L1, L2, and Scottish Predictions > Sep 14th & 15th

Recommended Posts

Let's get this show on the road....

i find myself with a quieter week at work, so I have time to have a look at the stats above.

i fancy a BTTS acca this week,

Burton V Sunderland, Cov V Barnsley, LUTON V Bristol Rovers,, Posh V Pompey, MKD V FGR,Newport V Yeovil, Swindon V Bury

Looking at the ratings, the teams who seem to have a clear advantage this week are Charlton, Barnsley, Accy Stan, Giils, Donny Rovers,Colchester, Creepy Crawley, Yeovil, Livingston, Hearts and Rangers.

Gillingham are catching my eye this week away to Rochdale.

They are currently 4.5 to win, & 2.0 on the DC/X2

Its a case of 14th V 15th in this mid table League 1 encounter, with Rochdale 1 point above, but with a worse goal difference (4 goals worse)

Gillingham have a superior ratings over Rochdale, so this suggests they must be putting the performances in, but not getting results. In fact of their last 5 match sequence LLLDL, they have played 3 of the top 4, conceededing 8 in two of those matches (Pompey (A) being a EFL CUP game), so a tough set of fixtures for them so far.

They are not playing top 4, it's Rochdale, 1 place, 1 point, above them, with a worse goal deficit 

The other two matches in their last 5 sequence have been a 1-1 draw against Coventry & a 1-0 loss to Wombledon. Both these teams sit 1 point above the Gills, in 12th & 13th place

 (Under 2.5 goals is currently 2.0)

So taking all of this into account, Gillingham should be in with a decent shout of Winning if they can perform as the ratings suggest.

By the way, the last time I opposed Rochdale at home, Walsall came up trumps at 4.2!

@allyhibs sorry for the bad language, but are the Jambos value away at Motherwell (2.3) or Livingston at home (1.9)?

Crawley  should continue to impress under the new manager too. @1.85

@Tiffy

Hearts are now 2.50 which if you held me down and waterboarded me I might admit to being a bit of value. You'll never get me tipping that lot though, so I'd say this, Hearts aren't as good as the table suggests, they'll lose their 100% record sooner or later. If Motherwell play like they did last time out against Rangers then it could be sooner. I am of course completely unbiased.

Livingston could be a shout, their horrendous artificial pitch gives them an undoubted advantage when they're at home, just like Kilmarnock when they're at home, but I'm not sure 1.91 has any value. Maybe one for an acca.

I won't be betting on either of these games.

Plymouth vs Blackpool

The first preview of this week's games is a controversial one because I'm going against what a lot of the factors are suggesting. It's the Plymouth versus Blackpool kick-off from Home Park at 3pm on Saturday. Both sides have their problems but there's value to be had here.

Plymouth have had a torrid start to the season with three draws and four defeats from their opening 7 league games. This has left Derek Adams and his side languishing at the bottom of the League One table. It's not the start to the campaign the Pilgrims envisioned.

A summer of comings and goings at the club has meant that the new look squad has not gelled quickly. This has not only seen Plymouth score just 2 goals in their last 5 games but has also meant that they have suffered heavy defeats in the form of a 5-1 loss at home to Peterborough and a 3-0 defeat away to Portsmouth. Morale is low at the club right now. However, due to the Pilgrims starting slowly last year as well, only to be bailed out by a superb run of results after November, there is hope they can do it again. It's a dangerous game though.

Blackpool's dire situation continues. The Oyston family remain clinging onto power like desperate tyrants that are grasping at straws to stay afloat. How on earth the Football League and FA haven't stepped in because it's clear they are killing the club. Fans are staying away, the atmosphere around the place is toxic, and it seems like it's only a matter of time before the worst case scenario happens.

That being said, the players continue to do the business on the pitch. The Seasiders are 9th in League One with just one defeat in the league all season. This has come against a backdrop of continued discontent and disruption with former manager Gary Bowyer departing the club after just one game and being replaced by Terry McPhillips. McPhillips has done a great job at keeping form stable.

There are a couple of key points here that are making me want to back a Blackpool result. Blackpool have drawn all three away games 0-0 this season. They know how to keep a tight back-line on the road. They are just lacking a goal at the other end and it's only a matter of time before that happens. Could it happen against an Argyle side that conceded 5 at their place just a couple of weeks ago?

The head-to-head is also an eye-opener. Blackpool have an incredible record at Home Park. That's particularly impressive given the fact that it's a 640 mile round trip between the clubs. The Seasiders haven't lost an away game to Plymouth since 26th April, 2008. That's a record of four straight wins at Home Park. I should add that in those four games Blackpool scored 10 and conceded just 2.

I'm reluctant to back an away side in the previews but I just feel there is a siege mentality amongst the players at Blackpool right now. As the club falls apart around them they have this desire to just keep doing their business. Meanwhile, at Plymouth, the panic has yet to set in after last season's turn in form. A lot of their fans still feel it's a typical poor start. They don't seem concerned that they are bottom of the table. This naive apathy will surely filter through to the players.

Haha, thanks for that allyhibs. Just what I expected from you, lots of bitternesss towards your deadly rivals! Nice to get your thoughts though,  I've stuck them both in this week, so let's see how it goes. I am avoiding Prem & Championship games for a while. Think there may be better form in this section.

Plymouth will turn it round sooner or later @StevieDay1983, on paper it looks fairly decent, but I'll avoid this one on the results. You could be right with the unders shout though.

Yeah, I do rate Adams as a manager. I was browsing their forum earlier and it seems like the fans are split. They are either dreading the potential horror show this season or just assuming that things will turn around. As I said, it's a dangerous game. I would usually avoid a game like this too but I wanted to take a risk this week.

Colchester vs Cambridge

The focus turns to League Two for this second preview of the weekend. Colchester welcome Cambridge to the Colchester Community Stadium for this 3pm kick-off on Saturday afternoon where the home side will be looking to continue their positive start to the season and the visitors will be looking to upset the odds.

Colchester manager John McGreal is now into his third full season with the U's and so far he's ensured that the club have remained consistent. The more ambitious fans will be demanding a promotion push this year after season upon season of mid-table mediocrity. Well, that's just what could happen with McGreal guiding his side to 5th in the table with 3 wins, 3 draws, and 1 loss from their 7 league games.

It is a start to the season that has surprised a few. The club is just 4 points off the top of the table and 1 point off the automatic promotion places. The highlight has been the defensive record with just 5 goals conceded and three clean sheets kept during that period. The jury is still out regarding their season-long hopes because the highest placed side of their seven opponents so far are 12th placed Mansfield. Still, you can only beat what's in front of you.

Cambridge have been less immaculate in their seven games so far. Joe Dunne's team are sat in 19th place with just 2 wins, 1 draw, and 4 losses from their games this season. The fact that the U's have failed to score in three of their seven matches in the league is a cause for concern.

Three defeats in their last four matches is also worrying. On the plus side, they did win their last away game with a 1-0 score-line against mid-table Stevenage. It just seems that this could be a long and trying season for Cambridge. Dunne remains a divisive figure with the fans. Some point to his win ratio of 42.9% during his 14 game stint as caretaker manager of Cambridge. His critics perhaps harshly pick out the performances so far this season and his time at Colchester when he only managed a win ratio of 28.4% over two seasons. He'll be hoping to prove his former employers wrong on Saturday but I don't think he'll manage to pull the win off.

It's a difficult round of fixtures this weekend to find value (who mentioned Hearts? Nah, never heard of them) but I'll post up where my money is going today.

Hibs v Kilmarnock

Hibs haven't exactly got off to a great start this season but when you look at the players that have been missing then you can understand why. The spine of the team has been absent and it's forced Neil Lennon to play players in unfamiliar positions and it's shown in the performances so far.

Centre half Darren MacGregor comes back from injury, we're always better at the back with him there. Australian international Mark Milligan has finally got his work visa and will step into the defensive mid position where we have been severely lacking since Marvin Bartleys' injury, this will allow Stevie Mallan to play further forward where he is far more effective, carries a real goal threat from the edge of the box. Star striker Florian Kamberi comes back from injury, his non stop style never gives the defenders any peace, fantastic at holding the ball up and bringing others into play, allows Martin Boyle to go back to right wing where he is far more effective. With these 3 players back, all of a sudden we look a very good side. There's a feeling round Easter Road way that the season starts now and at odds against the home win looks a good thing to me.

Hibs @ 2.05.

Edinburgh City v Annan Athletic.

I mentioned at the start of the season that Edinburgh were much improved on last year and they've certainly got off to a good start, sitting top of the league. Last weeks win at Peterhead shows they can beat anyone in this league, if they carry that form into todays game, chances are they'll bag the 3 points.

Edinburgh City @ 2.05.
