GREG’S nap won in superb style on Friday at 11-10 as he tipped over 2.5 goals at Dijon v Creteil.
He’s got some more for Saturday and I’m pleased to see his nap as they’re in my five homes.
Plymouth v Newport
I’ve been following with interest the developments at Rodney Parade this season since their millionaire fan owner resigned in the summer. Newport’s rise from Conference to League 2 was coincided with County fan Les Scadding winning £46m on the euro millions.
He’s gone now and so appears are the good times. Finacial insecurity saw a number of players leave in the summer and results so far this seaaon have been poor.
They sit second bottom with just a solitary point and have conceded 2 or more in 4 of their 5 games this season. They visit a Plymouth side who have a had a great start winning 3 of their 4 league games and scoring goals in the process.
It’s a tough ask for former Inverness boss Terry Butcher who takes on his old Highland enemy Derek Adams. Things are bad at Newport and Plymouth should take advantage of that.
Back Plymouth (NAP)
(20-23, BetVictor, McBookie)
Motherwell v Kilmarnock
Both these sides managed a much-needed win midweek to slightly ease the pressure on their respective managers (albeit in the cup against lower league opposition). However, defeat in this match will see the losing manager’s position in question.
Both clubs are on poor runs and defensively have been a shambles. There is enough of an attacking threat from both teams to suggest goals could be on the cards.
Back over 2.5 match goals 17-20
Two other matches I’ll be on for goals
Peterborough v Gillingham over 2.5 match goals 19-20
Wimbledon v Exeter over 2.5 match goals 43-40
Also, I wanted to highlight one of my old favourites.
Newcastle v Arsenal
The Toon are at home – quite simply means a late goal. A goal to be scored after 74 mins 5-6
