Football accumulator tips: Terriers and Gills in 28/1 five-fold

The games continue to come thick and fast in the Football League and there is a full programme of matches on Saturday which are the focus for our football accumulator tips.

We had three winners out of five on both Tuesday and Wednesday night which meant making a profit if backing our accumulator football bets to level stakes.

Hopefully we can now end the week with a clean sweep on our UK footy acca which pays more than 28/1 in a five-fold.

Football accumulator tips: February 29

Huddersfield vs Charlton

Huddersfield must still be wondering how they only put two goals past Bristol City on Tuesday but they should be full of confidence heading into an important game at the foot of the Championship.

January loan signings Emile Smith-Rowe and Chris Willock both played pivotal roles in the 2-1 win, which was far more dominant than the scoreline suggested.

"We had much more conviction about our play and went two ahead," said boss Danny Cowley. "We should have got a third and fourth but we ended up having to see the game out.

"Slowly but surely we're seeing our identity come to the fore. We've seen what the players are capable of, and that's what I expect of them now."

Charlton have had 24 hours less to prepare for this fixture as they look to avoid back-to-back defeats in Yorkshire following Wednesday night's 1-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday. They were undone by a Steven Fletcher header in injury time but the Owls were good value for their win.

It was a 10th away defeat of the season for Charlton, while two of their three wins on their travels came back in August, so we're happy to oppose them in our football acca tips.

Gillingham vs AFC Wimbledon

Gillingham are one of only four teams in the top four tiers of English football to remain unbeaten in 2020 and they have gone 15 matches without a defeat.

Their last loss in League One was at Wimbledon in November so they will be keen to get revenge this weekend as they aim to cut the five-point gap to the play-off places.

Too many draws have prevented them being in the thick of the promotion race but four wins in their last six games have seen them edge up the table.

Wimbledon, on the other hand, have gone seven matches without a win and have failed to score in three of their last four so this looks a home banker for our UK acca tips.

This weekend's best bets

If you're interested in football betting, check out our latest previews:

Tranmere vs Fleetwood

Fleetwood's five-match winning run was ended at Sunderland in midweek but it took a last-gasp equaliser to deny them at the Stadium of Light and it was still a decent point for Joey Barton's men.

The former Newcastle midfielder received plenty of abuse from the home fans and mocked them in his post-match interview for celebrating "like it was a World Cup final victory".

The result left Fleetwood outside the play-off places on goal difference but they have a game in hand on most of the teams above them and are heading in the right direction.

Struggling Tranmere stopped the rot on Tuesday as a late goal secured a 3-2 win at Shrewsbury and ended a run of 11 league games without a win.

They have gone 415 minutes without a goal at Prenton Park though and Fleetwood are fancied to hammer another nail in their coffin.

Cambridge vs Carlisle

Mark Bonner could not have done much more to prove he should be named Cambridge manager on a permanent basis.

The interim boss won his first four matches in charge which was followed by a goalless draw at high-flying Plymouth last weekend.

Only two goals have been conceded during that run, which is a marked improvement following two successive 4-0 home defeats in January which resulted in the sacking of Colin Calderwood.

Harry Darling has formed a solid partnership with Greg Taylor at centre-back and the Us suddenly look hard to break down.

Carlisle have gone five matches without a win and although four of those have been draws, we expect Cambridge to extend their fine form as one of our football accumulator tips for today.

Stevenage vs Walsall

It is proving to be a campaign to forget for Stevenage, who are on their fourth manager of the season and looking destined to drop out of the Football League.

Alex Revell took charge for the first time last weekend following Graham Westley's latest departure from the club but he was unable to prevent a seventh straight defeat as they lost 2-0 at Crawley.

Boro are now eight points adrift at the foot of the table and have managed just three wins and 23 goals all season.

Walsall have performed better on their travels than at home and backing them for an eighth away win at 33/20 is one of our best football tips for the weekend.

They have taken eight points from their last four games, three of which were against teams in the top half of the table.
