Expected to cruise to victory, Fleetwood were stunned at home by Wycombe last week but it could be wise to give the Cod Army another chance this weekend as they entertain struggling AFC Wimbledon.
Before that defeat to the Chairboys, Micky Mellon’s charges had suffered just one loss in nine in League Two and last Saturday’s surprise reverse, which was followed by a blast from their manager, could spur on the Fleetwood players.
Subsequently, Coral’s 8/13 for a home win at Highbury catches the eye and the visitors’ run of six defeats in eight only lends more value to that quote.
At the top, Gillingham are showing no signs of taking their foot off the gas, Martin Allen’s men having thumped Aldershot 4-0 last weekend and although the Gills come up against a solid Burton team at the Priestfield Stadium this weekend, they’re still worth siding with at 3/4 courtesy of BetVictor.
Finally, Southend are in buoyant mood following last weekend’s 3-0 triumph at Rotherham and the Shrimpers look too big at 13/8 via Betfred to follow that result up with another away victory, this time against a Morecambe team struggling badly on their own patch.
