EFL: The Shrews Blues, Courtesy of Brown

The Championship Friday night has a double-header which includes a London derby between Millwall and QPR that deserves absolutely no air time whatsoever, and more interestingly, Cardiff v Preston in south Wales.

EFL: Forest Away Hoodoo Continues and Home Comforts for Clarkey

The Championship Friday night’s clash of Norwich and Brentford just has that “look” about it, doesn’t it?

Just one clean sheet between the two in each of their last seven … Continue reading

The Championship Returns…Plus a Shocking TOWIE Pun

The Championship There’s a Friday night double-header to kick off our betting weekend, and I can’t see past a Sheffield United and Preston double against Burton and Bolton respectively.

EFL: A Forest Shutout and An Acca That’s As Easy As 1-2-3

The Championship Bolton Wanderers claimed their first win and first goals in eight games in their 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday last weekend, and are a great price at 2/1 to make it two in a row against perennial away strugglers QPR.
