Championship Trading Focus: 22nd Sept 2018

Championship football tips


With Wednesday’s games still to come we are going to tread a little carefully this weekend and just provide a few stats for you to use if you want to trade. The sides are settling down a little now with Leeds continuing to look strong, but the season is still early and there are many challengers sitting in behind.

Saturday 22nd September 2018

Middlesbrough v Swansea

Boro play Bolton in midweek and could be sitting in second place when they kick off here. They look a typical Tony Pulis side and are set up as tough to beat so if they go ahead, particularly at home, they should take all three points. Swansea have been a little unlucky and were beaten by an offside goal in midweek, but they are struggling in front of goal and that is not ideal against a side like Middlesbrough. The two most recent meetings today were in the Premiership with a 0-0 draw and a 3-0 win for Boro at home and I think that Middlesbrough to win to nil could pay dividends here.

QPR v Norwich

The two have had four recent meetings today at this level and all four were home wins. Three of the four games were Over and with QPR unbeaten in three and Norwich looking to have turned the corner, goals could be the order of the day so either Overs or both teams to score.

Derby v Brentford

How Derby did not beat Blackburn in midweek is a mystery after creating so many chances but unless you stick the chances away, this league will come back and bite you. Brentford are a decent side and currently sit in the top six and have been scoring goals whilst defending solidly. Recent head to head in Derby favours the home side and Brentford have not scored on the last three visits. On current form it has to be the visitors but not at the price quoted so if you must play this game, both teams to score might be the way to go.

Ipswich v Bolton

In the last eight meetings today, four have finished level so there is never much between these two particularly in recent years and neither are in much form at present, with Ipswich sitting bottom and only four draws to their name. Everything about this fixture says draw except for recent head to head stats at Portman Road where the games ended 2-0, 2-0, 1-0, 1-0 and 1-0 so trading correct scores around 1-0 and 2-0 may pay off.

Leeds v Birmingham

Leeds are the “in team” in this league and despite Birmingham winning twice on their last three visits, it would be a major achievement on current form to even get a draw. Leeds should be followed until they slip up.

Sheffield Utd v Preston

These two met three times last season including once in the FA Cup last season with all three games ending 1-0, two to Preston and one to the Blades. This should be another tight affair with preference just for the home side but perhaps the Unders is the way to go here.
