Competition: National League
Market: Wealdstone win
Odds: 19/20 @ 888sport
Looking to continue on what has been a real purple patch in the fifth-tier, Wealdstone will host Dover Athletic from behind closed doors on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, enjoying what has been a stunning run of form since their rocky start, Wealdstone already find themselves battling it out at the top of the National League. In their opening eight fifth-tier contests so far this year, they have recorded five wins, one draw and two defeats, scoring 16 and conceding 15 in return. Managing to collect a points tally of 16 and opening this weekend’s fixtures sat just two points adrift of league leaders Torquay, it should also be noted that Wealdstone hold the second-best attacking record in the division. As for their recent run of results, Saturday’s hosts find themselves in the midst of a five-match National league winning run. More impressive, Wealdstone have won each of their last three home fixtures on the bounce and will be confident of extending on that tally.
As for the visitors, continuing on what has been a hugely worrying run of form, Dover find themselves battling it out at the foot of the National League table and appearing to be in for a real relegation scrap. In their opening seven fifth-tier contests so far this year, they have recorded just two wins against five defeats, scoring five and conceding 17 in return. Collecting just six points out of a possible 21, they open the weekend fixtures sat down in 22nd and with their goal difference keeping them in the bottom-three. As for their recent run of results, Dover have now lost six of their last seven matchups across all formats and have also conceded over 1.5 goals in all bar one of their last eight appearances on the bounce. Given the recent gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing what should be a routine home victory on Saturday afternoon.
