Christmas is here, and we’re hoping that the tried and trusted Both Teams To Score coupon will serve us extremely well this weekend with these three selections.
Our treble comes courtesy of action in League One and the Conference. The weather shouldn’t impact proceedings just yet, so let’s keep our fingers crossed for a timely December winner.
Shrewsbury Town V Swindon Town
Micky Mellon’s Shrews have hardly been League One’s most prolific side in 2015/16, but a return of 14 goals in 10 home games shows that they can score goals at the Greenhous Meadow. However, they could need several to secure the points against the division’s most improved side on Saturday.

Shrewsbury are in decent scoring form at home, netting in seven competitive matches on the spin. Meanwhile, the goals of Jamie Collins and co should give them every reason to fancy their chances. However, they have only kept one clean sheet from their last six games here, and the Robins will should find the target too.
After all, Swindon are in great form under new boss Martin Ling and enter this clash on the back of four wins from five. Five of their last six have ended in BTTS winners, though, so they could need to rely on the firepower of Jonathan Obika and Nicholas Ajose once more.
This is a clash that could go either way, but we think attackers will come out on top. Back both teams to score.

Halifax Town V Tranmere Rovers
Cup action meant there were no Conference fixtures last weekend, but the drama resumes just in time for Christmas and we’re backing goals to snow at the Shay as an improving Halifax take on Tranmere Rovers.
The hosts have performed incredibly well without a manager in recent weeks, and are now four games unbeaten in all competitions. Despite their poor season, they still boast 20 goals in 12 home league games while they also scored five in the FA Trophy last weekend. They should fancy their chances of more against an away side that has leaked 14 on the road.
However, it is worth noting that Halifax have conceded 30 goals at home. Meanwhile, their last six league matches have all ended in BTTS winners. If this doesn’t give Gary Brabin’s men reason for optimism, then I don’t know what will.
Both teams are scoring goals while neither boasts a particularly solid defence. There should be goals at either end.

Southport V Bromley
Staying in the Conference, Southport have enjoyed a great start to life under new boss Dino Maamria, and they’ll be hoping to continue their bid for survival with another three points at Haig Avenue on Saturday. However, they shouldn’t expect things all their own way against Bromley.
While the visitors have suffered a dip in form, Mark Goldberg’s men will see this as the perfect chance to get back to scoring ways after two successive blanks. They have plenty of goals in the side, as is evidenced by their return of 18 goals on the road. Nevertheless, a goals against tally of 25 in 12 is a major cause for concern.
Those defensive frailties can be pulled apart by an increasingly confident home side. However, the fact they’ve only won two home games while conceding 21 goals in 12 shows that they are still far from perfect.
Quite frankly, both teams will look at the other and see this as an opportunity to attack. Let’s hope this leads to a game of goals.
