FLC Gameweek 4 – Pick, Risk, Avoid

Gameweek four already? In a league which is almost impossible to predict, we tell you who you should Pick, Risk, and Avoid in this weekend’s round of fixtures

Pick

Bobby Reid – Reid leads the way in points scored by a distance, with an impressive 33 already. After two goals in his first game, questions were asked about whether his form would continue, but his speed is making him a problem for FLC defenders and he’s scored two more since then. The time has come to believe in Bobby. Get him in your team before you miss out anymore.

Martin Waghorn – Ipswich’s new frontman Waghorn has started the season in fine form. The Tractor Boy has three goals to his name already and with a home tie against Brentford, he will be looking to add to them.

Barry Douglas – The league’s highest scoring defender not only looks resolute at the back but he’s an attacking threat too. Wolves added Douglas over the summer and the left back has settled nicely at the Midlands club. With two clean sheets in four games, Wolves will be confident of getting a positive result at home against a Cardiff side that look equally strong.

Risk

Gabby Agbonlahor – Everyone knows what Gabby Agbonlahor offers. The Villa forward has bagged a goal and featured heavily as part of an Aston Villa side that have really struggled with form in the opening games. Villa need to turn their fortunes urgently, and a home tie against Norwich this weekend gives them the ideal opportunity. If Villa do well, Agbonlahor will be at the centre of it.

Jacques Maghoma – Maghoma is part of a Birmingham side that, like their city rivals, have failed to live up to their expectation. Maghoma has been a strong performer for them in the first three games, however, and with a tie against relegation favourites, Burton Albion, Harry Redknapp will be looking to steady the ship and take Birmingham City higher up the table.

Bruno Manga – Manga was central to the Bluebirds team last year, and Cardiff were able to get him to sign a new contract during the summer. A rock at the back, Manga is part of a Cardiff side with a 100% record this season. The only problem Manga has is that he faces his toughest test yet against Sunderland this weekend.

Avoid

Stephen Bywater – Bywater is yet to keep a clean sheet this season, and the Burton Albion stopper faces the unenviable task of keeping out a very strong Birmingham City side this weekend. Although Birmingham haven’t been at their free-scoring best this season, Harry Redknapp will be looking for a response tonight at Burton. It doesn’t seem that Bywater will get his clean sheet just yet.

Byron Webster – Millwall’s centre-back Byron Webster has struggled to lead the back line convincingly. Webster who was the fulcrum of the team last year will be hoping he can help sure things up in Bristol this weekend. However, he faces the tough task of keeping out the league’s top point scorer Bobby Reid. In what is sure to be a high-spirited game, Millwall will have to adapt to succeed.

Cameron Jerome – The Norwich striker hasn’t yet produced for the Canaries this year. The frontman comes at a hefty fee and fantasy players will be concerned about their return on investment with only four points scored so far. Will he turn the tide and find the form he has shown in previous seasons with Norwich? He may well do, but this weekend Norwich have a tough game against Aston Villa who are in need of a win.
