Bristol Rovers return to home comforts in League Two treble

| 25.01.2014

The FA Cup may be taking centre stage this weekend but the action in League Two continues apace with a full schedule of games on offer from England’s fourth tier.

This time we’ve plumped for a trio of Bristol Rovers, Mansfield Town and Chesterfield with this particular threesome backed at odds of just over 10/1 for wins in a bet that pays out an impressive £112.50 off a £10 stake.

Those looking to take advantage of our latest weekend football offer, which gives customers money back as a free bet up to £25 if they place an acca on five or more selections and one team fails to win, should add Hartlepool and Accrington for a fivefold offering a 63/1 return.

Bristol Rovers to beat Newport County @ 6/4

The Gas may currently sit at the wrong end of the League Two table but they remain a force to be reckoned with at home.

John Ward’s team head into this fixture with Newport having won three in a row at the Memorial Stadium as part of a run that has seen them go seven games unbeaten on their own patch.

The visitors, meanwhile, have lost two of their last three and were lucky not to lose last time out against similarly lowly opposition Accrington where a stoppage time Lee Minshull equaliser spared their blushes. Expect another cutthroat display from the hosting Pirates.

Chesterfield to beat Northampton Town @ evens

Paul Cook must have been livid with his Chesterfield team after the Spireites let a 2-0 lead slip in the dying minutes against Rochdale.

But a trip to Northampton offers an opportunity at redemption, with the hosts heading into the game off the back of a miserable run which has seen them pick up one win from seven.

Home form has been a particular concern for the Cobblers, with their last two outings at Sixfields Stadium ending in timid defeats to Wycombe and York.

Chesterfield will be aiming to make it a hat-trick of losses and will be confident of achieving that, given that they have lost just three of their last 14 away day outings.

Mansfield Town to beat Wycombe Wanderers @ 5/4

Mansfield head into this game off the back of just one defeat in their last five games and with the home support behind them, the good times could be set to continue.

Their cause is helped by the woeful record of the Chairboys, who have lost three of their last four league games as part of a run of just two wins in their last 17 fixtures.

The Stags beat Wanderers earlier in the season and should be a safe bet to complete a double here.
