League One Friday Accumulator: Portsmouth set to make Good Friday great

The Easter double-header is crunch time in League One for teams with sights on winning promotion or avoiding relegation and we kick off the weekend with a Good Friday accumulator which works out just over 23/1.

Friday four-fold acca:

Our League One four-fold selections are priced at around 23/1:

Portsmouth @ 13/8 
Charlton @ 9/5 
Shrewsbury v Peterborough over 2.5 goals @ 11/10 
Cheltenham or draw double chance @ 4/7

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

Pompey chiming up in promotion push

WhatMilton Keynes Dons v Portsmouth
WhereStadium MK, Milton Keynes
When15:00, Friday 7th April
OddsMilton Keynes Dons 13/8, Draw 12/5, Portsmouth 13/8

The Pompey chimes are ringing a lot more purposefully after a late-winter charge which has just about got them in the play-offs mix. 

They have taken 10 points from their last 12, including road wins at Accrington and Bristol Rovers, so will have little to fear from a trip to North Bucks to take on Milton Keynes. 

Portsmouth's only defeats since New Year's Day have been against sides above them in League One as John Mousinho finally gets a tune out of a group who are still 33/1 to be promoted yet find themselves just three points outside of the top six. 

Joe Pigott is back from a ban to add options up front alongside red-hot Colby Bishop and Pompey can outclass a Dons' side who are on a decent run themselves as they strive to avoid the drop, though a trio of 1-0 wins over lowly Cambridge, Accrington and Morecambe were scruffy and unconvincing.

Six-shooters Charlton can turn off the Gas

WhatBristol Rovers v Charlton
WhereMemorial Stadium, Bristol
When15:00, Friday 7th April
OddsBristol Rovers 6/4, Draw 12/5, Charlton 9/5

Another away team to be sided with on Friday are Charlton who head down the M4 to take on Joey Barton's Bristol Rovers

The Addicks have recovered from going four games without a goal to going five without defeat culminating in last weekend's 6-0 drubbing of Shrewsbury. 

The progress being made under Dean Holden is obvious and they look to be taking on the Gas at a good time, with Barton's men having not played for three weeks after back-to-back home losses. 

Indeed, only Forest Green have conceded more home goals than Barton's boys. Rovers are also without their excellent centre-back Jarell Quansah, the young England Under-20 ace and Liverpool loanee suspended after a late red against Portsmouth.

Goal taps to be turned on at the Meadow

WhatShrewsbury v Peterborough
WhereNew Meadow, Shrewsbury
When15:00, Friday 7th April
OddsShrewsbury 9/4, Draw 9/4, Peterborough 13/10

When Peterborough last visited Shrewsbury, in the FA Cup in November, the Shrews ran out 3-1 winners and these two play-off chasers can produce another high scoring affair at New Meadow. 

Posh head west on the back of an uncharacteristic 0-0 draw at home to Oxford, a result that nudged them back into the top six. 

But goal-less draws won't get the job done given the calibre of side around them and Darren Ferguson's team will be positive at Shrewsbury as they always are – only three other sides boast more shots on target per game than them. 

It was 2-1 to Posh when they met last month and Jonson Clarke-Harris has got to be licking his lips at the idea of fronting up a defence who were hit for six at Charlton last weekend. Take the 11/10 there are over 2.5 goals.

WhatLincoln City v Cheltenham
WhereSincil Bank, Lincoln
When15:00, Friday 7th April
OddsLincoln City 13/10, Draw 11/5, Cheltenham 9/4

Cheltenham have powered away from imminent relegation danger with a six-match unbeaten streak which they can extend to seven at Sincil Bank. 

The Robins have taken 12 points from a possible 18, the pick of the results being a 3-0 win at Peterborough and a 2-2 draw with Sheffield Wednesday. 

Alfie May continues to score goals and he'll fancy his chances at Lincoln, a side who have lost any goal threat of late. 

The Imps, hit hard by injuries of late, have not scored more than once in a match in any of their last 11 games, six of which have ended in low-scoring draws. 

The stalemate is a big player – Lincoln have had a league-high 19 draws this season, a 50 percent strike rate – but have the visitors on your side as well. The draw or Cheltenham double chance is a 4/7 shot.
