League Two leaders Port Vale are a very tempting 13/10 () to end a run of draws away at Morecambe.
It’s fair to say Morecambe haven’t taken to the new Globe Arena quite yet and are 9/4 (Betfred) to add a 3rd league win there this season. Beating Stockport 5-0 recently can almost be ignored and a home defeat to Lincoln must have been hard for the fans while the away side, on a run of draws, got back to winning ways also at Stockport (also 5-0). The away draws are a worry for Port Vale, a 6th in 7 games here is 12/5 (Betdaq), so backing Port Vale on the draw no bet market is a safe 4/6 at Stan James but with a return to winning at home, Port Vale should take this contest.
After a strong start to their home-based campaign, Rotherham have struggled a bit to get it together at the Don Valley and bet365′s quote of evens about them to beat Aldershot is a tricky call.
First glance reveals a decent away win for their opponenets, Aldershot, at Burton but losing to nil against Macclesfield and non-league Dover (in the Cup) is a bad sign for the visitors, who are 3/1 at Coral. Rotherham should be backed at double you money evens here, with another win to nil inflicted on Aldershot a 5/2 chance at Paddy Power.
Northampton’s away day joy lasted for only 1 game in League 2 as they beat lowly Lincoln but a solid defeat at Barnet is something to be worried by and they are 10/3 (bet365) to win at Stevenage, the hosts a 10/11 chance at Coral.
Stevenage should be proud of holding Shrewsbury and Chesterfield (and League One’s MK Dons) to draws, another of which is 5/2 here at Ladbrokes, but they can go one better and secure all 3 points, just like they did at Conference title-chasing Wimbledon. They could still be in the defensive mindset, going in a half time level and going on to win at full time, a 7/2 chance with William Hill. 2 goals to 1 for the home side is 15/2 at Sportingbet.
