Our Saturday football accumulator is an 11/2 treble that comes courtesy of selections from all…
It’s the second weekend of the new football season and we’re hoping it will provide us with our first treble victory thanks to this 6/1 shot at Coral.
We were fairly unlucky last Saturday as Everton were the only side to let us down. Let’s hope we can go one better this time and seal the perfect weekend boom.
Swansea City V Newcastle United
Premier League rivals Swansea and Newcastle both started the new season with well-fought draws last weekend. While both will be eager to follow that up with more points at the Liberty, we think it’s Garry Monk’s hosts who are set to start their home season with a bang.
The Swans may have had a slice of good fortune against Chelsea, but they were brilliant at Stamford Bridge and were fully deserving of their point. Meanwhile, they’ve recruited well over the summer and the Welshmen will also be pleased to have seen new signing Andre Ayew cap his debut with a goal.
Newcastle will feel more confident under new boss Steve McClaren and a decent draw against Southampton offers positive indications. Georginio Wijnaldum has opened his Premier League account too, which is good. Nonetheless, the Magpies have a lot of improving to do after a dismal second half to 2014/15.
Meanwhile, Swansea won nine and lost just five of their home matches in 2014/15. With the momentum of their opening day performance behind them, they should seal the three points here.

Morecambe V Accrington Stanley
League Two side Morecambe have lost both of their opening matches in 2015/16 and will be desperate to get off the mark as they welcome Accrington to the Globe Arena. It won’t be easy, but the Shrimps can finally give their fans something to shout about.
The hosts have got a real shortage in attack, which is evidenced by the failure to find the target so far. However, the visitors aren’t exactly heralded for keeping clean sheets on their travels so the home side can be confident about finally breaking their duck.
Accrington will have been satisfied with their 1-1 draw against Luton on the opening day. However, they could be a little drained after playing 120 minutes against Championship side Hull in Tuesday’s Capital One Cup clash. With home advantage also against them, it could be a tough afternoon for John Coleman’s club.
Last year’s corresponding fixture ended in a draw. On this occasion, though, we’re backing the home win.

Woking V Altrincham
Garry Hill’s Cardinals were unlucky to miss out on the Conference play-offs last year and will be hoping to achieve that goal in 2015/16. In truth, they should have no problem picking up their second win of the season here.
After a narrow defeat at recently relegated Tranmere on the opening day, the hosts opened up their home campaign with a routine 2-0 win over newly promoted Bromley. Confidence will be high for a team that boasts the talents of Guiseppe Sole and Scott Rendell. Quite frankly, the Cards should fancy their chances of goals at Kingfield.
Altrincham suffered a difficult campaign in 2014/15 and have started this term in similar fashion with back-to-back defeats against Forest Green and Guiseley. Lee Sinnott’s men are also yet to find the target in 2015/16, which will be another huge cause for concern.
Anything can happen in this league, especially at this early stage. Nonetheless, the hosts must be fancied to prevail.
