nPower Championship Weekend Accumulator

Reading should be too good for Barnsley this weekend (credit: Pete Norton/Getty Images)
Reading, Watford and West Ham should all be able to claim wins in the nPower Championship on Saturday and a treble pays odds of 9/1 this weekend.

There are ten matches taking place in the nPower Championship on Saturday and there are a number of crucial battles at the top and bottom of the table. Leeds United v West Ham is the match of the day and much is expected of Neil Warnock's side against the stumbling Hammers.

However, West Ham are a far stronger side and have far more attacking threat than their hosts and that should be crucial in the game. Leeds may have kept clean sheets in three of their last four matches but they only scored twice in that period, firing three blanks. They won't make impression on the visitors back four on Saturday and that could lead to West Ham dominating possession.

The Hammers have won two and drawn four of their last six matches and they have only failed to score in one of those matches. Their striking options are plentiful with Sam Baldock, Nicky Maynard, Carlton Cole and Vaz Te all capable of goals. One of those four should find the net at Elland Road and that could seal the points for the visitors.

A West Ham win would increase the pressure on Reading, who are now second in the Championship table. The Royal eight game winning run came to an end when they drew with Doncaster during the week but they can bounce back with a victory over Barnsley at Oakwell. 

The home side are without a win in their last five league matches and have lost four times in that period. The Tykes couldn't cope with Southampton during the week and they look set to lose to another promotion contender today.

The final leg of our Championship treble on Saturday comes at Vicarage Road, where Watford take on Coventry City. The Sky Blues are yet to win away from home all season and have taken just three points from 17 matches on the road and things look bleak for Andy Thorn's side.

Watford may not be the strongest team in the division but eight wins from 18 home matches is a decent return. They have recently had an upturn in form, winning two of their last three games and they should be able to maintain momentum against Coventry.
