The Daily Acca: Blues to continue for Derby

Derby County manager - Phillip Cocu
Phillip Cocu must be questioning his decision to move to Pride Park

It was only a lack of Wigan goal that denied Paul Robinson a 22/1 Daily Acca win yesterday, but he's hoping his luck will change for this 12/1 shot. Here are his selections:

- Back Birmingham @ 9/4
- Back Swansea @ 5/6
- Back Coventry @ 6/5

The Acca pays approximately 12/1

A week to forget for Derby

Bet 1: Back Birmingham @ 9/4 - KO 15:00 BST

I wouldn't have been tipping the Blues for this game under normal circumstances, but with everything going on at Derby, they are a good bet at 9/4.

The Rams have been in the news for all the wrong reasons this week, and this afternoon they will take the field without the services of some of their players, and with a big cloud hanging over them.

Phillip Cocu's men aren't in good form either. They have gone seven without a win in all competitions, and it's just three points from a possible 12 on this ground this year.

Birmingham won at Charlton in their most recent away match, and that was their second victory on the road this term.

Reading to be beaten in Wales

Bet 2: Back Swansea @ 5/6 - KO 15:00 BST

The Swans had set a blistering early pace in the Championship, but things have stalled slightly of late. They were beaten 1-0 at home by Nottingham Forest, before drawing 0-0 at Bristol City. They then exited the League Cup in the week at Watford.

It is far too soon to write them off though, as those three fixtures are all tough ones. Before the Forest defeat, Steve Cooper's side had a 100% record at the Liberty this season, and their opponents today are out of form.

Reading have been beaten in their last three Championship outings, and in Charlton, Middlesbrough and Blackburn, they haven't exactly faced the cream of the division. Away from home it's two defeats out of four, and this is arguably the toughest test they will have faced.

Sky Blues to maintain their 100% home record

Bet 3: Back Coventry @ 6/5 - KO 15:00 BST

There are only two teams who are yet to be beaten in League One this season, and one of them is Coventry City.

Despite not having their own home, the Sky Blues are second in the table, and they have won five and drawn four of their nine matches to date.

At their temporary home of St Andrew's, Mark Robins' men have played five and won five, and they are averaging just shy of two goals per game there.

Doncaster are doing well themselves, as they are in seventh place with 15 points, and have only been beaten once this year. They have only played twice away from home though - both draws - and they have only won two away games in calendar year 2019.
