Both Teams to Score, Tuesday, April 11

Both Teams to Score, Tuesday, April 11  Lincoln City versus Chester

Both sides have excellent defensive records, with the Imps keeping 11 clean sheets and the Seals eight in 20 respective home and away matches this season. However, Lincoln have failed to score just twice at home and Chester have failed to score just four times away, so odds of 10/11 with Sky Bet look worth chancing.

Macclesfield Town versus Maidstone United

The Silkmen have scored in 14, and conceded in 15, of their 20 home matches this season, while the Stones have scored in 13, and conceded in 16, of their away matches, so 4/6 with Sky Bet looks fair enough.

Tranmere Rovers versus Forest Green Rovers

Second placed Tranmere have kept nine clean sheets in 20 home matches and failed to score just three times so, with third placed Forest Green having failed to score in just one of their 20 away matches so far this season, 4/6 with Sky Bet will do nicely for our midweek treble.

Selections: BTTS 5-point Win Treble (4.3/1 with Sky Bet)

‘Fibresand Flutter’, Tuesday, April 4

‘Fibresand Flutter’, Tuesday, April 4  In the Betway Handicap (2.10) at Southwell on Tuesday, Big Amigo has yet to win off a mark in the seventies, but is 3-4 over course and distance and recorded a career-best effort when winning by 2½ lengths over course and distance two weeks ago. A 5lb rise in the weights makes life more difficult, but he’s 9lb better off for the neck he beat Treaty Of Rome over course and distance in January and can clock up another win under Silvestre De Sousa.

The Sunbets.co.uk Handicap (4.20) is a trappy little contest, with three of the five runners – one of whom is also making his seasonal reappearance – making their Fibresand debut and the other two taking a significant rise in class. On balance, Bold Prediction, who’s just 2lb higher in the weights than when winning at Lingfield over a year ago and has been running well on Polytrack in recent months, looks the safest play.

Selections: Southwell 2.10 Big Amigo, Southwell 4.20 Bold Prediction, 1-point Win Double
