Chesterfield can extend League Two lead on New Years Day

| 30.12.2010

Port Vale may find themselves managerless and five points off the lead in league two come the end of New Years Day.

Micky Adams has been offered the vacant Sheffield United job and is likely to leave Port Vale following their match with Rotherham United on Saturday.

Currently two points off league leaders Chesterfield, Vale will want to win to keep the pressure on the Spireites, but face a Rotherham side who are unbeaten in their last five league games and are 6/5 to beat Vale.

However Vale did manage a 2-1 win in this fixture last season and they are 11/5 to beat Rotherham and 10/1 to win 2-1.

Chesterfield vs Stockport County

This should be an easy three points for the Spireites according to the League Two betting market which prices Chesterfield at 1/2 to beat Stockport.

But after going the first eight games of the season unbeaten at the B2net stadium, Chesterfield have taken just three points from a possible nine in their last three games and Stockport have the potential to provide an upset and are 11/2 to beat Chesterfield.

However County fans would settle for the draw and it is priced at 3/1.

Cheltenham Town vs Wycombe Wanderers

Cheltenham have made a recent surge into the play-off positions and this can continue with a win against Wycombe – Cheltenham are 6/4 to beat Wycombe.

Having made a slow start to the season following their relegation from League One, Wycombe are back in contention to win League Two and will be confident of winning considering their three match winning run.

But Cheltenham hammered Bradford 4-0 on Boxing Day and aren’t short of confidence themselves.

The home advantage will be crucial in this tie and Cheltenham can sneak it by winning 3-2, priced at 25/1.

A £10 treble on Rotherham, Chesterfield and Cheltenham all winning would return £82.50. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
