League Two Tuesday Accumulator: Stevenage's promotion hopes could be dented

There are four crucial matches taking place in League Two on Tuesday, including at the County Ground where visitors Stevenage can take a giant step towards automatic promotion.

The pressure is on Steve Evans' side following their weekend defeat at Mansfield Town and they will be facing a Swindon Town team who have been hitting form of late despite having very little to play for.

Mansfield's win over Stevenage last time out means they can still secure automatic promotion themselves, but they head into Tuesday's home clash with champions Leyton Orient sitting outside the play-off positions.

Elsewhere, a point would be enough for Harrogate Town to secure their EFL status for another season when they visit Newport County, while Grimsby Town can move into the top half of the standings with victory on home turf against Crewe Alexandra.

All four of these games feature on our four-fold accumulator which comes in at odds of 105/1.

Tuesday four-fold acca

Swindon to beat Stevenage @ 13/5
Mansfield to beat Leyton Orient @ 5/6
Newport to beat Harrogate and both teams to score @ 3/1
Grimsby to beat Crewe and under 2.5 goals in the match @ 3/1

Four-fold pays out at 105/1

Odds correct at time of writing and are subject to fluctuation.

Nerves begin to jangle for Stevenage

WhatSwindon Town v Stevenage
WhereCounty Ground, Swindon
When19:45, Tuesday 25th April
OddsSwindon 13/5, Draw 12/5, Stevenage 11/10

Stevenage know if they win their final three matches of the regular season then they will be promoted to League One, but they have registered just two victories in eight and appear to be hitting the buffers at exactly the wrong time.

The Boro's away form has been particularly concerning - they have remarkably won just once on the road in the league since October - making their one-point cushion in the automatic promotion positions seem all the more precarious.

Swindon have very little to play for in mid-table, but they are chasing a third successive win after following up a 1-0 home success over Bradford City with a 5-1 triumph on their travels at AFC Wimbledon.

The building blocks are already being put in place by head coach Jody Morris for next season and Swindon provide good value at 13/5 in the Full Time Result market to claim a victory that would further dent Stevenage's promotion push.

Stags to capitalise on celebrating Orient

WhereOne Call Stadium, Mansfield
When19:45, Tuesday 25th April
OddsMansfield 5/6, Draw 5/2, Leyton Orient 7/2

Such is the tight nature of the promotion race in League Two, Mansfield head into their clash with Orient sitting outside the play-off places, but they could end the night just one point off the automatic promotion positions if results go their way.

Nigel Clough's side are certainly in form, as they are unbeaten in nine and will be chasing a third-straight win when Orient come to town.

Orient's promotion has long been assured and they wrapped up the title with victory against Crewe at the weekend, which could make this a good time for Mansfield to be facing the O's if they have perhaps overindulged in their championship celebrations.

If the O's do take their eye off the ball, then Mansfield have the form and quality to capitalise, with the hosts seeming good value at 5/6 in the Full Time Result market.

Harrogate may have to wait for survival

WhatNewport County v Harrogate Town
WhereRodney Parade, Newport
When19:45, Tuesday 25th April
OddsNewport County 10/11, Draw 12/5, Harrogate Town 16/5

Harrogate look all but assured of playing League Two football again next season, as a point from their final three matches will be enough to guarantee survival.

However, the Sulphurites may have to wait before they can celebrate retaining their EFL status, as they face a tough trip to Rodney Parade to take on Newport this midweek.

Newport have lost just two of their last 10 home matches, while they have won both previous league meetings with Harrogate on their own patch.

Another home win is expected on Tuesday, but Harrogate will fancy their chances of getting on the scoresheet, as no bottom-half team has netted more goals in League Two this season than Simon Weaver's side.

The Newport win and both teams to score therefore appeals at 3/1 in the Result/Both Teams to Score market.

Mariners to grind out victory

WhatGrimsby Town v Crewe Alexandra
WhereBlundell Park, Cleethorpes 
When19:45, Tuesday 25th April
OddsGrimsby 10/11, Draw 5/2, Crewe 16/5

There is not much riding on Grimsby's home clash with Crewe, but the hosts will be keen to make it back-to-back victories at Blundell Park, while a win would also move them into the top half of the standings.

All three of Grimsby's home wins in the league this calendar year have been by a 1-0 scoreline and it could be another low-scoring affair on Tuesday given visitors Crewe have failed to net in four of their last six on the road.

The Railwaymen are also the joint-second lowest scorers in League Two this season - averaging less than a goal a game - while they have also failed to score in their last two meetings with Grimsby.

All of this suggests a low-scoring victory is on the cards for the Mariners, who are 3/1 to win, with under 2.5 goals being scored in the match, in the Result/Total Goals market.
