4 anytime goalscorer picks for Saturday's football
These picks - one from each of England's top four divisions - represent good value to find the net on Saturday. If you fancy them all, back the 32/1 acca.
Dele Alli –
Alli looks to be hitting top form again after a match-winning brace at Chelsea last week.
The 21-year-old has scored his goals in clumps this season – netting four in four in October and November, and two in two over Christmas – so is worth backing to extend this current streak at Stoke.
The Potters have lost 4-0 in each of Spurs’ last two visits, with Alli on the scoresheet in both, and have conceded 34 goals in their last nine matches against top-six opposition.
Matej Vydra –
Vydra was named in the Championship Team of the Season this week, and is an obvious bet to celebrate with a goal against Bolton.
The Czech has netted in five of his last eight home matches, with his chances of a goal boosted by a perfect record from six penalties this season – the most in the division.
Bolton have conceded 11 goals in their five previous away matches against top-six opposition, so will allow the division’s top goalscorer plenty of chances.
Adam Armstrong –
The January signing of Armstrong has enabled Blackburn to take League One by storm in 2018, and he should extend his excellent form against Southend.
The Newcastle loanee has scored nine goals in nine appearances, including braces in two of his last three, with the creativity of Bradley Dack and Danny Graham hugely beneficial.
The Shrimpers lost their last away game 4-0 at Plymouth, and Armstrong could inspire a similar rout on Saturday.
John Akinde –
Martin Allen wrote last summer that it "was quite unbelievable" that no Championship club had signed Akinde from Barnet.
The striker scored 57 goals in two seasons under Allen between 2015 and 2017, and picked up where he left off when the same manager was reappointed last month, netting a brace of penalties against Crewe in their first home game back together.
Considering Saturday’s visitors, Forest Green, have conceded three goals in each of their last three away matches, the striker has every opportunity to repeat the trick.
