    Nothing big during the action this mid-week but just having a small acca for a bit of fun given the last couple of sessions have been profitable. Bognor go to Farnborough tonight and they have yet to win since they beat Lewes on what was their first game of the season. Bognor look pretty strong this season. Lewes are another team who are struggling and are now mangerless. They host a strong Tonbridge side. VCD are another poor side in the Ryman Premier and Billericay look another away team who should win. In the Northern Prem Nantwich should have too much for a very poor Ramsbottom. It pays 8.75/1 with BetVictor and looks worth doing to small stakes.

    Barrow v Kidderminster and Lincoln v Torquay
    Barrow are around the same price as Bromley were on Tuesday night and the temptation was to go steaming in again as Barrow’s home form has been strong bar the loss to Aldershot last Saturday. They also won on Tuesday at Macclesfield which was a good effort given they had put four past FGR three days before. Kidderminster clearly aren’t too far away from getting a positive result, but it a long trip north to Barrow seems an unlikely place for it come. Lincoln let the treble down on by only drawing against Altrincham, but I think they are worth sticking in a double with Barrow. They host Torquay and like Kidderminster it is hard to see them getting anything out of what is a long trip against a team yet to be defeated at home. Apparently over 120 applied for the Torquay job, but given Paul Cox left because he felt he was unlikely to be paid at any time during the season, you have to wonder who is going to want to take it. They face a very stiff task to try and avoid relegation. The double pays 2.4/1 with Bet 365.

    Wrexham v Eastleigh
    I was rather surprised when I saw Richard Hill had resigned as Eastleigh manager as I still felt he could turn things around. Granted Tuesday’s 5-2 loss to Dover wasn’t ideal given their current run of form, but having their keeper sent off at 2-2 was what cost them. I backed them for the league again in the week at a massive 25/1 as I still think they are going to go very close to winning the league. Every team goes through a bad spell and I fully expect them to start winning again sooner rather than later. Chris Todd takes charge for this game and I am sure he will get a good performance out of their players. Wrexham have certainly had a good start to the season and look likely title contenders so it is certainly a tough game for the away side, but they are a crazy price (21/5 BetVictor) for this game given the strength Eastleigh have.

    FA Cup
    The National League South and North sides enter the competition this weekend and as usual there are plenty of what appear to be mis-matches. I can’t see any obvious bets to be had upset wise and I am always wary of getting to heavily involved at this stage of the competition. So I have found six teams who are all odds on and look to have very winnable games. Solihull should be way too strong for Oadby, Grays and Staines got a 1-1 draw on Wednesday in the league and they should be Hullbridge Sports and Stanway Rovers respectively. Margate have finally got going in the league and they should beat Potters Bar now their form has turned. Nuneaton should really be shorter to beat Halesown and finally Hednesford should be capable of beating a struggling Bedworth. The six fold pays around 9.8/1 with Bet365.

    The double would be the nap of the weekend.
    Depends on how seriously Ebbsfleet take the competition given winning the league will be their main aim. Obviously they look the most likely winners but ones to leave alone at the price. Havant have a winnable game but they are so inconsistent and don't really look like a team to trust at short odds. Poole will have a chance but prices look about right. Could easily make a case for Burgess Hill being shorter than 8/13. Blyth have a tough game against a side who have won their last three.
    There will be upsets I am sure and out of the three you have chosen Rushall would be the most likely, but like I say I struggled to see where any possible value bets could be.

    Tricky game the Barrow one as they seem to have picked up a habit of winning 1-0 at home, but Aldershot are scoring goals so could be hard to keep a clean sheet against them. Not a game I would play in, but think Aldershot are over priced if anything. Suspect Solihull will win, but Curzon are improving and have had some good results of late. VCD are one of the leagues weakest teams, but Met Police have lost four of their last six. Not sure I would be wanting to get involved at short odds. My other suggestion is you start backing singles, not saying all trebles are a bad thing especially if you fancy a few shorties, but the more teams you put in a bet the harder it is to win. Singles are the best way to build a profit. For example if it was me doing your three picks tomorrow I would do a single on Barrow and a double on the other two. By all means due a little treble on the side and I always stick all my picks in an acca as well as a just in case they all win.

    Boreham Wood v Wrexham Bromley of course beat Boreham Wood on Tuesday and I am opposing them again on Saturday. That is now three games running that Wood have conceded three goals and as I wrote on Tuesday their defence has become a massive issue. They have only kept one clean sheet all season and with Wrexham having scored in all ten games, including scoring three on five occasions then it is not hard to see Wrexham adding to their tally on Saturday. The other thing to note here though is Wrexham have only kept two clean sheets this season and conceded at least once in their last five. Add to that the face that Wood have only failed to score in two games and have scored in their last six and it is easy to see both teams scoring. That is why I am going for Wrexham to win and both teams to score at 5/2 with Bwin. It isn’t a bet I like doing very often, but as you can see the facts point rather strongly to it happening here and on this occasion the 5/2 looks cracking value. Torquay v Bromley It is seven games since Torquay last picked up three points and they have only managed to beat Macclesfield and Halifax so far this season. To be fair they have drawn their last three games, but again they have come at teams who are struggling. Bromley certainly aren’t struggling after a slow start and have won three on the bounce and only Forest Green have defeated them in their last six. I am more than happy to continue backing Bromley as they continue their rise up the table against a young and inexperienced Torquay team. Marathon are best about an away win at 21/10. AFC Telford v North Ferriby United The home side had initially looked like they had improved for the change of manager, but they have been awful in their last two games and Rob Smith was pretty open to the press about the lack of heart shown from his players. It is fair to say he thinks he has inherited a bad bunch of players and they host a North Ferriby side who have only lost once so far this season. The one slight concern is like last season they are drawing too many matches (6), but in the form they are in and given they have scored 10 in their last three games they should be winning this. The general even money is enough to tempt me in. Maidstone v Bath City Bath have had a superb start to the season and only lost their first game of the season on Tuesday night. The signs had been there though that maybe they aren’t quite as strong as the first few games suggested as they had drawn their three previous matches. Maidstone have been in good form of late having drawn with Gosport and beating Havant and Maidenhead. They were all good efforts and they look to be improving. It will probably be a tight game, but I do think the 6/4 about the home side has just enough value in it to warrant backing them. Oxford City v Eastbourne The best bet of the weekend for me is Oxford. They have only lost once this season and look sure to play a part in the promotion battle this season. They have won four of their last five games and certainly look to have a touch of class about them. They host Eastbourne who bar a 5-1 hammering of a yet to win Basingstoke side, have looked poor in their last four games. They lost 4-1 on Tuesday night to a Margate side who had yet to win this season and also conceded four goals against Havant recently. Oxford are even money with Marathon but I would make them a bit shorter than that.

The general even money is enough to tempt me in. Maidstone v Bath City Bath have had a superb start to the season and only lost their first game of the season on Tuesday night. The signs had been there though that maybe they aren’t quite as strong as the first few games suggested as they had drawn their three previous matches. Maidstone have been in good form of late having drawn with Gosport and beating Havant and Maidenhead. They were all good efforts and they look to be improving. It will probably be a tight game, but I do think the 6/4 about the home side has just enough value in it to warrant backing them. Oxford City v Eastbourne The best bet of the weekend for me is Oxford. They have only lost once this season and look sure to play a part in the promotion battle this season. They have won four of their last five games and certainly look to have a touch of class about them. They host Eastbourne who bar a 5-1 hammering of a yet to win Basingstoke side, have looked poor in their last four games. They lost 4-1 on Tuesday night to a Margate side who had yet to win this season and also conceded four goals against Havant recently. Oxford are even money with Marathon but I would make them a bit shorter than that.

    Tricky game the Barrow one as they seem to have picked up a habit of winning 1-0 at home, but Aldershot are scoring goals so could be hard to keep a clean sheet against them. Not a game I would play in, but think Aldershot are over priced if anything. Suspect Solihull will win, but Curzon are improving and have had some good results of late. VCD are one of the leagues weakest teams, but Met Police have lost four of their last six. Not sure I would be wanting to get involved at short odds. My other suggestion is you start backing singles, not saying all trebles are a bad thing especially if you fancy a few shorties, but the more teams you put in a bet the harder it is to win. Singles are the best way to build a profit. For example if it was me doing your three picks tomorrow I would do a single on Barrow and a double on the other two. By all means due a little treble on the side and I always stick all my picks in an acca as well as a just in case they all win.

    Boreham Wood v Wrexham Bromley of course beat Boreham Wood on Tuesday and I am opposing them again on Saturday. That is now three games running that Wood have conceded three goals and as I wrote on Tuesday their defence has become a massive issue. They have only kept one clean sheet all season and with Wrexham having scored in all ten games, including scoring three on five occasions then it is not hard to see Wrexham adding to their tally on Saturday. The other thing to note here though is Wrexham have only kept two clean sheets this season and conceded at least once in their last five. Add to that the face that Wood have only failed to score in two games and have scored in their last six and it is easy to see both teams scoring. That is why I am going for Wrexham to win and both teams to score at 5/2 with Bwin. It isn’t a bet I like doing very often, but as you can see the facts point rather strongly to it happening here and on this occasion the 5/2 looks cracking value. Torquay v Bromley It is seven games since Torquay last picked up three points and they have only managed to beat Macclesfield and Halifax so far this season. To be fair they have drawn their last three games, but again they have come at teams who are struggling. Bromley certainly aren’t struggling after a slow start and have won three on the bounce and only Forest Green have defeated them in their last six. I am more than happy to continue backing Bromley as they continue their rise up the table against a young and inexperienced Torquay team. Marathon are best about an away win at 21/10. AFC Telford v North Ferriby United The home side had initially looked like they had improved for the change of manager, but they have been awful in their last two games and Rob Smith was pretty open to the press about the lack of heart shown from his players. It is fair to say he thinks he has inherited a bad bunch of players and they host a North Ferriby side who have only lost once so far this season. The one slight concern is like last season they are drawing too many matches (6), but in the form they are in and given they have scored 10 in their last three games they should be winning this.

    Not sure what it is about this season, but yet again there seems to be no real stand out bet. I am going to take a couple at small stakes though at big prices. First off I have to be on Altrincham at 100/30 to beat Eastleigh. For ante-post reasons I hope Eastleigh can get the three points, but it is important not to focus your match betting based on ante-post bets. I don't think Eastleigh have really got going yet and had been a bit fortunate to pick up points thanks to late goals until they lost their last two games. To be fair they battled well with 10 men on Saturday against Gateshead, but this is a tough game for them. I stated a couple of weeks ago that Alty's away form is worth ignoring when it comes to playing at home and it paid off when they beat Cheltenham only for them to lose away again on Saturday at Wrexham. They have beaten some strong sides at home already this season and they are value to do so again. The other bet is Bromley at 9/4 to beat Boreham Wood. Wood's defence has let them down in their last couple of games and they have conceded three to Grimsby and Lincoln. Prior to that they also lost to Dover. Bromley's fortunes seem to be on the up and bar a 2-1 loss to FGR they would be unbeaten in five. Crucially they have scored in eight of their nine league games and if the home side defend like they have been then you would fancy Bromley to get at least one goal. They may need more than one to win the game, but they are more than capable of that and I think they are the better side as well. I am a bit surprised they are so short in the betting and out of the two bets I make them the Naps.
