Anytime Notebook | 18th August 2015


ANYTIME Goalscoring genius Gavin Horsfall (@GHorsfall) gave us a 7/2 winner on Saturday. He’s lined up three more potential profit-makers from the midweek Football League card.

Hartlepool v Newport County | Tuesday 19.45

Newport found a good one in Conor Washington a few seasons back and they may just have another exciting talent on their hands in Aaron Collins (16/5 BetVictor).

There’s every chance that Terry Butcher’s young side may exceed expectations in the early part of the season and they can take plenty of positives from the 2-2 draw against Stevenage on Saturday.

Hartlepool represent another challenge for County but there was an early move for the away side here (3/1 – 9/4 in places) and that reflects the positive feeling around the project Butcher has undertaken.

Collins faces a battle for a starting berth up front but team news withstanding he looks big at the price despite Hartlepool looking for a fourth straight win.

Leyton Orient v Stevenage | Tuesday 19.45

Odds of 11/10 look invariably short in some places but there’s no doubt Jay Simpson (21/10 Coral) should have more than the one goal he’s notched so far for Orient.

In fact, if you’re keeping count of shooting opportunities in League One and Two, Simpson and Leon Clarke at Bury are way clear on their own.

Orient have started well and with Teddy Sheringham’s Stevenage looking porous in defence I make the former Hull, QPR and Millwall man a bet here.

Colchester v Oldham | Tuesday 19.45

Regular readers will know I’m a sucker for a Colchester attacker and Gavin Massey (11/4 Betfred) gets the nod ahead of The Us home tie against Oldham.

Massey regularly got ahead of Chris Porter in Tony Humes’ 4-2-3-1 and has looked likely to open his account soon enough.

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.
