Looking for some football accumulator tips for this Saturday’s English action? You’ve come to the right place.
We’ve put three teams together in this treble, and have every reason to think that it will be rolling in at odds just shy of 7/2. It might not be the biggest win of the season, but it’ll certainly improve our Saturday night.
Southampton v Newcastle United
Last week’s late defeat at Norwich felt like a huge moment for Newcastle and has left the Magpies utterly deflated in their bid for Premier League survival. Things won’t get any easier as they make the trip to St Mary’s, and it could prove to be another disappointing afternoon for the Geordies.
The arrival of Rafa Benitez has somewhat lifted the performances, but results have continued to elude the struggling visitors. Even after the two goals at Carrow Road, the Magpies boast just nine goals on the road, which could be a real problem against a Saints defence that’s looked very strong since the return of Fraser Forster.
With Ronald Koeman’s men still hoping to gain Europa League qualification, a home game against one of the division’s worst sides is a must win fixture. The attacking quality of Graziano Pelle and co should give them a fantastic chance of three points, and if they do play to their potential then the home fans should leave the stadium happy come 5PM.
Time is running out for Newcastle, and this is likely to be another dagger into the hearts of the Geordie nation. Back the Saints to go marching on.
Wigan Athletic v Coventry City
In League One, Wigan Athletic have found top gear at just the right moment and are now top of the pile with just six games to go. Gary Caldwell’s men are now in a great position to win the title and can give themselves another huge lift by registering a home win against an out-of-form Coventry.
The visitors had started the season with such promise but now look destined for mid-table obscurity. It’s been nearly 50 years since the Sky Blues claimed a top six finish in any division, and a run of four games without a win is likely to continue as they visit the DW Stadium.
Loanee Alan Armstrong hasn’t scored a league goal for some time now while the rest of Tony Mowbray’s squad has hardly helped ease the pressure. Meanwhile, Wigan’s Will Grigg is now up to 19 goals for the season too and has the support of Michael Jacobs and co to fire the Latics to another vital victory here.
Wigan are unbeaten at home in 2016, we have no reason to think that run will be ending. Home win.
Guiseley v Cheltenham Town
After the disappointment of relegation last term, Cheltenham Town have done an exceptional job as they look to bounce back to the Football League at the first attempt and are now closing in on the title and promotion. An away trip to Guiseley won’t be easy on Saturday, but with the end in sight, we can’t see the Robin surrendering their position.
Gary Johnson’s men have looked unstoppable since signing Dan Holman, who has 11 in 14. His goals, along with those Danny Wright and Billy Waters should be enough to seal a crucial win against a home defence that’s conceded 32 times in 20 home games.
The hosts have scored 26 at Nethermoor Park, but Mark Bower’s men are now 10 games without a win. Even if they do manage to get themselves on the scoreboard, it’s unlikely to be enough against the division’s best.
Cheltenham won the reverse clash 5-0. They might be made to work a little harder away from Whaddon Road, but we’d still expect them to grab the points.
