Fleetwood vs Shrewsbury

League One has plenty of value floating around this weekend so I've settled on the game between Fleetwood and Shrewsbury which kicks off at 3pm GMT on Saturday afternoon from Highbury Stadium. Both teams are unlikely to get sucked into a relegation battle this season now so can afford to look up. A decent run of results could turn their campaigns into potential play-off quests.

Fleetwood are in 11th place but only 3 points behind the play-off positions. Joey Barton continues to do a solid job as the head coach of the Fishermen. However, he has come under some criticism lately for the club's downturn in form. Just 1 win in their last 8 competitive games has seen them drop off the pace of the play-offs. An FA Cup run was compensating for the poor results but the 3rd Round exit due to a 2-1 loss at home to Portsmouth has eradicated that. Home form has remained stable with only 1 defeat at home in 12 league games but the concern is that it's now 4 home games across all competitions without a victory.

Shrewsbury will want to make life a bit more comfortable for themselves with the club currently in 16th place. Salop are 11 points clear of the relegation zone but no win in 4 league games is raising some eyebrows. Manager Sam Ricketts is keeping the pressure at bay with a glorious cup run that has seen them set up an FA Cup 4th Round tie at home with reigning European champions and Premier League leaders Liverpool. However, in the league, the lack of a potent finisher is damaging their performances. Shrewsbury have only scored more than 1 goal in 7 of their 35 competitive matches all season.

It is this inability to put the ball in the back of the net and the prospect of this FA Cup tie with Liverpool that could prove costly for Shrewsbury in this game. Fleetwood have remained a tough side to beat even in their bad run but I think they'll start to get back on track now with their own FA Cup run over. Even though both teams aren't in great form I feel Fleetwood have more in their locker going forward to get the win.

Crewe vs Cheltenham

The League Two games offer a lot of tempting bets this week but my focus is on the match between Crewe and Cheltenham in a 3pm GMT kick-off this Saturday afternoon at Gresty Road. It's a battle between two teams vying for automatic promotion but will the favouritism shown by the bookies and ELO ratings be enough to warrant backing the home side?

Crewe have done well so far this season with the club currently in 4th place under the management of David Artell. Alexandra had a purple patch during September and October but results have faltered ever so slightly since. They remain in the automatic promotion hunt just outside the top three on goal difference and even a potential title push isn't out of the question with league leaders Swindon just 9 points ahead. Scoring goals isn't a problem for the team but keeping clean sheets are with the club possessing the worst defensive record in the top 9 places.

Cheltenham come into this game in 3rd place and only ahead of their opponents for this game by virtue of goal difference. Former player Michael Duff is doing a great job at the Robins. Just 1 defeat in their last 11 league games has seen them climb the table. Draws seem to be quite a frequent occurrence recently with the club drawing 7 of their last 11 league matches. However, back-to-back wins at home against Oldham and Walsall with three goals scored in each game shows their attacking play is reaping rewards right now.

The odds and ELO ratings do back the home team quite convincingly. Cheltenham haven't been overly impressive away but having drawn 7 of their 13 matches on the road in the league they have clearly developed an ability to grind out results on the road. I'm not sure they have the defensive strength to keep Crewe at bay at home though. The home side should sneak this one.
