NON-LEAGUE expert Paul Maddison (@LouthBigDog) unpicks the Bank Holiday National League action.
Luckily, after a frustrating weekend, with Wrexham conceding in the 92nd minute, we don’t have to wait too long for another round of National League games. There’s a full card this Monday.
Usually a late goal messing up your bet is bad enough – when it’s an own goal from a player who last season played for the club you support, it’s even harder to take. An odds-against shot on a bonus day off work (for most, sorry if you’re working) should ease the pain, though.
Aldershot vs Sutton | Monday 27th August, 15:00
Sutton exceeded everyone’s expectations last season by finishing 3rd and they’ve started this season equally as impressively. They’re unbeaten in six, with three wins and drawing three. All three draws came in very difficult games – one against title chasing Fylde, the other two were away trips against Harrogate and Solihull, who both have very strong home records.
Aldershot also had a better season than most expected last time out. The Shot’s looked like title contenders until the last few months of the campaign. Since February 10th they’ve won just five of 21 competitive matches. That run includes four losses in their last five matches – they beat Dagenham and Redbridge during that time, but they have just one point. Aldershot have also found the net just three times from six games so far this season.
Sutton Draw no Bet looks a cracking price here at 121/100 with Marathon.
