Crewe 2-2 Peterborough BET WON
Chesterfield 1-0 Accrington BET WON
After our full house of winners last night in the international games confidence is high. It’s a shame that there aren’t any top flight fixtures around Europe this weekend, but on the positive side we only have to wait until Tuesday for more international action that should be a nice little earner.
Here are my picks for Saturday’s games:
Peterborough over 1.5 team goals v Crewe – 3.00pm ko
Odds – 3/4 Ladbrokes
Peterborough just didn’t turn up last weekend in their 0-2 home loss to Crawley but that is easily forgiven. Before that defeat the Posh had bagged 17 goals in 4 games, and this trip to the Railwaymen of Crewe looks an ideal chance for them to get back on track.
Crewe have been very leaky in defence, conceding no less than 12 goals in their 5 games so far this season. They are undefeated at home so far, but Peterborough have far too much quality for League 1 and should score at least 2 here.
Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson is likely to make a few changes after last weeks loss, and with news of an unsettled atmosphere in in the Crewe dressing room due to some disruptive influences as well as the fact that they haven’t beaten their opponent in the last 6 meetings between them, this bet looks a very good one.
Chesterfield to keep a clean sheet v Accrington – 3.00pm ko
Odds – Evens Ladbrokes
It’s top vs bottom of League 3 in this clash and it couldn’t of come at a worse time for struggling Accrington who have managed to gain just 1 point form their opening 5 games. More to the point, the visitors haven’t scored a goal in 5 games and over 450 minutes of playing time.
Chesterfield are playing some good football, will welcome back captain Ian Evatt after he returned to the club in the simmer and will be up against an Accrington side that have even more injury woes. Luke Joyce, Danny Webber, Michael Liddell, Nicky Hunt and Ian Dunbavin all miss out and I just can’t see them scoring at the Proact Stadium.
