Mark Langdon's Saturday football tips and weekend accumulators

Best bets in the EFL and beyond

Oldham manager Paul Scholes
1 of 1

3pm Saturday

Bury v Oldham 

Paul Scholes gets his first taste of a derby as a manager when Oldham make the short trip to Gigg Lane but the Manchester United legend may be in for an unhappy time at Bury.

Scholes started with a win against Yeovil but has since seen the Latics draw with Crewe and suffer defeat to Morecambe. He is fully aware of the tough test awaiting his side and said: "Bury are probably one of the best in the league."

No doubt Scholes is correct regarding second-placed Bury, who are unbeaten in nine Sky Bet League Two matches with six wins in eight.

The Shakers have beaten MK Dons and Forest Green in this excellent spell and possess real quality in the final third through creative spark Danny Mayor as well as hitman Nicky Maynard.

Ryan Lowe's side may be slightly distracted by Tuesday's EFL Trophy semi-final with Portsmouth as there is a place at Wembley up for grabs, although the main focus of their campaign is to gain promotion.

Bury have scored in 16 of their last 17 league games and Scholes could well need more time to work with his players before Oldham are playing how their new manager wants. 

Sky Bet League Two standings

Recommendation
Bury
1pt 10-11 general

Colchester v Carlisle 

Sixth hosts seventh in League Two and Colchester can take a step towards the playoffs while denting Carlisle's promotion hopes.

Carlisle have picked up only one point from their last three matches and their performance last time out in a 3-2 loss to MK Dons must have been a worry for Steven Pressley as the Cumbrians forced just two shots on target. 

They lost some key loanees at the end of January and Pressley may be forced into throwing Tom Parkes and Danny Grainger back into action following spells on the sidelines.

Colchester have had a fab February, beating Northampton 4-0 and Cheltenham 3-0, before a 1-1 draw at Macclesfield which could turn out to be a decent point seeing as Sol Campbell has made a significant difference to the lowly Moss Rose outfit. 

United have a few injury problems in central midfield, which dents confidence slightly, but in Courtney Senior and Sammie Szmodics they possess two of the brightest talents in League Two.  

Recommendation
Colchester
1pt 23-20 Betway

Tranmere v Notts County 

Neal Ardley has said his Notts County side will "go to war at Tranmere" as they look to bounce back from a disappointing 4-1 defeat at Newport and the Magpies could rise to the challenge.

Notts had looked a different side since their wholesale changes in January, drawing 1-1 at leaders Lincoln before a 2-1 victory at Forest Green and a 1-0 success over fellow highflyers Mansfield.

It's possible the Newport game was a blip. Notts had more shots (17-10) and the shots-on-target contest (5-6) was close enough to suggest County are far from done in their relegation battle. 

James Norwood scored twice with Tranmere's only shots on target in their 2-1 triumph at Port Vale on Tuesday but Rovers have lost three of their last six matches and look a little vulnerable at the prices.

Recommendation
Notts County draw no bet
1pt 6-4 general

Football accumulator bets

Banker
Bury 10-11
The Shakers are the highest-scoring side in League Two with 63 goals and a derby game with Oldham should ensure Bury are not distracted by their midweek EFL Trophy semi-final.

Blowout
Crawley 13-10
Backing bad teams at short odds is a recipe for disaster and three wins in 14 for Crawley highlights their limitations. Sol Campbell's Macclesfield are improving and look value for at least a point.

Accumulator
Bury 7-8, MK Dons 14-19, Roma 18-35, Real Madrid 7-12, 188Bet

Both teams to score
Games at Leicester 10-11, Brentford 4-6, Norwich 8-11, bet365

Thought for the week

Chelsea may well not stick with Maurizio Sarri for much longer and if the Italian gets the boot he will go down playing the football he wants, which means Jorginho as the deep-sitting midfield playmaker rather than defensive anchor N'Golo Kante.

According to many it is sporting suicide to remove Kante from his best position, but if it's such a terrible idea how did Chelsea get on last season with the Frenchman in his normal role?

Chelsea finished fifth in the Premier League with 70 points at an average of 1.84 per game. If the Blues carry on at their current rate of 1.92 per game they will finish the season with 73 points.

There are problems at Chelsea, clearly, and Sarri is not helping himself with some of his comments and rigidness when it comes to substitutions. He could also do with bringing in a few of the younger players who are desperate for a chance to impress at Stamford Bridge.

However, when it comes to the Kante-Jorginho debate, Sarri is nowhere near as wrong as many are suggesting.
