadium
When15:00, Saturday 11th March
OddsSwansea 9/4, Draw 13/5, Middlesbrough 23/20

Middlesbrough are still focused on trying to catch second-placed Sheffield United as they seek automatic promotion.

They trail the Blades by seven points after enjoying a remarkable turnaround following the appointment of Michael Carrick in October.

Boro sat 21st when the former Manchester United midfielder arrived, but since then they have won 14 of 19 games, losing just four, to emerge as contenders.

All four of the defeats since Carrick arrived have come away from home, losing his maiden game at Preston and also going down at Burnley, Sunderland and West Brom.

However, that doesn't offer too much cause for concern as each of those four clubs have sights set on promotion, while Swansea City, who they travel to on Saturday, already don't have much to play for.

The Swans sit 17th and are 11 points clear of relegation, but 12 adrift of the play-offs and appear to possibly be lacking motivation.

Boro have responded well to their previous defeats under Carrick, embarking on strong winning runs and, after beating Reading 5-0 last time out, they look set to make it successive victories at 23/20.
