NTT20 Saturday Football Acca: Ipswich, MK Dons and Forest Green can land 8/1 boost

Ipswich boss Paul Cook
Paul Cook's Ipswich side can help Saturday NTT20 Podcast treble

The Not the Top 20 guys are seeing value in away sides in the EFL this weekend, with a boosted 8/1 treble in League One and Two...

"Stanley have conceded the most goals in the league, and with key defender Ross Sykes suspended for this game - and star striker Dion Charles sitting out at the moment - it’s hard to see them keeping a confident Ipswich at bay."

Tractor Boys to plough on

Accrington v Ipswich
Saturday, 15:00

Ipswich Town are no longer stuttering. Having conceded 15 goals in 6 winless games to start the campaign, it's now two clean sheets in their last three, and the wins have followed - the floodgates opened on Tuesday with a 6-0 win vs Doncaster. Paul Cook's side have scored two goals or more in 7 of 9 league games - teams can't live with the quality of Celina, Burns, Fraser and Bonne.

Accrington are on a tough run of form, conceding 12 goals in their last three games and being put away comfortably by Wigan (1-4) and Oxford (1-5) in the last two weeks, drawing with 10 man Morecambe 3-3 in between. This season, Stanley have beaten teams in 15th, 21st, 22nd and 24th position. They've lost to the sides in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 8th.

That gives a good idea of their level in this league. Ipswich may be 19th in the table, but are clearly a top team. Stanley have conceded the most goals in the league, and with key defender Ross Sykes suspended for this game - and star striker Dion Charles sitting out at the moment - it's hard to see them keeping a confident Ipswich at bay.

Back Ipswich to win at 7/5

MK Dons to cast aside this Doncaster side

Doncaster v MK Dons
Saturday, 15:00

Whether you prefer to study the league table or the underlying performance data, this match sees one of League One's best sides against undoubtedly its worst.

Doncaster manager Richie Wellens and his players refunded the fans that travelled to Ipswich on Tuesday, after a 6-0 defeat in which Donny mustered just one single shot. Their one league victory this season came in fortuitous circumstances against Morecambe, and there have been no signs of improvement in performance levels.

MK Dons' form-line of five wins and three draws in their last eight league games underlines their promotion credentials. A well-balanced squad that excels in creating goalscoring opportunities, and has a few stars in Matt O'Riley, Scott Twine and Troy Parrott.

MK Dons will be licking their lips at the way in which Doncaster crumbled on Tuesday, going from 0-2 down to 0-6 in the space of ten minutes.

Back MK Dons to win at 4/5

Greens can come true

Carlisle v Forest Green
Saturday, 15:00

This match sees the best team in League Two take on one that appears to be experiencing something of a crisis of confidence and footballing identity.

Carlisle's form is poor and performances are on the decline, leading to growing calls for Chris Beech's sacking. The way their heads dropped after going behind at Sutton last weekend was alarming and led to a chastening 0-4 defeat.

Beech's side set high standards for themselves for much of last season, but half of that side departed and it's clear that the intense, direct style of play doesn't suit the current crop.

Forest Green, by contrast, are very comfortable in their own skin. They've won three of four away from home so far. They've not conceded in four matches, and while two of those have ended 0-0, they were the better side in both and created enough to win the game. Expect the same this weekend.

Back Forest Green to win at 23/20
