Tips for Strips: Late Newcastle goal lands punter’s 12/1 acca


A last-gasp Andros Townsend goal for Newcastle landed one lucky punter a 12/1 accumulator in this week’s Tips for Strips.

Steve McLaren’s men were stuffed sideways at Stamford Bridge and looked to be heading back to the north east with a 5-0 defeat. But Townsend’s last-minute finish gave the Magpies a consolation goal to momentarily celebrate in what was a dismal afternoon in the capital for the barcodes.

It meant one lucky Marathonbet customer scooped a football shirt of his choice after correctly tipping all away teams in the Premier League to score on Saturday. The epic punt was tipped by 41-year-old Mark from Bucks, who chose a West Ham home shirt as his prize.

Lucky Mark said: “As it worked out all away teams scored this weekend in the Prem, surely that can’t happen too often? I often do the accumulators to make the weekends more interesting. It’s great news I’m the first Tips for Strips winner and can’t wait for my new Hammers top!”
