Weekend FA Cup Accumulator – Sat 26th January

At long last, after so many near misses, many down to last minute goals or the odd game going astray due to a sending off, or a team missing gilt-edged chances, I finally landed the accumulator bet I had been waiting for on Sunday.

It wasn’t the massive odds that I’d have liked, but at over 11/1, it still ensured a very profitable weekend and gave me the New Year boost that I felt had been coming.

This week, we move on from the Premier League and games across Europe and take in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, which takes place across this coming weekend. The action begins on Friday evening with two matches (Bristol City v Bolton and Arsenal v Manchester United), before thirteen Round 4 games are played on Saturday and Sunday and the final game of the weekend on Monday night takes place at Underhill as Barnet face Brentford.

We’ve looked for a mixture of good value bets on Saturday in what is always a tricky set of games to predict, especially with many teams likely to field weaker than usual sides.

Still, I am buzzing after the win last weekend and hopeful that lightning can strike twice in quick succession with these selection of tips.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 26th January

Accrington Stanley v Derby County – Away Win

Having watched Derby perform so well against Manchester United, Chelsea and Southampton already this season, winning two of those ties on penalties, I feel like I have to back Frank Lampard’s team to get the job done against a tricky opponent in Accrington Stanley.  The Lancashire side lie in 14th place in League One and they will certainly be tricky opponents for a Derby side that have struggled for consistency at times this season. However the return to the team of Harry Wilson showed how vital he is to Derby’s plans this season and the on loan Liverpool star will I feel be the key to Derby’s success at the first attempt in this tie.

Newcastle United v Watford – Draw

This is going to be a tough one to call and while Newcastle have beaten Watford at home already this season, and earned a draw at Vicarage Road, I still feel that the fact both teams will likely rest players will make this a much more difficult game to predict. I feel the home side will be more likely to make more radical changes for this game which is why I can’t back Newcastle to back up their win over Cardiff with another here. However, by the same token, I feel that Watford have struggled against Newcastle this season and as such, I think the most likely outcome between the teams is a draw and a replay required at Vicarage Road to settle the tie.

Shrewsbury Town v Wolves – Away Win

Shrewsbury produced one of the comebacks of the last round when earning a 3-2 victory against Stoke City, coming back from 2-0 down to claim a win with a fantastic late comeback. Wolves though arguably did even better, defeating a young Liverpool side 2-1 at Molineux to earn a place in the Fourth Round. Shrewsbury may have had their day in the sun with that win over Stoke in the last round as Nuno Espirito Santo has shown that he will play strong team in the FA Cup. Wolves may have struggled more against the lesser lights in the Premier League this season but they should be strong enough to secure a decent win here and ensure they make progress into the last 16 of the competition.

AFC Wimbledon v West Ham – Away Win

These two teams met earlier this season in the Carabao Cup when West Ham were searching for their first win under Manuel Pellegrini. AFC Wimbledon took the lead in that game before they were reduced to ten men and it was only a late second half fight back that saw West Ham win the game 3-1. This time though, I feel West Ham are in much better form, while AFC Wimbledon’s season has been miserable as they sit at the foot of League One. I can see West Ham’s somewhat porous defence, especially on the road, conceding against against the Dons, but even so, the quality West Ham have in attack mean that they should earn the win here relatively comfortably.
