Sporting Life Accumulator: Four-fold for EFL enhanced with Sky Bet

This week's Sporting Life Accumulator involves four teams from the Sky Bet EFL, priced up at 14/1 with Sky Bet.


Head here to back Preston, Mansfield, Stevenage and Colchester all to win at 14/1 with Sky Bet

Preston (to beat Ipswich)

Preston North End manager Alex Neil

Preston's play-off hopes have been dealt a blow after four successive defeats, but three of them were against top four sides and they have a great few fixtures to bounce back and finish the season strongly.

The first is at Deepdale against already-relegated Ipswich, who have won just twice in 2019.

Alex Neil signed a new contract with North End last week after West Brom's reported interest and the hosts can celebrate the good news with a win over Paul Lambert's Tractor Boys.

Mansfield (to beat Morecambe)

Three draws in six have put Mansfield's automatic promotion hopes in the balance, with MK Dons on their coat tails.

The Stags boast a strong home record and their game against bottom-half Morecambe gives them a good chance to get back on track.

Stevenage (to beat Port Vale)

It's that time of year where you look at the table and see who still has something to fight for. Port Vale have steered away from the drop but are still prone to slip-ups, while Stevenage still have a chance of making the play-offs.

Dino Maamria's side have won back-to-back games to move within five points of the play-offs and they look generously priced at over 2/1 to get the result on Friday.

Colchester (to beat Grimsby)

Another side chasing a spot in the play-offs, Colchester need to finish the season strongly after a disappointing month or so.

They are at home to Grimsby, who are on a downward spiral after failing to win in their last nine.
