League One Saturday Accumulator: Title-chasing Plymouth anchor 13/1 acca

It's the crunch part of the League One campaign where every point counts. We have selected a four-fold that pays 13/1 on Saturday's action.

With every third-tier outfit having only three or four games to go, there is little margin for error and the title race looks set to go down to the wire as only two points separate Plymouth, Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday.

The scrap for League One survival is also hotting up and, although Forest Green have already been relegated and Morecambe and Accrington look set to join them, there is still some hope that Cambridge can leapfrog one of Oxford, MK Dons or Port Vale to safety.

Saturday League One Accumulator Prediction pays 13/1

Barnsley to beat Oxford @ 8/11

Over 2.5 goals in Peterborough v Ipswich @ 19/20

Plymouth to beat Cambridge @ 4/6

Charlton to win & over 2.5 goals v Morecambe @ 13/8

All odds are correct at the time of writing

Tykes to make the most of home comforts

WhatBarnsley v Oxford
WhereOakwell, Barnsley
When15:00, Saturday 22nd April
OddsBarnsley 8/11, Draw 13/5, Oxford 4/1

Barnsley have won each of their last eight home league games and, while automatic promotion may be beyond them, Michael Duff will be wanting his team to head into the play-offs in the highest of spirits.

That home dominance has included victories over title-chasing duo Plymouth and Sheffield Wednesday, while they have also accounted for Accrington, Cambridge and Morecambe, three teams that find themselves in deep relegation trouble.

Oxford may be more desperate than Barnsley for maximum points as they find themselves only one point clear of the dropzone.

However, the U's have failed to win any of their last 16 matches and they won't be getting any sympathy from a Barnsley side that have netted at least three goals in five of their last six home wins.

Promotion-chasing pair can put on a show

WhatPeterborough v Ipswich
WhereLondon Road, Peterborough
When15:00, Saturday 22nd April
OddsPeterborough 3/1, Draw 13/5, Ipswich 10/11

Ipswich top the form table after winning five and drawing one of their last six League One outings - a sequence of results that has put them in with a real shot of title glory.

The Tractor Boys trail Plymouth by a point, but they look to be finishing the season the stronger, while they are also a point ahead of third-placed Wednesday who have played one game more.

However, Kieran McKenna's men should not be expecting an easy ride at Peterborough, who are also in fine form in their hunt for a play-off place.

Posh have lost only one of their last eight and are up to fifth, although they are only a point ahead of seventh-placed Derby County, which means their position is a precarious one.

This is an important match for both of this promotion-chasing pair and that could lead to an entertaining affair.

There have been over 2.5 goals in seven of Peterborough's last 10 league assignments, while Ipswich boast the division's most prolific forward line with 87 goals scored across their 42 outings.

Pilgrims can stay in pole position

WhatPlymouth v Cambridge
WhereHome Park, Plymouth
When15:00, Saturday 22nd April
OddsPlymouth 4/6, Draw 14/5, Cambridge 17/4

Plymouth remain in pole position for the League One title, but any slip-up at this part of the season could be fatal with Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday breathing down their necks.

So far so good for the Pilgrims, who have a point lead at the top and have responded well to their 2-0 defeat to Lincoln earlier this month.

Plymouth have built on that disappointment with away wins at Exeter and Shrewsbury and, even though Cambridge are also in desperate need of victory in their survival bid, quality ought to tell at Home Park.

This ground has been a fortress for Steven Schumacher's side as they have been successful in 17 of their 20 home league games so far this season.

Fourth-bottom Cambridge have stuttered on their travels, collecting just 12 points from 20 away games - scoring only 14 goals.

Mark Bonner's men have won only one of their nine away league games in 2023, netting just four times in that spell, and that lack of firepower is unlikely to cut it against the league leaders.

Addicks can heap the misery on Morecambe

WhatCharlton v Morecambe
WhereThe Valley, South East London
When15:00, Saturday 22nd April
OddsCharlton 7/10, Draw 14/5, Morecambe 15/4

Morecambe are almost down and out in their pursuit of League One survival as they find themselves three points adrift of survival with only three games to go.

That doesn't sound insurmountable, but they have played one match more than most of their relegation rivals and two of their final three outings are on the road.

That is a real problem as the Shrimps are the division's worst travellers with only nine points to show from their 21 away league games.

In fact, Morecambe have lost 10 of their last 12 on their travels and they have suffered some heavy beatings along the way, losing 5-0 at Derby and Barnsley and 4-0 at Ipswich.

And another high-scoring defeat could be on the cards at Charlton, who have been performing with real credit recently with five victories from their last eight fixtures.

The Addicks have won their last two home games 6-0 against Shrewsbury and 3-2 against Burton and at 13/8 are worth backing to prevail in a game featuring at least three goals.
