There's more Championship action for Paul Robinson tonight and it begins with both teams scoring at Pride Park. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Derby v Norwich @ 4/5
- Back Nottingham Forest @ 9/10
- Back BTTS in Blackburn v Sheffield United @ 4/5

The Acca pays approximately 5/1

Norwich to give Derby something to think about

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Derby v Norwich @ 4/5 - KO 19:45 BST

The Rams fell to a disappointing 1-0 defeat at Bolton on Saturday, so for all their EFL Cup heroics at Old Trafford on the Tuesday before, in the Championship they have now fallen out of the top six.

The Canaries are flying at present with five straight wins in all competitions, and they are unbeaten in seven. They followed up their 4-3 win at Wycombe in the cup with a 1-0 success over Wigan at Carrow Road at the weekend.

This match has goals written all over it to me, as the two teams can play some good, attacking football. Derby's most recent outing at home saw this selection land, and the same can be said for four of Norwich's five on the road this season.

All smiles at the City Ground

Bet 2: Back Nottingham Forest @ 9/10 - KO 19:45 BST

The hosts spent big money in the summer, so given that fact, a position of 11th after 10 matches isn't anything special. Aitor Karanka is in the process of building a strong, hard to beat side though, and that is highlighted by the fact that Forest have only lost once this season.

Drawing too many games - six out of 10 - has been their problem, but they will fancy their chances of taking all three points this evening. Three of their last four at the City Ground have ended in victory, and their opponents are in miserable form.

Millwall have lost four on the bounce in all competitions, and in the league it's one point from a possible 21 of late. They were beaten to nil in their last two away games, and they lost again at home on Saturday - conceding three goals.

Entertainment expected at Ewood Park

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Blackburn v Sheffield United @ 4/5 - KO 19:45 BST

It's Lancashire versus Yorkshire at Ewood Park tonight and there is a strong chance of there being goals at both ends.

This selection would have landed in six of Blackburn's last seven outings in all competitions and six of Sheffield United's last nine.

The Blades are up to fourth courtesy of back to back 3-2 victories, and the hosts have also had two 3-2 scorelines in their last three games - one in their favour and one against. Their other fixture - at home to Nottingham Forest - ended 2-2 at the weekend.
