Our midweek Sporting Life Accumulator involves five teams from the Sky Bet EFL, enhanced to 11/1 with the title sponsors.
NOTTINGHAM FOREST won Chris Hughton's first game in charge to show new manager bounce is alive and well; they lost Sabri Lamouchi's final seven matches at the helm. Newly-promoted Rotherham are winless since the Sky Bet Championship's opening day and are low on defenders after Angus MacDonald's red card in their late defeat by Norwich.
Five defeats from five shows Wycombe are finding their inaugural campaign of second-tier football tough. Unbeaten READING are hardly the ideal opponent for them, having taken 13 points from a possible 15 and conceded only one goal.
HULL have won five of their first six in Sky Bet League One, including both at home. They bounced back from a first defeat of the season by winning 3-0 at Rochdale and should have too much for Wimbledon.
SUNDERLAND are one of only two unbeaten teams in League One and have conceded just one goal so far this term. Crewe, who have faced postponements this season because of positive Covid-19 tests, have made a decent start but lost their opening games of the season when faced with promotion contenders Charlton and Hull.
Plenty was said when SALFORD sacked Graham Alexander despite a lengthy unbeaten run and named minority-owner Paul Scholes as interim boss; more followed when the Manchester United legend lost his first game in charge. But Salford had plenty of chances before Port Vale's late winner and they now host Southend, who have won once in 16 matches.
Odds correct at 1100 BST (19/10/20)
