With a busy Saturday of action from across England’s footballing tiers, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips that can boost your weekend acca:
Saturday 28th September
BST 15:00 Blackburn Rovers vs Luton Town
Starting with Saturday’s hosts, after picking up a 2-1 win away at Reading last weekend, Blackburn have really started to impress following on from the international break. With their sights set on mounting a play-off charge this season, Tony Mowbray’s men have now landed back-to-back victories and have lost just one of their last six Championship appearances. One man who has really led Blackburn’s charge is playmaker Bradley Dack. Once again finding the net on the road last time out, the 25-year-old now has three in his last three outings and should be confident of extending that tally this weekend. With Luton shipping four goals against Leicester and crashing out of the EFL Cup in midweek, the Whites find themselves in the midst of a struggle. Now losing their last three matches on the bounce, including back-to-back defeats in England’s second tier, Graeme Jones has seen his men ship 10 goals on their losing run. Given Luton’s continued issues at the back, we’re backing a free-scoring Bradley Dack to extend his purple patch this weekend.
Tip: Bradley Dack to score anytime @ 7/5
15:00 Oxford United vs Gillingham
Picking up an astonishing 4-0 win over Premier League outfit West Ham on Wednesday night and booking their spot in the last 16 of this year’s EFL Cup, the mood in Oxford’s camp couldn’t be any higher. With their sights firmly set on clinching a route out of League One this season, former MK Dons boss Karl Robinson is enjoying his most successful spell at the Kassam Stadium. Unbeaten in their last four matches across all competitions and winning three of those appearances, there is no doubt that fans around Oxfordshire will be most impressed by their sides newfound defensive resolve. Recording their fourth consecutive clean sheet against the Hammers in midweek, Oxford have now gone almost 400 minutes without picking the ball out of their net. On the flip side, Gillingham have continued to show some glaring inconsistencies as we approach October. Coming off the back of a 1-0 loss against Ipswich, Saturday’s guests have won just one of their last five matchups and are yet to pick up a single away victory this season.
Tip: Oxford United win @ 10/11
15:00 Peterborough vs AFC Wimbledon
Although Peterborough may have seen their unbeaten run come to an abrupt end away at Doncaster last weekend, there is no doubt that the Blues will be glad to make a return to the Weston Homes Stadium on Saturday. Looking to mount a play-off finish this season, Darren Ferguson’s men have won back-to-back matches on home soil, including a 6-0 romp over Rochdale a fortnight ago. Bagging nine goals in just their last two matchups in front of their own supporters, one man who has continued to shine this season is leading marksman Ivan Toney. Including bagging a hat-trick against Rochdale earlier in the month, the 23-year-old already has eight League One goals to his name and leads the race to clinch the Golden Boot. Also recording seven goals in his last eight appearances, Toney should be confident of extending his tally this weekend. Shipping three goals at home against Bristol Rovers last time out, AFC Wimbledon already find themselves sat second-bottom in the standings and have now lost four of their last five outings. More worrying, Saturday’s guests have failed to pick up a single victory in their opening 10 matches so far.
Tip: Ivan Toney to score anytime @ 10/11
