Morecambe v Mansfield Betting Tips: Stags to do the business on their travels

Only one of these sides has any real interest in these end of season matches as visitors Mansfield Town are chasing the play-offs whilst Morecambe are in mid-table safety with no prospects of finishing in the top seven. Morecambe are having a terrible time at the moment having suffered five consecutive losses and no wins in six. Thankfully for them though, they have built up enough of a cushion above the bottom two to ensure they are not under the threat of relegation. As you would expect from a team who cannot stop losing, Jim Bentley’s side are having problems…

Accrington v Grimsby Betting Tips: Stanley to get the job done at home

An in-form Accrington play host to a stuttering Grimsby in League Two on Saturday afternoon – a fixture that provides the hosts with a good opportunity to continue their rise up the table. On their overall achievements this season, there’s little between two teams who’re separated in the table by just three points, although Accrington do have a game in hand and could leapfrog their opponents with a victory. Given just how impressive they’ve been in recent weeks, a Stanley win certainly doesn’t seem unlikely, so much so that the hosts are worth backing to come out on top. Additionally,…

Portsmouth v Newport County Betting Tips: Pompey to have too much in the locker

These two sides have different aims in League Two this season with Portsmouth chasing automatic promotion whilst visitors Newport County are fighting for their Football League future. Portsmouth’s three-match winning run, in which they scored ten and conceded zero, came to an abrupt halt last weekend with a 3-0 defeat away to Stevenage. However, they are still in the automatic promotion spots with a four-point cushion over the aforementioned Stevenage in 4th. Pompey’s strength this season has been their back-line which is the best in the division with just 34 conceded in 38 games and clean sheets in 45% of…

Morecambe v Accrington Stanley Betting Tips: Visitors to continue their good form

This is one of the more low-key Lancashire derbies that you will witness as neither team really have much to fight for at the moment as they will probably both finish around mid-table. Morecambe are having a terrible time at the moment having lost four matches on the bounce. Thankfully for them though, as mentioned above, they are pretty much safe and never had any play-off ambitions anyway. Jim Bentley’s team have not really been that impressive in either box over the course of the season with 44 scored and 56 conceded in 37 games. They have only lost by…

Newport County v Luton Town Betting Tips: Hatters to get the job done

This League Two duo are battling out at opposite ends of the League Two table with Newport County looking to simply survive whilst Luton Town are gunning for promotion. Although I said the word ‘battling’ above, that is seemingly the opposite of what Newport are doing right now and yet another defeat at the weekend to Blackpool means they are now seven points off safety. As mentioned on the weekend write-up, Newport have goal-scoring problems and, although they have found the back of the net in their last three league games, they have not scored more than twice in any…

Notts County v Barnet Betting Tips: County to get the job done at Meadow Lane

Notts County may have lost two of their last three but it is fair to say that they have been rejuvenated under new manager Kevin Nolan and they are still one of the most in form teams in the league with 14 points from their last eight, putting them eight points above the drop-zone. The Magpies have improved in both boxes during Nolan’s tenure so far with 13 scored, making them the highest scorers in the bottom four, in their last eight as well as three clean sheets since the former Leyton Orient manager’s arrival. Having said that, they still…

Luton Town v Exeter City Betting Tips: The goals can flow at Kenilworth Road

Luton are having a mixed time of late with just one win in their last five league games, however, it is also worth noting that they have only lost one of those and so they are still up in 5th place, with a four-point cushion over 8th place Blackpool. The Hatters’ back-line has been brilliant this season and they have the second-best defensive record in the league with just 33 goals conceded in 36 games and a 31% clean sheet ratio. Unfortunately for them though, they are not particularly good up front and their Goals For statistic of 53 is…

Newport County v Blackpool Betting Tips: Visitors to come out on top

This League Two match sees two teams at opposite ends of the table go head-to-head as relegation strugglers Newport County host play-off chasers Blackpool. Newport may have won their last two matches, the first two under the guidance of caretaker boss Michael Flynn, but, unfortunately for them, they are still a huge seven points off safety. Having said that, the fact they have a game in hand gives them a fair bit of hope going into their last ten games. The Exiles have had goal-scoring problems for most of this campaign and have the third-worst Goals For record in the…

Barnet v Yeovil Betting Tips: High-scoring encounter expected at The Hive

These two sides are stuck in mid-table mediocrity and so this match is more of a formality rather than having any relegation or promotion purpose. Barnet are on a bit of a bad run at the moment and are without a win in their last five matches, putting them 14th in the table. The Bees have been pretty average in both boxes so far this campaign with just 45 goals scored and 49 conceded in their 36 matches. Additionally, they have also not kept a clean sheet and have found the back of the net a mere five times in…

Doncaster v Notts County Betting Tips: League leaders to prove too good at home

These two sides are at opposite ends of the League Two table with Doncaster Rovers topping the league and Notts County still looking to make sure they survive. Doncaster have not been having the best of times recently and have only won two of their last five games, however, it is of course worth mentioning that they have been unbeaten in those five. Donny have a four-point cushion between themselves and 2nd place whilst the gap between them and the play-offs is a huge 14 so automatic promotion now looks a certainty. Darren Ferguson’s team have got themselves in this…

Notts County v Hartlepool Betting Tips: County to come out on top

This League Two match is a relegation six-pointer as two teams who sit just outside the relegation zone go head-to-head. Notts County have had a fantastic resurgence since Kevin Nolan’s appointment as manager and their recent loss against Stevenage was their first defeat in five league matches. From looking like they were destined for non-league football next season, the world’s oldest professional football club are now five points clear of the drop-zone. Nolan initially struggled to get his side keeping clean sheets but, prior to that loss at Stevenage, his side had kept two on the bounce, including in a…

Crawley Town v Portsmouth Betting Tips: Visitors to prove too good after the break

This League Two match sees mid-table side Crawley Town host play-off occupiers Portsmouth. Crawley have been on an inconsistent run of late and have failed to win back-to-back matches since the beginning of January. Having said that, they achieved a very credible 0-0 draw against table toppers Doncaster Rovers last time out. Although they managed to record a clean sheet in that match against Donny, Crawley have struggled at the back this season and currently have fifth-worst defensive record in the division with 52 goals conceded in 34 games. Unfortunately, they have been unable to balance this out with goals…

Newport County v Leyton Orient Betting Tips: Lack of goals unlikely at Rodney Parade

It is certainly the stage of the season where we can call matches ‘six-pointers’ and this is most definitely one as current relegation zone occupants Newport County host Leyton Orient. Newport are currently bottom of the table after a run of six matches without a win. This match against Leyton Orient is certainly win at all costs as Newport are a huge nine points from safety, albeit with a game in hand. As you would expect from the league’s bottom side, Graham Westley’s men have been poor in both boxes with 37 scored and 53 conceded in 33 league matches.…

Hartlepool United v Exeter City Betting Tips: Grecians to go in again

These two teams are currently 19 points apart in the League Two table with hosts Hartlepool United looking to cling on to Football League survival whilst Exeter City, who will be undertaking the 700 mile roundtrip up north, are chasing promotion via the play-offs. Hartlepool managed to recover from a six-match win-less run to thrash fellow relegation battlers Crewe Alexandra 4-0 in midweek. Perhaps the most surprising aspect of Dave Jones’s side’s victory was the fact they kept a clean sheet, their first in six games, considering they have the worst defensive record in the league with a very alarming…

Accrington Stanley v Wycombe Betting Tips: Rejuvenated hosts to continue scoring goals

Just a few months ago Wycombe were being touted as serious play-off contenders in League Two, but recently things have gone awry for Ainsworth and his men and they’re now without a win in six matches. An away match against a team who’ve really perked up of late in Accrington, isn’t exactly what the doctor ordered and the visitors could continue to feel the pinch at the Crown Ground on Tuesday night. With Wycombe very much out of form right now, this match represents a good opportunity for the hosts to continue their decent form. The bet that catches the…

Exeter City v Blackpool Betting Tips: Grecians can line punters pockets

These two sides are eyeing the play-off places this season but, at the moment, it certainly seems like Exeter City, who sit in 6th, have a much better chance than Blackpool who are currently 14th. Exeter had been on a fantastic run of seven consecutive league wins and no defeats in 12 until they met Plymouth Argyle in the Devon derby and promptly list 3-0. Exeter have somewhat failed to recover since then and have only picked up two points from their two subsequent games. Paul Tisdale’s side have managed to find a very good blend of attack and defence…

Doncaster Rovers v Accrington Stanley Betting Tips: League leaders can bounce back

These two sides have vastly different aims this season with Doncaster Rovers looking to secure promotion to League One by winning the title whilst Accrington Stanley are simply looking to stay in the Football League. Doncaster are still top of the League Two table with a three point cushion despite failing to win any of their last four matches. However, in terms of the last eight games, they are one of the most in form sides in the division having taken 15 points. Darren Ferguson’s men certainly like to focus on attack and it is no surprise that they have…

Carlisle United v Portsmouth Betting Tips: Cumbrians to continue their good form

This League Two match sees two promotion chasers go head-to-head as Portsmouth make the 700 mile round trip up to Carlisle United. Carlisle currently occupy the last automatic promotion spot and are five points ahead of 4th place Luton Town after a run of three wins in their last four league matches. Attack is certainly the basis for Keith Curle’s side with 56 goals scored in just 32 matches – the second-best in the league. However, this attacking style means that they are often exposed at the back and their record of 45 goals conceded is the worst inside the…

Newport v Morecambe Betting Tips: The Shrimps look a good bet at Spytty Park

Bottom-of-the-pile Newport County play host to an improving Morecambe side at Spytty Park on Tuesday night – a match that, like pretty much all of their remaining matches, really is a must win for the struggling hosts. As things stand, Newport will be playing non-league football next season. The Exiles have found life tough during the current campaign and, as they sit rock-bottom of the table, are now seven points from safety. Even with 15 games left to play, retaining their League Two status seems a big ask. On the other hand, despite failing to really set this league alight, Morecambe have…

Accrington Stanley v Cambridge Betting Tips: U’s to make it back-to-back wins

These two sides were both targeting an assault on the play-offs this season but it looks like they are both currently doing their best to keep away from them. How often do we see a team who just missed out on promotion last season (Goal Difference in Accrington’s case) go on to have a terrible season the next time round? Accrington are currently down in 19th and just four points clear of the bottom two. However they are undefeated in their last two and have two games in hand on those in and around them. Stanley have been woeful in…

Colchester v Wycombe Betting Tips: Hosts to come out on top

This is a vitally important match in League Two as two teams who are aiming for the play-offs this season come head-to-head. Colchester are still well within the play-off hunt and are currently just three points off the top seven with a game in hand over most of their rivals, despite two consecutive losses. The U’s are certainly a side who rely on their attacking flair to win matches and have one of the best goal-scoring records in the league with 47 from 31 matches. However, their defence suffers from this rather open style and it is no coincidence that…

Doncaster v Luton Betting Tips: Keepmoat set for a glut of goals

This match-up in League Two is an all-promotion chasing affair as Doncaster Rovers host Luton Town at the Keepmoat Stadium. Although Doncaster are currently top of England’s fourth tier, they have been on a pretty dodgy run recently with just two points taken from a possible nine in their last three league games. This means they are only three points clear at the top of the table having played a game more; however, their promotion charge does not look like being derailed any time soon as they are currently 11 points ahead of 4th place. Goals are generally the order…

Hartlepool v Plymouth Betting Tips: Argyle to continue their scoring run

This League Two match sees relegation-threatened Hartlepool United host automatic promotion hopefuls Plymouth Argyle at Victoria Park. Hartlepool are on a wretched run at the moment with just one point taken from a possible 12 in their last four league games. This means that, although they are three places above the relegation zone, they are just two points above that dreaded 23rd place. Dave Jones has only been at the club for a few matches but it has not been a happy start to his reign and he has been unable to sort out their defensive frailties which means that…

Mansfield v Accrington Betting Tips: Stags can make things worse for Stanley

Mansfield are one of League Two’s most in-form teams right now and they’re presented with a big chance to continue in the same vein when they play host to Accrington at Field Mill on Tuesday night. Having walked all over a struggling Hartlepool team on Saturday, Mansfield find themselves facing another of League Two’s weaker sides here and will surely fancy their chances of making it two commanding victories in three days. Given the way the home side are playing at the moment, they’re naturally the team to be behind here. There are two bets that catch the eye and…

Luton v Hartlepool Betting Tips: Hatters to retain momentum at Kenilworth Road

Two teams who’re in contrasting form right now go head-to-head at Kenilworth Road on Tuesady night as promotion hopefuls Luton play host to lowly Hartlepool. Having lost somewhat unexpectedly against a struggling Cheltenham side a few weeks back, Nathan Jones’ Luton side have bounced back to win each of their last two at home, wins that lead them into this game in good condition. Hartlepool’s dismal campaign went on at the weekend as they slumped to a 4-0 defeat at Mansfield, yet another display where Dave Jones’ team showed they’re lacking both quality and any sort of solidity at the back. Such…

Crewe v Grimsby Betting Tips: Dull affair expected at Gresty Road

This League Two match sees two teams with rather average records in front of goal come head-to-head as Crewe Alexandra host Grimsby Town at Gresty Road. Crewe are currently having a bit of a nightmare and are stuck down in 21st place, just four points above the drop-zone following a run of no wins in their last 11 league matches, unsurprisingly putting them bottom of the League Two form table. As mentioned earlier, Crewe are not great in front of goal, in fact, that’s a bit of an understatement. They are pretty dire when it comes to putting the ball…

This League Two match sees bottom host top as Newport County welcome Doncaster Rovers to Rodney Parade. Welsh side Newport County are rooted to the bottom of the Football League and are currently three points off safety. However, they do have a game in hand on their relegation rivals whilst they are also unbeaten in their last four matches following an abysmal run of eight consecutive league defeats. Although they have the third-worst defensive record in the division and have kept just one clean sheet in that four-match unbeaten run. The Exiles are at least not conceding goals left, right…
