13th October: Tuesday’s Football Accumulator – 8/1

With the Nations League still taking center stage in midweek, we are offered a stacked Tuesday night of footballing action from across Europe. On that note, for those of you looking to stick on a midweek acca, we have searched far and wide to find you a handful of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.

Tuesday 13th October

BST 19:00 Cheltenham Town vs Grimsby Town

Starting with Tuesday’s hosts, really impressing many in League Two before last year’s campaign was brought to an early halt, Cheltenham appears to have started off from where they finished in March. Along with continuing on their EFL Trophy adventure after landing back-to-back victories, Michael Duff’s men once again impressed over the weekend as they landed a 2-0 win against Crawley and they find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Knowing that three points in midweek could see them jump up to top spot in England’s fourth-tier, the Robins now find themselves in the midst of a four-match winning run across all competitions and there is no doubt that Duff will be hugely excited by his side’s continued performances as the back. Securing another clean sheet against Crawley at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium over the weekend, Tuesday’s hosts have gone over 400 minutes without picking the ball out of their own net across any format and have recorded a clean sheet in each of their previous four victories on the spin. On the flip side, while Cheltenham might be enjoying a very impressive purple patch, Grimsby already find themselves battling it out at the foot of the table and many have them tipped as a leading contender to lose their Football League status this season. While they might have managed to scrape a 0-0 draw away at Bolton over the weekend, the midweek guests have failed to win any of their five competitive matchups this season within 90 minutes and are remarkably yet to record a single League Two strike so far this year.

Tip: Cheltenham Town win to nil @ 2/1

19:45 Hartlepool United vs Bromley 

After backing them over the weekend, Hartlepool should be looking to extend on what has been a very impressive start to the New Year when they return to the Super 6 Stadium on Tuesday night. Desperate to end their three-year stay in Football League exile, the Pools once again impressed as they landed a 4-0 romp away at Maidenhead on Saturday afternoon and have managed to skyrocket their way to top spot in the National League. Now on of just two sides along with Sutton who can boast a 100% start to the 2020/2021 campaign, Head Coach Dave Challinor has seen his side win each of their opening three fifth-tier appearances on the bounce after what was a fruitful pre-season run. Scoring a quartet of strikes on the road over the weekend, it is no surprise that Hartlepool have gained a real reputation for their recent showings in the final third. Now bagging eight goals on their three-match National League winning run this month, it should also be noted that continuing on from last season, Tuesday’s hosts also hold what is a stellar record on home soil. Including opening the New Year with a 2-1 win against Aldershot Town, the Blues have collected 15 points over their last six contests in Durham. On the flip side, while Bromley might have managed to open proceedings with a victory against Dover, Neil Smith’s side failed to drag the momentum into Saturday’s showdown against Torquay. Throwing away the lead in worrying fashion, the Ravens were hit with a 2-1 defeat on home soil and really showed a string of issues before last year’s campaign was brought to an early finish.

Tip: Hartlepool United win @ 4/5

19:45 Montenegro vs Luxembourg

Starting with Tuesday’s hosts, while Montenegro might have failed to make any real impact as they finished bottom of Group A during qualifying for next year’s delayed European Championships, it has been quite the turnaround for the Reds. Last seen before football’s enforced break back in November when landing a 2-0 win against Belarus on home soil, the mood in Faruk Hadžibegić’s camp is at a real high and they are in the midst of their most fruitful spell in recent memory. Putting in what was another impressive performance over the weekend as they secured a deserved 2-0 win against Azerbaijan on home soil, the Falcons have continued on a 100% start to this year’s Nations League and they are the only side across any Group C nation that can boast a 100% start. Collecting nine points from their opening three appearances, Montenegro have won three of their last four contests across all formats and find themselves in the midst of a five-match unbeaten run. Looking to lay down another marker and all but secure a spot in Group B for next time around, it should also be noted that they have won each of their last two meetings against Luxembourg, including a 1-0 victory on their travels last month. On the flip side, while Tuesday’s guests might have managed to land a much-needed 2-0 win against Cyprus over the weekend, the Red Lions have only continued to show their inconsistencies. Including a shock 2-1 defeat against Liechtenstein in a friendly contest last week, Luxembourg have lost five of their last six appearances on the road.
