Brentford are on a roll at the moment, six league wins in seven propelling them to second spot in the League One table and their outstanding home form will undoubtedly have punters flocking to back the in-form Bees at 5/6 with Betfred to get the better of Stevenage at Griffin Park.
However, the visitors are particularly strong on the road, where they have picked up an impressive seven wins from their eleven outings and with Uwe Rosler’s men coming into the clash on the back of a gruelling FA Cup replay that lasted 120 minutes, Brentford should be approached with caution.
Indeed, while they should just about edge it, we’re worried enough about the above to suggest a play in the anytime goalscorer market instead.
Bees marksman Clayton Donaldson is in a rich vein of form, with seven to his name in six appearances across all competitions so he has to be fancied at 11/10 (BetVictor) to notch in this one.
Another team that should pick up a home victory are Coventry, a 5/4 chance at Blue Square to follow the impressive 4-1 triumph at Doncaster by seeing off Preston at the Ricoh Arena. North End however, can be stubborn and are a hard team to predict, so again a shrewd move would be to go with a prolific striker.
David McGoldrick is the division’s top scorer with 15 goals in 19 matches for the Sky Blues and Boylesports rate him at 11/10 to add to his tally at some point in this one. The same firm double the Irishman up with Clayton Donaldson at 17/5.
Double on Clayton Donaldson and David McGoldrick to score at any time – 17/5 (Boylesports)
