GAMES continue to come thick and fast with a full npower card on Monday and Premier League fixtures on Tuesday and Wednesday.

So as well as picking sides in form you have to consider fitness and fatigue when making your selections.

There are some cracking games in the Championship with Middlesbrough v Norwich, QPR v Bristol City and Cardiff v Leeds the pick of the bunch.

They are all difficult to call and in fact there is only one home side who are odds on in the whole division.

That's QPR and after recent defeats to Watford and Norwich they have little appeal at a best 8-15 with the likes of William Hill and Paddy Power against a City side who have won their last four without conceding.

City hammered Cardiff 3-0 at the weekend and will have backers at 6-1 with Ladbrokes and Coral.

I can certainly seeing them avoiding defeat, although their best results come at home, and they are 6-4 with bet365 plus a goal and 8-15 plus two.

Norwich have won six out seven to climb to third in the table but face a Boro side showing signs of improvement. They came within seconds of beating in-form Leeds at Elland Road on Saturday and if Tony Mowbray's men can avoid giving away stupid goals I can see them picking up a point. The draw pays 5-2 with Chandler.

The Cardiff clash is tomorrow with Leeds desperate to avenge a 4-0 home bashing earlier in the season but more of that game on Tuesday.

On a difficult card the best bets could be Reading at home to managerless Burnley. The Turf Moor men played well to beat Sheffield United on Saturday but Reading are strong at home and I like them at 21-20 with Paddy Power.

Micky Adams' could mark his first home game in charge of the Blades with a win against Doncaster while Crystal Palace may get a lift from the sacking of George Burley and beat fellow strugglers Preston at Selhurst Park.

Palace, who are unbeaten in four at home, are 21-10 with Chandler and William Hill against a side who have had five loan stars recalled by Man United and Stoke since boss Darren Ferguson was sacked while striker Jon Parkin is heading for Cardiff.

Portsmouth couldn't fill their bench in the 3-0 defeat at Watford on Saturday and are likely to be struggling to do so against Hull so this could be a draw.

Watford have won four in a row in convincing fashion so back them at 13-10 with Coral to beat a Scunthorpe outfit who have lost seven out of 10 at home this season.

Barnsley should have ended Nottingham Forest's 30-match unbeaten home record when they led 2-0 at the City Ground but the draw was still a decent show and they can follow up by beating Coventry at home. The Tykes are 11-8 with boylesports and Coral.

Forest head to struggling Ipswich and I can see Billy Davies' chalking up just their third away win of the season. Forest are a best 9-5 with Ladbrokes.

Derby got a boost from beating Preston to end a poor run but Millwall will make it tough at Pride Park and another draw is on the cards.
Finally, take Swansea to hold Leicester when the two in-form sides meet at the Walkers Stadium.

In League One, it's difficult to ignore a Southampton side who are really motoring just now. They climbed to second in the table after an impressive 4-0 win against Exeter at the weekend and should continue to push for top sport by beating Dagenham away. Saints look to have the best squad in the division and are decent value at 5-6 with the likes of Paddy Power and Stan James.

Brentford travel to a Bournemouth side struggling for goals after sending Josh McQuoid on loan to Millwall. Brett Pitman was a big loss at the start of the season but McQuoid's sale has hit them harder and on-form Brentford can take advantage. Brentford are unbeaten in five and look big at a best 13-5 with Chandler.

Leaders Brighton travel to an Exeter side who beat Sheffield Wednesday 5-1 on their last home outing. However, the Southampton defeat could have taken the wind out of their sails and with Brighton back on track after a 5-0 rout of Orient this could end all square. Best bet could be both teams to score at 8-11 with Skybet.

In League Two best bets look to be Northampton whose good run was ended at Crewe at the weekend. However, they should get back on track against Lincoln and are a best 4-5 with Ladbrokes.

There's an interesting clash between Wycombe and Gillingham at Adams Park. The Gills have won four in a row but face a Wycombe side who can match that record. Home advantage could swing it Wycombe's way and they are 11-10 with Chandler.
