Our Going For Goals team are back with a both-team-to-score treble covering the Premier League, Championship and League Two.

Southampton have troubled the best sides this season
Southampton have troubled the best sides this season

Southampton v Manchester City (AS)

Only Everton have kept Saints out in their last nine matches (and they were lucky to do so), a run which included games against Manchester United, Chelsea (twice) and Arsenal.

City could still be without star defender Vincent Kompany, but even if they aren't Southampton have shown they've got enough in their locker to trouble teams going forward with the likes of Rickie Lambert and the in-form Jay Rodriguez offering goal threat. They showed as much when losing the reverse fixture 3-2.

It's hard to see the hosts keeping City out so we'll confidently add this one to the acca.

Peterborough v Leicester (CH)

Peterborough and Leicester will both be desperately chasing all three points for contrasting reasons at London Road on Saturday and we feel there's good reason to expect goals at both ends.

Only fellow strugglers Bristol City have conceded more than rock-bottom Posh this season but Darren Ferguson's men do at least pose a threat up front having netted in each of their last 10 Championship games.

Although second-placed Leicester do have the best defensive record in the division, they failed to keep a clean sheet against struggling Huddersfield and Wolves in their last two outings.

Wycombe v York (NH)

We go to resurgent Wycombe for this weekend's League Two Going For Goals selection.

The Chairboys have jumped up to mid-table after a very poor start to the campaign and Monday night's win at Gillingham fully proved their credentials.

York haven't been in the best of form recently but four of their previous five matches have seen both teams score so they join the list.
