5 Championship Tips to Watch This Weekend - Gameweek 5

Latest News

Blackburn vs Forest: Adam Armstrong

Chris Hughton will manage his first Nottingham Forest match this weekend, as he takes a struggling side up to Ewood Park to face Blackburn Rovers.

After parting company with Sabri Lamouchi in the aftermath of a 2-1 home defeat to Bristol City, Forest sit in the relegation zone on zero points. Blackburn have made a solid start in comparison, as they currently occupy the play-off places and are unbeaten in three matches.

Adam Armstrong has made a brilliant start to the campaign, scoring five in four games already, following on from his impressive tally last season of 16. Tony Mowbray’s side are far and away the league’s early top scorers with 11, and playing against a lowly Forest side, Armstrong will fancy his chances of adding to his numbers.

Armstrong to be Blackburn’s first scorer is priced at 7/2, whilst Armstrong to score and Blackburn to win is at 7/5 with Sky Bet.

Wycombe vs Millwall: Tom Bradshaw

Newly-promoted Wycombe Wanderers, still on the hunt for a first-ever point at this level, welcome Millwall to Adams Park this Saturday afternoon.

Not only are Wycombe pointless so far, but they are also still yet to find the net, and they now have to face a Millwall side who have already kept two clean sheets in four this season and boasted one of the best defensive records in the Championship last season, conceding just 51, which ranked them sixth.

Millwall frontman Tom Bradshaw got off the mark for the season before the international break, despite falling to defeat to Swansea. With the London outfit favourites for this one and Wycombe’s inefficiency in front of goal, we are backing Bradshaw to score anytime at 9/5.

Barnsley vs Bristol City: Nahki Wells

Bristol City put their 100% record on the line at Oakwell this Saturday when they face a trip to managerless Barnsley.

Dean Holden’s side entered the October international break on top of the Championship as just one of two teams with four wins from four, alongside Reading. Barnsley, on the other hand, have just a solitary point and sit one place above the relegation zone, with caretaker manager Adam Murray set to take charge for a second time, after failing to win in five games during his last stint in temporary charge.

Nahki Wells has scored 18 times last season and seeing as Barnsley have scored just once in their opening four games, Wells to score and win is priced at 13/2.

Swansea vs Huddersfield: Andre Ayew

Early high-flyers Swansea City face Huddersfield Town at the Liberty Stadium this Saturday, as the hosts look to continue their unbeaten start to the season.

Swansea sit fourth, after three wins and a draw from their opening four matches while Huddesfield have improved on a disappointing start which saw them lose their first two fixtures, by picking up four points from their last two games.

Andre Ayew had an excellent scoring season for the Welsh side last season, netting 16 times as he helped propel Swansea into the play-offs. With his striking partner Rhian Brewster now back in the Premier League, Ayew is the main man for the attack in the central striking role, where he has been ever-present this season.

Ayew bagged a brace last weekend on international duty with Ghana, back him to continue his form in front of goal at 6/4 here with Sky Bet.

Brentford vs Coventry: Ivan Toney

Brentford will be hoping to improve their fortunes at home to recently promoted Coventry City this weekend, if they are to make another promotion push this time around.

It has been a disappointing start for Brentford, as they sit 15th after four games. After losing Ollie Watkins and with Said Benrahma set to leave, it has been a turbulent time with much change at the club, including moving to a new stadium.

However, the money made from Watkins was used to invest in Ivan Toney, signed from Peterborough for a reported £5 million and he scored twice in their 4-2 defeat to Preston, taking his tally to three so foar.

Despite the poor start, only four sides have scored more than Brentford, and they have scored in their last six matches, with Toney looking like he has already settled in, back him to score here at 5/4.
