Woking Vs Kidderminster
The mighty Cards have had a three decade rivalry with Kidderminster where Kiddy lie ten points from safety and face Garry Hill’s Cardinals that have lost all of the last six. What an opportunity for Gary Whild’s men to consider an invaluable away win, although their away form this term does not read favourably.
Woking, who were contenders for the play offs after their mid-season resurgence after their FA Cup elimination back in October were looking positive and reactive. In the last half dozen games they have slipped down the table at a rapid pace. Fortunately with Woking’s accumulated points the chances of relegation are slim, but Skybet bet 4/9 on the Cards finishing in the bottom half, which as a lifelong fan is a near certainty the side see themselves as done for the season.
With a Kidderminster side certainly with the greatest need, expect Whild’s men to press forward, which saw them to a win against Lincoln, and netting in all of the last three. The Harriers can have some confidence that Woking has conceded in the entire last eleven, and practically four in every five of all home games at the Kingfield.
The visitors have conceded in all but one on the road this season and this game in the eyes of Woking is to stop the rot, whereas the away side really need to knuckle down now or it is game over for them. Kidderminster can look at the double against the Cards, although I perceive that Hill’s Woking will need some pride back into the side, with contracts up for renewal post season, the home fans deserve better and what better chance than the side rock bottom.
To make a case for fewer than two, on the grounds that the visitors are making a concerted effort to escape from trouble should lead to both netting. Neither can really settle for the draw so see it being won by a goal either way.

Grimsby Vs Wrexham
Two promotion chasing sides enter the fold as Paul Hurst’s Grimsby are looking good as they host Gary Mill’s Wrexham to Blundell Park!
This fixture has not been inundated with goals over the past handful of meetings and both sides has a good record coming into this. Both sides need to keep up the pressure and this could well have a stalemate written over it.
In the last six in all competition both sides are unbeaten with five wins and a draw apiece. The hosts certainly have a hotshot with Irish netting machine Padraig Admond, who has fired home twenty-six goals this term.
Looking at the game, the strategy is simple; the side that concedes the least goals should win. I would not be confident in a barrage of goals in this game on the basis that both are looking to make it ten games without defeat. In addition the dragon has not conceded in any of the last six dating back to early February. With both sides pushing for promotion they could well meet again in the play offs, so in hindsight could be a rehearsal for the business end of the season.
Paul Hurst’s Grimsby are good at grinding results out, usually to their advantage and playing an improving Wrexham side, both will have a draw as a good result. Indeed both will look at nicking the winner but seeing fewer than three goals is likely, on the basis six of the last seven have all landed shy of goals!

Rangers Vs Queen of the South
The Gers are close to the verge of renewing their rivalry with Celtic as the OLD FIRM derby reignites the Scottish football scene. Rangers has been prolific this term topping both the home and away table this season. Queen of the South are lagging towards the bottom of the Championship where their record on the road reflects in the overall league position.
With goals galore in Rangers games this season averaging two-thirds, Mark Warburton’s Rangers has not failed to net at Ibrox this term, with the visitors not short of recent goals in games despite their flagging record.
With such a high percentage of games seeing goals at Ibrox, the prospect of another makes me more sure than not that Warburton’s Rangers will close out the season as dominant as ever. Four of the last seven meetings has seen three or more goals and determine that James Fowler’s Queen of the South has managed to net in five of the last seven meetings.
With such a dominant record at home, seeing another is surely likely especially if hotshot Martin Waghorn and/or Kenny Miller are in form for the hosts.
