Berbatov: Hoping to score against his old club

1pt accumulator both teams to score in Fulham v Tottenham, Nottingham Forest v Hull, Barrow v Macclesfield and Rotherham v Notts County at 5.91/1 (Stan James).


Fulham v Tottenham (CH)

The reasoning for this selection is simple: Fulham have scored in every home league game while Spurs have done the same on the road.

The Cottagers, who have Dimitar Berbatov aiming to score against his former club, conceded three against misfiring Sunderland last weekend - albeit with 10 men - so I think they'll struggle to keep out a rejuvenated Tottenham side.

Andre Villas-Boas' men go into this clash on the back of two straight wins but they've yet to keep a clean sheet away from home in the league so goals certainly look on the cards.

Nottingham Forest v Hull (CH)

Nottingham Forest will be keen to bounce back to winning ways and reignite their push for the play-off places following the midweek 3-1 defeat at lowly Ipswich and I feel their clash with sixth-placed Hull promises goals at both ends.

Forest's five clean sheets this season - four at home - isn't exactly encouraging reading for a bet like this but they were fragile at the back against the Tractor Boys and also in the heavy 4-1 defeat at home to Millwall in early November.

Hull come into this clash on the back of two games without a goal but they played really well against high-flying Crystal Palace in midweek and on another night would have scored at least two of the hatful of chances they created.

Barrow v Macclesfield (NH)

This all Conference clash gives both sides hope of reaching round three of the FA Cup.

Barrow sit one spot off the bottom of the table while six of their previous eight matches with both teams scoring.

Macclesfield are eight points better off in the standings and sit ninth but expect a close encounter on Saturday.

Rotherham v Notts County (NH)

This League Two v League One encounter makes our list.

Five of Rotherham's seven games in November have seen both teams score and there have been some really entertaining matches in that run.

Notts County provide a tough test to get this match selected for the weekend.
