With teams in the MLS hoping to make a late push for the playoffs and sides in the Championship looking to get their campaigns off to an impressive start, Sunday promises to provide plenty of action. On that note, we have found a handful of helpful tips that can boost your weekend acca:

Sunday 2nd September

00:30 BST Orlando City vs Philadelphia Union

For Jim Curtin’s Philadelphia side, while inconsistency may have been their major problem this season, The Union are on a stellar run of form. Beating a very impressive DC United side 2-0 last time out, the visitors have now won their last six MLS matches on the bounce, keeping a clean sheet in four of the victories. While The Union have gained plaudits for their eye-catching defensive record, their playoff position has been shored up the recent run of form of strike partners Fafà Picault and Cory Burke. Combined, the duo have now recorded six goals in the last five matches they have played together. Coming up against an Orlando side on course to finish rock bottom of the Eastern Conference, Union should fancy their chances of increasing their goal tally. Sunday’s hosts have now managed to pick up just one win in their last 12 outings. Coming off the back of a 2-1 loss to Atalanta last time out, The Purples haven’t kept a clean sheet since the middle of April and also hold the worst defensive record in either conference.

Tip: Away win @ 31/20

12:00 Ipswich vs Norwich 

Although Ipswich turned to former Shrewsbury boss Paul Clarke in an attempt to close the playoffs, Sunday’s hosts have struggled at the start of the new campaign. Coming off the back of a 2-1 loss to Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, Ipswich are yet to pick up a win this season and their goal difference sees them sit bottom of the championship after five games. Also being knocked out of the League Cup at the hands of lower league Exeter, spirits are very low around Portman Road and they will not be relishing the chance to face a Norwich side boosted by an impressive performance in midweek. Knocking out Premier League outfit on Tuesday night and putting three past them, while they may only have four points out of a possible 15, Norwich have scored nine in their last five. After their performance in midweek and their threat in the final third, we’re backing The Canaries to come away with the win on Sunday afternoon.

Tip: Away win @ 7/5

13:30 Bristol City vs Blackburn 

Although they couldn’t secure the League One title last season, Blackburn have enjoyed a stellar start to the new campaign. Coming off the back of thumping Lincoln 4-1 in the League Cup, Tony Mowbray’s side are now unbeaten in their last five winning four of those outings. On route to securing automatic promotion, the visitors gained their reputation for their form on the road. Mowbray’s side have now lost just one of their last 12 competitive matches away from home, a run stemming back to the start of February. While Bristol City have now won their last two on the bounce, they have struggled at home this year. The Reds have now failed to win their last seven matches at Ashton Gate. Given Blackburn’s form on the road, we’re backing Rovers to come away with the three points on Sunday.

Tip: Away win @ 11/5
