The international break has arrived but that doesn’t mean that domestic football has stopped. On Tuesday night we take a look at the EFL trophy to find an accumulator.
Barnsley to beat Grimsby Town
Barnsley have enjoyed back-to-back away wins in the league, with two 2-0 successes significantly improving their indifferent start. With Devante Cole and Max Watters, they are always going to be capable of scoring goals, and even with expected changes they should be able to overcome League Two Grimsby.
The Mariners enjoyed their best win of the season against Gilingham but they may not have the squad depth to follow it up with another win away at Oakwell.
Accrington Stanley to beat Carlisle United
Accy were beaten by an incredibly strong Notts County side this weekend, but they’ve enjoyed a bright start to the season. John Coleman has got his side fighting for the play-off spots in League Two and as a result, they could spring a surprise against League One Carlisle.
The Blues have endured a testing start to life in the third tier, but managed to pick up their first win against a disappointing Shrewsbury side. With all eyes on survival, this competition could be at the bottom of their priority list.
Wrexham to beat Newcastle United U21
This is a short price, but a good pick. Wrexham are finally starting to get going in League Two and after a weekend win, will want to follow it up here, with dreams of Wembley. On the whole, U21 sides from the Premier League have been desperately poor in this competition, and Newcastle’s young guns could be blown away in Wales.
Bristol Rovers to beat Cheltenham Town
After just one win this season, Bristol Rovers are in need of a positive result. They’ve been leaking goals, but also found the net in most matches, drawing three of six League One matches so far.
Cheltenham are struggling for goals. They are low on confidence, haven’t found the net in five games and currently sit bottom of League One. The home side will fancy themselves to bag a big win here.
