After ending March with a BTTS winner on Easter Monday, we’re hoping to start the month of April in similar fashion with another treble on Saturday.
If the six teams we’ve backed do all find the target, we’ll be celebrating a payout of over 7/2. That has to sound appealing to all punters wanting to start April with a bang. The big question is which teams should you back?
Here’s everything you need to know.
Swindon Town v Fleetwood Town
A run of five games without a win has left Steven Pressley’s Fleetwood sitting dangerously close to the League One drop zone, and a drought of goals has been their major downfall. However, the vulnerable Swindon defence should give them high hopes of finally bringing that to an end.
The visitors have only scored 15 times in 19 away games this season and enter Saturday’s contest on the back of three straight blanks. Nevertheless, the quality of Robert Grant and Shola Ameobi will give them reason for optimism, particularly as the hosts have shipped 34 goals at the County Ground.
Those defensive vulnerabilities make Swindon’s the second worst home defence in the division and the Robins have also leaked 10 in their last two matches alone. On the other hand, the goals of Nicholas Ajose will give Luke Williams’s men a fantastic chance of finding the target too.
Attack should be the best form of defence for both sides. Let’s hope that leads to a game of goals.

Morecambe v Barnet
League Two side Morecambe have been a firm favourite on the BTTS coupon this season and, despite the fact they’ve failed to score in two consecutive fixtures, we expect them to be involved in another exciting contest as they welcome Barnet to the Globe Arena.
Jim Bentley’s men have scored 28 goals in just 19 home games and the firepower of Shaun Miller, Tom Barkhuizen and Paul Mullin should have very little trouble against an away defence that has already leaked 35 on the road.
Morecambe have conceded 35 at home themselves, though. Moreover, Martin Allen’s men are unbeaten in six games away from the Hive. Strikers John Akinde and Michael Gash should be eager to help the Bees continue that improved form, and we’d be surprised if they don’t at least get on the scoreboard.
The reverse clash did end 0-0, but we think this one will be far more exciting. Back both teams to score.

Bromley v Lincoln City
Chris Moysey’s Imps might not be registering many points right now, but goals certainly haven’t been a problem as they enter the month of April on the back of five straight BTTS winners. Quite frankly, there’s nothing to suggest that those goals will dry up as they make the trip to the Courage Stadium.
Lincoln’s 20 away game have brought 29 goals for and 36 against. Clean sheets are as common as rocking horse crap when the Imps are involved, and the fact is that Bromley’s record makes for equally good reading.
The hosts have scored 35 times in 20 home games, but have also shipped 21. Even a change of management hasn’t made a difference to the frequency of goals, with Monday’s 2-2 draw against Forest Green Rovers a fitting reflection of their season so far.
With just one point separating these two sides before kick-off, Bromley could be set for a second score draw on the spin. Whatever happens, we would expect goals at both ends.
