Football Accumulator Tips – 5th September
Barnsley to beat Shrewsbury
Barnsley have been inconsistent at best so far this season, but they are generally strong at Oakwell and they face a side who are winless in League One so far. Shrewsbury played much better than their result suggested against Burton, but that was in front of their faithful home crowd. Lee Johnson's side got back to winning ways by beating Scunthorpe in the JPT in midweek with another goal for Marley Watkins. In the transfer window, Barnsley added Michael Smith from Swindon who is a natural goalscorer at this level, whereas Shrewsbury lost their star midfielder Ryan Woods, who headed to Brentford. They added Larnell Cole on loan from Fulham as a possible replacement, but it reamins to be seen whether they miss the bundle of energy in midfield.
Gillingham to beat Doncaster
Gillingham will have let a number of people down on the accumulators last weekend by conceding a last minute equaliser to Peterborough. They will look to bounce back at the Priestfield here against a Donny side who only captured their first victory last weekend against Fleetwood. Justin Edinburgh has put together an impressive young side and he kept hold of all of his squad during the transfer window. Bradley Dack has been the predominent goalscorer for the Kent side, but Cody McDonald will soon be back to full fitness and they will be even more dangerous when he is lurking in the box.
Scunthorpe v Blackpool – Scunthorpe to score over 1.5 team goals
It's been a torrid season for Blackpool so far, they were thumped by Walsall last week and their manager Neil McDonald declared his side 'not good enough' earlier in the season. Yet, for whatever reason, they've failed to add to their squad and look vulnerable against Scunny here. Scunthorpe are certainly no pushovers and with their paltry goal return, it's hard to see Blackpool even scoring against them. Paddy Madden and Kevin Von Veen both netted last weekend and the strike duo will be assisted by Gary McSheffrey. It's hard to see Blackpool conceding any less than 2
Plymouth Argyle to beat Stevenage
Plymouth have started the season really impressively under Derek Adams. Critics wondered how quickly he'd be able to blend the existing squad and his new Scottish imports, but the answer is seamlessly. They have started like a house on fire, beating some decent opponents in the shape of Northampton & Carlisle. Their only defeat came at the hands of favourites Portsmouth and that was late on. They look too strong for Stevenage here, who have improved under Teddy Sheringham, a draw against Dagenham was not bad, but they look weaker than their opponents here.
Morecambe to beat Yeovil
A few Morecambe players have come out this week and declared themselves 'fitter than ever' including midweek goalscorer Tom Barkhuizen, who notched the second goal against Walsall. They are clearly in good shape, scoring 6 goals inside a week, with a number of different scorers and I feel they may be too strong for Yeovil, who have been inconsistent at best. Paul Sturrock's men may struggle to cope with pace of Morecambe who set about teams early in the game and they may well be a goal down inside 10 minutes if they aren't careful.
