With another busy Tuesday night from across Europe and in English footballs lower tiers, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips that can help boost your midweek acca:

Tuesday 2nd October

19:45 BST Wigan vs Swansea

For Wigan, after being promoted from League One last season, Wigan are enjoying an impressive start to life back in the Championship. While Paul Cook’s side are coming off the back of a 1-0 loss away at a resurgent Norwich, only their goal difference keeps them from occupying a playoff position enter October. One thing that will be especially be impressing the former Portsmouth boss will be his sides recent form on home soil. Picking up three points against fellow playoff hopefuls Bristol City in their last appearance at The DW, Tuesday’s hosts have also won their last three home matches on the bounce. Sat a single place above Wigan in the table, while Swansea are coming off the back of a 3-0 win against QPR on Saturday, The Swans have struggled when leaving South Wales. Only winning one of their four matches on the road so far this season, Graham Potter’s side have also failed to find the net in their last two matches away from The Liberty.

Tip: Home win @ 1/1

19:45 Reading vs QPR 

While Paul Clement will be the first to admit that it hasn’t been a perfect start for Reading, his side have recently shown some signs of life, particularly in the final third. Coming off the back of a very impressive 2-2 draw with playoff hopefuls Brentford, Tuesday’s hosts have now lost just one of their last four Championship outings. Also putting three past Hull in their last appearance at the Madejski, one man who has epitomized The Royals recent turn in fortunes has been striker Jon Dadi Bodvarsson. The 26-year-old now has four in his last four and also sits fourth in the Championships goalscoring charts. Coming up against a QPR side once again struggling with their defensive issues, the Iceland international should fancy his chances of carrying on his recent fine run of form. Along with Steve McClaren’s side shipping three against The Swans on Saturday, QPR have now lost their last three on the bounce and their 18 goals conceded so far means they hold the second worst defensive record in the division.

Tip: Jon Dadi Bodvarsson to score anytime @ 15/8

19:45 Coventry vs Portsmouth 

Although Portsmouth couldn’t land a playoff position last season, Kenny Jacket’s side have started the new League One campaign in impressive form. Picking up a 3-1 win away at Rochdale last time out, Pompey are now the only team in the division yet to be beaten after 10 games. Holding a single point advantage over Peterborough, they have also won five of their six matches away from Fratton Park. Finding the net against Rochdale over the weekend, one man to watch for Portsmouth will be last years top scorer Brett Pitman. Returning from injury, the 30-year-old now has two in his last two. As for the hosts, after being promoted from League Two last season, Coventry have done a stable job after 10 games. While they may hold a four point buffer over the relegation zone, it will be their form in the final third causing the biggest concerns. The Sky Blues tally of eight goals now means they hold the second worst attacking stats in the division. Winning just one of their last four matches at home, we’re backing Pompey to carry on their unbeaten run on Tuesday.

Tip: Away win @ 11/8
