23rd October: Saturday’s Football Accumulator – 6/1

With another stacked schedule on the cards this weekend, Saturday promises a host of noteworthy meetings from across England. So, for those of you looking to stick on a weekend acca, we have found a handful of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.

Saturday October 23rd

BST 15:00 Leeds United vs Wolves

Starting with Saturday’s guests, managing to mount what was a stunning comeback on their travels last weekend, the mood in Wolves’ camp should be at a red-hot high. Despite falling 2-0 down away at local rivals Aston Villa when returning from the international break, the Oranges snatched a last-gasp 3-2 win on the road, a result that really laid down a marker. While the former Europa League outfit might have initially struggled to find their feet under new boss Bruno Lage, they have now started to skyrocket their way up the Premier League table. In fact, along with that action-packed victory at Villa Park last weekend, Wolves have won each of their last three top-flight contests on the spin. Hoping to cash in on their recent purple patch at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon, the one-time Benfica boss should also be boosted by Wolves’ record against this weekend’s hosts. Landing back-to-back 1-0 wins against Leeds last season, including a victory in Yorkshire, the Whites could face a tricky test here. Despite heading into the international break with a much-needed win, Marcelo Bielsa’s side came crashing immediately back down to earth. Last seen getting hit with a 1-0 defeat away at Southampton, the former Napoli manager has seen his side land just a single Premier League win since opening the 2021/22 campaign. Showing some recent issues in the final third, an away draw no bet appears at attractive odds here.

Tip: Wolves draw no bet @ 10/11

15:00 Morecambe vs Plymouth Argyle

While Plymouth might have spent the majority of last season battling it out at the foot of the League One table, the Greens have only continued to gain a host of plaudits this time around. Enjoying what has been nothing short of a third-tier romp, Ryan Lowe’s side were last seen earlier in the week putting in another stunning display. Laying down a real marker on home soil, the Pilgrims stormed their way to a 3-0 win against play-off hopefuls Bolton. Suddenly now tipped as the leading contender in the automatic promotion chase, Plymouth open this weekend’s fixtures sat holding a one-point buffer at the top of the table. Smelling a real chance to extend on their purple patch here, Saturday’s guests have won each of their last three League One contests on the spin. Gaining a reputation for their performances in the final third, it should also be noted that the Greens are unbeaten in each of their previous 13 third-tier matchups, a run that stems all the way back to August 7th. Also last seen on their travels picking up a 3-1 win away at Oxford, a struggling Morecambe could face another stern test this weekend. Last seen earlier in the week putting in a dreadful display, Stephen Robinson’s men were hit with a 3-1 drumming away at Cheltenham. Continuing to freefall their way down the table, the Shrimps have lost their last four matchups across all formats, conceding at least a pair of goals in each of those defeats.

Tip: Plymouth Argyle win @ 21/20

15:00 Aldershot vs Bromley

Starting with Saturday’s hosts, managing to extend on their FA Cup adventure last weekend as they picked up a 2-1 win away at non-league Hungerford, Bromley find themselves in the midst of a stellar purple patch. Tipped as a leading pick to land themselves another play-off spot this season, Andy Woodman’s side have really bounced back from a rocky start to the 2021/22 campaign. Last seen on National League duties picking up a 2-0 victory against Torquay on home soil, the Ravens are now in the midst of a six-match winning run, a run that stems all the way back to September 11th. Likewise, winning each of their last five straight fifth-tier matchups, Bromley have also continued to shine with their displays at the back. With a real chance to move within striking distance on the top-three, it should also be noted that the Whites have conceded just a single goal in any of their last five National League matchups. Last seen on their travels picking up a 1-0 win against Dover, they should also be boosted by a stellar record against Saturday’s hosts. Including a 3-2 win back in May, Woodman’s side have won each of their last four straight meetings against the relegation strugglers. Opening up the weekend’s fixtures sat in the drop zone, Aldershot are enduring a real nightmare, Crashing out of the FA Cup against non-league Bowers & Pitsea last week, the Blues have lost three of their last four matchups across all formats.
