Attentions have already been cast to the upcoming international fixtures but there are still a handful of domestic matches to keep us entertained before that and we’re hoping to take advantage with this Tuesday night BTTS treble.
We’re backing these six teams to all find the target and are hopeful of bashing the bookie to the tune of £50 from a £10 stake.
Alternatively, add an extra two matches and qualify for BetVictor’s Back of the Net promotion.
Oldham Athletic v Rochdale
League One rivals Oldham and Rochdale both claimed impressive victories at the weekend and that momentum in each camp should lead to a game of goals as they meet at Boundary Park.
Keith Hill’s Dale are the second most frequent scorers on the road, posting an impressive 35 goals from just 18 away games. However, they have shipped 26 so the hosts won’t be too worried – especially as they’ve netted 25 at home.
However, the Latics have leaked 30 at Boundary Park and that hasn’t really dried up since the arrival of Dean Holden. In fact, the hosts have lost four straight home matches. On a brighter note, they can take inspiration form a 3-0 win at Spotland earlier in the campaign.
Just four points separates the sides before kick-off and we can expect a close fought battle here. Nonetheless, there should be chances at both ends. Back both teams to score.

Alfreton Town V Dartford
Our second selection comes from a crucial clash at the foot of the Vanarama Conference as two relegation threatened rivals do battle at the Impact Arena.
For Nicky Law’s home side it offers a fantastic opportunity to pull themselves away from the dreaded bottom four by opening a gap of up to eight points over the relegation zone. That in itself will provide a huge incentive for Alfreton to chase a fourth win in six and we think they can do it.
However, desperate Dartford will also fancy their chances and we’d expect a doggish performance from the struggling visitors. Anything but victory would essentially condemn them to relegation and Tony Burman’s men will want to capitalise on Alfreton’s often vulnerable backline.
This is the second head-to-head meeting in a month and Alfreton will be fancied to claim another vital win. Don’t rule Dartford out completely, though, as we think they could push the hosts all the way.

Nuneaton Town V Wrexham
Liam Daish’s Nuneaton remain in an unenviable position but a run of six games undefeated has at least given a slim chance of survival. However, Boro could be in for a tough test on Tuesday night as they welcome an equally in-form Wrexham to the JDRD James Parnell Stadium.
The Welsh visitors are unbeaten in five Conference fixtures, losing just one of their last 14 in all competitions and will be confident about picking up another positive result here. Kevin Wikin’s men have been particularly reliable since the turn of the year and will be looking to veteran striker Louis Moult to fire them to another three points.
However, the Red Dragons know that this won’t be an easy task against a home side who are fighting for survival. Wrexham did register a 1-0 win at the Racecourse Ground back in August but 21 of Nuneaton’s 30 league goals have come at home so the hosts will be equally optimistic.
We’re not sure which way this will go. A score draw could be on the cards.
