Middlesbrough vs Nottingham Forest
We have a trio of Championship games in our acca and first up we head up the A1 to The Riverside Stadium for a clash between two teams that are bang in form. Both teams have changed their manager's this season and it's worked a treat for them. Chris Wilder's team have won three of their last four and have risen to 9th in the league table. Similarly, Forest sacked manager Chris Hughton and new boss Steve Cooper has brought about a big chance in fortune; dragging the Tricky Trees from the bottom of the Championship to 7th - one point off the playoffs.
Boro have been fairly solid at home but their games have resulted in a lot of goals - 28 total in 12 games, of which 50% of these have ended in BTTS. Forest are one of the form teams in the division away from home and have picked up 19 points on the road. They do tend to leak goals though - 64% of their away fixtures have seen both teams scoring.
Millwall vs Swansea
Next up we head to south east London and a mid-table clash at The New Den. Millwall and Swansea are separated by only three points and both teams will be hoping for a win here. Neither side is playing particularly well at the moment, each have won just one of their last six.
Millwall have scored in every one of those games though with BTTS landing each time. They lead the league in home BTTS rankings and a whopping 8/11 (73%) games at home have seen it land. Swansea have seen a relatively high 55% of away games see both teams score with 31 goals combined in just 11 games on the road.
Preston vs Sheffield United
We fly up the M6 to Deepdale for our last Championship pick. Preston are another club who have dispensed with their manager after a barren patch and will be hoping new charge Ryan Lowe can drag them away from relegation worries. Sheffield United sacked highly rated Slavisa Jokanovic on 25th November and replaced him with Paul Heckingbottom who has overseen a dramatic improvement, including four straight wins, which has seen them move only three points off the play-offs.
Preston are joint top for home BTTS with the aforementioned Millwall with 8/11 games ending that way. The Blades have seen a huge 31 goals scored in their 12 Championship games on the road and 50% of those have ended with both teams scoring.
AFC Wimbledon vs Charlton
Down into League One we go and our old favourites AFC Wimbledon. We selected them in our Acca last week but the game was postponed due to Covid protocols. This mid-table clash sees 12th placed Charlton visit the Dons at Plough Lane. Wimbledon are only five points off the relegation zone and will be looking to pick up points here.
Wimbledon are BTTS masters in this league with 7 of 9 games (78%) ending this way and 30 goals in total have been scored at the Lane. Charlton have seen 25 goals scored on their 11 away games thus far and 64% of these have ended with neither team keeping a clean sheet.
