Saturday Select includes some choice selections that are worth considering for this Saturday’s fixtures however you are looking to bet on the games this weekend. With Premier League to Conference selections, check out which fixtures are on the hitlist this time around.
Preston North End v Bradford City
Despite having lost their last two league games Preston still sit in second position in the league table and a comfortable 3-0 win over non- league Havant and Waterlooville may be just what they needed in order to overcome their blip in form. The Lilywhites are unbeaten at Deepdale this season in eight home matches. Bradford meanwhile have been slowly slipping down the league standings after managing just one solitary win in eight league games with four losses coming in their last five fixtures. They also have fitness doubts over key target man striker James Hanson as well as Stead and Liddle players that could be missed badly if unavailable selection come 3pm at kick off.
Luton Town v Tranmere Rovers
Luton have won eight of their last ten matches in the league and picked up a point a piece in the remaining two. They last lost a league game on September 6th and sit firmly on top of the League Two form table. Tranmere by contrast haven’t won in the league for 11 matches stretching as far back as the last weekend in August.. They will be buoyed by two wins in their last two cup games including a win at 4th placed Bury in the JPT but will miss Jason Koumas, Danny Woodards and George Donnelly who are out with injuries and suspensions respectively.
Shrewsbury Town v Mansfield Town
Shrewsbury have won their last five league games on the bounce to climb up to third position in the league table. They have the best home record in the division bar none. They are unbeaten at the New Meadow with seven wins in eight and have conceded just three goals there. Mansfield on the other hand have only managed one win in eight away games and have a long list of injured first team players heading into this game.
Barnet v AFC Telford
Despite losing at home to Torquay in their last match Barnet still sit six points clear at the top of the Conference Premier division. They will be eager to bounce back to winning ways as soon as possible and have a great chance to do so as they welcome rock bottom of the league Telford to The Hive. AFC Telford have already conceded 42 goals in just 19 games averaging in excess of two goals per game. They have only won three times but two of those have come against teams in the upper echelons of the table in Torquay United and Woking so there is a touch of unpredictability about them for a team with such dismal stats although you would never want to be backing them to win that’s for sure.
