Championship Saturday Accumulator: Burnley to continue title charge at Preston's expense

There are 11 games scheduled in the Championship on Saturday as teams in the second tier continue to fight it out at both ends of the table.

League leaders Burnley have a seven-point advantage at the top of the table, and they will fancy their chances of adding to that when they host neighbours Preston North End.

Bristol City's recent form suggests they could produce a late play-off charge, but their credentials will be put to the test against Norwich City at Ashton Gate this weekend.

Middlesbrough's place in the play-offs is secure for now and Michael Carrick's side, who sit third, will feel they can cut the gap on second-placed Sheffield United when they travel to Cardiff City, who are hovering just above the relegation zone.

We have predicted the outcome of these three matches and our treble produces odds of just over 16/1.

Saturday Accumulator:

Bristol City vs Norwich City - Draw and Both Teams to Score @ 10/3

Burnley To Win and Both Teams to Score @ 3/1

Middlesbrough To Win to Nil @ 5/2

Odds correct at time of writing and are subject to fluctuation.

OddsBristol City 19/10, Draw 12/5, Norwich 7/5

Bristol City can take a major step towards the Championship play-offs this weekend when they host Norwich City.

Nigel Pearson's side are 17th in the table, but such is the complexity of the Championship that they are only eight points off the top six.

Saturday's opponents are seven positions higher than them, but only six points separate the two sides.

Even though the gap between the two seems vast, the Robins are enjoying their best run of results this season.

They are unbeaten in eight in all competitions and, after winning four of their last five in all competitions, spirits will be high in the home dressing room.

After two convincing wins in January, Norwich were brought back down to earth by Burnley last time out, as they lost 3-0.

The Canaries have scored 12 in their last 15 on their travels, winning four in the process, and there is every chance these two teams cancel each other out in a high-scoring battle.

Odds of 10/3 for Draw and Both Teams to Score are too good to turn down, especially considering the recent form of these two sides.

Clarets to continue promotion charge

WhatBurnley v Preston North End

OddsBurnley 1/2, Draw 16/5, Preston 11/2

Vincent Kompany's Burnley will look to showcase their skills once again on home turf when they welcome neighbours Preston North End to Turf Moor.

The Clarets have promotion in their own hands, they are 17 points clear of third-placed Middlesbrough with a game in hand.

Rivals Preston will be doing all they can to stop that from happening, but the signs suggest they may struggle to get the job done.

Burnley have won their previous nine league matches to set the standard in the second tier, while they are unbeaten at home all season in the Championship.

Preston are still on the fringes of the play-offs in 11th, but three defeats in four in all competitions will not have helped their confidence levels under coach Ryan Lowe.

While we expect the hosts to pick up the three points, the stats suggest they may concede on Saturday afternoon.

Burnley have conceded in five of their last 10 at home in the Championship, while Preston have scored nine in five on their travels.

Burnley To Win and Both Teams to Score appeals at 3/1.

OddsCardiff 13/5, Draw 12/5, Middlesbrough 11/10

Just one point keeps Cardiff City out of the Championship relegation zone and they should be up against it when they host high-flying Middlesbrough on Saturday.

The Bluebirds turned to Sabri Lamouchi last month to guide them out of trouble, but they have since lost their previous two matches 1-0 to Luton Town and Hull City.

Cardiff have now lost four on the spin in all competitions, while they have not won a competitive fixture in 13 attempts.

That form spells only relegation and they should struggle to trouble the scoresheet when Michael Carrick's men visit on Saturday.

Boro might miss out on automatic promotion this season, but they are doing all they can to chase down Sheffield United.

Carrick's side have won three of their last four without conceding and a repeat of To Win to Nil is available at 5/2.
