A draw at Swindon followed up by a much-needed home win against Bradford suggest that Hereford might be turning the corner and the Bulls look a little overpriced at 6/4 with bet365 as they tackle travel sick Barnet in a League Two basement battle at Edgar Street.
The Bees have lost four out of six on the road and their poor defensive record away from home is good news for Tom Barkhuizen. The on-loan striker has notched in his last two Hereford appearances and can be backed at a whopping 7/1 (Coral) to open the scoring in this one.
High flyers Southend have won five of their last six, drawing the other at home to Morecambe last weekend and the Shrimpers are a stand out 20/23 via Stan James to collect another maximum haul as they host a Torquay side without a win in seven.
The Gulls’ form has dipped badly in recent weeks, culminating in last week’s heavy 5-2 home defeat to Gillingham and as they haven’t managed an away goal in three attempts, it’s difficult to see them turning the corner at Roots Hall, where Paddy Power price the home side at 23/10 to prevail ‘to nil’.
Finally, Plymouth’s recent improvement hasn’t been enough to lift them off the bottom of the table but the Pilgrims are nevertheless slightly high at 7/2 () ahead of their home clash with a Swindon team whose form over the last five matches has been somewhat unconvincing.
