It’s payday weekend, and what better way to celebrate than landing a 55/1 treble? For the sake of a £10 stake, we could be adding a monkey to our bank balance, and that should be enough incentive for anyone to have a punt.
We’ve picked three teams to win their respective games without keeping a clean sheet. Whether it’s 2-1 or 5-4 doesn’t matter. Three points and no shutout could make us even happier than the fans of those respective teams.
Fleetwood Town v Gillingham
In League One, Fleetwood Town will be fairly satisfied with their start to the campaign, especially at Highbury where they have lost just one of seven matches. As they welcome Gillingham on Saturday, they’ll be fully expected to pick up another crucial three points – although they might not have things all their own way.
Uwe Rosler’s men have scored 12 times at home, with David Ball and co. proving that they are more than capable of firing the Trawlermen to success. Given that the struggling visitors have leaked 17 in just seven away games, goals shouldn’t be a problem for the hosts.
The Gills haven’t tasted success in seven competitive matches, but they have scored in six of those outings. In fact, their last five have all ended in BTTS winners. There’s no reason to think that run will end against a home side that has conceded nine in seven home matches.
Fleetwood won last season’s corresponding fixture via a 2-1 scoreline. A repeat scoreline this weekend would suit us perfectly.
BTTS & Fleetwood Win @ 10/3
Doncaster Rovers v Wycombe Wanderers
Despite losing at Blackpool last week, high-flying Doncaster are well on their way to fighting for an immediate promotion back to League One. An unbeaten home record at the Keepmoat has been central to the early season success of Darren Ferguson’s side, and it should help them to another win against the Chairboys.
Rovers have won five of seven matches and boast a tally of 14 goals. The front pairing of Andrew Williams and John Marquis have been supported superbly by the goals of club legend James Coppinger this season. Quite frankly, it’s hard to see the hosts not scoring at least a couple against the out-of-form visitors.
Wycombe are still searching a first win on the road. In spite of only scoring four times in seven matches, the visitors can look to capitalise on any frailties that may show after Doncaster’s 4-2 loss at Blackpool. We’re backing Adebayo Akinfenwa and co. to cause a few problems.
Even if the Wanderers do score, however, it’s unlikely to see Gareth Ainswirth’s men avoid defeat.
BTTS & Doncaster Win @ 11/4
Aldershot Town v Guiseley
Back-to-back wins earlier in the month may have dragged Guiseley off of the bottom, but Adam Lockwood’s men are undoubtedly in big trouble this season. And it’s likely to show once again as they make the trip to the Electrical Services Stadium.
Guiseley’s slight improvement should give them optimism in the attacking third. In fairness, scoring goals hasn’t been their biggest problem as Michael Rankine, Jordan Preston, and Adam Boyes are all capable of scoring. Their biggest problem, however, has been keeping the opposition at bay.
Aldershot’s home record of 13 goals in eight games should fill them with confidence, not least because they’ve won six of those matches. Despite their poor recent form, Gary Waddock’s men will expect to bounce back with a win, even if they do concede.
The visitors can give the Shots a run for their money, but the home side’s added quality should prevail.
