AFTER a short break I'm back in search of goals this weekend. In an attempt to get back to winning ways I'm shaking things up a wee bit this week with a mixed acca.

Wycombe v Yeovil – Over 2.5 Goals

Despite sitting 8th in the table Wycombe Wanderers are still 2nd top scorers in the division and have amassed more shots on target than any other side. On Saturday they host Yeovil who co-incidentally have faced most shots on target in the division and have lost the second highest number of goals.

So it should be a straightforward win for Wycombe right? Well neither side have been in great form, and both have won just one in seven in the league (W1 D3 L3) so you'd be hard pushed to get on side with Wycombe at odds of 4/7 or thereabouts despite Yeovil's abysmal away record (4 points from a possible 27).

Instead I'm backing there to be over 2.5 goals. They may well all come from Wycombe but I'd rather have the pleasure of not caring who scores them in a match that should see the net bulge on several occasions.

Dundee Utd to score 2+

Csaba Laszlo's arrival couldn't inspire Dundee United to a win against Crusuders in the Betfred Cup in his first game in charge but a routine win away to Falkirk looks to have got the Csaba show on the road and they should follow-up with another three points away to Brechin City.

The hosts have yet to win in the league all season and have lost seven on the bounce. United won 5-0 at Glebe Park last season and should be good enough to rack up a comfortable win again this time to maintain their lead over St Mirren at the top of the table. I'm tempted to back them to score three or more but have opted to play it a bit safer with 2+

Watford to score (Newcastle no clean sheet)

Despite being just outside the top half of the table I remain unconvinced that Newcastle will finish outside the bottom six. Twelve of their 14 points have been against teams in the bottom six and their three clean sheets have come against Palace, West Ham and Swansea – all of whom occupy the relegation spots currently.

Although just four points ahead of the Toon, Watford look more than capable of getting something at St James' Park. One of the more remarkable stats of the season is that the Hornets have have scored exactly two goals in all six away matches in the Premier League.

They're 2/1 to score two or more again and that's hugely tempting but since I'm going for a permed acca this week let's take the 2/5 on them just getting on the scoresheet.

Cardiff v Nottm Forest – Both Teams to score

We should see goals at the City Ground on Sunday. Visitors Cardiff could be seven points off the top of the table by the time the game kicks-off so will go to Forest with every intention of winning. And so they should – they've a tremendous record against the Tricky Trees having won eight of the last ten encounters.

Forest will be looking to build on their good home form. They've won the last four on the bounce on their own patch and have scored in eight of home home matches.

Both teams have scored in six of the last eight meetings and I expect they will again on Sunday.


  • Wycombe v Yeovil – Over 2.5 Goals 8/13
  • Cardiff v Nottm Forest – Both Teams to score 8/11
  • Watford to score (Newcastle no clean sheet) 2/5
  • Dundee Utd to score 2+ 1/2
  • Best Odds: Back all four, and 4x trebles = 5 pts returns 20.96pts at Bet365
