‘Tactical’ Treble, Saturday, October 29

‘Tactical’ Treble, Saturday, October 29  Cardiff City versus Wigan Athletic

Cardiff City have picked up seven points from a possible nine since Neil Warnock replaced Paul Trollope earlier this month, suggesting the Bluebirds may have turned a corner. Warnock was quick to warn against rising expectations at the Cardiff City Stadium but, at 11/10, his side look decent value to see off a Wigan side that has yet to win away from the DW Stadium this season. Indeed, the Latics have beaten just Wolves and Blackburn in what’s been a frustrating campaign so far and may find their efforts thwarted once again.

Ipswich Town versus Rotherham United

Ipswich have hardly set the world on fire so far this season, but have won three and drawn three of their eight home games in the Championship and, at 8/13, should be too good for bottom side Rotherham, who have won just one game all season and lost their last seven in a row. The appointment of Kenny Jackett and the signing of Peter Odemwingie may ultimately improve the Millers’ fortunes, but they remain vulnerable.

Reading versus Nottingham Forest

Reading needed a late winner to beat Rotherham at the New Stadium last Saturday but, while the Royals have failed to convert possession into goals in recent outings, they face a Nottingham Forest side that has picked up just two points away from home in the current Championship campaign. Indeed, the Reds have won just once in eight games so, at 19/20, Reading look the team to side with on this occasion.

Selections: Cardiff City (11/10), Ipswich Town (8/13), Reading (19/20), 1-point Win Treble (5.61/1 with Bet365)
