This weekend;s football accumulator for Saturday afternoon is the usual 5-fold from the 3pm and 5.30pm kick-offs. The odds come from Betfred.
Two games from the Premier League and one from the Scottish Premiership feature in this Saturday Accumulator, with one game from the Championship promotion playoff and another from the Scottish League Two playoff accounting for the remaining two selections.
Although Arsenal have never won at Stoke since February 2010, they have secured four wins from their last five Premier League games as they pursue a late attempt to qualify for next season’s Champions League. Five away defeats since the beginning of February is a concern, but hosts Stoke have won just twice in eleven previous outings when beating Middlesbrough and Hull on home soil. Chelsea and Liverpool have recently won at the Bet365 Stadium, and Arsenal could claim a third victory this month by beating Stoke.
Arsenal to beat Stoke.
Relegated Sunderland featured in a surprise result by winning 2-0 at Hull last weekend, but they have won two successive Premier League matches just once this season and have failed to collect three points from any game staged at the Stadium of Light this year. Opponents Swansea beat Sunderland 3-0 at the Liberty Stadium during December and they have eased their relegation fears by earning seven points from their last three matches. The Swans ended a six-game losing sequence on away soil by claiming a draw at Manchester United at the end of last month, and they could improve upon that result by winning this contest.
Swansea to beat Sunderland.
Fulham enter this promotion playoff first leg tie unbeaten in their last six matches with five of those games ending in victory for the Cottagers. Although Fulham have registered just one clean sheet since late February, they did score nineteen goals in their final eight Championship fixtures and that attacking threat could pose a problem for visitors Reading as they have conceded three or more goals in five of their away defeats this year. The Royals can be an inconsistent team on the road and face another defeat at Craven Cottage.

After losing seven consecutive Scottish Premiership matches, Paul Hartley was dismissed as Dundee manager and replaced by Neil McCann who has subsequently guided the team to win two games on away soil, and ease their relegation fears. For his first game at Dens Park, Ross County will provide the opposition and they are unbeaten in five outings which includes a 2-2 home draw with Celtic. The Dingwall team have beaten both Inverness and Motherwell without conceding a goal in their two latest games, but with Dundee regaining some form under the guidance of McCann, a draw is the likely result.
Dundee to draw with Ross County.
Cowdenbeath lost all seven of their opening fixtures this year but a recent revival in form, including just one defeat suffered in their last six games, was unable to prevent the team from finishing bottom of Scottish League Two. A two-legged playoff with Lowland League champions East Kilbride now awaits Cowden, with the hosts for this match unbeaten this year and having won every home game during 2017. Ambitious manager Martin Lauchlan is aiming to secure promotion for Kilbride in his first season as manager at the club, and he could secure a first leg victory from this game.
