September is already here and teams up and down the country are starting to find their feet. Let’s hope the goals will keep flowing on Saturday with our BTTS treble.
There’s no action in the top two divisions due to the international break, but these three games from the lower divisions could give us something to cheer regardless. Here are our selections!
Doncaster Rovers v Peterborough United
It’s been a fantastic start to the season for Grant McCann’s Posh, who have picked up four wins from four to establish themselves as the early pacesetters in League One. More importantly, having also conceded in each of those matches, they’ve kept up their trend of being a BTTS favourite. There’s a strong chance they’ll be keeping it up this weekend at Doncaster.
A trip to the Keepmoat won’t be easy for Peterborough, but they should be confident after scoring four times in both of their away games thus far. With Jack Marriot and Junior Morias already among the goals, the visitors should be expected to make the net ripple once more.
Doncaster’s start hasn’t been brilliant, but a return of six goals in four games shows that the hosts know where the goal is. Manager Darren Ferguson will demand a big performance against his former club too, and will look to John Marquis for inspiration.
These are certainly two of the best sides in the division, especially going forward. Expect that to show here.
BTTS Yes @ 8/13
Crawley Town V Yeovil Town
In League Two, Harry Kewell’s Crawley have registered just one goal in two games at the Checkatrade.com Stadium. However, they can enter Saturday’s clash against Yeovil with far greater optimism in attack, even if they are unlikely to have things all their own way.
Yeovil’s goals against tally may be distorted by the opening day hammering by Luton, but the Glovers are yet to keep a shutout in four competitive away games this term. This should leave the door open for the hosts to score, but it doesn’t mean the visitors won’t grab a positive result.
After all, attacking duo Francois Zoko and Olufela Olomola already boast seven goals between them this season. This should give Darren Way’s men every hope of punishing a team that has shipped four in two home games.
It’s a difficult game to predict the outcome of, but we strongly fancy both teams to score.
BTTS Yes @ 4/6
Barrow v Boreham Wood
Their away form may be terrible, but Barrow’s home record has been pretty positive in the opening weeks of 2017-18 in spite of an early managerial casualty. However, they could be up against it as they welcome a strong Boreham Wood to Wilkie Road.
The hosts have scored four times in three home games and can expect more of the same here given that the visitors have shipped six in three away matches. Having said that, though, their record of just one goal conceded on their turf could be under major threat.
Boreham Wood boast eight goals on the road while a number of players, including Bruno Andrade, are already scoring for fun. This should give Luke Garrard’s men a fantastic chance of picking up another positive result. At the very least, we’d expect them to find the net at some stage.
Let’s juts hope the other two games come in to give us the perfect start to September.
BTTS Yes @ 3/4
