Ally’s Acca: Leicester, Barnsley, Southampton and Blackpool all to win – (was 27/4) NOW 8/1 – CLAIM HERE

1. Leicester to win away at Coventry (Sat, 12:30pm)

Leicester make the trip to the West Midlands for the M69 derby having won eight of their last nine matches, drawing the other, and without defeat since November, winning nine of their 11 matches since then.

The Foxes currently sit 10 points clear at the top of the Championship table, while Coventry sit down in eighth place, three points off the top six, and were held in their last home league game, conceding a 93rd minute equaliser against a mangerless Swansea side down in 17th.

Leicester have won the last three meetings between the two sides, including earlier this season on the opening day, losing just once against the Sky Blues in their last 17 games, dating back to 2002.

2. Barnsley to beat Bristol Rovers at home (Sat, 3pm)

Barnsley head into the weekend sixth in the League One table, occupying the final play-off position, but do have a game in hand over Oxford, who sit three points and one place above them.

The Tykes head into Saturday afternoon’s match having not tasted defeat in the league since November, eight matches ago, and are unbeaten in their home stadium in all competitions in their last seven.

Bristol Rovers make the trip to South Yorkshire four league positions and nine points behind their opponents, whilst also being winless in their last three games away from home, conceding three goals in each of their last two league games in the road.

3. Southampton to beat Sheffield Wednesday at home (Sat, 3pm)

Southampton welcome Sheffield Wednesday to the Hampshire coast having not tasted defeat in any competition since September, winning 13 and drawing six of their 19 matches since.

The Saints’ outstanding form has seen them climb into the race for automatic promotion, where they currently sit third in the Championship table, just three points behind Ipswich, who face a tricky match against Sunderland this weekend.

Sheffield Wednesday have occupied the relegation zone for almost the entire season following their promotion last year via the League One play-offs, and the Owls have lost 10 of their 13 away matches in the league this season ahead of their trip to the south coast.

4. Blackpool to beat Exeter at home (Sat, 3pm)

Blackpool continue their hunt for the play-off places in League One by welcoming Exeter to Bloomfield Road, having won six of their last 10 matches in all competitions, including a gutsy 2-2 draw away from home against Premier League side Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup.

The Tangerines have won their last six home matches in all competitions, and boast the best home record out of anyone in the third tier, leaving them 8th in the table, currently just four points off the top six, while Exeter have lost eight of their last nine on the road.

The Devon side head into the weekend in 20th position, just one place and three points above the relegation zone and without a win against Blackpool in any competition since 1989.
