Notts County have managed to find the net just once in their last seven matches while scoring for Oldham is proving even more difficult, the Latics having drawn a blank in a remarkable ten out of eleven. It doesn’t take a mathematician then to work out that goals could be at a premium as the pair face-off at Meadow Lane.
Totesport’s 9/1 chalked against a 0-0 stalemate could understandably lure some brave punters and a home win combined with a total of fewer than 2.5 goals also possesses appeal at 7/5 with Partybets. However, the best option seems to be Sportingbet’s 21/10 for the contest to produce less than two goals, as a bore draw as well as a 1-0 victory either way are all covered.
League One leaders Brighton are getting closer to landing the title having won eight matches on the spin but this weekend they visit another side in excellent form in the shape of Rochdale. It could be a tough afternoon then for the Seagulls, who aren’t in the habit of issuing hammerings given that seven of their eight consecutive victories have been by a solitary goal and as ‘Dale have registered four triumphs ‘to nil’ in a row, they could get something from the Spotland showdown.
Keith Hill’s side have extra incentive, knowing that they could still mount a late play-off charge and although Brighton are too good to directly oppose by backing a home win at 9/4 (Skybet), the hosts are worth considering ‘Draw No Bet’ at 6/5 with .
Finally, Yeovil’s trio of successes has put them within touching distance of survival and with confidence restored at Huish Park they can follow up the midweek triumph against Carlisle by getting the better of struggling Bristol Rovers.
The Pirates look League Two-bound despite taking seven points from their last available dozen and while they have improved a touch of late, the buoyant Glovers, at evens (888Sport) should have the edge.
