With another hectic weekend of action from across England’s footballing tiers, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips that can boost your Saturday accumulator:
Saturday 12th January
BST 15:00 Burnley vs Fulham
Although Burnley may have spent the majority of this year battling it out at the foot of the Premier League table, Sean Dyche’s side are enjoying quite the resurge entering 2019. Picking up a 1-0 win over Barnsley and booking their spot in the fourth round of this year’s FA Cup, the Clarets have also won their last two top-flight matches on the bounce. Finally finding a route out of the relegation zone, one man to watch for Saturday’s hosts will be New Zealand international Chris Wood. Scoring the winning goal in the Cup last weekend, the 27-year-old has now found the net in his last three consecutive matches. Given Fulham’s continued struggles under former title-winning boss Claudio Ranieri, Dyche should be confident of extending Burnley’s unbeaten run this weekend. Fulham came crashing out of the FA Cup at the hands of League Two outfit Oldham last Saturday and the Cottagers now find themselves four points adrift of safety. More worrying for fans around Craven Cottage, the visitors are yet to win a single league match on the road this season.
Tip: Home win @ 7/5
15:00 Bristol City vs Bolton Wanderers
Although a terrible run of form may have seen Bristol City freefall down the Championship table back in October, Lee Johnson’s side are enjoying a very eye-catching turnaround. Picking up a 1-0 win over Premier League side Huddersfield in the FA Cup last weekend, the Robins are now unbeaten in their last nine matches across all competitions. Also winning their last three consecutive outings, another win on Saturday could see City climb as high as seventh and within touching distance of the playoff positions. If there is one area in particular that will be impressing Johnson, it will be their recent defensive stability. The Reds have not conceded a single goal on their three-match winning run and have not been beaten at Ashton Gate since the end of November. With Bolton making the trip South this weekend, the playoff hopefuls will be relishing the arrival of Lee Parkinson’s struggling side. Saturday’s visitors have now won just one of their last 17 Championship matches and along with losing their last four away matches on the bounce, they haven’t recorded a single goal on that losing run.
Tip: Home win to nil @ 7/5
15:00 Wycombe vs Doncaster
Picking up a 3-1 win and knocking Championship side Preston out of the FA Cup last weekend, Doncaster are enjoying a very impressive lease of life in League One. Now enjoying a three-match winning run across all competitions and reclaiming their spot in the playoff positions, one man you must keep an eye on this weekend will be Doncaster’s leading goalscorer John Marquis. The 26-year-old once again found the net against Preston last weekend and now has four goals in his last three matches across all competitions. Marquis’ 15 goals also see him sit one clear at the top of the League One goalscoring charts. With the chance to potentially climb as high as third in the table, Doncaster will be excited by the chance to face off against a struggling Wycombe side. Saturday’s hosts have now lost their last four league matches on the bounce and have also now lost their last two games at Adams Park. Given the recent run of form between the two sides, we’re backing this weekend’s visitors to come away with the three points.
Tip: Away win @ 11/8
