ONE former Celtic star will be hoping for a huge favour from another on Bank Holiday Monday as Norwich fight Cardiff for a place in the Premier League.

Paul Lambert's Canaries hold the upperhand and a victory at Portsmouth combined with a Cardiff defeat at home to Middlesbrough will clinch their place in the top flight.

This is one that should go to the final day as on paper Cardiff have the easier task.

However, Middlesbrough can beat the best on their day and have goals in them as they showed when they won 4-2 at Hull last week.

Portsmouth, on the other hand, have netted just one goal in their last four games and don't look to have the firepower to trouble a Norwich side with 18 in their last six.

I fancy Norwich, who kick off after the Cardiff game has finished, at a best 11-10 at totesport.

Simeone Jackson was the hat-trick against Derby last week and is 11-2 with bet365 and Coral to score first and 13-8 with boylesports to hit the target during the 90 minutes.

Cardiff seem a tad short at 4-7 with the likes of William Hill and bet365 against a Boro outfit who have lost just once in 10. The Welsh might edge a nervy one but best bet here should be both teams to score at 5-6 with Skybet.

Jay Bothroyd is a class act at this level and is 4-1 with Ladbrokes to score first and 11-10 at Coral to strike at any time.
