With another busy Saturday on the horizon, we've picked out four games from the Championship for our latest acca, including victories for promotion hopefuls Burnley and Middlesbrough.

There are 11 games in the second tier on Saturday with Coventry and Sunderland kicking off the schedule at 12:30, while the further 10 games are due to get underway at 15:00.

Saturday four-fold acca:

Coventry to win @ 6/5 
Burnley to win and over 2.5 goals @ 6/5
Reading to win @ 1/1 
Middlesbrough to win @ 2/1

Odds were correct at time of writing and are subject to change.

Home form key for Coventry

OddsCoventry 6/5, Draw 23/10, Sunderland 9/4

Coventry struggled to find their feet at the start of the season, failing to win any of their opening seven games, however, they have since settled in and hold an outside chance of securing a top-six spot.

They have been steadily climbing the standings since November and head into this weekend's clash against Sunderland just five points adrift of the playoffs.

It has been performances at home that have led the Sky Blues up the table, picking up 29 of their 45 points at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Mark Robins' side are unbeaten in three at home and have only lost once since 29th October, picking up six wins along the way.

Sunderland are the latest visitors set to try and take something away from Coventry on their own patch.

The Black Cats have promotion ambitions of their own, sitting just a point adrift of the playoffs.

However, they are without a win in two games after drawing at home to Bristol City and losing at Rotherham.

Tuesday's loss at the relegation-threatened Millers stands out here, leading to the feeling that Sunderland could come up short when they hit the road again on Saturday.

It's also worth highlighting that Sunderland tend to struggle when travelling to Coventry, failing to win any of their last nine visits, and so the home win appeals at 6/5.

Terriers in for tough afternoon

WhatBurnley v Huddersfield
WhereTurf Moor, Burnley
When15:00, Saturday 25th February 2023
OddsBurnley 2/5, Draw 10/3, Huddersfield 15/2

Huddersfield's hopes of beating relegation were raised last weekend when they came from behind to beat Birmingham 2-1 in Neil Warnock's first game in charge.

However, a trip to league leaders Burnley on Saturday is unlikely to yield another positive result.

Burnley are 12 points clear at the top of the table and hold a 16-point advantage over third-placed Middlesbrough as automatic promotion is looking almost guaranteed.

They have lost just twice all season and both of those defeats have come on the road, with their record at Turf Moor reading; 12 wins and five draws.

A 10-match winning run on their own patch came to an end in their most recent home game when Watford earned a point in a 1-1 draw, while they were stifled again in midweek by a late Millwall leveller on the road. 

But Huddersfield certainly aren't at the level of the Hornets and the West Yorkshire side have picked up the fewest points of any side on the road.

The Terriers have won just two of their 16 away engagements, losing 10 and only Reading (30) have conceded more than their tally of 27.

That doesn't bode well for this trip to Lancashire as they prepare to face a Burnley side with the best attacking record in the league.

Burnley have registered a Championship-high 64 goals and 10 of their 17 matches at Turf Moor have featured at least three goals.

With that in mind, there's plenty of value to be had in adding a Burnley win with over 2.5 goals to this acca at odds of 6/5 can be a nice booster.

OddsReading 1/1, Draw 5/2, Blackpool 11/4

Reading made a strong start to the term, winning five of their opening eight games, and looked like potential candidates to challenge for a top-six berth.

However, those hopes have slipped away as the weeks have passed, largely due to their struggles on the road.

The Royals have the second-worst record away from home with just 11 of their 41 points coming on their travels.

After losing at Cardiff last Friday, Paul Ince will be delighted to be heading back to the Select Car Leasing Stadium on Saturday when Blackpool visit.

Ince spent a year in charge of the Seasiders between 2013 and 2014 but he was sacked after winning just 12 of his 42 games.

He watched his side lose 1-0 at Bloomfield Road earlier this season but should be able to delight in a victory this time around.

Mick McCarthy's recent arrival at Blackpool doesn't appear to have had the desired impact, picking up just one win from six outings in the league.

Tuesday's 1-0 loss at Blackburn leaves the Tangerines sitting just one place off the foot of the table and four points from safety.

They have lost four in a row away from home and are without a victory on the road since 29th October and Ince can gain a win over his old side now at 1/1.

Boro showing no signs of slowing

WhatWest Brom v Middlesbrough
WhereThe Hawthorns, West Bromwich
When15:00, Saturday 25th February 2023
OddsWest Brom 13/10, Draw 23/10, Middlesbrough 2/1

Third-placed Middlesbrough are edging closer to cementing their spot in the playoffs and they could still even push for automatic promotion.

A run of five successive wins has seen Boro move just four points shy of second-placed Sheffield United, although the South Yorkshire club do have a game in hand.

Boro sat 21st when Michael Carrick took charge on 29th October and they have lost just three of the following 17 fixtures.

All three of those losses have come on the road and that's why Boro are priced at 2/1 in the Full Time Market ahead of their trip to West Brom.

The Baggies also have their sights set on promotion but they are currently five points adrift of the top six.

Carlos Corberan's appointment saw a major spike in performances but they have dropped off over recent weeks.

West Brom are without a win in three and have only earned one victory from their five outings in the second tier.

It appears that Leeds' recent interest in Corberan may have slightly unsettled the camp at the Hawthorns and Boro look primed to take advantage.
