NON-LEAGUE expert Paul Maddison (@LouthBigDog) shares his favourite fancies from the weekend’s National League action.
Woking v Sutton | Saturday 16th September 2017, 15:00
Woking host league leaders Sutton but I don’t expect the team in top spot to have it all their own way here.
Woking are very strong at home with the second best record in the National League. They have lost just three times as hosts in 16 matches, making odds-against quotes of 139/100 (Marathon) in the Draw No Bet market look like cracking value.
The visitors started the season really well but their form has got slightly worse over the last few weeks, winning just twice in their last five.
Bromley v Solihull Moors | Saturday 16th September 2017, 15:00
Bromley have been in good form on their 3G pitch this season, sitting in third in the ‘home’ table. The hosts have claimed a trio of triumphs from their last four here, scoring 11 goals.
Four of Bromley’s last five victories have seen them concede at least one goal though.
Solihull Moors are third bottom after losing four of their last five. I do fancy the Moors to score here as they’ve netted in eight of their last 10 on their travels.
Therefore, back a Bromley win and Both Teams To Score at 29/10 (Ladbrokes).
Wrexham v Guiseley | Saturday 16th September 2017, 15:00
The team I backed for promotion take on the team I backed to be relegated and I’ve not changed my mind.
After a slow start, Wrexham have picked up a bit of form, W3-D2-L0of their last 5. The basis of this success has been built from a solid defence, captained by Shaun Pearson. Only one goal in seven matches has been scored against the Welsh outfit’s backline.
Guiseley find themselves second bottom and winless in five. They’ve had the opposite trouble to Wrexham as they have really struggled to score. The visitors have notched only six league goals, with just one arriving away. And Guiseley have only found the net in two of their last nine games.
I’m expecting a comfortable home win but Wrexham are a bit short for my liking. The 39/20 (Sportingbet) for the hosts to win ‘to nil’ looks a nice price.
Woking v Sutton – Woking draw no bet (139/100 Marathon)
Bromley v Solihull Moors – Bromley to win and Both Teams To Score (29/10 Ladbrokes)
Wrexham v Guiseley – Wrexham to win ‘to nil’ (39/20 Sportingbet)
