A run of five successive victories has carried Stevenage right into the promotion mix in League Two and Graham Westley’s troops can ensure they stay in the hunt by bagging a sixth consecutive maximum as they host Bradford.
Expected to challenge at the start of the campaign, the Bantams are instead languishing in 18th and although they aren’t exactly looking over their shoulder to the bottom two, Peter Jackson’s side can’t wait for this miserable season to end. There’s little reason to expect anything other than a defeat for them at in-form Borough then, especially as only rock-bottom Stockport have suffered more away defeats and the hosts are a home banker at 4/6 with Coral.
Bradford have managed just 13 goals in their 18 games on the road and as Stevenage are solid defensively on their own patch, they could well win ‘to nil’, an outcome chalked up by Skybet at 6/4.
Craig Davies has enjoyed a tremendous season for leaders Chesterfield, smashing in 21 goals in 34 matches and the Welsh striker is clearly keen to fire the Spireites into League One in the campaign’s home straight as he has struck six times in his last half-dozen appearances.
The champions-elect tackle Port Vale at the b2net Stadium this weekend and there seems little reason why Davies can’t help himself to another goal at some point against the patchy play-off chasers. He’s 13/10 (Coral) to add to his tally.
Up into tenth and just three points adrift of the top seven, having played a game less than those above them, Accrington have to be considered contenders to reach the play-offs and they can help themselves in that department by bagging three points as they host struggling Northampton.
Confidence is high in the Stanley camp after a 4-0 success against Hereford in midweek took their tally to six straight home victories, most of them fairly emphatic and as the Cobblers have gone a dozen games without a victory, they’re easy to oppose so we’re siding with the hosts at 21/20 with William Hill.
