EFL football tips for Saturday 12 09 20

Throughout the 2020/21 season, we will be tracking the profit/loss of Will Rook’s football tips based on a £10 stake. Keep checking back for updated totals.

Norwich to beat Huddersfield

Norwich have managed to retain key players Max Aarons, Ben Godfrey and Teemu Pukki among plenty of others despite relegation.

Along with a handful of eye-catching additions like Oliver Skipp, Kieran Dowell and Jordan Hugill, they look in better shape now than at the end of last season, so represent great value here.

Huddersfield flirted with the drop towards the end of 2019/20, winning just two of their final 10 matches, and with few players coming in over the off-season, it could be a similar story for them.

Peterborough to beat Accrington

Following the return of midfielder Sammie Szmodics on a permament deal, Peterborough look well placed for a promotion push.

Posh did the double over Accrington last term and won seven of their final nine matches before the season was curtailed. At odds-against, they are worth backing to get back to winning ways.

Accrington won just one match against any side that finished in the top 10 last season, so starting against one of the favourites to go up does not bode well.

Fleetwood to beat Burton

Fleetwood lost just one of their 18 matches at Highbury last season and should get off to a winning start on Saturday.

Joey Barton’s side have won back-to-back games in cup competitions and hammered Burton 4-1 in this fixture last season.

Both of the Brewers’ matches so far have finished level, meaning they have gone seven without a victory in all competitions.

Cheltenham to beat Morecambe

Despite improving under Derek Adams, Morecambe’s away form let them down last term. They earned the second-fewest points on the road in the division.

They kicked off 2020/21 with a draw and a defeat in their respective cup games against Grimsby and Rochdale, and come up against one of the best sides in the division here.

Cheltenham have picked up where they left off in March, starting this season with back-to-back victories, and can be trusted to take three points on Saturday.

Harrogate to beat Southend

This feels like a massive price for one of the EFL’s crisis clubs to be beaten.

Southend were relegated with 19 points last season – just five more than Bolton, who started on -12 – and it’s difficult to see where they have improved, with a host of first-teamers having left and not been replaced.

Harrogate proved their EFL credentials in their penalty shoot-out victory over Tranmere in the EFL Cup last week and are worth siding with at a generous price.
