The Daily Acca: West Brom to boost their top two hopes

Leeds United manager - Marcelo Bielsa
Marcelo Bielsa is seeing his team's season slip away

Paul Robinson delivered with a 7/2 success yesterday and he's aiming to head into the weekend on a 20/1 winner. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Cagliari v Inter @ 10/11
- Back West Brom @ 23/10
- Back Girona @ 12/5

The Acca pays approximately 20/1

Goals at both ends in Italy

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Cagliari v Inter @ 10/11 - KO 19:30 GMT

Inter come into the game on the back of a 3-3 draw at Fiorentina, which under normal circumstances would be classed as a decent point, but the fact that they led 3-1 with less than 20 minutes to go, it must go down as a disappointment.

I expect them to get back to winning ways at Cagliari this evening, but the hosts don't often fail to score at home - three blanks in nine - and Inter themselves rarely fail to score away from San Siro, which makes BTTS the bet to have.

Leeds to be beaten at home

Bet 2: Back West Brom @ 23/10 - KO 19:45 GMT

Both Leeds and West Brom are pushing for automatic promotion, but their hopes were hit in their last games as Leeds were beaten 1-0 at QPR on Tuesday, while West Brom lost at home to Sheffield United at the weekend.

The Baggies have a tremendous away record though and I do quite fancy Darren Moore's side to pick up the three points. They have won their last four on the bounce away from the Hawthorns and prior to their 2-1 loss at Ewood Park, they had won their previous four too.

Leeds will be a tough nut to crack, but Norwich and Hull have won here since Christmas, so it can be done.

Girona to maintain their upturn in results

Bet 3: Back Girona @ 12/5 - KO 20:00 GMT

The selection had been in the midst of a terrible run of form that had seen them go 13 matches in all competitions without a victory. They ended that in emphatic style with a 2-1 win at Real Madrid, and they followed that up with a solid point against an in-form, Real Sociedad.

Tonight they travel to a Real Vallecano team who are second from bottom of La Liga, and who have lost their last four outings. At home it's just one point from a possible nine of late, and they have only kept one clean sheet in front of their own fans this term.
