View our expert’s Football Accumulator Tips & Predictions for Saturday.
Slowly but surely Wayne Rooney is turning things around at Derby County. Four wins in their last five have moved them out of the drop zone but they’re still a long way off safety and need to keep their foot on the pedal.
A trip to Wycombe provides the Rams with another opportunity to collect three points on Tuesday. Wanderers are rooted to the bottom of the table although they notched a good win at Huddersfield on Saturday – their first in the league in 2021.
Only Birmingham City have a worse home record than Wycombe and in-form Derby can grind out another win for gaffer Rooney.
Salford City remain unbeaten at home but too many draws have hindered their progress up the table this season although they’re still well within reach of a play-off place in ninth.
They returned to winning ways with a brilliant 4-1 win over top-of-the-table Cambridge last midweek after a run of five away games in six, of which they won just once. A rampant first half display saw them take a three-goal lead and effectively kill the game before the half-time whistle in a display that Richie Wellens has been longing to see since his appointment in November.
Opponents Barrow have proven a tough nut to crack, even for some of the better teams in League Two despite being second bottom of the table, but they’ve picked up just seven points from a possible 36 on the road, the worst record in the division.
If Salford can replicate last week’s performance they should land the 5/6 odds here.
Bristol Rovers parted company with Paul Tisdale last week after just three months at the helm at The Gas. Under Tisdale they’ve lost nine of their last 12 and not won a match since January 2nd, so it was no surprise to see him relieved of his duties.
Director of Football, Tommy Widdrington will take charge for Pompey’s visit to the Memorial Stadium as Rovers ponder their next managergial move.
Portsmouth suffered two damaging blows at the end of January, losing at home to promotion-chasing rivals Hull and Lincoln within the space of four days but they’ve bounced back with two wins and a draw since. Kenny Jackett will see this match as an another opportunity to pick up three points, which if results elsewhere go their way could see them back up in to second.
With Bristol Rovers in disarray 3/4 on the away win is worth taking.
Promotion chasing County should be too good for King’s Lynn in the National League on Tuesday. The Magpies sit fifth in the table but have a couple of games in hand on most of the teams above them and have won four of their last six – only dropping points against Torquay (1st) and Hartlepool (3rd).
King’s Lynn have found the going tough after promotion and have taken just one point against teams in the top six of the table. Neal Ardley’s side can add Notts County to that statistic.
