Every day we bring you what we think are some sensible selection options based on today’s upcoming matches; we’re not going to promise that these are guaranteed winners because if we could do that we’d all be millionaires by now. These players are all solid picks based on recent stats and their next opponents so check them out.

|Defender||Richard Keogh||Derby County||£9.9m|

|Defender||Adam Jackson||Hartlepool United||£6.2m|

Finding a banker is a bit tricky this evening but we feel that Middlesbrough/s home match against Burnley and Derby’s tie against Bristol City should earn some points for the hosts. That being the case we’ve stacked the defence with Keogh and warnock from Derby along with Boro’s keeper Konstantopoulos. Hartlepool host Salford City in the FA Cup replay and this should be another home banker so Adam Jackson makes up the back three.
Boro and Derby are also represented in midfield with Stewart Downing and George Thorne respectively but we’ve picked Scott Arfield from Burnley and Adam Reach from Preston (who host Birmingham) as the cheaper options.
Up front we have three of the highest points-scoring players so far who should collectively gather some rewards. They are Jamie Murphy (Brighton), Chris Martin (Derby) and Ross McCormack (Fulham).
