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.
Swindon Town v Fleetwood Town
Swindon have won their last three league games on the spin and have beaten all three key promotion rivals in those games in Preston, Bristol City and Peterborough United. Confidence will be sky high at the County Ground after that run of results which has seen them climb to second position in the table and they now sit just one point behind leaders Bristol City. Fleetwood don’t look likely to be able to bring a halt to the Robins run. They have one of the worst away records in the division having won just once and lost five in their last six matches on their travels.
Yeovil v Preston
Preston sit in third position in the league table and travel to Huish Park to take on Yeovil who sit third from the bottom. They arrested a blip in form with a great win over fellow promotion candidates Bristol City before drawing with Oldham in the Cup. Preston have won four of five games played away from home at clubs sitting in the bottom half of the table and they really need to build on recent results but will have to do it without on eof the league’s best players in Joe Garner. Yeovil are fresh off a good win against Notts County away but they have only won 1 solitary game in nine matches at home this season and will have their work cut out putting back to back wins together.
MK Dons v Colchester United
MK Dons have the best home record in the league bar none with 6 wins and just one defeat in nine played so far. Colchester meanwhile have won just twice in nine and have conceded 14 goals in those games. They sit down in the relegation zone and whilst they are able to score concede too many and could well be exposed and outscored by the likes of Benik Afobe and the MKDons attack.
Luton v Mansfield
Luton sit third in the League Two standings after a great unbeaten run which came to an end at the hands of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s Burton Albion last time out. They will be eager to return to winning ways at home against a Mansfield side that doesn’t yet have a full time manager in place after the departure of Paul Cox. The Stags have just won once in nine attempts away from home.
Hartlepool v Wycombe
League leaders Wycombe make the long trip up to the North East to face bottom of the league Hartlepool and they will not want to be leaving with anything less than three points. It has been a miserable season for Hartlepool especially for fans watching at Victoria Park who have seen just one solitary win in nine games and only cheered in a meagre six goals. Wycombe meanwhile have enjoyed their travels and have won 6 and only lost one game in nine away fixtures played so far this season. They should prove to be too good.
