The midweek schedule serves up a handful of fantastic matches across England, with action taking place in the Football League and Conference.
All eyes will be on the Capital One Cup semi-finals but our attentions remain with those league clashes as we look to bash the bookie with this 4/1 BTTS treble
Oldham Athletic V Rochdale POSTPONED
No team has scored more away goals in League One than high-flying Rochdale and Keith Hill’s men will be particularly confident as they make the Tuesday night trip to Boundary Park. However, they should expect a difficult test against Lee Johnson’s Latics.
Oldham have both scored and conceded 18 goals in 12 home games this season, meaning that fans have seen an average of 1.5 goals per game at both ends this term. The hosts will be particularly confident after registering a 3-0 win at Spotland last month, but they must be careful against a Dale side gunning for a third straight league win.
Rochdale have hit 28 goals on the road, including two at Bradford in their last away game, and also enter this clash on the back of netting four at home to Crawley on Saturday. Five of their last six League One encounters have ended in BTTS winners and we can’t see that trend coming under any real threat against Oldham.
Both teams possess one of the division’s top five goalscorers and that firepower should lend to another fascinating encounter here.
BTTS Yes @ 8/11
Aldershot Town V Kidderminster Harriers
A run of three straight league defeats has seen Andy Scott’s Aldershot slip towards the Conference relegation zone and the Shots will be desperate to re-establish the gap by picking up a vital three points against Kidderminster.
Unfortunately for the home side, the Harriers are one of the division’s top sides. However, Gary Whild’s team have also suffered a real dip in form recently, losing three of their last four league matches. Confidence is low in both camps and the incentive to win this one is equally huge for both – that should lead to an attack-minded contest at the Recreation Ground.
Aldershot have scored 16 and conceded 19 at home this season, while Kidderminster boast 16 on the road but have shipped 17. The goals have been flowing and the combination of needing points and vulnerable defences should create a cracking atmosphere on Tuesday night.
This should be an entertaining contest and we’re backing both teams to score.
BTTS Yes @ 4/5
Chester V Lincoln City
Goals are a common feature for Conference rivals Chester and Lincoln and we are predicting another entertaining affair as the pair collide at the Swansway Stadium.
Lincoln’s 29 league games have brought 99 goals this season, with the Imps scoring 52 of those. Chris Moyses’ have netted 21 in 12 away outings, but will be concerned by the fact they’ve also leaked 29 away from Sincil Bank.
The hosts 16 goals and seven wins from their 14 home matches, but have shipped 20 at the wrong end too. Those stats make for particularly pleasant reading, particularly against an away side that also score and concede at a rapid rate.
Lincoln’s last two league matches have been BTTS losers, which is a massive surprise. Back that run to end in Chester.
BTTS Yes @ 8/13
