Anytime Notebook | 23rd January 2016


YOUR ONLY port of call for Football League goalscorer action is back. Gavin Horsfall (@GHorsfall) shares his Notebook selections from Saturday.

Stevenage v Barnet | Saturday 15.00

Teddy Sheringham bought in Luke Wilkinson from Luton to shore up his leaky defence this week but there’s arguably still some value in presuming Stevenage won’t suddenly start to inspire punters soon.

They welcome League Two’s worst away defence in the shape of Barnet but as Plymouth highlighted last weekend, Stevenage are vulnerable to a cross or two.

And in Bira Dembele (10/1 William Hill) the Bees have not only a threat from set-pieces but a player who also ticks the ‘former club’ box by having turned out 40-odd times for Stevenage before joining Barnet.

Portsmouth v Oxford | Saturday 15.00

No doubt Kemar Roofe grabs most headlines for Oxford these days but after watching them against Bristol Rovers on Sunday, I’m pretty sure U’s fans might point to John Lundstram (9/1) as a key factor in an excellent season so far.

If the 21-year-old does pop up on the scoresheet, it’s going to be a screamer. But he was so keen to get a shot away last week he’s undoubtedly due, forcing a couple of excellent saves from Rovers keeper Mildenhall and providing the assist for the Roofe opener.

The price reflects his record but I’ve a feeling we’re getting good value here for a player who loves a dig.

Mansfield v Luton | Saturday 15.00

Not really sure what’s going on at Luton these days but Nathan Jones has a job on his hands it seems withtThe Hatters struggling at both ends of the pitch.

Luton head to Mansfield on Saturday who’ve won 10 of their 14 games against bottom-half sides and. despite some indifferent form, do at least continue to trouble the scorer.

James Baxendale (13/2 Stan James) has looked spritely for the Stags since joining on a month’s loan from Walsall operating in behind Matt Green.

Best Bets

Stevenage v Barnet – Bira Dembele to score at anytime (10/1 William Hill)

Portsmouth v Oxford – John Lundstram to score at anytime (9/1 Stan James)

Mansfield v Luton – James Baxendale to score at anytime (13/2 Stan James)

After a misspent youth spent sneaking into Midland’s racetracks with his Dad without paying, Gavin caught the betting bug early. While the betting landscape may have changed, it’s still all about solving puzzles and although edges have got smaller, there are still profitable angles for punters lower down the football pyramid. When not watching his beloved Coventry City, he’s watching games in Leagues 1 and 2, on the lookout for goalscoring defenders, penalty taking midfielders and in-form strikers for his Anytime Notebook.
