Tuesday's edition of the Daily Acca features three matches from the Championship and Paul Robinson is predicting plenty of goals at the Stadium of Light. Here are his selections:

- Back the Draw in Bristol City v Birmingham @ 12/5
- Back Over 2.5 Goals in Sunderland v Norwich @ 9/10
- Back the Draw in Aston Villa v Cardiff @ 23/10

The Acca pays approximately 20/1

Blues to pick up another vital point

Bet 1: Back the Draw in Bristol City v Birmingham @ 12/5 - KO 19:45 BST

The Robins have hindered their promotion chances by losing their last two matches. They have now dropped to eighth in the Championship and are for points adrift of the play-off places.

Birmingham are digging themselves out of danger under Garry Monk as they have taken 10 points from their last four matches. They are up to 20th, but Barnsley in 22nd are only three behind and they have a game in hand.

Even though Lee Johnson's side have home advantage this evening, I quite fancy the Blues to be able to take a point. They aren't conceding many goals any more and Bristol City have netted just three in five.


All or nothing at the Stadium of Light

Bet 2: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Sunderland v Norwich @ 9/10 - KO 19:45 BST

Things are looking beak for Sunderland and back to back relegations appear to be inevitable. They are joint bottom of the table with Burton on 32 points, and they are seven points behind Birmingham.

Norwich are in mid-table with no real possibility of going up or going down. They have won two and drawn two of their last four matches, but the one common trend has been goals.

The Canaries' last four scorelines were 3-2, 0-2, 4-1 and 3-1, and three of their last four away from Carrow Road have gone over 2.5.

The Black Cats absolutely have to go all out for the victory, so they will go on the attack and three of their last four at home have also seen this selection land.


Tight match expected at Villa Park

Bet 3: Back the Draw in Aston Villa v Cardiff @ 23/10 - KO 19:45 BST

There could be explosive scenes at Villa Park tonight if Neil Warnock is still in the mood he was in at the end of his side's defeat to Wolves on Friday. His team are made of stern stuff though, so I expect them to bounce back here with a solid point.

Steve Bruce's men have blown their automatic promotion hopes by losing three of their last five games and while they will still make the play-offs, they will want to be in better form for them.

Cardiff have Fulham breathing down their necks in second, but they still hold a two point advantage and also have a game in hand. They will be desperate to avoid back to back defeats, so I expect a cautious approach from Warnock, and they haven't lost away from home since New Year's Day.
