Competition: National League
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport
Two sides who are one step away from booking a showdown at Wembley, Torquay will host Notts County on Saturday lunchtime in what could be another lively affair.
Starting with the hosts, after only just about missing out on an automatic Football League return this year, Torquay did gain a reputation as a stalemate specialist at the back end of the campaign. in their 42 National League matchups this season, they recorded 23 wins, 11 draws and eight defeats, scoring 68 and conceding 39 in return. Eventually ending the 2020/21 season with a points tally of 80, they finished four points adrift of champions Sutton, even if they did hold the third-best attacking return in the division. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a draw against Altrincham a fortnight ago, Torquay had to settle for a single point in each of their final four National League matchups. Despite those issues, it should be highlighted that Saturday’s hosts have bagged themselves over 1.5 goals in all bar two of their final nine appearances.
As for the visitors, booking their spot in the semi-finals after an action-packed display against Chesterfield last week, Notts County did largely impress at the back end of the campaign. In their 42 National League matchups throughout the 2020/21 campaign, they landed themselves 20 wins, 10 draws and 12 defeats, scoring 62 and conceding 41 in return. Eventually ending the year with a points tally of 70, the former Football League outfit ended the campaign sat fifth in the table and 10 points adrift of Saturday’s opponents in the final standings. As for their recent run of results, last seen landing that 3-2 win against Chesterfield on the road, Notts County have lost just one of their nine National League contests. It should be noted, bagging themselves over 1.5 goals in seven of their last nine matchups, we’re backing a similar lively affair this weekend.
