Wycombe To Wrap Up Promotion

In an exciting finish to League Two, Wycombe are 4/9 with Betfred to beat Southend and wrap up an automatic promotion spot.

There are still plenty of issues to be settled in League Two, both at the top and the bottom, with one automatic promotion place, two play-off berths and a relegation spot all unconfirmed ahead of the campaign’s final weekend.

Wycombe are in the driving seat in terms of going up, the Chairboys needing a win at home to Southend to confirm their place in League One next season and they’re 4/9 with Betfred to acquire the necessary three points. Shrewsbury, at 4/6 () should keep the pressure on with a victory at home to Oxford but the battle for the top seven looks a little bit more complicated.

Torquay will take some shifting and Paddy Power make them 4/11 to avoid defeat at Rotherham and jittery Gillingham are 23/20 with to lose at Chesterfield, who still haven’t clinched the League Two title. A Gills defeat would benefit Stevenage who face the other team aiming to land top spot, Bury, and Borough’s own wobbles suggest the Shakers are overpriced at 12/5 (Betfred).

Port Vale would subsequently be in with a shout of sneaking into to the play-offs as they head to Barnet, were it not for their vastly inferior goal difference and the fact that the Valiants effectively have nothing to play for means the Bees are strong favourites at Underhill, where only a maximum haul can give them any hope of staying up.

However, Mark Grew’s men, playing with freedom last week, hammered Morecambe 7-2 and with all of the pressure on the hosts, the visitors could do the business in this one.

Barnet’s solitary point from their last two knocked a survival bid that had been gathering pace and while punters should be wary given what is at stake for the Bees, it just seems like Port Vale have been overpriced by Skybet at 13/5 given that they come up against a nervous team positioned one place off the bottom of the table.

It could all be academic for Barnet anyway as Lincoln (5/6, 888Sport) should ensure they stay in League Two by beating Aldershot at Sincil Bank.

Finally, relegated Stockport tempt at 6/4 (Betfred) to get the better of a Cheltenham team whose season has petered out to say the least. The Robins have taken just four points from eight games and are clearly looking forward to their summer holidays while the Hatters will be keen to end a dismal season on a slight high.

Recommended Bets:
Port Vale to beat Barnet – 13/5 (Skybet)
Stockport to beat Cheltenham – 6/4 (Betfred)
Chesterfield to beat Gillingham – 23/20 ()
