FA Cup action means that we’ve got a slightly limited fixture list. Nevertheless, we’re expecting to see plenty of drama across the Football League and Conference. We’re hoping to capitalise with an enhanced odds treble on the BTTS treble.
Using 888sport’s generous sign up, a £10 treble returns over £140. Even if you’re exempt from the offer, odds of nearly 9/2 on these six teams to score has got to be tempting.
Huddersfield Town V Wolverhampton Wanderers
Results haven’t been kind to Kenny Jackett’s Wolves in recent weeks, with his men failing to win any of their last five matches in the Championship. However, five of their last six have ended in BTTS winners and we don’t see the goals drying up as they head to the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.
The Molineux club have scored 20 goals on the road, but have also leaked 19 over the course of 15 matches. Nevertheless, their attacking players are still finding net despite losing Benik Afobe to Bournemouth and they should fancy their chances against a weak home side.
Huddersfield stopped the rot with a 2-0 win at Nottingham Forest last weekend. However, that was their first win in six competitive matches. The five they failed to win all ended in BTTS winners, though, and the goals of Nakhi Wells should give them a fantastic chance here.
It’s unlikely to be a nine-goal thriller, but there should be chances at both ends. We’re backing both teams to score.

Chesterfield V Crewe Alexandra
The League One relegation dog fight is getting very exciting, and both Chesterfield and Crewe will enter Saturday’s clash with huge aspirations of clinching three points in this crucial battle at the bottom.
Between them, the two sides have shipped 104 goals in just 62 matches and have mustered just two clean sheets in 2016. Both clubs were involved in score draws last weekend while October’s reverse clash as Gresty Road also saw goals at either end.
Danny Wilson’s hosts haven’t scored too many goals in recent weeks, but the strikeforce of Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and Lee Novak should cause problems for the visitors. Meanwhile, the away side have found the target in six of their last seven and shouldn’t struggle against a side that hasn’t registered a league shutout since late October.
A win could be vital for either side, which is why attack should be the main focus in both camps. Let’s hope that leads to intense drama.

Macclesfield Town V Dover Athletic
Our final selection comes from the Conference as John Askey’s men look to end their losing streak four. However, it might not be easy for the Silkmen as they take on one of the division’s best attacking outfits.
Results have eluded the hosts recently, but they have at least scored in each of their past two. Moreover, their record at the Moss Rose includes seven wins and 20 goals from 15 matches. They should be ready to punish an away defence that has conceded 26 on the road.
Dover have scored 26 away goals too, though, and will be desperate for a win as they look to retain their play-off spot. With three separate players boasting over a dozen goals this season, firing a blank seems unlikely here.
It was 2-1 to Dover when the sides met back in October. A repeat scoreline on Saturday would suit us just fine.
