EFL acca: A 14/1 four-fold for Good Friday’s action

Enda McElhinney's reveals his best bets for Good Friday's matches across the Championship, League One and League Two.

Best bets

Hull to beat Stoke /

Fleetwood beat Cheltenham /

Peterborough to beat Carlisle /

Colchester to beat Newport /

Hull v Stoke (15:00)

Hull are three points shy of the Championship playoffs as they approach the final batch of eight league games and they can improve their promotion prospects by defeating relegation-threatened Stoke at the MKM Stadium.

The Tigers upgraded their squad with some bold moves in the January transfer window including the loan captures of Premier League trio Fabio Carvalho, Anass Zaroury and Ryan Giles.

Results have improved with 19 points taken from the last 10 games, including a 2-2 draw at home to Leicester last time out.

Stoke have concerns at the other end of the table with just two points separating them from the relegation zone.

The Potters have lost eight of their last 11 games and their struggles look set to continue.

Fleetwood v Cheltenham (15:00)

Second-bottom Fleetwood and third-bottom Cheltenham have been stuck in the League One drop zone for the vast majority of the season but both are in with a chance of survival as they prepare to go head-to-head at Highbury.

Charlie Adam’s Cod Army are five points adrift of safety, while Cheltenham are a point closer having played one game less.

Fleetwood are in the more difficult position but they have been much-improved in recent months, losing two of their last 11 games.

Adam’s side were unlucky to draw 1-1 at home to Charlton last time out and they can get the better of Cheltenham, who are winless from their last six fixtures.

Peterborough v Carlisle (15:00)

Peterborough’s League One promotion hopes were dented by a 1-0 defeat at home to Portsmouth last time out, but they remain in the hunt for a top two finish and can respond by defeating basement boys Carlisle at London Road.

Prior to their harsh loss to the leaders, Peterborough had been on a six-game winning sequence.

They have been playing free-flowing football and should have too much quality for the Cumbrians, who could be relegated over the Easter holidays.

Carlisle are tailed off after losing 12 of their last 14 matches and appear to be ideal opposition for promotion-chasing Posh.

Colchester v Newport (15:00)

Colchester are sitting just one point above the League Two relegation zone but they can boost their survival hopes by defeating Newport in Essex.

Danny Cowley’s side have lost only two of their last 11 games, but eight of those games have been drawn, including last Saturday’s 1-1 stalemate at Mansfield.

Matching Mansfield should have given the Colchester players a big confidence boost.

They competed on even terms with top of table Stags and are likely to be too strong for Newport, who have lost 12 of 20 away league fixtures.
