Championship football makes a welcome return with weekend after the international break, and with it comes plenty of great betting options with Sky Bet.

Blackpool are looking to get back to winning ways at Birmingham City, who are currently competing at the wrong end of the table after an inconsistent start.

The Seasiders could move to within two points of an automatic promotion spot, whilst City are looking over their shoulders, sitting three points off the dreaded relegation zone.
 
Supporters can back Pool at 21/10 to claim a fourth away win of the season.

Birmingham are at 5/4, whilst 12/5 are the odds for a draw.

The last time Blackpool were on the road they claimed a 1-0 victory at Nottingham Forest, and are 15/2 to repeat that score line this weekend.

Stephen Dobbie has opened the scoring in his last two Blackpool games and can be backed at 15/2 to do it for a third game running.

City’s main threat in recent week has come from Manchester United loanee Jesse Lingard and he is 6/4 to score anytime, with his strike partner Nikola Zigic the same odds.

First goal scorer
Thomas Ince – 6/1
Ricardo Fuller – 13/2
Gary MacKenzie – 33/1

Correct score
Blackpool 2-1 win – 10/1
