23rd October: Wednesday’s Football Accumulator – 12/1

With a hectic Wednesday night of footballing action from across England, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips that can boost your midweek acca:

Wednesday 23rd October

BST 19:45 Huddersfield Town vs Middlesbrough

Starting with Wednesday’s hosts, after picking up an impressive 2-2 draw away at local rivals Blackburn over the weekend, Huddersfield have really started to shine since bringing in former Lincoln boss Danny Cowley. Coming on leaps and bounds over the past month, the Terriers are now enjoying a four-match unbeaten run, a run that also saw them pick up back-to-back victories over Stoke and Hull. With the mood around the John Smith’s Stadium the highest it has been in recent memory, fans around West Yorkshire will know that another victory in midweek will see them climb out of the drop zone for the first time since August. While Huddersfield could enter the weekend with a buffer over the bottom-three, Middlesbrough are a side continuing to show some very worrying issues. Unable to find any real momentum since brining in former defender Jonathan Woodgate, the Reds have now lost back-to-back matchups and have lost four of their last five contests. Also enduring a winless run that stems back to the middle of September, we’re backing another long night’s work for Boro.

Tip: Huddersfield win @ 13/10

19:45 Nottingham Forest vs Hull City 

While Nottingham Forest may have seen their 11-match Championship unbeaten run come to an end against Wigan over the weekend, the mood around the City Ground continues to soar. Only sat a single point adrift of climbing into the top-two, new boss Sabri Lamouchi will be glad to make a return to home soil on Wednesday night. Now landing back-to-back 1-0 victories over Brentford and Barnsley, the Reds have won five of their last six matches in front of their own supporters across all competitions. Also picking up a 3-0 win the last time Hull came to town back in March, there is no doubt that the former Rennes boss should be confident of refinding their winning form in midweek. Suffering a 3-2 loss at home to QPR over the weekend, new boss Grant McCann has seen his side now lose back-to-back defeats, including a 3-0 hammering away at Huddersfield prior to the international break. With the Tigers landing just two away victories since December 2018, we’re backing a home victory for Forest in midweek.

Tip: Nottingham Forest win @ 1/1

19:45 Coventry City vs Fleetwood Town 

Putting in yet another rampant display and picking up a 4-1 win over Burton on Saturday afternoon, Fleetwood are a side who appear to be really finding their form. Now sat within touching distance on climbing into the top-two in England’s third-tier, Joey Barton’s men have won four of their last five matches across all competitions and have also tasted defeat just once since the 31st of August. One man who has continued to lead Fleetwood’s play-off charge this season has been attacking talisman and leading marksman, Paddy Madden. Bagging a hat-trick against Burton last time out, the 29-year-old already has nine League One goals already this season and sits second in the overall goalscoring charts. With those nine strikes coming in his last 10 appearances, Madden should be confident of extending that tally on Wednesday given Coventry’s recent slump. Only managing to snatch a point off of strugglers MK Dons over the weekend, the Sky Blues have failed to win any of their last five matches across all formats. It should also be noted that Coventry have recorded just one clean sheet in their last five League One appearances.

Tip: Paddy Madden to score anytime @ 15/8
