This game might not stand out as a both teams to score banker at first look, but there are plenty of reasons to include them on your goals galore coupon.
This is a relegation scrap, and you won’t wind two teams fighting harder to win a game tonight. Oldham have had some tough games recently against the leagues top teams, and will be pleased to be facing a more beatable team this week.
Hartlepool don’t score many goals in general, and have failed to hit the target in 4 games now. However, there’s nothing like a 6 pointer to get you back on track and I can see this being a high-scoring clash.
Southend v Plymouth 7.45pm
League 2 couldn’t be closer in the the fight against relegation, and this clash features 2 of the 5 teams locked on 40 points.
Both of these teams are capable in front of goal, and it’s worth noting that Southend have scored and conceded in their last 6 home games in the spin.
Visitors Plymouth have only picked up 5 points in their last 13 away games, but with Southend’s under par home defence we should see both teams netting at least once at Roots Hall.
Cambridge v Ebbsfleet 7.45pm
Ebbsfleet shocked Southport by hammering them 4-1 at the weekend, a result that may yet prove vitally important in their relegation battle. That victory was their first in 5, and may give them the confidence they need to get some kind of result against 9th placed Cambridge.
However, the hosts will fancy their chances after winning their last 2 games. That said, Ebbsfleet have scored and conceded in 8 of their last 10 away games so I’m hoping this game produces exactly the same.
