Bet on Bury vs Chesterfeld – Bury can regain foothold in title race

| 15.02.2011

Chesterfield’s miserable run continued with defeat to Burton Albion last Friday, and a trip to Bury is the last thing Spireites manager John Sheridan wanted to ease his side out of their slump.

Riding high in fourth place, Bury can enhance their automatic promotion credentials with a win against the league leaders on Tuesday, and considering the last three ties between the two have all been won by the home team, Bury offer plenty of value at 11/8 to beat Chesterfield.

However Bury haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last 10 matches with Chesterfield and with the thought that Bury will need two goals to win, punters should back Ryan Lowe at 9/2 to get the first goal, and over 2.5 goals at 21/20

Craig Davies and Danny Whitaker have been in sensational scoring form for the Spireites and are backable at 11/2 and 10/1 to get the first goal.

Southend United vs Wycombe Wanderers

Wycombe missed the chance to capitalise on Chesterfield’s loss on Saturday with a loss at Bradford, but Southend have won just one of the seven recent meetings between the two suggesting that Wycombe are a great price at 15/8 to beat Southend.

However the last two games between the two have ended in a 1-1 draw and backing the draw at 23/10, and the 1-1 scoreline at 11/2 would return a healthy profit for punters.

Wycombe have scored in their last 12 consecutive games so Southend will need to hit the net if they are to take anything from the game.

Rotherham United vs Accrington Stanley

Both teams are on a slide down the table but at least Rotherham still find themselves in the play-off places and they are the value at 5/6 to win at home.

Accrington Stanley are yet to win an away game this season so punters should stay away from the 7/2 for Stanley to win.

A £25 treble on Bury, Wycombe and Rotherham would return £312.75. New customers can sign up here for a free bet worth £25.
