League Two Tuesday Accumulator: Promotion chasers feature on 18/1 acca

There are five matches taking place in League Two on Tuesday and our three-fold acca includes contests involving promotion-chasing Stevenage, Northampton and Bradford.

Stevenage will make the relatively short trip south to London for their clash with AFC Wimbledon hoping to get their top-three push back on track following an untimely dip in form. 

The recent struggles of Steve Evans' side has opened the door for the chasing pack in the automatic promotion race, which is currently being led by fourth-placed Northampton, who will be visiting Harrogate this midweek. 

Another promotion contender that will be on the road on Tuesday is Bradford, who will head into their clash at Gillingham sitting a point and place outside the playoff positions, but with at least one game in hand on the majority of the sides above them. 

Elsewhere, Barrow will host sixth-placed Salford and Tranmere will welcome struggling Crawley to Prenton Park, but our three-fold will focus on the games at the Cherry Red Records Stadium, the EnviroVent Stadium and the Priestfield, with our accumulator producing odds of almost 18/1.

Stumbling Stevenage set for draw

OddsAFC Wimbledon 3/1, Draw 21/10, Stevenage 11/10

Everything was looking rosy for Stevenage a month ago, as off the back of knocking Premier League side Aston Villa out of the FA Cup, they comprehensively beat League Two leaders Leyton Orient 3-0 and appeared well placed to not only secure promotion from the fourth tier but to go up as champions. 

However, since that victory over the O's, Stevenage have failed to win any of their last six games across all competitions, losing each of the last two without scoring in the league against Stockport and Tranmere. 

That run has seen Boro slip to third in the standings and they could fall out of the automatic promotion positions if results go against them on Tuesday. 

Experienced campaigner Evans will be determined to see his side get back on track when they visit a Wimbledon team also struggling for victories - the Dons have won just once in nine matches since the turn of the year. 

Converting draws into wins has been a real problem for Johnnie Jackson's mid-table side, as only Walsall (13) have shared the spoils in more matches than Wimbledon (12) in League Two this season, with three of the Dons' last four games ending all-square. 

With Stevenage having also been involved in stalemates in two of their last three on the road, the draw, which is available at 21/10 in the Full Time Result market, could be the way to go.

If Stevenage do drop points in the capital, then that could open the door for fourth-placed Northampton to move back into the automatic promotion positions, provided the Cobblers win on the road at Harrogate. 

The omens are certainly good for Jon Brady's side, as no team has taken more away points in the fourth tier this season than Northampton, who claimed their eighth win on the road with victory at Colchester last time out. 

Meanwhile, struggling Harrogate will head into the game sitting just two places and four points above the relegation zone and having won only four of their 16 matches at the EnviroVent Stadium this season. 

Simon Weaver's side have triumphed just once in 11 matches all told and that solitary win was on their travels, with their last success on home soil coming against Grimsby on Boxing Day. 

League positions, form and quality all seem to point towards an away win in this one, with Northampton 23/20 in the Full Time Result market to secure all three points. 

Bradford to end night in the playoffs

OddsGillingham 17/10, Draw 2/1, Bradford 9/5

Bradford may currently sit eighth in the standings, but had their home form matched their endeavours on the road then they would be much higher in the table, as the Bantams have won eight times on their travels this season compared to their six successes at the University of Bradford Stadium. 

That impressive away form includes back-to-back victories at Stevenage and Doncaster and manager Mark Hughes will be eyeing a third-successive road win when Bradford head to a much-improved Gillingham this midweek. 

The Gills have pulled clear of the relegation zone following a run of six wins in eight, but all of those victories have come against sides that sit 15th in the standings or lower - with their recent 2-0 defeat at playoff-chasing Mansfield perhaps providing a fairer reflection of where Neil Harris' side are at. 

This will certainly be a tough test of Bradford's away credentials, but the Bantams, who are 18 points better off than their hosts, look good value at 9/5 in the Full Time result market.
