Burton Albion may not have a stunning away record but can collect three points away at haphazard Stockport at 6/4 with Ladbrokes.
It’s looking increasingly bleak for Stockport at the bottom of League Two and the desperate Hatters have this week turned to Ray Mathias in one last desperate bid to avoid relegation. Four points adrift of safety having played six games more than Burton and continuing to concede goals left, right and centre, County are beginning to get cut adrift and the Brewers can ensure their task becomes doubly difficult by collecting all three points as the pair lock horns at Edgeley Park.
Admittedly, Burton’s away record is nothing to write home about but they boosted confidence with a 3-1 home win against Lincoln in midweek and picked up a maximum haul at Northampton less than a fortnight ago so they look to heading in the right direction.
The Hatters meanwhile, have lost four out of five and we think Mathias will see first hand what he is up against as Albion emerge triumphant, a result Ladbrokes offer at 6/4.
A haul of seven points from a possible nine suggests that Port Vale are getting their promotion bid back on track and they look well placed to pick up another win as they entertain Oxford. The U’s play-off bid has been hit by three straight defeats and at 11/10 (Coral), they look likely to drift further off the top seven pace by going down again at Vale Park.
Ashley Grimes has been a key figure in Lincoln’s rise up the table this season. The Imps were struggling towards the foot of League Two for a long time but Grimes, on-loan from Millwall, has banged in 14 goals this term to haul City away from danger and he can make an impact as Lincoln welcome Southend to Sincil Bank.
The Imps’ top scorer by some distance, Grimes has struck six times in his last eight and he’s 8/5 courtesy of Paddy Power to notch again in this one.
Finally, at the top, Chesterfield are available with Coral at a tempting 8/5 to pick up a fourth straight win as they head to stuttering Crewe, who have lost six of their last eight.
