Wycombe vs Port Vale – Bet on Wycombe closing the gap

| 03.02.2011

It’s a big weekend in League Two in terms of the title and promotion races, and Wycombe will be ready to pounce if Chesterfield continue to drop points.

The Spireites are 4/6 to win at home to Aldershot on Saturday, but Wycombe and Rotherham can enhance their title claims at home to Port Vale and Crewe as Chesterfield look to bounce back from consecutive draws.

Wycombe Wanderers vs Port Vale

In 10 of the previous 11 matches between the two sides, the away side has scored exactly one goal which suggests Wycombe must score two to win the game – they are available at 5/6 to beat Port Vale and 7/1 to win 2-1.

The last time the two sides met at Adams Park, Wycombe secured their fourth successive home victory against Port Vale with a 4-2 win, and Vale, who are 10/3 to win, have only beaten Wycombe once at Adams Park, back in 2001.

Since Micky Adams departed for Sheffield United, Port Vale have suffered from a dramatic loss of form, and Wycombe look the home banker this weekend.

Rotherham United vs Crewe Alexandra

This is a huge match for both clubs in the automatic promotion race and a win for Crewe, they are 11/5 to beat Rotherham, would put them level on points with the Millers.

Rotherham (6/5 to beat Crewe) have lost just one of their last six matches with Crewe, but have only won one of their last six in the league and just one of their last seven home games with Crewe.

Crewe have scored exactly two goals in each of their last five games and a 2-0 win for Crewe is priced at 11/1, while Crewe’s 13-goal man Shaun Miller looks a great bet at 6/1 to be the first goalscorer.

A £25 double on Wycombe and Crewe winning would return £146.50. New customers can sign up here for a free bet worth £25.
