Hartlepool’s unbeaten run came to an end against Sheffield Wednesday last week and Mick Wadsworth’s men look set to immediately suffer another defeat as they head to Notts County.
The Magpies went down 3-0 at MK Dons in their last league match but they were reduced to ten men after just four minutes, so that reverse is forgivable and prior to that match, Martin Allen’s men had taken 13 points from five matches. Furthermore, County have won four our of five on home soil this term so It’s fair to say they’re in decent shape and at 11/10 with Ladbrokes they’re cracking value.
Before that MK Dons loss meanwhile, Lee Hughes was in fine form, helping himself to four goals in five league outings and the prolific marksman is a tasty 5/1 via Coral to break the deadlock at Meadow Lane.
Lee Hughes to score first – 5/1 (Coral)
