Football accumulator tips: Vale can secure another Crewe win

It may be international week but the fixtures continue to keep rolling for the teams in League One and League Two, with plenty of EFL Trophy matches to look forward to this week.

We have put together an accumulator for a Tuesday treble which stands to pay out at 9/1, with matches that include teams from both divisions.

EFL Trophy midweek accumulator 

Port Vale to beat Crewe Alexandra @ 4/6 
Gillingham v Leyton Orient – Number of Goals in Match: Under 2 goals @ 5/2 
Bristol Rovers to beat Cheltenham @ 3/4 

Accumulator pays out at 9/1

Odds were correct at the time of writing and subject to change.

In-form Vale too strong for the Alex

WhatPort Vale v Crewe Alexandra
WhereVale Park, Stoke-on-Trent
When19:45 Tuesday 5th September 2023
OddsPort Vale 4/6, Draw 14/5, Crewe 16/5

Despite being in different divisions, these two teams played just a week ago in the EFL Cup – when Port Vale went through on penalties. Andy Crosby’s men have bounced back from an opening day 7-0 defeat at Barnsley to be unbeaten in their next seven matches and sit fourth in League One. 

Vale highlighted their quality with a 2-1 win at Oxford, who were above them in the table prior to Saturday’s clash at the Kassam Stadium. 

The hosts have won all four of their home games to date this season and have kept clean sheets in each of their last three at Vale Park. Crewe have made an average start to the season, sitting 11th in League Two with nine points from their opening six games. 

Although they knocked Sunderland out of the EFL Cup on penalties at the Stadium of Light, the Alex have picked up just one point from their two league away games. 

Vale are unbeaten in their last six meetings with Crewe and in James Wilson, they have a striker who has two goals to his name this term.

Gills and O’s low on goals

WhatGillingham v Leyton Orient
WherePriestfield Stadium, Gillingham
When19:00 Tuesday 5th September 2023
OddsGillingham 6/5, Draw 23/10, Leyton Orient 2/1

Despite being in different divisions, there are just six places between the two sides with Gillingham third in League Two and Orient 20th in League One.

It’s unlikely that either team will be amongst the EFL top scorers come May, with both sides short on goals in the early stages of the campaign. 

After winning their first four league games 1-0, Neil Harris’ men have lost three on the spin in all competitions and have failed to score in their last two league matches. 

Leyton Orient have just four points from their opening six games in League One and their away form will be a major concern for manager Richie Wellens. 

There have been three defeats and one draw on the road for the O’s, who have scored just twice in those four matches.

Struggling Cheltenham facing another defeat

WhatBristol Rovers v Cheltenham
WhereMemorial Stadium, Bristol
When19:45, Tuesday 5th September 2023
OddsBristol Rovers 3/4, Draw 13/5, Cheltenham 16/5

Two teams struggling in League One meet at the Memorial Stadium, as Bristol Rovers and Cheltenham go head-to-head. Rovers have collected just six points from their first six games and are 17th, seven places and five points ahead of Tuesday’s opponents. 

It always looked like being a tough season for Cheltenham, after losing last season’s top scorer Alfie May, and the start of the season has highlighted that. The Robins have yet to find the back of the net in their seven games to date and have just one point to their name so far. 

In contrast, Joey Barton’s men have scored in all but one of their six League One encounters and did the double over Cheltenham last season – scoring six goals in the two meetings.
