December 3rd: Saturday’s Football Accumulator – 6/1

While the World Cup might once again steal center stage this weekend, England’s lower leagues have a string of interesting affairs. So, for those of you looking to stick on a Saturday acca, we have found a handful of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.

Saturday December 3rd

BST 12:30 MK Dons vs Burton

While MK Dons might have enjoyed a stellar run of form when opening November, Liam Manning’s men have failed to keep up that momentum. Last seen getting hit with an action-packed 3-2 loss away at Portsmouth while on FA Cup duties, Saturday’s hosts have now lost three of their last four matchups across all formats. Likewise, last seen in League One action suffering a 3-1 loss at the hands of Barnsley, the Buckinghamshire-based outfit are at the heart of a relegation scrap. Sat six points adrift of safety and in a real uphill battle, the Whites have continued to show some rather glaring issues at the back. Facing what is a must-win showdown when their fellow relegation scrappers come to town this weekend, Manning’s side will be desperate to pick up a much-needed boost. However, watching Burton extend on their own FA Cup adventure last week thanks to a 6-1 romp against lower-league Chippenham, the Brewers are enjoying an eye-catching run of form. Unbeaten in each of their previous five contests across all competitions, Dino Maamria’s men could be smelling the chance to spring an upset outside of Staffordshire. Likewise, playing out back-to-back 2-2 and 3-3 draws against Plymouth and Charlton last month, the Yellows have suffered just a pair of defeats since back on October 4th. It should be noted, with Saturday’s opponents seeing each of their last four straight appearances finish with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.

Tip: Both teams to score @ 8/11

12:30 York City vs Wrexham

Putting in a thumping display last weekend as they cruised their way to a 4-1 victory at home against Farnborough on FA Cup duties, Wrexham are in the midst of what has been a remarkable purple patch. Only continuing to gain a string of plaudits since opening the 2022/23 campaign, it is no secret that the Dragons have their sights set on securing a Football League return this season. With the mood in their camp at a red-hot high, Phil Parkinson’s men are unbeaten in each of their last 12 straight appearances across all competitions – a run that stems back to October 4th. Opening this weekend’s fixtures holding a one-point buffer at the top of the National League table, the ex-Bolton boss will be calling on his high-flying squad to lay down another marker on Saturday lunchtime. Shipping just a single fifth-tier strike throughout the whole of November, Wrexham will be looking to cash in on a struggling York squad. Last seen putting in another toothless display as they slumped to a 1-0 loss away at Dorking, Saturday’s hosts have found themselves come tumbling down the National League table. With some in their camp fearing that they could get dragged into a relegation scrap, the Minstermen have failed to win any of their last eight straight outings. Likewise, collecting just a single point from their last six appearances, we’re backing an away victory for the leading promotion contenders here.

Tip: Wrexham win & Under 4.5 goals @ 21/20

12:30 Farnborough vs Hampton & Richmond

While Farnborough might have seen Wrexham end their FA Cup adventure last weekend, that result shouldn’t have dampened the mood in Spencer Day’s camp. Although the Hampshire-based outfit might have only made their sixth-tier return this season, they are enjoying what has been an eye-catching run of form. Suffering just a single defeat from any of their previous 12 contests across all formats – a run that stems all the way back to September 27th – Saturday’s hosts should be smelling a golden chance here. Skyrocketing their way up the table, it should also be noted that Farnborough have collected seven points from their last three National League South appearances at Cherrywood Road. With that run highlighted by a stellar 3-1 victory against Dartford on November 12th, Day’s men will also be boosted by their most recent meeting against Saturday’s opponents. Extending on their FA Trophy run as they claimed a 1-0 victory when they made the trip to Hampton & Richmond last month, the Yellows are rightfully tipped as a standout pick here. On the flip side, suffering a deserved 2-0 loss at home against Dover last weekend, the Beavers are in the midst of an extended nightmare. In fact, the Londoners have now lost six of their previous seven contests and will be more than aware that they will face another tough challenge on Saturday lunchtime. Hit with that 1-0 defeat when they welcomed Farnborough to the capital on November 19th, a similar outcome can be found at appealing odds.
