League Two play-offs: The three best bets for Fleetwood v York
Just 180 minutes stand between Fleetwood Town and a sixth promotion in a decade, with the nouveau riche north-westerners 1-0 up after the away leg of their League Two play-off semi-final against York.
They’re 1/1 to book a place at Wembley by winning at Highbury Stadium, with the visitors 14/5 and the draw 23/10, but we’ve had a dig down into the facts to bring you a trio of tidy tips ahead of this televised clash.
Matty Blair grabbed his second Fleetwood opener in nine days on his old York hunting ground and can be backed to bring up the treble at juicy 14/1 odds, but the winger hasn’t notched in his last 12 games in front of the Cod Army stretching back to September.
Sarcevic – whose blocked effort at Bootham Crescent came off two defenders before Blair poked home – finished the campaign as his side’s top marksman and netted six times over the last 10 regular-season fixtures, with half of those strikes opening the scoring.
Prior to the first leg of this tie, four of Fleetwood’s last six outings saw both teams bag and the last time the hosts failed to trouble the scoresheet came eight games ago against Rochdale.
The rearranged Bootham Crescent clash was the first in six that Nigel Worthington’s side failed to register in and after putting a couple past Fleetwood at Highbury in a 2-1 February win, the Minstermen will be confident of finding the goal that keeps their Wembley dream alive.
Recent League Two play-off semi-final second legs have been palpably open affairs, with three of the last four such fixtures producing over 2.5 goals.
That eventuality can be backed at 13/10 on the Fylde coast, but with two of the aforementioned matches reaching the four-goal mark, 10/3 on the same again here screams value.
