Our Going For Goals team have a treble for this weekend's action as they bid for back-to-back winners.

Fulham v Man City (BC)

As colleague David John wrote in his Premier League preview, history entitles us to expect goals here.

Fulham have scored eight times in two home games this season, and both teams have scored the last nine times these two have met at Craven Cottage.

When you consider that Man City have played eight games without keeping a single clean sheet this season, this game stands out as a both teams to score banker.

Barnsley v Ipswich (CH)

The pressure is mounting on Ipswich boss Paul Jewell following a dreadful start to the season and few will expect them to keep a clean sheet against a Barnsley side who smashed five past Birmingham away from home last weekend.

The visitors will hardly be full of confidence but their opponents are not the most solid of teams at the back having shipped 17 goals in all competitions - so we could be in for a high-scoring affair at Oakwell.

Whether the Ipswich players will be fighting for Jewell is another question, but there's no doubt he'll at least be trying his hardest to get motivate them into getting a result to save his job.

Burton v Northampton (NH)

Burton are a side who will be well worth supporting in this feature as the season continues. They are very strong going forward but not quite as strong at the back as the 3-2 defeat at Bradford in the Capital One Cup showed.

The Brewers have been winners in this market in their last three games and now they face a decent challenge against Northampton.

Aidy Boothroyd's men have started the season well and expect a decent contest when they make the journey north on Saturday.
