Eastleigh v Chesterfield

Obviously going for the draw again here. Chesterfield may have beaten Billericay 3-1 on Tuesday night, but it could easily have been a draw as Billericay created enough to get a point. I also wouldn't read too much into the fact that they scored 3 goals as they also did that in the previous round of the FA Cup against Fylde and it didn't do much for their scoring ability in the league. Eastleigh come into this in good form and have improved after a little sticky spell after Hessenthaler left to go to Dover. They are unbeaten in 4 and that includes draws against Salford and Leyton Orient and to be fair they should have beaten Salford, but as we know Chesterfield make themselves very hard to beat conceding few and scoring few themselves and this could easily end up in another point apiece. 

Ebbsfleet v Halifax

I am also tipping up the draw in this game. Gary Hill has come in as Ebbsfleet manager, but they don't really seem to have improved and they have struggled in front of goal. Both these sides were in FA Cup action on Tuesday and the home side lost 2-0 to Cheltenham, but Halifax caused an upset when beating Morecambe 1-0. Halifax have only picked up 1 win on the road which was their first game of the season, but they have managed 4 draws including getting points at Sutton, Wrexham, Solihull and of course they drew at Morecambe in the Cup. With Ebbsfleet having been poor at home all season, with little to suggest that Hill has improved them at home, I can easily see this being a draw especially as both sides could be a bit leggy after Tuesday's games.

Havant & Waterlooville v Maidstone

This could be a tight game as well but there is no way Maidstone should be as big as they are. Their away form has been pretty decent of late as they have only lost once in their last 5 away league games. They look an improved side under the new manager and they got a very good draw at home to Wrexham last week. Havant have started picking up points as well and are unbeaten in 3 now including 2 home wins. The problem is they were against a Maidenhead side who had their keeper sent off (albeit they won 7-0) and Halifax. This game for me is tougher and their is definite value in backing the away win as I would have these two sides prices much closer together.

Solihull Moors v Salford

Salford hadn't lost in sometime prior to their defeat against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup on Wednesday night, but they have been pretty fortunate to not have lost before then. They have not been playing at their best in the whole and twice in their last 5 league games they have needed a 90th minute goal to get a point. They have also drawn against Ebbsfleet and were lucky to get past Marine in the FA Cup. They played well at Barnet and did beat Aldershot 4-0 last Saturday, but Aldershot are woeful on the road so that doesn't add up too much. Solihull are still in the play-off positions and are having a superb season. They have only lost one of their last 10 league games and have lost once at home all season. If Salford aren't at their best again then Solihull are more than good enough to punish them and are well worth a bet at the prices.

Alfreton v Farsley Celtic

Alfreton's only win in their last 9 league games came against Nuneaton last Saturday which says it all really and they have been really struggling after a good start to the season. I fancy an upset here in the FA Trophy as the away side are flying in the Evo-Stik Premier. They have only lost one of their last 10 league games and have been solid on the road. They are very much in the promotion picture and are more than good enough to get a win against their National League North hosts here.

Spennymoor v Halesowen/Truro City v Greenwich

This double is the Nap of the weekend for me. Spennymoor are having another good season in the National League North and had a good run in this competition last season. They should be more than capable of beating a Halesowen side who are really struggling at the moment in the league below. Truro have really found some form in the National League South and they really should be beating a Greenwich side who are two levels below and have only won 3 league games all season and sit in 18th place.

Eastleigh v Chesterfield 1pt draw @ 11/5 with Bet365, Skybet & William Hill

Ebbsfleet v Halifax 1pt draw @ 11/4 with Bet365

Maidstone 1pt @ 3/1 with Bet365

Solihull 1pt @ 19/10 with Bet365

Farsley Celtic 1pt @ 5/2 with BetVictor

Spennymoor/Truro City 2.5pts double at 1.16/1 with Betfred

Eastleigh vs Chesterfield (1) DNB 1.99 1u

Chesterfield missing Hines, Fortune, Carter, Evans, these four players contribute 10 goals to the team. Eastleigh on an uptrend and with same lineup last game, no key injuries, at home should win this.

Sutton United vs Maidenhead (1) -0.75 1.83 1u

Thought long and hard about this, but Maidenhead's defence is simply terrible away, even dover were able to score two against them and today are missing Clifton, Upward and Odametey, all reg mids with goals in them. Sutton should win this.

Not sure why anyone would want to do anything other than backing Chesterfield to draw at the moment. Easy way of making money and we are getting big value because the stats tell you that the draw should be much shorter when Chesterfield are involved. Another profitable afternoon and its been a pretty good move with just one day left to go.
