Boxing Day Championship Treble: Home wins for Leicester, Wigan and Blackburn

Al Hain-Cole has looked over all the best from the second-tier action on December 26 and picked out three of the safest bets for an accumulator that comes in at over 5/1
Championship Treble
Leicester City
Kick-off: 15.00GMT
Tip: Leicester to win at 4/5 (1.80) with Coral

Leicester will be in fine spirits after bouncing back from two consecutive Championship defeats to take four points off top two Burnley and QPR, leaving themselves in good shape for a title tilt of their own.

Nigel Pearson's men sit just one point off the summit as they welcome a Reading team who have lost two of their last three games and should be confident of maintaining the pressure by securing an eighth win in 10 league games at the King Power Stadium.

Having brought QPR's unbeaten home record to an end at Loftus Road, the Foxes look like good value at 4/5 (1.80) to build on their own impressive record in front of their own fans by securing an important win against their fellow promotion hopefuls.

Birmingham City
Kick-off: 15.00GMT
Tip: Wigan to win at 17/20 (1.85) with Coral

Uwe Rosler has made a flying start to life in charge of Wigan, gaining six points from a possible six to revive their faltering promotion bid.

In fact, the former Brentford manager is unfortunate to not have nine points under his belt already after seeing the match against Sheffield Wednesday abandoned after an hour with his side leading 1-0, and confidence will be high when they take on Birmingham City.

With the Europa League no longer a distraction after their elimination, the Latics can finally get down to the business of returning to the Premier League at the first attempt and odds of 17/20 (1.85) are not to be missed on them cutting the gap to the promotion places even more with another three points.

Blackburn Rovers
Sheffield Wednesday
Kick-off: 15.00GMT
Blackburn to win at 17/20 (1.85) with Coral

Having originally been appointed Blackburn manager on a temporary basis following Michael Appleton’s dismissal in March, Gary Bowyer continues to impress after taking the reins full-time in the summer.

The former youth-team coach has built his success on a strong home record, overseeing just two defeats in his 14 Championship games in charge at Ewood Park thanks largely to a defence who have conceded only nine goals in that period.

This form looks set to continue when they take on a Sheffield Wednesday side with just eight goals to their name in 10 away games so far, meaning that odds of 17/20 (1.85) on Rovers earning a third consecutive victory are not to be missed.
