Football accumulator tips: September 21

Brentford vs Stoke

Nothing is going right for Nathan Jones and the Stoke manager is surely running out of time to stop the rot.

The early dismissal of Joe Allen contributed to last week's 2-1 defeat at home to Bristol City but that is now six losses from seven games for the Potters, who have conceded 17 goals already.

Their defensive problems could again be highlighted when they go to Griffin Park, with only one team in the Championship averaging more shots per home match than Brentford.

The Bees have struggled on the road but are a different team at home, where they crushed Derby 3-0 last time out, and a home win here is added to our footy acca for Saturday.

Nottingham Forest vs Barnsley

Nottingham Forest went to Swansea as underdogs last week but produced arguably the result of the day with a 1-0 win to end the Welsh side's unbeaten start.

Forest are now unbeaten in eight matches in all competitions and the challenge now is to produce back-to-back victories, something they have so far failed to do.

Speaking after the Swansea game, Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi said: "We deserved to score maybe in the first half - one or two goals - and our goalkeeper didn't have a lot to do.

"We must think about the Barnsley game now because we never win two games in a row. I have a nice group, they trust me and for the moment they are doing a good job."

Forest have had a tricky start to the season, having also visited Leeds, Charlton and Fulham, but now look to have a favourable run of fixtures and are clearly focused on putting together a winning streak.

Barnsley are without a win since their opening-day victory over Fulham and have only managed one goal in their last four league games so are easy to oppose as the second of our football tips for the weekend.

Rotherham vs Shrewsbury

Rotherham are one point and one place below their visitors this weekend but we're confident the Millers are more likely to be pushing for promotion at the business end of the season.

Paul Warne's men have not always had the results they have deserved at the New York Stadium this season, having dominated a 2-0 defeat at home to Lincoln and conceding a last-gasp equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Tranmere.

This weekend's best bets

They should be full of confidence, though, after smashing six goals past Bolton last weekend and following that with a deserved draw at Sunderland in midweek.

Shrewsbury edged a seven-goal thriller with struggling Southend on Tuesday but we're happy to oppose them in our football accumulator tips for today, especially having lost 4-0 at home to Rotherham in the Carabao Cup last month.

Colchester vs Leyton Orient

Colchester produced the result of the night on Tuesday with an impressive 3-0 win at high-flying Swindon to continue their improvement.

The Us failed to win any of their first four league games but have taken 10 points from their next five after recent signing Theo Robinson bagged a brace at the County Ground in his first league start.

Manager John McGreal was thrilled with Tuesday's result, saying: "We haven't scored as many goals as we would have liked. We made five changes to Saturday's team and the boys that've come in have been champing at the bit. It was a great performance."

Leyton Orient have only managed two points from their last five games following Tuesday's 2-1 defeat at home to Crewe and only Scunthorpe have conceded more goals in League Two so a Colchester win is one of our best football tips for Saturday.

Forest Green vs Stevenage

Neither of these teams have been prolific this season but Forest Green have at least looked solid at the back and they should have the quality to edge what could be a low-scoring game.

Their nine matches so far have produced just 12 goals and all five of their victories have been 1-0 so we don't expect Stevenage to be blown away, but Rovers also have the joint-best defence in League Two with just five goals conceded.

Stevenage are the only team in the division still without a win and have failed to find the net in six of their nine matches, including Tuesday's 1-0 loss at home to 10-man Northampton.

Their poor start resulted in the sacking of Dino Maamria, with Mark Sampson placed in temporary charge but the former England Women's boss has made little impact so far and Forest Green complete out football accumulator tips for Saturday.
