Hand in Glovers - the Sun Shines out of Yeovil's Behind

It really is crunch time in the English football leagues with the Championship seeing its final weekend of regular season action & Leagues One & Two with their second to last round of games. There's also plenty to play for in the Premier League with only Wolves definitely relegated & a fierce battle going on for European spots, city bragging rights & of course Monday's massive clash between Manchesters City & United in what looks to be a true title decider. We've got our usual Saturday preview here with some top value bets, keep up to date with our latest posts by following us on Twitter @LikeBuyingMoney you can do it just by clicking the Follow button above or by finding us on there, as ever good punting & good luck!

(Loanee Steven Pienaar is flourishing with regular football at familiar surroundings)
At Goodison Park, Everton will look to continue their fine form against mid-table Fulham. Everton put in a mightily impressive performance at Old Trafford last Sunday to come back from 3-1 and then 4-2 down to gain a point & put a major dent into United's title hopes. Arguably they have three of the league's form players in January signings Nikica Jelavic & Steven Pienaar (loan) and the frizzy haired Belgian Marouane Fellaini who bullied Johnny Evans & Rio Ferdinand into submission with ease. Apart from a blip at Wembley against bitter rivals Liverpool they are unbeaten in their last five league games with comfortable victories to nil over Swansea City, West Bromwich Albion & Sunderland. Visitors Fulham have had a decent season under the guidance of Martin Jol but as usual their strength has been at Craven Cottage rather than on the road. Away from home Fulham have lost half of their matches & only picked up three wins over relegation threatened Queens Park Rangers, Wigan Athletic & Bolton Wanderers, they've managed just 11 goals at a measly rate of 0.69 goals per game & you would expect they will struggle to breach a strong Everton defensive unit. Everton have the added incentive of finishing ahead of Liverpool & collecting the three points is a must at the best price of 20/23 with Boylesports.

(Striker Andy Williams 15 goals this season & could be in demand this summer)
In League One it looks like a couple of bookies have priced up Chesterfield to beat Yeovil based on the fact that 'they need to win' in their battle against relegation, that's foolish as Chesterfield are woeful travellers & all of us as enlightened punters must take advantage here. Chesterfield are down in 22nd & even if they win their remaining two games they'll need plenty of help from the teams in front of them to stand a chance of staying up, they've won just 3 away games all year & we don't like the odds of 6/4 in places about them winning this one. Backers of Chesterfield will point to an unexpected recent resurgence with them winning their last 3 in a row & giving themselves a glimmer of hope but those 3 wins have come against low grade opposition in mid table Hartlepool, 20th placed Wycombe & bottom of the table Rochdale. Yeovil haven't been great recently & took a pounding in their last home game against Stevenage, losing 6-0, they will be desperate to sign off on a positive in their last game in front of their home fans & Huish Park should have a boisterous atmosphere. Andy Williams & Jonathan Franks have been scoring fairly readily recently & will fancy their chances against a Chesterfield side that have conceded the second most away goals away from home in the league (45 in 22 games). Get on the Glovers, Yeovil can win at nice odds of 17/10 available with BetVictor who go best odds about all three results (Home/Away/Draw).

(Middlesbrough will hope to have strike Marvin Emnes return from his ongoing knee injury)

In the final round of Championship fixtures, Middlesbrough have a must win fixture over Watford at Vicarage Road. Middlesbrough need all three points & also hope Welsh side Cardiff City lose away at Crystal Palace to gain the final play-off spot. Middlesbrough have given themselves a chance after coming from behind to beat Southampton 2-1 last weekend & have grabbed seven points from a possible nine in their last three. Most sides would prefer a home fixture when looking for a maximum points but not Middlesborough who have a better record on the road with ten victories compared to only eight at home. Hosts Watford recovered from a poor opening few months to sit comfortably in 14th place which gives rookie manager Sean Dyche something to build on next season & of course they'll be wanting to win their last home game, although that could prove difficult against Boro who have some latent quality. Watford thrived over a busy period in March where they went unbeaten with 5 wins & 2 draws but they've stuttered recently with a loss & 3 draws since, it's in direct contrast to Boro who had a horrible period going 8 without a win from 11th March but they've got the engine running again in their last three games. It may not be enough to clinch a playoff spot but Middlesbrough can at least give themselves a chance by winning here at odds of 6/4.
