Welcome, and firstly thanks for taking the time to read this feature. With international fixtures, the coupon is thinner than usual. I do follow in particular League’s one, two and the Conference, so a normal weekend for me in the office?!
Our over 2.5 goals treble won last weekend in excess of 9/2, so let’s try and replicate this!
Kidderminster Vs Aldershot
The last time I was at the Harriers ground was fairly recently when the visitors on that day was Woking, and they lost. Kidderminster was not all that bad and struck with a Jordan Murphy winner in the 87th minute. Can Woking’s neighbours do any better?
The hosts are uncharacteristically riding at the wrong end of the league, one off a foot from the bottom of the table. Kidderminster have been weak in attack throughout the season, but played some defensive football, which have seen some narrow margin losses, especially at home.
The shots will be looking to conserve some energy before their FA Cup replay next Tuesday at Bradford, but have played some tight games away more so in the last three where they are unbeaten.
In the last six home and away, on the goal line, five of the last six host’s games have all headed under, whereas three of the last six Aldershot games have gone either way. There is no surprise bookies are split on the outcome although a couple edge one over the other.
Aldershot manager Barry Smith will use his experience to set up for the win, but will play their fluid style to outplay the hosts. With Kidderminster’s relatively young side, they will set up to defend, which has seen them net just seven at home all season.
With Aldershot wanting to get momentum before next week’s FA Cup replay, they are more than likely not to go all out, keep it tight. I see a low scorer here and is noteworthy the last two seasons have all headed under on goals.

Woking Vs Macclesfield
Since Garry Hill publicly put all his players up on the transfer market, they have not won, and have netted just one goal since. Macclesfield could be coming into this at the right time and can fully focus on the League after their narrow defeat to Portsmouth last week in the FA Cup.
Woking have bought a few players in on short term loan spells to try and bridge the gap, but the team appear to have lost some momentum as they look for their first home win in the sixth attempt. Macclesfield on the road are winless in three, but the last time they were down this neck of the woods they pocketed a three goal win at Aldershot.
Both sides have hotshot players, with Woking having Josh Goddard on nine goals and Macclesfield’s Kristian Dennis netting twelve and has netted four goals in the last four played.
The visitors will look to capitalise on the host’s current state of affairs and would not be surprised if we saw some goals in the game. Woking in the last two playing out low scorers, but this fixture has some goal thriller history. The Cards will be spurred on by their ever loyal fans and will fight back if they were to go a goal down.
With the motivational factor from Cards boss, the players bought in have not had much time to gel, so will be interesting what happens. There is an expectation for the hosts to deliver and grind out a result, but feel the script will go out the window in the opening third! I expect to see goals with five of the last six all heading over 2.5 goals.

Luton Vs Barnet
A battle of a relatively local clash, with a short journey up the M1 where Barnet will look to make it a fourth game undefeated and third successive win on Saturday. The Kenilworth Road faithful should enjoy a good turnout with the locality of the sides. Barnet look to enhance their position with a result, with Luton just the wrong side of mid-table.
Both sides have hotshot names in their side, with the visitors calling upon Michael Gash, whose name has appeared on the score sheet six times this season. Luton have joint top scorers in Josh Marriott and Cameron McGeehan on five, but another name appeared, which is a football league household name; Craig MacKail-Smith, who again has been a player people will not forget!
With both sides in short term good form both sides will be up for a battle, with five of the last six Luton games seeing both net and four of the last six from the bees, so this should edge over the line.
The head to head in this fixture have all seen at least two goals, with three of five with three or more. I expect to see another with the talent pool surfacing the valued support on Saturday.
