March 25th: Saturday’s Football Accumulator – 7/1

With England’s lower leagues stealing center stage this weekend, we are looking forward to what looks set to be an eye-catching string of affairs. So, for those of you looking to place a Saturday acca, we have found a handful of helpful tips that are worth taking note of.

Saturday March 25th

BST 15:00 Portsmouth vs Port Vale

While Portsmouth might have endured a brief wobble earlier in the month, Saturday’s hosts have come roaring back in some style. Along with cruising their way to a 3-1 romp away at Accrington Stanley on March 14th, John Mousinho’s men were last seen putting in another impressive display. Eventually claiming a deserved 2-0 victory at home against Bristol Rovers, the south coast outfit should be smelling the chance to make another statement here. Although Pompey might be needing a minor miracle if they’re to claim a play-off spot this season, Mousinho’s side should be boosted by their largely successful flurry on home soil. On a run that is highlighted by a 4-0 romp against Cheltenham last month, Portsmouth have lost just one of their last seven contests at Fratton Park – a run that stems back to New Year’s Day. Rightfully tipped as a standout pick here, Saturday’s hosts should be looking to cash in on a Port Vale squad who are enduring an extended wobble. Last seen getting hit with an action-packed 3-2 loss at home against Burton, Darrell Clarke’s side have won just a pair of their last 11 appearances across all formats. With Pompey claiming a 1-0 win when the two sides met for their reverse showdown back in August, we are expecting a similar outcome this weekend.

Tip: Portsmouth win @ 21/20

15:00 Barrow vs AFC Wimbledon

Although Barrow might have only just about clung to their League Two status last season, Saturday’s hosts have gained a string of plaudits this time around. While Pete Wild’s men might have been last seen getting hit with a disappointing 1-0 loss away at Harrogate, the Bluebirds should still find the mood in their camp at a real high. Although the Cumbria-based outfit might know that they will need a minor miracle if they are to snatch a famous play-off spot in 2023, the former Halifax boss should have a top-half finish at the top of his agenda. Losing just one of their previous six League Two outings – a run that stems back to February 14th – Barrow have also largely impressed with their defensive resolve. Aside from their close-fought 1-0 defeat at the hands of Harrogate last weekend, that is just the second goal that Wild’s side have shipped in their last six appearances. Hoping to claim a Holker Street boost on Saturday afternoon, the Bluebirds should be relishing Wimbledon’s arrival here. Remarkably collecting just a single point from any of their last six League Two showdowns, Johnnie Jackson’s men are firmly at the heart of a fourth-tier nightmare. Likewise, mustering just one win since opening 2023, a home victory can be found at appealing odds in Cumbria.

Tip: Barrow win & Under 4.5 goals @ 7/5

15:00 Torquay vs Dagenham & Redbridge

Left disappointed last weekend as they eventually had to settle for a 1-1 draw at home against Oldham, Dagenham & Redbridge are seeking some much-needed recent stability. While Saturday’s guests might have claimed a 2-1 victory against York earlier in the month, that is the only win that Ben Strevens’ side have claimed from their previous four National League appearances. Almost finding themselves sat in fifth-tier limbo, the Daggers have also shown some extended defensive issues. On a run that is highlighted by a lively 3-2 loss at the hands of relegation scrappers Scunthorpe on February 18th, the Londoners have recorded just one National League clean sheet since the start of January. It should also be noted, including a 4-2 defeat against Oldham last month, Dagenham & Redbridge have lost four of their previous four showdowns on the road. On the flip side, although Torquay might have claimed a 1-1 draw away at Gateshead last weekend, Saturday’s hosts are firmly at the heart of a relegation scrap. Now sat six points adrift of finding a route out of the drop zone, Gary Johnson’s side have gained a reputation for their lively outcomes. It is worth highlighting, with Torquay remarkably seeing each of their last 11 appearances finish with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
