Chairboys To Be Sitting Pretty

Gillingham didn’t manage a single away victory last season and they have picked up where they left off this term, failing to win any of their opening five matches on the road. It’s an unwanted run that looks unlikely to end this weekend as well as Andy Hessenthaler takes his side to league leaders Port Vale, who are 17/20 with to strengthen their grip on top spot by collecting a maximum haul.

Just on the coat tails of Vale, a point adrift, are Chesterfield, but their position is largely down to their form at the b2net Stadium where they have won five out of their six matches. The Spireites have only won once on the road and while they have only lost once as well, it’s their tally of away defeats that could double this weekend at Wycombe.

The Chairboys were one of the fancied teams in League Two before the campaign got under way but they made a sluggish start, drawing too many matches and winning only one of their first eight. Now however, Gary Waddock’s troops have started turning those stalemates into victories and they head into this one in confident mood on the back of three straight wins; a run that has taken them into the play-off places. Aided by home advantage then, they can nick a tight contest against Chesterfield; a result Ladbrokes offer at a tasty 5/4.

Three other potential home wins form the basis for the rest of our selections. First up, Shrewsbury’s strength at the New Meadow suggests they can arrest a mini-slump by beating Lincoln, Graham Turner’s men available at 4/5 (Coral) and at Edgeley Park, Stockport (13/10, William Hill)can heap more misery on struggling Barnet who will be at a low ebb following last week’s home defeat to Bradford.

Buoyed by that result meanwhile, the Bantams can start their ascent up the table and although opponents Cheltenham currently occupy a play-off berth, their away form isn’t the best and is even money with Partybets to get worse at Valley Parade, where new loan signing Jason Price is 5/1 (888Sport) to break the deadlock.

Recommended Bets:
Wycombe to beat Chesterfield – 5/4 (Ladbrokes)
Double on Port Vale to beat Gillingham and Shrewsbury to beat Lincoln – 11/5 ()
Double on Bradford to beat Cheltenham and Stockport to beat Barnet – 7/2 (Coral)
