The Brewers are winless on the road and it’s hard to see them remedying that against the Spireites but the odds don’t exactly set the heart racing and it could be worth considering a modest punt on the unstoppable Craig Davies – coincidentally born in Burton – to add to his eleven league goals at some stage, especially as Coral offer odds of 6/5. Alternatively, Partybets offer 8/5 for the Spireites to triumph in a game that produces three or more goals.
Hereford are still without a league win at Edgar Street this season but they got amongst the goals at home last week and recorded a comfortable triumph, albeit against Hythe Town in the FA Cup, and it’s about time they picked up a three-point haul on their own patch.
The much-improved Bulls therefore look a cracking bet at 11/8 with Totesport to see off Cheltenham this weekend. Admittedly the Robins boosted a pretty paltry points tally on their travels with a victory at Accrington in their last away match in the league but Stanley are in a dreadful at present, conceding goals left, right and centre and it would be unwise to view that as an indicator that Town have cured their travelling ills.
Sticking with Stanley, their poor run has seen them take just one point from five league matches and although they edged out Oldham in the FA Cup last Saturday, they’re set to emerge empty-handed at Southend, a result rated by Betdaq at 21/20.
Furthermore, Accrington have conceded 20 goals in their last six in League Two so a tally of more than 2.5 goals at 10/11 (William Hill), looks likely. Combining that with a Shrimpers win is a tasty 21/10 at bet365.
Hereford to beat Cheltenham – 11/8 (Totesport)
Craig Davies to score for Chesterfield against Burton– 6/5 (Coral)
Southend to beat Accrington and over 2.5 goals in the match – 21/10 (bet365)
