IT’S a bit of a minefield today and Greg strongly suggests looking at team news before backing anyone to win in the JP Trophy and he wants to make it clear it’s called the Johnstone Paint trophy not the St Johnstone Paint Trophy that so many uneducated punters keep calling it.
Goals are likely to be the safest of options and Greg has some tips from a full card of SPL U-20 matches.
Ross County U-20 v Inverness U-20
When County are at home there tends to be goals in their games and that’s reflected that both teams have scored in County’s last 13 matches. They welcome Highland rivals Inverness and to say ICT don’t travel well is an understatement.
They have won just one of their last 23 away games! Was tempted to go for goals as I do often do when County are at home but I’m going to go with County to inflict more away-day blues for Inverness given they don’t lose many at home.
Back Ross County U20 6-5 (Bet365)
Greg has picked out three games for JP Trophy over 2.5 goals
Exeter v Portsmouth 5-6
Port Vale v Carlisle 4-5
Newport v Swindon 8-11
