Bury have won four in a row to move closer to automatic promotion in League Two and they’re heavy favourites at 1/2 with Totesport to tighten their grip on a top three berth by sending Lincoln home from Gigg Lane empty-handed.
The Imps are in something of a rut at the moment, their draw with Crewe last week ending a sequence of five straight defeats and against a team playing as well as the Shakers, it’s hard to envisage them avoiding defeat.
Furthermore, Steve Tilson’s side have only managed two goals in five matches while the hosts have kept four clean sheets in five and so punters can boost their potential return in the event of a home success by backing Bury at 6/4 (888Sport) to prevail ‘to nil’.
Staying at the top of the table, Torquay and Wycombe lock horns at Plainmoor in a clash crucial to the promotion race and it’s hard to split the two, who have gone eight and six matches unbeaten respectively.
For the Chairboys, the last three of those matches have ended in stalemate and with little between the teams ahead of this one, there’s a strong chance that this contest could follow suit, an outcome Betfred offer at 12/5.
