6th April: Saturday’s Football Accumulator – 12/1

With a hectic Saturday afternoon of action from across England’s footballing tiers this weekend, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of tips that can boost your Saturday acca:

Saturday 6th April

BST 15:00 Huddersfield vs Leicester 

After backing Jamie Vardy to find the net last weekend, we’re once again trusting Leicester’s leading man to extend his goalscoring tally on Saturday. With Brendan Rodgers’ arrival breathing new life into the Foxes, the former Celtic boss is now watching his side enjoy a three-match winning run in the Premier League. Picking up a 2-0 victory over Bournemouth last weekend, fans around the King Power Stadium will be dreaming of a late European push this season. Scoring two or more goals in each of their victories over the Cherries, Fulham and Burnley, it will be the ongoing form on Vardy really impressing Rodgers. Enjoying his brightest spell of the campaign, the 32-year-old once again found the net against Bournemouth last time out and Leicester’s talisman has five in his last five Premier League appearances. Also finding the net in the Foxes’ 3-1 victory over Huddersfield back in September, Vardy should be confident of extending his recent run this weekend. Slumping to a 2-0 loss away at Crystal Palace and already relegated to the Championship, it has been nothing short of a woeful campaign for Huddersfield. Enduring a four-match losing run in the top-flight, it has been their ongoing defensive issues most worrying under-pressure boss Jan Siewert. Conceding nine goals on their four-match losing run, Saturday’s hosts have also recorded just one clean sheet in their last 13 outings.

Tip: Jamie Vardy to score anytime @ 6/5

15:00 Millwall vs West Brom

Starting with Saturday’s visitors, battling back to pick up a 3-2 win over Midlands rivals Birmingham last week, few would have expected West Brom’s impressive resurge in the post-Darren Moore era. Now enjoying a three-match winning run since the arrival of caretaker boss James Shan, the Baggies will have one eye on a late push for the automatic positions. A huge part of West Brom’s push to book an immediate return to the Premier League has been their form away from the Hawthorns. They have now recorded five victories on the road in their last six outings and their only defeat coming against title dark horses Leeds. Holding the second best-attacking record in the second-tier and led by the duo of Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez who have 36 league goals between them, the mood in West Brom’s camp will be on a high this weekend. While the Baggies might be enjoying a resurge at the back end of the season, the same cannot be said for Millwall. Suffering more late heartbreak and slumping to a 3-2 loss against Leeds last weekend, Saturday’s hosts have lost five of their last six Championship appearances and now hold just a one-point buffer from slipping into the drop zone. Most worrying boss Neil Harris will undoubtedly be their form in South London. Throwing away a two-goal lead against Brighton in the FA Cup last month, the Lions have lost their last three matches on home soil and have not picked up a Championship victory at the Den in 2019.

Tip: Away win @ 31/20

15:00 AFC Wimbledon vs Accrington Stanley

Well, although many had AFC Wimbledon tipped for relegation at the start of March, few would have expected their very eye-catching revival at the back end of the season. Enjoying their brightest run of form in this year’s League One campaign, Saturday’s hosts continued their momentum last weekend by picking up a much-needed 2-1 win away at Scunthorpe. With Wally Downes’ side seeing just their goal difference keeping them in the drop zone, another victory at Kingsmeadow could see them finish the weekend as high as 17th. Now winning four of their last five outings, fans around Surrey will be hoping for leading goalscorer Joe Pigott to spearhead their charge for League One safety. The only player for AFC to score double digits this season, the 25-year-old has 13 goals this campaign and has now scored five in his last eight. Although AFC are enjoying a very eye-catching run at the back end of the season, it is a far more worrying time for Accrington Stanley. Slumping to a 1-0 loss at home to Fleetwood last weekend, Saturday’s visitors have lost five of their last six and their form on the road has been their major downfall this season. Stanley have picked up just one victory away from home since the 22nd of December, an eight-match run.

Tip: Home win @ 11/8
