Get your latest tips on Good Friday’s Football League action

| 22.04.2011

The Easter period means a congested weekend of games in the Football League and Good Friday marks the first of two full sets of fixtures.

With four games in the Championship, six in League One and five in League Two, there is plenty of football betting action to fulfil your Bank Holiday and there is plenty of value to be found.


Reading have only won one of the last 11 league meetings with Leeds but four of the last five have been draw so we’re tipping Leeds at 5/6 in the draw no bet market.

Nottingham Forest will be hoping to get their play-off charge back on track at home to Leicester and considering they are unbeaten in 13 home games with the Foxes, we’re tipping Forest at 6/5.

Doncaster and Crystal Palace are fighting for their lives at the bottom of the league but Palace haven’t won at Doncaster since 1960 – we’re backing Doncaster to edge it 1-0 at 7/1.

Scunthorpe will be unable to take advantage of a Palace loss when they travel to Coventry and with just one away win in the last nine meetings between the two, Coventry are the bankers at 4/5.

League One

MK Dons host Huddersfield in the biggest Friday fixture in League One and in nine fixtures between the two sides, only twice has the game produced under 2.5 goals – back over 2.5 goals at 6/5.

Peterborough have lost just three of their 13 clashes with Leyton Orient and we’re backing Posh to pile the pressure on the teams above them and win at 13/10.

League Two

Torquay’s home tie with Wycombe offers the best chance for punters to find value and the home side have won three of their last four with Wycombe so we fancy a half-time home win and full-time home win at 11/4.

Elsewhere Crewe (5/6) should have too much for Morecambe and Bury are the bankers at 1/2 to beat Lincoln.

A £10 treble on Forest, Doncaster and Torquay would return £114.90. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free football bet worth up to £30.
