THERE are a couple of League matches on Friday featuring two of the top teams.

Second-placed Southend face Bradford at home while third-placed Cheltenham travel to Barnet.

I'm not going to mess about with any fancy bets and simply go with a double on Southend and Cheltenham.

Paul Sturrock's Southend were beaten 3-0 by Cheltenham then rested some players as they crashed out of the FA Cup at Oldham on Tuesday.

They've now gone five games without a win but this clash against a Bradford side sitting one spot above the relegation zone and with no wins in six should put them back on track. Southend are 8-13 with Coral.

Cheltenham may be on the road and but I'm even more confident about them winning at Barnet. The away side have won six times on their travels and five in a row with 13 goals scored.

Barnet have scored just one in three games and have already lost five on their home turf. Take Cheltenham at 11-8 with Coral and sportingbet.

      Jamie, I just think they’ve had a hectic schedule with FA Cup matches plus two replays and Johnstone Paint matches. Now they’re out the cups I’m sure their form will pick up again. Having said that I expected them to edge out a really poor Bradford side
