6th February: Wednesday’s Midweek Accumulator – 15/1

With a Wednesday night filled with action both in the FA Cup and over in the Scottish Premiership, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips to boost your midweek acca:

Wednesday 6th February

BST 19:45 Hearts vs Livingston 

Coming off the back of a very eye-catching 2-1 win away at Kilmarnock last weekend, Hearts will feel they can really mount a charge up the table in the second half of the season. Now winning five of their last six matches across all competitions, including a 1-0 win over Livingston in the FA Cup a fortnight ago, Craig Levein’s side sit just four points adrift of climbing up to third. Along with former Norwich forward Steven Naismith bagging nine goals for the season, it has been Hearts’ defensive stability playing a huge part in their rise up the table. Winning four of their last five matches at the Tynecastle Stadium, Wednesday’s hosts have recorded clean sheets in all of those victories. In fact, the Purples have now conceded just two goals in over 450 minutes of action in Edinburgh. Given Livingston’s struggles in the final third, Levein should be confident of extending their clean sheet tally. Slumping to a 3-0 loss away at Motherwell on Sunday, Gary Holt’s side have now lost their last six matches on the bounce and haven’t found the net in any of their last four. Still looking for their first domestic goal of 2019, we’re backing Hearts to come away with the three points and yet another clean sheet intact.

Tip: Home win to nil @ 6/4

19:45 St Mirren vs Motherwell 

Still sat adrift at the bottom of the Scottish Premiership table and coming off the back of a 4-0 hammering against Rangers, it’s not surprising that many have tipped St Mirren for the drop this season. Now enduring a woeful run of form that has seen them lose their last five league matches on the bounce, it will be the hosts continued defensive issues giving Oran Kearney the biggest headache. Already shipping 50 goals this campaign and holding the worse defensive record in Scotland’s top-flight, St Mirren have now conceded 11 goals in just their last three appearances. While the hosts might be enduring a woeful run in 2019, the same cannot be said for a resurgent Motherwell side. Picking up a 3-0 win over Livingston last weekend, Steve Robinson’s men have won their last three matches on the bounce and are yet to concede a single goal on that winning run. More impressive, now winning three of their last four matches on the road, with that one defeat coming against Celtic, another win on Wednesday could see Motherwell climb into the top half of the table.

Tip: Away win @ 11/10

20:05 West Brom vs Brighton 

Starting with Wednesday’s hosts, while West Brom might be coming off the back of a 3-2 loss to fellow playoff contenders Middlesbrough last weekend, Darren Moore will believe his side have a real chance to bounce back in midweek. In an FA Cup that has already seen a number of Premier League sides crash out in the early stages, the Baggies have started 2019 in impressive fashion. Now losing just one of their last five matches across all competitions, West Brom have continued to show their scintillating form in the final third. Led by Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez, the Baggies’ 59 goals scored is the highest tally of any team in the Championship this season. Although Moore’s men might be enjoying their start to the New Year, the same can not be said for Brighton. Playing out a 0-0 draw with Watford over the weekend, the Seagulls have failed to win any of their last five matches and also shipped four against Fulham in their last outing on the road. Now winning just one of their last six matches away from the Amex, we’re backing West Brom to book their spot in the fifth round of this year’s FA Cup.

Tip: Home win @ 21/10
