BEN'S BETS - SATURDAY 6TH SEPTEMBER

5 September 2014

International week may mean that all the Premier League and Championship clubs get chance to take the a few days off, the poor souls in Leagues One and Two are still out and about with their usual fixture schedule.

Sky Bet might have one eye on the England game on Monday, but they haven’t forgotten about the real stuff and so, neither shall we.

A midweek treble came close again and with the top tier of the football league out of action, we just have two teams to focus on for a Ben’s Bet double.

Sign up for SkyBet HERE – make sure to add Yeovil Town as your chosen club in the Transfer Fund Promotion.

Firstly, we’re looking at League One, Fleetwood Town travel to Oldham and despite the form of the sides, go into the game as underdogs.

Oldham have won their last game out and did strengthen on transfer deadline day, however Fleetwood are second in the table, as yet, unbeaten in the league and have Jamie Proctor, a striker bang in form.

I think this will be close, maybe just the one goal in it, but with Fleetwood able to top the table by the end of the weekend, I’m going for an away win.

League Two has a whole host of games that look like they could be close fought affairs.

Picking three, four or five correct from the fixture list looks difficult, luckily, we’re only after one.

My one, comes from the North West Derby between Accrington and Tranmere.

Rovers have added Rochdale forward George Donnelly and Peter Brezovan as an extra goalkeeping option and both could add strength in depth.

Stanley on the other hand have found themselves at the bottom end of the table early on and with no league wins in the bag it could be a long hard season.


Tranmere won their last away game and the distance between the sides could see a sizable away following boost the support.

Tranmere are slight favourites but not as heavily as could be, so they still represent value.

Despite only picking two selections, there is still a tempting combined odds of just over 6/1.
A £5 double returns £36.40

Yeovil Special
The Glovers make a long trip to play cup specialists Bradford City this Saturday and the home side are reasonably heavy favourites.

The Bantams are 11/10, Yeovil at 12/5 and the draw is available at 12/5.

Yeovil are unbeaten in three league games, however they do have trouble keeping a clean sheet.

So, there are two bets that take my fancy; consider taking ‘Score Draw’ at 10/3, or if you’re as optimistic as me, there’s the ‘both teams to score and a Yeovil win’ at 11/2.
