Wimbledon poised to push Wycombe closer to the trap door
AFC Wimbledon make the short trip to Buckinghamshire to face Wycombe Wanderers for their upcoming League Two clash and Neal Ardley’s Dons should be backed to notch a rare away victory.
And should their respective games survive the inclement weather currently affecting parts of England, then York City and Chesterfield are also appealing selections.
A £10 stake on this treble returns a whopping £178.25!
The visitors put paid to then manager Gary Waddock’s tenure when defeating Wycombe 1-0 at Adams Park last season.
And while current incumbent Gareth Ainsworth might not be faced with a similar threat his side can be sucked further into a relegation battle with defeat here.
Only three home League Two victories from 11 attempts this season has been the hosts’ downfall, with only two points collected from their previous five games on their own turf.
A lack of goals has proved to be a massive handicap for the Chairboys with only four scored at home over the same period.
And while Wimbledon are hardly in spectacular form themselves, the south west London outfit are still nine points better off than at this stage last season.
They’ll be eager to do the double over Wycombe having beaten the Blues at Kingsmeadow in August and at the odds they look an enticing proposition.
Four of York’s five victories this season have come at Bootham Crescent, and against a travel-sick Dagenham and Redbridge team, taking on the Minstermen could represent a real steal.
Last term’s corresponding fixture saw York run out 3-2 winners over John Still’s Daggers who are winless in their previous six away from home, losing four in the process.
By contrast, success in front of their own fans has been the key to keeping the hosts out of too much trouble at the wrong end of the table.
The host’s vital 1-0 win over Morecambe on New Year’s Day ensured they remain three points above the relegation places, highlighting once more their reliance on picking up points in familiar surroundings.
And having also hammered league leaders Scunthorpe United 4-1 and held both Rochdale and Oxford United already this season on their own patch, Gary Mills’ side have shown they’re up for the fight when backed in North Yorkshire.
Cheltenham Town’s ascent towards the play-off places was checked by Mansfield Town last time out and visiting Chesterfield look set to further dent the Robins’ top-seven aspirations.
The Spireites have won nine of the pair’s 13 previous meetings, returning home from Gloucestershire with all three points following two of the last three encounters at Whaddon Road.
Only two defeats away from the Proact Stadium has been a major positive for Paul Cook’s promotion chasers, while Cheltenham have struggled at home with only three wins from 13 league matches played.
Marc Richards is always likely to find the back of the net at this level, and the Chesterfield hitman can be backed at odds of 5/1 to score first and add to the four strikes he’s scored in his last five games.
