After just two games took place over the international break, the rest of League One will resume their seasons this weekend. We’ve taken a look through the fixtures to come up with an accumulator for you.

League 1 Accumulator:

  • Charlton to beat Stevenage at 13/5
  • Portsmouth to beat Derby County at 9/4
  • Bolton Wanderers to beat Reading at 11/10

Treble pays 24/1

Charlton to beat Stevenage

Let’s start by saying that clearly this is an adventurous treble, but the prices are too good to turn down. Backing league leaders Stevenage, who have been excellent so far this term, to lose at home to 17th place Charlton, is certainly a shock on paper. 

But Charlton have a superior squad on paper to Stevenage, and now have Michael Appleton at the helm. With Alfie May, Karoy Anderson and Michael Hector, they should be able to get themselves up the table, and we are backing Appleton’s new manager bounce to start immediately. 

Stevenage conceded late against Carlisle United last time out to draw 2-2, and haven’t won either of their last two matches at the LAMEX. Steve Evans is a miracle worker, but we are backing the away side to knock the top dogs off their perch. 

Portsmouth to beat Derby County

If one longshot away win wasn’t enough for you this weekend, how about another? Pre-season favourites Derby have had a sticky start to the new season, winning three and losing three of their opening six games so far. They lost 2-1 to Bolton last time out, and have also been beaten by the same scoreline by Wigan and Oxford at Pride Park. 

Meanwhile Portsmouth are doing well under John Mousinho. They are currently unbeaten, having won three and drawn three of their six League One fixtures so far. Importantly, they’ve conceded just two goals during that time and their rock-solid defence could help them to all three points here. From what we’ve seen, they will be serious challengers this season.

Bolton Wanderers to beat Reading

Okay, this one isn’t a shock at 11/10, but it is another away win. Bolton were much-fancied during pre-season, and they’ve delivered on the pitch so far, winning four of their six matches. Meanwhile Reading continue to lurch from disaster to disaster, having another three points deducted this week for failing to deposit funds into a designated account. 

One of these teams is on the up, the other is in turmoil. That should play out on the pitch this weekend and Bolton will have top spot in their sights.
