Last Saturday our 24/1 fivefold came up just short as ten-man Bolton were unable to beat Peterborough United. Our other four tips all came in as Ipswich, Leicester, Middlesbrough and Portsmouth all came good.

We go five-games deep again this Saturday and at the time of writing, this too is a 24/1 fivefold with Betfred…

Saturday Accumulator Tips – 30th September, 2023

  • Back Preston North End to Win in Preston North End vs West Bromwich Albion @ 11/8
  • Back Milton Keynes Dons to Win in Milton Keynes Dons vs Harrogate Town @ 8/11
  • Back Swindon Town to Win in Swindon Town vs Grimsby Town @ 4/5
  • Back Barnet to Win in Kidderminster Harriers vs Barnet @ 11/10
  • Back Dundee United to Win in Dundee United vs Queen’s Park @ 8/11
  • Overall Odds – 24/1

We start Saturday’s fivefold for the 3PM coupon at Deepdale where the home side have been sneakily good all season long and currently find themselves in third spot in the Championship. They were top going into last week’s fixtures but a 1-1 draw at Rotherham saw them slip a couple of places.

Ryan Lowe is doing a fine job at Preston and the fact they are the only side currently undefeated in the division says plenty. They are a very impressive four-from-four in front of their own fans so far this season having beaten Sunderland, Swansea, Plymouth and Birmingham already.

West Brom travel up to Lancashire having secured draws in their previous three league games on their travels, at Leeds, Bristol City and Watford. This fact is probably why we are getting odds against for the home win despite their respective league positions (3rd vs 12th). I like the lowkey consistency of the Lilywhites and think they are a good price to get the ball rolling for us here. This game doesn’t appear in eith my Saturday BTTS column nor my over 2.5 Goals accumulator this weekend but recent history would suggest that it would be a solid play to add to either.

Next we travel south to MK Dons where the home side have stumbled in recent weeks following a strong start to their season. The home side haven’t won a league game in the month of September, not exactly great form but they welcome in a Harrogate Town side experiencing a similar run of results.

The Yorkshire based club did win last time out but that was at home to a Salford side in freefall. Outside of that victory, you have to go back to the final game in August to see them secure three points.

I’ve put this game in the accumulator for this week because it is time for MK Dons to turn it around. They are on paper at least a playoff team and failing to beat bottom-of-the-table Sutton last Saturday must have been a real eye opener and no doubt boss Graham Alexander has let them know all about how they’ve not been playing well enough recently.

This is the type of home fixture against a side lower in the table that teams with aspirations to go up, win. Big bounceback game here.

We have a second game from League Two where I’ve gone with Swindon to beat Grimsby as our third leg of the five.

Just like Preston further up the column, the Robins own a 100% home record in league play having beaten Crawley 6-0, Sutton 5-3 and Walsall 2-0 in their three games at the County Ground so far this season.

Grimsby have failed to earn a win away from Blundell Park, with their two points coming from draws at Bradford and Walsall. Swindon have the best goalscoring record in the division with 24 in just eight games.

Jake Long has already found the back of the net nine times, Daniel Kemp six and the veteran Charlie Austin has three to his name. I like the home side to overwhelm the visitors to make it four wins from four.

Down in the National League, bottom-of-the-table Kidderminster Harriers haven’t won since a 0-1 away win at York in early August and have taken just one point from six games in the month of September. That is a tough run and what you don’t need is an in-form and third-in-the-table Barnet side rolling into town but yet, that is what’ll happen on Saturday afternoon.

The away side have a pretty good record away from Hive London having already taken three points from games at Bromley, Boreham Wood and last time out at York, where they put four past the home side in a 2-4 victory.

Winning away from home is never easy but this is 24th vs 3rd with Kidderminster having lost four straight. I think the 11/10 we are getting is a good price and I think this is a solid play.

Our final game comes from the Scottish Championship where Dundee United are entertaining a Queen’s Park side whose early season form has deserted them somewhat.

The Spiders opened the season with three straight victories but they’ve failed to pick up a point in their following four games. Last time out they were taken down 2-5 at home to an Ayr United team who had only won once up until last Saturday. It is worrying times for Robin Veldman’s side.

Tannadice is going to be one of the toughest road games for any team in this division. The former European Cup semi-finalists are expected to be the dominant force in the Scottish Championship following their relegation from the SPL at the end of their last campaign.

Jim Goodwin’s side are unbeaten through six matches and sit top-of-the-table with 14 points from 18. Surprisingly both of the games where they’ve failed to win have come at home.

DU won’t get a much better chance to get a good run going in front of their own fans as they will Saturday, when a team severely lacking in confidence makes the one-and-a-half hour trip from Glasgow to Dundee. Home win for me.
