League One Tuesday Accumulator: High-flyers and strugglers in action in 53/1 four-fold

The end of term is drawing ever nearer and League One teams will be well aware that the month of March is crucial to deciding their end-of-season fate.

A host of teams are in catch-up action on Tuesday night, with a seven-game offering on the cards to tide fans over until the weekend programme.

Our four-fold accumulator, which pays out at 53/1, involves title-chasing Plymouth’s hosting of promotion rivals Derby County at 20:00, while the other three games - all billed for 19:45 starts - take in in-form Lincoln’s visit to Cheltenham and Portsmouth’s bid to hold onto their slim chances of a top-six finish away at Barnsley.

There’s also a gripping contest down at the bottom, as two teams inside the bottom four do battle at the Abbey Stadium as Cambridge take on Morecambe.

League One Tuesday four-fold acca:

Our League One four-fold selections are priced at 53/1:

Barnsley to win @ 21/20

Lincoln City to win @ 17/10

Morecambe to win @ 14/5

Plymouth to win @ 8/5

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

Imps improving week by week

OddsCheltenham 17/10, Draw 11/5, Lincoln 17/10

Lincoln are enjoying their best run of form all season. Currently unbeaten in nine games, City are climbing up the table after a sluggish start and, while a push for the play-offs looks highly unlikely given the 16-point gap with 13 games to play, they are at least building solid foundations for next season.

Facing them are a Cheltenham team that have survival on their minds, though the situation is far less critical than it was at the start of the month, owing to their 1-0 home win over Fleetwood at the weekend.

Those three points are the only points Town have picked up over their last four matches though; they lost four straight going into the clash.

Cheltenham’s home form also leaves a lot to be desired – they have won just one in five at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium and Lincoln, who have conceded just twice in their last four games on the road, could take full advantage as they look to keep their momentum going.

Another win for the Imps is priced at 17/10.

Barnsley bound for top-six finish

WhatBarnsley v Portsmouth

OddsBarnsley 21/20, Draw 12/5, Portsmouth 13/5

It all looks to be coming together for Michael Duff’s Barnsley. Their form is a sea of green: wins galore, particularly at Oakwell, where the uncharacteristic loss against fellow promotion-chasers Bolton at the start of January is their only defeat since late October.

The Reds have picked up 20 points from their last 24 and will prove formidable opponents for Portsmouth.

Pompey have put together their own solid run of late, managing five games without defeat, but their best form is saved for Fratton Park.

Away from home, they have won just once in their last four, and will likely be under the cosh against a stellar South Yorkshire side, for whom a win is priced at 21/20.

Morecambe to end sorry spell

WhatCambridge v Morecambe
WhereAbbey Stadium, Cambridge
When19:45, Tuesday 7th March
How to watchN/A
OddsCambridge 1/1, Draw 5/2, Morecambe 14/5

Morecambe’s stock is showing signs of rising after a particularly poor first half of the League One season.

Mired in a relegation battle, they have finally shown signs of life in 2023 and are preparing for a match of mammoth significance on Tuesday evening.

At the Abbey Stadium they are hosted by Cambridge, three points below the Shrimps in the table and second-bottom of the division to Morecambe’s fourth-bottom.

And Tuesday night constitutes a more-or-less ideal time to face the U’s, given they have lost three on the bounce. Morecambe, on the other hand, may have a dire away record with just one win on their travels this season, but they have picked up a four-point haul from their last three games to take them to within two points of safety.

If ever there is a time for the improving Lancashire side to break their duck and come good on the road, it’s this week against out-of-sorts opposition, who have won just once at home in five games and are priced at 14/5 to be beaten.

Derby face arduous task at Argyle

WhatPlymouth v Derby
WhereHome Park, Plymouth
When20:00, Tuesday 7th March
How to watchSky Sports Football, Sky Sports Main Event
OddsPlymouth 8/5, Draw 12/5, Derby 13/8

Our final pick sees a Plymouth side hauling themselves closer to a Championship return take on fifth-placed Derby, who will likely have to settle for the play-offs.

While not quite as invincible as earlier in the season, Steven Schumacher’s Argyle sit a comfortable five points clear of third with 12 matches left to play and are expected to effectively write off County as a top-two contender in Tuesday’s late kick-off.

Eight wins and a draw from their last nine games across all competitions shows just how much of a fortress Home Park has become, while Derby have flattered to deceive away from Pride Park, tasting back-to-back road defeats against Barnsley and Wycombe in February.

Paul Warne’s men have won just one of their last three matches and the signs all point to an 8/5 home win.
