  1. Weekend > Feb 24th - 26th

      Fleetwood v Northampton Fleetwood are bang on form right now, unbeaten in 16 and with only 1 home defeat all season, Northampton have decent away form but not strong enough for the cod army. http://www.fleetwoodtownfc.com/news/article/2016-17/match-preview-fleetwood-town-northampton-town-3589985.aspx - Fleetwood preview Fleetwood @ 1.95  Notts County v Yeovil Notts are one of a couple of teams that have dagged themselves out of the relegation position with a run of good results and some fight, recent results include a draws with in form Exeter and Mansfield, and with Stead and Ameobi they have experience and firepower. Yeovil have the worst away record in the division with only 2 wins and 6 draws, and are relying on home form not to be dragged into the relegation battle. Notts County @ 2.30  Only a brief analysis,kids off school, doing my head in...

    Like Southport v Chester @ 2.62, Southport are fighting hard for survival whilst Chester seems to be on the beach already, losing the last 4, including a 4-2 loss at lowly Maidstone. Cant do a full analysis this week as kids off school and i have to fight them for the laptop!!

    I know its a cup game but Lincoln look a huge price against Boreham Wood (1 win in the last 8!)

    Id have to reluctantly agree with you on the Bradford bet, we've been shite since Reece Styche went to T**worth. Wright has been constantly rotating the squad, trying to find a team that gels, but it hasnt happened. Its not that we've lost games, but that we've lost without a fight - no spirit or desire, and it wont be long before the crowd gets on Wrights case especially if we lose this one. A definate '6 pointer', but the general view is that we wont be relegated anyway as worcester will apply to go down, not really the attitude you want though!

    Nice one @sammydubs youve done some of the write up for me already! Was also going to go for Burgess hill and Barrow (Torquay are going to have a very long round trip as well!). My other ones are: Bromley v Solihull Bromley are on form at the  minute, winning 6 and losing 2 of their last 8 home games. the losses against Forest Green and Dover, Solihull are W2 D2 L3 in the lat 8 away, including a defeat to lowly Woking on Tuesday. http://www.solihullmoorsfc.co.uk/news/details.php?news_id=12567 Bromley @ 1.95   Dartford v Chelmsford Six wins in a row have propelled Dartford up the table, they have lost 1 and won 7 of their last 8 (and all but 2 of those games have had 4 or more goals), and lost once at home all season, at the minute theyre scoring goals for fun. Chelmsford City have playoff aspirations of their own and were in with a shout of the title race up until mid October. The Essex club went seven games without a win, drawing six of them. The Clarets have since got back to winning ways, with defeat at Ebbsfleet United an exception, yet on the weekend they shared the points with St Albans City to drop two in a frustrating afternoon. Stringer noted his attack wasn’t clinical enough, a problem he’s noticed with frequency this campaign. They have won once in the last 6 away matches. They have won 4 league matches since october 22nd (W4 D7 L7), but these 4 wins were against teams in the bottom 4 (whitehawk, truro and Bishops stortford x2) http://www.dartfordfc.com/match-preview-dartford-vs-chelmsford-city/ - Dartford preview http://nonleague.pitchero.com/news/big-test-for-clarets-against-darts-53437/ - Chelmsford preview Dartford @ 1.80
  6. UK Weekend > Feb 18th - 20th

    Southend v Northampton  Both teams meet during a run of form. Southend have lost twice since october, and only one of those at home (v sheff utd). Since september their home record is - W8 D4 L1, scoring 26, conceding 13 ( 4 of those v sheff utd) an average of 2 goals scored per game, a run that has put them within a point of the play-offs. Manager Phil Brown has no injury concerns and has plenty of competition for places, especially strikers, stating -  "It’s a lovely position to be in as a manager when you’ve got the firepower and a strike force that six or seven on any given day can, not just get one, but get hat-tricks. They can get goals. Northampton have won 3 of the last 4 matches, (which i think is why the bookies have them too short), however, they were all at home against Swindon, Chesterfield and Coventry - the bottom 3 teams in the division!  Before these 4 games their form since Oct 12 is W1 D0 L10, and they lost 5 in a row before the win over Coventry. They are a shaky side and have a couple of good players returning from injuries, but Southend have too much firepower, and if they (Southend) score first, they may go on to score a hatful. http://www.southendunited.co.uk/news/article/2016-17/preview-this-is-my-best-strikeforce-says-brown-3579741.aspx - southend preview http://www.ntfc.co.uk/fixtures-results/match-preview/ - northampton preview Southend @ 2.05  Southend & over 2.5 goals @ 3.00

    i agree, Nice might be going through a sticky patch but i watched Lorient play St Etienne and Lorient were really poor.

    What a nightmare! And if i heard Jeff Stelling say "and Accrington have only scored 1 away goal all season" again, i would have put my fist through the telly!
  9. Midweek Non League 14th-15th February

    Not much to fancy apart from the Guiseley v Sutton match, the only one i can see is... Buxton v Hednesford Hednesford made the long trip to get tonked 5-1 at Blyth on saturday, and another away match (a lot nearer though) is just what they dont need. Hednesford since mid november are - W3 D1 L7, and of those away only W1 L6 (conceding 20 scoring 9), during that period from mid november they have only failed to score once! Buxton have had extra time to prepare after their match at Frickley was called off, their last match was a 2-1 victory over Stafford. Buxton lie in 7th place in the league and could go second with a win, but have had a 'blip' of late, their last 4 matches W1 (stafford) D1 L2, overall though their record, especially at home, is good W9 D4 L1 for the season, the loss being in their last 4. I think the extra rest compared to Hednesfords Blyth journey, looking like theyve got over their blip with a win over stafford, motivation to go second as well as Hednesfords poor away record make it a Buxton win. Although Hednesfords scoring record is worth paying attention to. http://www.hednesfordtownfc.com/2017/02/match-preview-buxton-a-3  Buxton @ 1.83 Buxton & BTTS @ 3.20

    Mansfield v Accrington Im still on the Mansfield juggernaut, and i dont think Accrington have anything to stop them. The Mansfield 18 who were involved in Saturday's win over Hartlepool will all be in contention for the Accrington match, as well as winger Ashley Hemmings and striker Pat Hoban, who were both left out of the matchday squad against Pools. Mansfield have kept six clean sheets during the eight-match unbeaten streak, and have currently gone 270 minutes without conceding.For Accrington, defender Matty Pearson and midfielder Scott Brown completed their respective suspensions in the 2-0 defeat to Portsmouth on Saturday and also confirmed the signing of Portuguese winger Erico Sousa on a deal until the end of the season. Since 1st October Accringtons away form reads - W1 D1 L7, scoring only twice (1-0 win at crewe, and 2-1 loss t cambridge) conceded 13. And Saturdays trip to Portsmouth was a long one, and must have taken it out of them! Read more at http://www.mansfieldtown.net/fixtures-results/match-preview/index.aspx#PY2pY20GKW31qp6H.99 Mansfield -1 @  3.75 Plymouth v Leyton Orient Orient picked up their first point of the year with a 1-1 draw at Yeovil (a last minute equaliser), but like Accrington have another away trip to second placed Plymouth who beat rivals in-form Exeter at home. Plymouth boss Derek Adams doesn't tend to change a winning team too often and he will be well aware of the potential banana skin that this tie could be.New recruits Ryan Taylor, Antoni Sarcevic and Matty Kennedy seem to have found their feet quickly and have settled into an attacking four alongside Graham Carey, the three new players have all scored for the Pilgrims, as has defender Jakub Sokolik who arrived on a free transfer last month. Plymouth have the third best home record in the division W9 D3 L3 Read more at http://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/plymouth-argyle-v-leyton-orient-everything-you-need-to-know/story-30135073-detail/story.html#L9F9bpqskqOiZdyw.99 Plymouth to win to nil @  2.50  Plymouth & Mansfield double  @ 3.42 Mansfield -1 & Plymouth to win to nil double @  9.38

    Merthry and Grantham both won, Aldershot conceded the equaliser against 9 man Barrow in the 90+5th minute!!!

    Hmmm...Mansfield and Plymouth double  @ 3.42? Bears further investigation!
  14. Weekend > Feb 11th

    I was considering Solihull myself, Sutton are poor away from home W0 D2 L6 in the last 8 away games. They will be scared sh*tless of an injury or suspension prior to the Arse. Solihull won the reverse fixture 3-1 in august, just that solihull are a bit Jekyll and Hyde - win a few, lose afew, without any consistent run of form. solihull @ 2.90,   to win to nil @  5.50,   draw/solihull @ 7.00,   solihull/solihull @ 4.50
  15. Weekend > Feb 11th

    Grantham v Stourbridge Both teams on an amazing run of form. Stourbridge having lost once in the last 15 league matches (a 4-1 defeat away to Sutton Coldfield at end of Jan), Grantham are unbeaten in the last 15, seeing them rise to 6th in the table, 4 points behind second placed Stourbridge. Blyth are running away with the league on 65 points (10 ahead of stourbridge).  The bookies make Stourbridge slight favourites, however, Stourbridge have lost 2 of the last 4; after the sutton Coldfield loss (their last away match), they played in the league cup and lost 4-1 at home... to Grantham! I think Grantham must have the upper hand in this one, knowing they beat Stourbridge 3 weeks ago, racing to get into the play-offs, while stourbridge cant catch Blyth but are safely in the play-offs. http://www.stourbridgefc.com/teams/61056/news/grantham-town-v-stourbridge-match-preview-1751997.html - Stourbridge match preview http://www.granthamtownfc.com/teams/59867/match-centre/2-40463 -match report Stourbridge 1 - Grantham 4.
