League Two Saturday Accumulator: Leaders Leyton Orient feature in 34/1 chance

There is a full programme of action in League Two this Saturday and our four-fold acca includes three of the top four as well as sides on the periphery of the playoff places.

Leaders Leyton Orient appear to have recovered from a recent wobble but will face a stern test of their credentials away to Walsall, while second-place Stevenage will be hoping to capitalise on any slip ups from the pacesetters in their home clash with Bradford.

Northampton currently sit a point and place adrift of the automatic promotion positions in fourth heading into their trip to bottom of the table Rochdale, while Swindon and Doncaster are both outside the playoff positions ahead of their meeting at the County Ground.

All four of those matches have been included in our four-fold accumulator which produces odds of almost 34/1.

Saturday four-fold acca:

Leyton Orient to win @ 2/1

Stevenage to win to nil @ 7/4

Northampton to win @ 11/10

Over 2.5 goals - Swindon v Doncaster @ 1/1

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

O's back on track

When15:00, Saturday 11th February 
OddsWalsall 31/20, Draw 2/1, Leyton Orient 2/1

It looked like the wheels were coming off Leyton Orient's push towards the League Two title just a week ago, but back-to-back wins over AFC Wimbledon and Crewe appears to have reaffirmed the O's position at the top of the standings.

Orient will head into this weekend's trip to Walsall sitting seven points clear of the chasing pack and they will be confident of at least maintaining that position with a victory at the Poundland Bescot Stadium, as they also hold the best away record in the division.

A ninth away win of the season for Richie Wellens' side can be backed at 2/1 in the Full Time Result market and this could well be a good time for Orient to be facing a Walsall team that have hit the buffers following their own resurgence, failing to win any of their last four across all competitions.

Prior to that winless run, Michael Flynn's side appeared to be propelling their way into the promotion reckoning and they cannot be underestimated, but Orient were 2-0 winners in last season's corresponding fixture and a similar outcome could be on the cards on Saturday.

Stevenage to keep up the pressure

WhatStevenage v Bradford 
WhereLamex Stadium, Stevenage
When15:00, Saturday 11th February 
OddsStevenage 4/5, Draw 13/5, Bradford 7/2

Leyton Orient may be flying high at the top of the table, but second-place Stevenage have three games in hand on the pacesetters and they would rise to the summit themselves if they were to win all of those catch-up fixtures.

Steve Evans' side have been one of the surprise packages of the season in the fourth tier and they have built much of that success on an imperious home record, as they have won 12 and lost just one of their 14 league games at the Lamex Stadium this term.

The Boro's most recent home fixture ended in a resounding 3-0 victory over Orient and they have only conceded one goal across their last six league games on their own patch - an ominous statistic for Saturday's visitors Bradford.

The Bantams have been good on the road for much of this season, picking up as many points (21) on their travels as they have at home, but they have failed to score or win in any of their last five away games across all competitions, which makes a Stevenage win to nil on Saturday at 7/4 in the Result/Both Teams to Score market all the more tempting.

OddsRochdale 13/5, Draw 12/5, Northampton 11/10

Northampton have spent much of the season inside the automatic promotion positions, but they will head into Saturday's trip to bottom of the table Rochdale sitting a point outside the top three after registering just two wins across their last seven league games.

There is good news for Jon Brady's side, as one of those victories came in their last away fixture at Barrow and they have been presented with another winnable contest at the Crown Oil Arena against struggling Rochdale.

The Dale sit rock bottom of the standings and five points adrift of safety after winning just one of their last 12 league games and losing each of their previous four - a run that leaves their 102-year stay in the Football League hanging by a thread.

Jim Bentley's side are without a home league win for over three months and all the signs are pointing towards a Northampton success this weekend, which is available in the Full Time Result market at 11/10.

Goals on the cards for inconsistent duo

WhatSwindon v Doncaster
WhereCounty Ground, Swindon
When15:00, Saturday 11th February 
OddsSwindon 1/1, Draw 5/2, Doncaster 11/4

Promotion would have been the target for both Swindon and Doncaster at the start of the season, but ahead of their meeting at the County Ground, both sides sit outside the playoff positions.

Eighth-place Swindon have been the team to watch over recent weeks, with 14 goals having been scored across their last three fixtures, a sequence that includes a 5-0 thrashing of Grimsby and a 3-3 draw with Gillingham from their two most recent home games.

Doncaster have only kept one clean-sheet across their last 11 away fixtures in the league and conceded four in their most recent road trip to Mansfield.

Over 2.5 goals during Saturday's match is priced at 1/1 in the Goals Over/Under market and this could well prove the game of the day in the fourth tier, especially when you consider there have been three goals or more scored in four of the last six meetings between the pair.
