23rd March: Saturday’s Football Accumulator – 17/1

Although the Premier League might be taking a break this weekend that doesn’t mean we’re short of action from England’s lower leagues. On that note, we have found a handful of helpful tips that can boost your Saturday acca:

Saturday 23rd March

BST 15:00 Luton vs Doncaster

Starting with the hosts, while Luton would have been disappointed to have only picked up a 2-2 against Gillingham last weekend, the Hatters still remain in pole position to secure promotion to the Championship this season. Now holding a five-point buffer over Barnsley at the top of the table, Mick Hartford’s side have remarkably gone 25 League One matches unbeaten, a run that stems all the way back to the 13th of October. A key part of their push to the title this campaign has undoubtedly been their on-going form at Kenilworth Road. Saturday’s hosts are yet to lose a single match in front of their own supporters in the league this season. While Luton may have continued their impressive form in the second half of the season, the same can not be said for Doncaster. Now slipping out of the playoff positions, they have failed to win any of their last seven matches across all competitions and their form in the final third will be a growing concern. Doncaster have recorded just a single goal in over 300 minutes of action. Also yet to record a league victory on their travels in 2019, we’re backing a comfortable afternoon for Luton on Saturday.

Tip: Home win to nil @ 21/10

15:00 Coventry vs Oxford 

Coming off the back of a 2-1 win away at fellow playoff contenders Peterborough last weekend, Coventry now sit just a single point from climbing into the top-six. With Mark Robbins’ side firmly believing that they can secure back to back promotions this year, the Sky Blues have won three of their last four and have lost just a single matchup since the end of January. Really starting to impress at the back end of the season, the mood around the Ricoh Arena should be on a high. Picking up a 2-1 win when they faced Oxford in the reverse fixture back in September, Robbins should be confident of his side climbing back into the playoff positions. Despite managing to pick up a much-needed 1-0 win over Bradford last weekend, Saturday’s visitors still sit firmly at the heart of a relegation battle and their form on the road has been a huge concern this year. Former MK Dons boss Karl Robinson finds his side holding just a one-point buffer over the drop zone and they have now failed to win any of their last four matches away from the Kassam Stadium. Even more worrying for Oxford, they have remarkably won just one of their last 20 matches on the road.

Tip: Home win @ 13/10

15:00 Colchester vs Tranmere 

Now coming off the back of a pair of 3-0 hammerings against Forest Green and Exeter over the past two weeks, Colchester have really begun to struggle at the end of the season. Despite sitting just a single point from climbing into the playoffs, Saturday’s hosts have recorded just one win in their last six outings and their defensive issues will be a growing concern for John McGreal. Losing three of their last four League Two appearances, Colchester have conceded three goals in each of those defeats. While United might be stalling, the same can not be said for Tranmere. Now enjoying a five-match winning run, Micky Mellon’s side are firmly on course to land a playoff position. One man who is really spearheading their promotion push this season is League Two leading goalscorer James Norwood. Once again finding the net last weekend, the 28-year-old already has 25 league goals to his name and has also bagged nine in his last 11 and three in his last three. Also finding the net when the two sides met back in September, we’re backing Norwood to enjoy another successful afternoon against a Colchester side showing some glaring defensive issues.
