FA Cup accumulator: Bournemouth and Bristol City to do the business
The first weekend of January means only one thing to football fans up and down the country – FA Cup time – and we’ve got a great fourfold that could help you start 2015 with a bang.
Featuring away wins for three of the Football League’s high-flyers – Bournemouth, Bristol City and Luton – along with a home victory for a resurgent Bolton Wanderers this accumulator is available at just over 23/1 with the bookmaker.
Top of League One and on a run of six wins from their last seven, the Robins will be confident of victory at the Keepmoat having beaten Doncaster 3-0 earlier this season and with the hosts languishing in mid-table, the FA Cup will serve as an unwelcome distraction.
The surprise leaders of the Championship showed their away day credentials with a fine 2-0 win over Millwall at the New Den last weekend and will be expected to overcome a Rotherham side that has won just one of their last 12 going into this encounter.
The Trotters may have gone down 2-1 to Huddersfield last time out but prior to that had picked up wins over Millwall and Blackburn. With the likes of Eidur Gudjohnson and Emile Heskey to call on in this Lancashire derby, a Wigan side with one win under Malkay Mackay should be brushed aside.
The Hatters are rolling back to clock to the glory years of their 1988 semi-final appearance and having already beaten Cambridge on their own patch in League Two this season, they will be confident of putting them to the sword again, having done the same to Bury in the last round.
