Six teams still have a genuine interest in what is turning out to be an intriguing title battle in League Two and three of those sides are worth grouping together in an enticing treble this weekend.
Leaders Cheltenham lost their last home match 2-0 to Bristol Rovers but demonstrated that it was just a blip by bouncing back with a 3-1 victory at Macclesfield a week ago. At Whaddon Road again, priced by Partybets at 8/11, the Robins can build on that result by getting the better of Wimbledon, whose mini-revival unravelled last weekend as they went down to struggling Aldershot.
Second-placed Swindon have won five on the spin in the league, culminating in Tuesday’s stunning 4-1 triumph at fellow promotion-chasers Southend. Paulo Di Canio’s troops will rightly be full of confidence then ahead of the visit of Burton Albion and as the Brewers are without a victory in six, the hosts have to be fancied at 8/15 via Paddy Power.
Crawley meanwhile, have drawn their last four on the road in the league, which could discourage one or two punters as Steve Evans’ side visit Bradford, but they showed their promotion credentials in the FA Cup last weekend, beating Championship outfit Hull at the KC Stadium and Betfred make them 19/20 to end that sequence of away stalemates by picking up a maximum haul at the expense of the inconsistent Bantams.
