GAVIN HORSFALL(@GHorsfall) picks out four Football League goalscorers to follow on Saturday.

Wigan v Chesterfield | Saturday 15.00

Five in three games for Chesterfield striker Lee Novak (16/5 Paddy Power) as Danny Wilson's new look Spirietes head to Wigan with their hosts on a run of one clean sheet in seven.

Three goals in the last 10 minutes saw Wigan come back from 2-0 down to beat Saturday's opponents back in September.

AFC Wimbledon v Mansfield | Saturday 15.00

It was a pretty unspectacular start for life at Wimbledon for Lyle Taylor (19/10 Ladbrokes) but an enforced spell on the sidelines following a three-game ban for a red card at Mansfield could just have been the catalyst for the 25-year old to start producing.

Nine goals in 17 games later, Tyle won't be short for extra motivation as Wimbledon host the return fixture with the Stags this weekend.

Shrewsbury v Barnsley | Saturday 15.00

Manchester United Academy games aren't really on my watch-list but every chance Barnsley have found good one in Ashley Fletcher (23/10 Stan James) who joins The Tykes on a month's loan.

He came off the bench to score the equaliser in Saturday's JPT draw against Fleetwood. In the hope that he hasn't been bought in to sit on the bench probably worth gambling he gets more than a run-out against Shrewsbury this weekend.

Wolves v Cardiff | Saturday 15.00

If we're still looking for one to fill a short-price four-fold then how about Wolves' Michal Zyro (10/3 Bet365) who came to the Black Country playing as a wide option in a 4-3-3 at Legia Warsaw but who filled the boots left by Benik Afobe up-front with 2 in his home debut against Fulham in midweek.

Six shots on-goal I made it for the rangy 23-year-old. Fair enough price, I thought, against Cardiff.

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.
