FA Cup acca: 5 football tips from Saturday's first-round matches
Will Rook is backing this 13/1 accumulator featuring football tips from the opening round of football's oldest cup competition.
Accrington to beat Colchester
Accrington are still unbeaten after nine home games in all competitions this season.
John Coleman’s side have won five of their last six matches at the Wham Stadium, only failing to beat League One leaders Portsmouth.
They are a healthy price to notch another win against League Two Colchester, whose only two away victories this season came against 20th-placed Morecambe and 23rd-placed Cheltenham.
Billericay to win or draw v Chesterfield
Chesterfield find themselves sixth-bottom of the National League after 19 games, having failed to win any of their last 16 league games.
The Spireites have lost four and drawn three of their last seven at home and should be worried by the visit of high-flying Billericay.
Glenn Tamplin’s side are on a 12-match unbeaten run and are three points clear at the top of the National League South.
MK Dons to beat Grimsby
Grimsby were beaten 2-1 at Mansfield in midweek, leaving them fourth-bottom of League Two after three straight losses.
It is difficult to see the Mariners – who have managed just 11 league goals this season – outscoring any team, let alone second-placed MK Dons.
Paul Tisdale’s side hammered Crawley 4-0 in the EFL Trophy in midweek and have won six of their last eight matches in all competitions, only losing to league leaders Lincoln in that sequence.
Newport to beat Met Police
Met Police have equalled their best-ever showing in the FA Cup simply by qualifying for the first round.
The seventh-tier side lost to then-League One Crawley in 2012 in their only other first-round match since 1993/94 and come into this match with just one victory in three.
Newport have won three of their four FA Cup ties against non-league opposition since they were promoted to the EFL in 2013 and should be backed this weekend, despite their short price.
Forest Green to win or draw v Oxford
Forest Green lost to League Two leaders Lincoln at the weekend, but that was only their second defeat in 12 league games.
The Green Devils earned a draw away to League One Coventry in the EFL Trophy last month and should at least force a replay this weekend.
Relegation-threatened Oxford surrendered a three-goal lead in six second-half minutes against fellow strugglers Scunthorpe last Saturday and have won just three of their last 14 matches in all competitions.
