A glance at the League Two table shows Aldershot to be struggling just above the relegation zone but their form is better than their league position suggests. Dean Holdsworth’s men have lost just twice in ten matches across all competitions and can boast impressive recent FA Cup victories against Fleetwood and Rotherham while they seem to have also worked out how to score on their own patch.
None of this bodes well for Accrington, who take a sequence of seven losses in ten to the Recreation Ground and Betfred offer a tempting even money about ‘Shots extending Stanley’s dismal run.
Despite eventually going down 5-1, Cheltenham gave a decent account of themselves in Monday’s FA Cup clash with Everton and with that match now out of the way, Mark Yates’ troops will be happy to concentrate on their main goal of promotion.
Currently lying fourth, the Robins’ strength at home has been the cornerstone of their decent league position and they can rack up another success in front of their own supporters as they welcome York to Whaddon Road. The form of the Minstermen can be best described as patchy, while their failure to find the net in their last three matches on the road strengthens the case for a flutter on the hosts, especially at an odds-against 23/20 via bet365.
Double on Aldershot and Cheltenham – 17/5 (William Hill)
