Form sides face Cottage showdown

538

Fulham and Aston Villa meet at Craven Cottage in the Championship game of the weekend, with both sides bang in form in recent weeks.

The Cottagers had won four league games in a row before being held to a 1-1 draw at Bolton last time out, while the visiting Villans have taken maximum points from their last seven Championship outings.

Villa have conceded only three goals in that perfect run, so 14/5 to keep a clean sheet at Craven Cottage is a long shot which could tempt you in.

Both teams to score at 10/13 might offer a small return of both teams play to their attacking potential, while the visitors from the Midlands will be desperate to win the game and strengthen their hold on the second automatic promotion place.

Therefore an away win at 12/5 is also something to consider, with Steve Bruce having started to get Villa exactly where they need to be to return to the Premier League.

Elsewhere, Cardiff City play host to Middlesbrough, with the last three meetings of the two sides in south Wales having all been settled by a single goal.

The hosts are 23/4 to claim a 1-0 victory on Saturday, while a 1-0 Boro triumph at 7/1 certainly offers plenty of value.

Runaway Championship leaders Wolves have been in seemingly unstoppable form for most of the season, but they face a very tricky trip to play-off chasing Preston North End.

The Lilywhites have only been beaten once in their last 15 league games to lift themselves to within three points of the top six.

With that form in mind, they may just be the team to temporarily halt the Wolves bandwagon and 51/20 for the hosts to win at Deepdale has plenty of appeal.
