There is a bumper week of League 1 and League 2 action coming as both divisions have a number of midweek games taking place this week and then a full schedule on the weekend. There's no Scottish Premiership games due to the international break so all the attention is on these leagues. Take a look at the odds and ratings then tell us your bets for these matches. :ok

Oxford v Lincoln: 15 points on Scully to score at 10/3 with 365

With bets on both rugby codes already posted I'm really taking the "jack of all trades" concept for a run out tonight! As (if you'll excuse the after timing) I had a winner on a Dutch second tier game that only 2 firms were quoting I guess it's just one of those kind of days! :eyes

Peterborough vs Accrington Stanley

The League One action is full steam ahead this weekend and there were a few games that tickled my whiskers but I've decided to go back to an old faithful who generally doesn't let me down. It's Peterborough versus Accrington Stanley in a 3pm GMT kick-off on Saturday afternoon from the Weston Homes Stadium. All signs point to a solid home win so should we back it?

Peterborough come into this game in 2nd place but their recent form has been a little bit dodgy. Darren Ferguson has seen his team win just 1 of their last 6 league games but they remain 2 points inside the automatic promotion places. 3rd placed Sunderland do boast a game in hand so getting a win here is crucial if they want to maintain an advantage over the teams behind them. The Posh still possess a healthy home record this season and even though their ELO rating isn't outstanding they have still won 9, drawn 1, and lost 1 of their last 11 league matches.

Accrington Stanley find themselves in 12th place in the league table but only 3 points off the pace of the play-offs. That sums up just how closely congested the table is ahead of these fixtures. Manager John Coleman will probably be wondering what could have been this season. The 3-1 win at home to struggling Wigan last weekend was just a second win in their last 9 league games and brought to an end a losing streak of 3 league matches. Stanley's away form has fitted in with their inconsistent campaign with 6 wins, 4 draws, and 7 losses. They are also without a win on the road in the league in their last 4 away games.

It was Accrington Stanley who came away as 2-0 winners when these two clubs met earlier in the season back in September. Peterborough were a different proposition back then who probably got caught on the hop by a team they grossly underestimated. They won't make the same mistake here. It's 3 wins from the past 4 meetings for Peterborough including 3 clean sheets. I can see a similar outcome in this game.

Tranmere vs Mansfield

The focus for our League Two preview this weekend is a bit of a riskier call with Tranmere playing Mansfield in a 3pm GMT kick-off on Saturday afternoon at Prenton Park. The home side had been in a decent run of form but have started to stutter lately and they face an away team that are really seeing their form struggle as they mill around the lower mid-table positions.

Tranmere sit in 4th place in the league table and are only outside the automatic promotion places due to an inferior goal difference. Keith Hill was appointed back in November after the departure of Mike Jackson and it's been a masterstroke appointment. Hill has led the team to 14 wins, 5 draws, and 5 defeats since his arrival helping the club climb the ladder. Rovers have lost just 1 of their last 9 league matches but have won just 2 of their last 5 home matches. The fact that Tranmere have only drawn 1 of their 18 home league games so far this season shows how their games on home territory are rarely dull affairs.

Mansfield might have been flirting with promotion over recent seasons but this campaign is dying a slow death. The Stags are in 18th place and even though they're 11 points clear of relegation with most teams having between 9 and 11 games left to play the threat of going down seems unlikely. However, it'll be a disappointment for the club that they are 14 points off the pace of the play-offs so promotion looks a no go this season. Nigel Clough came in back in November and his new manager bounce appears to be wearing off with the club having only tasted victory once in their last 7 league games. The team have drawn their last 3 league matches but all were played at home. It's now win in their last 6 away league games including losing their last 4 on the road.

It seems a little bemusing that the bookies are offering such long odds on a Tranmere win given not only their solid form recently but Mansfield's awful away form. You can only assume their recent home form is heavily influencing Tranmere's price with bookies. I'm going to show some faith in their promotion hunt though and think they can take all 3 points here.
