It’s the end of the month, and we’re looking to celebrate in pay-day weekend by landing this 4/1 treble.
We’re backing six teams from League One, Two and the Conference to all score. Let’s hope that they can provide us with a winner.
Coventry City V Scunthorpe United
Goals have been a common feature at both ends of the pitch when Scunthorpe United are on the road as the Iron have scored 18 and conceded 24 in just 13 matches. In truth, there’s no reason to think the trend will end as they take on Coventry at the Ricoh.
There’s been a quite a lot of drama behind the scenes at Glanford Park in recent weeks, but Scunthorpe will take confidence from the three goals scored against Colchester United last weekend. Nonetheless, they shouldn’t expect to have things all their way against one of League One’s strongest sides.
Coventry might enter this encounter on the back of two straight defeats, but it’s hard to see them firing a blank here. After all, the promotion-chasing Sky Blues have already hit 27 goals in just 14 matches at the Ricoh.
With Scunthorpe’s Paddy Madden facing off against Coventry’s Adam Armstrong, there’s plenty of attacking talent on display. Back both teams to score.

York City V Stevenage
Struggling York City might be sitting bottom of the Football League, but the Minstermen will be quietly optimistic about gaining a positive result against a poor Stevenage side, and this could lead to some intense drama in the crucial League Two showdown.
Jackie McNamara’s men haven’t picked up many points, but they do boast 15 goals from 12 matches at Bootham Crescent and should have no issues finding the target against an away team that has already leaked 27 on the road, including three in their last outing on the road at Plymouth.
Teddy Sheringham’s visitors do boast 20 goals in 14 games away from the Lamex, though, so there’s no reason that they shouldn’t increase that tally against the division’s bottom club. After conceding 24 on home soil already, it’s not like you can fancy the hosts to keep a shutout.
The reverse clash between these sides ended 2-2. A repeat of that drama on Saturday would suit us juts fine.

Woking V Barrow
Our final selection comes from the Kingfield as Garry Hill’s Woking look to bounce back from Tuesday’s loss at Altrincham by climbing into the play-off zone with three points against Barrow. Whatever happens, we should expect to some goals.
Woking’s last five competitive matches have ended in BTTS winners. Despite losing on-loan Dan Holman earlier this month, the Cardinals still have plenty of attacking force in the form of John Goddard and co. Against an away team that’s leaked 37 on the road, finding the net should not be a problem
Barrow has scored 16 on their travels, though, and will be eager to extend that in Surrey against a home side that’s shipped 19 in just 16 home ties. The firepower of Andy Cook should give the visitors confidence. At the very least, they should be looking to get themselves on the scoresheet.
The away side’s last seven league games have brought goals at both ends. We’re predicting another cracker from the Conference here.
