Our latest four-fold accumulator, which pays out at 36/1, primarily focuses on clubs chasing a spot in the top six with Luton Town, Millwall and Sunderland all picked to win, while Birmingham City are fancied to pile further pressure on relegation-threatened Wigan Athletic.

Hatters look to improve on home form

WhatLuton Town v Swansea City
WhereKenilworth Road, Luton
When15:00, Saturday 4th March
OddsLuton 1/1, Draw 5/2, Swansea 11/4

Traditionally, Kenilworth Road has been a tough place to visit, but Luton Town have performed better on the road this season - claiming 31 of 54 points on their travels.

The Hatters sit sixth and are well in the hunt for a play-off berth, but Rob Edwards will be eager to strengthen their home record in order to stay clear of their rivals.

They have failed to win in two at home, drawing with Millwall and losing to Burnley, but the visit of Swansea City, who are 15th, offers a great opportunity to pick up three points.

Even with 12 games left to play, Swansea's campaign is starting to fizzle out as they look unlikely to bridge the 11-point gap to the top-six and are 12 points clear of the drop zone.

The Welsh outfit have won just one of their last seven Championship outings, beating second from bottom Blackpool, and they've lost four times during that sequence.

On the road, Swansea have suffered successive defeats to Sheff Utd and Blackburn without scoring and they look set for another blank when they head to 1/1 Luton.

Millwall to keep building momentum

WhatMillwall v Norwich City
WhereThe Den, London
When15:00, Saturday 4th March
OddsMillwall 6/4, Draw 23/10, Norwich 15/8

Millwall are also serious play-off contenders and they start this weekend's round of fixtures sitting fifth, clear of sixth-placed Luton on goal difference, and two ahead of opponents Norwich City, who are seventh.

The Lions have a big opportunity to secure further breathing space if they can prevail on home soil against the improving Canaries.

Gary Rowett's side are unbeaten in four and haven't lost in 11 at home in the league, a run which stretches back to 14th September and includes a draw with leaders Burnley and a victory over second-placed Sheffield United.

They have a reputation for being hard to break down on their own patch, boasting the best defensive record at home with just 12 conceded in 16 games.

That suggests Norwich could come unstuck as they look to keep moving in a positive direction.

City replaced Dean Smith with David Wagner in January and the former Huddersfield boss has led them to five victories from nine outings, losing two and drawing one.

But the Canaries have failed to win in two on the road, losing at Bristol City and drawing at bottom club Wigan. It's that last result, in particular, that stands out when taking on Millwall at 6/4 in this four-fold.

Blues to boost survival hopes

WhatWigan Athletic v Birmingham City
WhereDW Stadium, Wigan
When15:00, Saturday 4th March 2023
OddsWigan 13/10, Draw 11/5, Birmingham 9/4

Birmingham City are seven points clear of the relegation zone and can pull further clear on Saturday when they head to 24th-placed Wigan Athletic.

The Blues have lost four in a row and are in danger of being dragged back into a scrap so they'll feel this clash comes at just the right time.

Wigan can only boast three wins at home this term, losing 10 of their 17 outings, and they've conceded a league-high 30 goals which is combined with scoring a joint-low of 12 goals.

It's fair to say Birmingham's away record doesn't jump off the page, winning just one of the last six, but that looks set to improve on Saturday and they are worth siding with at 9/4.

Sunderland seek return to winning ways

WhatSunderland v Stoke City
WhereStadium of Light, Sunderland
When15:00, Saturday 4th March 2023
OddsSunderland 5/4, Draw 9/4, Stoke 9/4

Sunderland are in danger of seeing their play-off hopes slip away if they don't bounce back after successive defeats.

They are ninth in the standings and five points shy of the top six following losses to Rotherham United and Coventry City, while they had been held to a draw by Bristol City before these successive defeats.

But the Black Cats can call on a strong recent record at home as they look to recover when Stoke City head to the Stadium of Light.

Tony Mowbray's side are unbeaten in three at home and showed their ability to pull off big results at the Stadium of Light when sealing a win over third-placed Middlesbrough.

Stoke, much like Swansea, don't appear to have much left to play for with a top six finish out of reach and relegation not looking like it will be a concern.

That is seemingly leading to a lack of motivation and they've lost two of their last three, including a defeat against 23rd-placed Blackpool.

Sunderland ran out 1-0 winners in the reverse and are a nice boost to this acca at 5/4.
