With 70 minutes on the clock last week, we were looking good for a winner but a Forest Green equaliser at Gillingham took us off course before Boreham Wood got a 89th-minute leveller to ensure we missed out.

This week we once again go four-games deep at a price just north of 11/1 as of the time of writing...

Saturday Accumulator Tips:

  • Back Peterborough United to Win in Lincoln City vs Peterborough United @ 5/6
  • Back Wycombe Wanderers to Win in Wycombe Wanderers vs Fleetwood Town @ 4/5
  • Back Crewe Alexandra to Win in Crewe Alexandra vs Salford City @ 10/11
  • Back MK Dons to Win in MK Dons vs Gillingham @ Evens
  • Overall Odds - 11.6/1

Leg 1 - Lincoln City vs Peterborough United - Away Win @ 5/6

I had a good look at the FA Cup ties but it is always just so tough to guess which managers are taking the competition seriously and which are seeing it as a nuisance. Therefore, I’ve swerved the main games of the weekend and am taking on four games from deep in the Football League.

First up is this one from the LNER Stadium where mid-table Lincoln are hosting high-flying Peterborough. The visitors make the hour or so journey up the A1 in fine fettle, having won three-straight games to put themselves just a point behind Portsmouth at the top-of-the-table.

Interestingly, they’ve won all of those games by the odd goal in matches where both BTTS and Over 2.5 has been a winner. The win at Pride Park on NY Day was very much one to note as they came back with a late equaliser before Ricky-Jade Jones won it deep into added-on time.

Darren Ferguson is a top manager at this level and considering the lack of form and availability of star-man Jonson Clarke-Harris this season, it says plenty that he’s still getting his side playing at such a high-level.

Lincoln looked like a decent outfit early doors but their form in recent weeks has been abysmal. They haven’t won a match in any competition since the end of November. That has coincided with slipping down the league table and the play-offs look an outside bet at best. Considering the form of both outfits, the away win feels like a strong play here.

Leg 2 - Wycombe Wanderers vs Fleetwood Town - Home Win @ 4/5

A home defeat to Portsmouth last Saturday made it five-straight games with no points for Fleetwood and the Lancashire-based club now sit plumb last at the foot of the EFL League 1 table.

As a Pompey fan who lives up in the North West, I was able to see that game and my lot really weren’t any good but boy they didn’t need to be. In the first 45 minutes, I’m not sure that the home side strung more than three or four passes together in our half. It was an insanely passive performance, even for a team in a bad run of form.

The second 45 was a bit better but apart from a free-kick deep into added-on time, I never felt like the home side would score and if they play like that on Saturday, it will surely be a sixth-straight defeat for Charlie Adam’s side.

This selection is very much focused on just how bad I thought Fleetwood looked last weekend. Wycombe have only enjoyed one three-point haul in the past two months but they’ve been tough to beat in front of their own fans. You have to go back to the 9th of December to find a match at Adams Park where they’ve gone away with nothing.

I fully expect Matt Bloomfield’s men to squeak out a low-scoring win.

Leg 3 - Crewe Alexandra vs Salford City - Home Win @ 10/11

If only Salford were playing Millwall away on Saturday, that would be such an easy pun about Gary Neville’s side heading into the Den. The Mornflake Stadium doesn’t exactly lend itself to such low-hanging fruit alas.

What the Ammies are facing is a side in red-hot form who are very much in the mix to get out of EFL League 2 at the end of the campaign automatically.

Crewe have gone on the road twice this month and taken down promotion-rivals in Mansfield and Barrow. They are two of the most impressive results of January and put Lee Bell’s side within a point of the top-three. Those victories are part of a four-game winning-streak going back to NY Day.

Salford have brought in a well-known manager in the lower leagues to help arrest their slide down the table but it is going to be tough for Karl Robinson to turn things around. They are undefeated in his three games in charge, which includes a solid win on the road at Crawley. Crewe however are a different kettle of fish and are playing at about as high a level as anyone in the division.

I’ll take Crewe at home to make it five-straight W’s.

Leg 4 - MK Dons vs Gillingham - Home Win @ Evens

Our final game of the fourfold come from Stadium MK where the home side are in a really rich vein of form when playing in front of their own supporters. It is now four-straight victories at home, although it should be noted that tenth-placed AFC Wimbledon was probably the best win of that run.

Gillingham make the trip up from Kent in my bad books having failed to beat Forest Green Rovers last Saturday, which helped make last week's column a loser. This isn’t a vengeful pick though, I just like the way Mike Williamson has set up MK Dons since his appointment and he looks like a genuine up-and-coming manager.

If this game was at Priestfield then I’d probably be giving it a swerve, but MK Dons at home should be favoured to beat most sides at this level the way they are playing at the moment. Getting Even-money feels like a good price and boosts this fourfold up to double-figures.
