Table-topping Chesterfield are 3/4 with to register a third straight win as they face Northampton in League Two.
League Two leaders Chesterfield are looking more and more like champions as the campaign enters the last couple of months. The Spireites hammered promotion-hopefuls Wycombe a week ago and followed that result up with a 3-0 away success at Cheltenham and it’s hard to see John Sheridan’s men failing to collect a maximum haul as they entertain managerless Northampton.
The Cobblers parted company with boss Ian Sampson after they were beaten by struggling Burton, on the back of six consecutive draws but an immediate improvement didn’t materialise as they went down 3-2 at home to Shrewsbury at the weekend. They’ve also managed just two away wins all season and so there seems no reason, even though it’s odds-on, to swerve a Chesterfield triumph at 3/4 with .
Burton have shipped 14 goals in their last four games and scored seven of their own in that time while Lincoln’s last six games leading up to their 0-0 draw with Accrington at the weekend, produce a total of 24 goals. As they go head-to-head at the Pirelli Stadium then, punters can expect a high-scoring affair and bet365 post even money against the two sides sharing at least three goals.
However, it’s a clash that could reward the bold and Sportingbet offer a mouth watering 5/2 for the two leaky defences to ensure the scorers are troubled on more than 3.5 occasions.
