13th October: Saturdays Football Accumulator – 14/1

Tom Dunstan in Football Accumulators 12 Oct 2018


While the international break has brought a halt to action from across Europe’s top tiers, that doesn’t mean we’re short of fixtures from across the lower leagues. On that note, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips that can boost your Saturday acca:

15:00 BST Cambridge United vs MK Dons

While Saturday’s visitors may have struggled to adjust to life in League Two, MK Dons have shown signs of life of late. Despite crashing out of the EFL Cup at the hands of Luton in midweek, Paul Tisdale’s side are unbeaten in their last four League Two outings. Tipped by many to be a leading contender in the race for automatic promotion, they are now just three points adrift of the top two. Also yet to concede a goal in October, they have now only lost one match on the road this season. Given their recent run of the form, Tisdale should fancy their chances of carrying on their unbeaten run. With Cambridge just picking up eight points at the start of the season, they already find themselves sat second bottom of the table. Losing their last three on the bounce and conceding nine on that losing run, Saturday’s hosts are also without a win in League Two in their last eight appearances. More worrying for Cambridge, their 25 goals conceded means they now hold the second worst defensive record in the division.

Tip: Away win @ 6/5

15:00 Accrington Stanley vs Bradford

Starting with the hosts, John Coleman’s Accrington side have enjoyed a bright start to their first season in League One. Coming off the back of a very impressive showing in their 4-1 win over Macclesfield in the EFL Cup, Stanley have now won four of their last five in all competitions and sit one point adrift of the playoff positions. Yet to be beaten at Wham Stadium in any competition this season, Coleman’s men have also only lost one of their last 10 League One outings. As for the visitors, things could not be going worse for Bradford at the start of the new campaign. Despite briefly flirting with a playoff position last year, The Bantams find themselves sat 22nd in the table and are coming off the back of a very poor showing in their 4-1 home loss to Oldham in the Cup. Now losing six of their last eight league matches, Bradford have also conceded two or more goals in six of their last seven matches on the road.

Tip: Home win @ 17/20

15:00 Salford City vs Braintree Town

Enjoying a stellar start to the new season under former Scunthorpe manager Graham Alexander, Salford are tipped by many to run away with the National League this season. Coming off the back of a 4-1 win over Dover last week, the hosts have now won their last nine matches on the bounce and are without a loss in their last 14. One man who is leading Salford’s charge is former Aberdeen striker Adam Rooney. Moving to the Peninsula Stadium over the summer, the 30-year-old already has 12 for the season and sits top of the leagues goalscoring charts. Scoring a hat-trick against Dover in midweek, Rooney now has five in his last three and will relish the chance to improve on his tally. Braintree already sit rock bottom of the National League table and are seven points adrift of safety. Now losing their last four on the bounce and conceding 11 goals in that losing run, they also hold the third worst defensive record in the division.

Tip: Adam Rooney to score 2+ goals @ 11/4
