Expect Rotherham’s title odds to shorten after victory at Stockport


Chesterfield may have stretched their lead at the top of League Two to five points with victory on Saturday, but Rotherham can respond with victory at Stockport County on Tuesday.

Rotherham are League Two’s form side having gone five games without a loss and punters should take advantage of the 4/1 available for Rotherham to win League Two before it disappears.

The Millers are 10/11 to win at Stockport’s Edgeley Road and on current form it’s difficult to find a reason for opposing them.

Stockport are on a three-match losing streak and have conceded 11 goals in that time whereas Rotherham have four wins and a draw in their last five games and have scored 11 goals.

A 2-0 win for Rotherham is priced at 7/1 and looks the pick of the correct score bets and Adam Le Fondre is always a decent bet to score having scored 16 in 21 games this season – Le Fondre is 3/1 to get the first goal.

Torquay United vs Crewe Alexandra

Crewe can cement their place in the play-off zone with a win at Torquay on Tuesday, but the last three ties between the two teams have ended in a draw and both sides may have to settle for a point.

It ended 3-3 earlier in the season when Torquay travelled to Crewe and a repeat of that scoreline is 50/1 while the draw is priced at 5/2.

Having started the season so strongly, Torquay’s inconsistency has been their downfall and if either side were to walk away with the win it would be Crewe and they are 15/8 to take the three points.

Like Rotherham, Crewe are one of League Two’s form teams with 13 points from their last 15 but the last time they beat Torquay was in the 1992/93 season.

A £10 double on Rotherham and Crewe winning would return £54.80. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
