Good Friday serves up a full Football League card of fixtures as teams jockey for position in search of promotion and trying to stave off relegation across the three divisions.

Just one defeat this calendar year makes Nottingham Forest the form team in the Championship and they're still in the hunt for an automatic promotions spot back to the Premiership.

They've won a remarkable 33 points from the last 42 available to rise to fourth in the table and they find themselves just six points off second place with seven games to play. Today's visit to Luton town gives them the chance to put some distance between themselves and one of their challengers.

The Hatters themselves are bang in the mix for one of those top six spots but defeat today would se them fall five points behind Forest having played two games more so it's pretty much must-win for them. But defeat to Huddersfield on Monday night made it three without a win and Forest can make it four with a win at Kenilworth Road today.

It's 6/4 on the away win and that looks decent value for a side who have won five on the bounce already.

That Huddersfield win over Luton boosted their promotion chances and they look a good bet at even money against a QPR side that's lost their five in a row and won only one in their last eight.

Sunderland's home form could be the key to their promotion chances. They boast the third best home record in League One and are 3/4 to build on that today at home to Shrewsbury. Add them to Leyton Orient for a home win double at just over 6/4. The O's host Scunthorpe who looked doomed in League Two.

    Good morning guys
    I am staying in the English non league today with a couple of teams in the National League North to make up a double. Both my picks are fighting to become the league champions and snatch the automatic promotion that comes with it.

    First up is Guiseley v Gateshead.
    I have followed Gateshead all season, they are a full time outfit and I think their fitness should bring them a win at a Guiseley team who currently prop the table up.

    Next up is Leamington v Brackley.
    Brackley are top this morning and any win will keep them at least 1 point clear of everyone else. I expect them to grind out a win against a Leamington side who should have enough points to see out the season and stay in the division.

    Gateshead and Brackley both to win pays 1.3/1 on bet365

    Good luck today and I hope you all have a good Easter.

    🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿Wrexham vs Solihull Moors 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

    🔘Bet 1: Wrexham 2+ goals: 10/11 (Hills)
    💰5pts NAP ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    🔘Bet 2: over 1.5 match goals double in Wrexham and Stockport games: 9/10 (Hills)
    💰3pts ⭐️⭐️⭐️

    🔘Bet 3: Wrexham 2+ goals/Stockport 2+ goals double: 3.4/1 (Hills)
    💰1.5pts Longshot ⭐️⭐️

    Wrexham are absolutely flying in the National league. Their big money signings are starting to gel and they’re scoring goals for fun right now. Mullin should be playing at a much higher level; he’s seemingly scoring every game now and will hopefully carry on today.

    Wrexham have scored an incredible 20 goals in their last 5 matches. That’s an average of 4 per game. Not all of those games were against fodder either. They’ve stuck 2 past runaway leaders Stockport and 3 past Halifax.

    Wrexham have score 2+ in 11 of their last 12 matches and in all of their last 9 home games. In those 9 games they’ve hit: 3,6,2,6,3,4,2,4,3.

    I nearly had Stockport 2+ goals as the NAP but went for Wrexham instead as I prefer betting on teams playing home. So I’ve added Stockport in to a 2+ goals double with Wrexham at a very generous 3.4/1 long shot.

    Stockport are also absolutely flying. They’ve hit 2+ goals in their last 6 league games, in 7 away games on the bounce and in 13 of their last 16 games.

    Good luck all.

    Spurs are scoring goals for fun at the minute and know a win here will take them one step closer to Champions league football.Man United entertain Norwich and can the hosts sink to new depths,Man Utd are 1/4 at home but who in their right mind would take them on at that price come on bookies behave.Norwich are fighting for their lives so we have a team that is playing for something and a team that basically thrown the towel in,small stakes on Norwich to get something from the game.Word is Paul Pogba has been offered 500,000 per week to sign a new deal and the rest of the players are unhappy.City v Liverpool do battle once again and City will be missing De Bruyne and Walker for this game both big losses.Liverpool made several changes midweek so will be more rested.City had a grueller midweek v Atletico so i wouldn’t put anyone off taken the Reds to prevail in a game where we should see goals again.
    Best of luck

    Afternoon gents,

    No joy on the card picks last night – low stakes stuff so not too much damage done – well done all with winners!

    I’m fancying Forest in the early KO – they are a side in inspired form taking on a Hatters outfit who have been kiboshed by injuries of late which has slowed their momentum.

    Goals in general look a decent price and, with both sides likely to chip in, it may be worth exploiting some of those markets for a bit of value:

    LUTON TOWN VS. NOTTINGHAM FOREST
    (12.30pm)

    FOREST OVER 1.5 TEAM GOALS
    (13/8, unibet) NAP ⭐️⭐️⭐️

    OVER 3.5 MATCH GOALS
    (16/5, betvictor) NB ⭐️⭐️

    OVER 4.5 MATCH GOALS
    (7/1, bet365) LONGSHOT ⭐️

    Best of luck!

    Macca – Your suggesting Norwich to get atleast 1 point and maybe even a win ? I can see where your coming from mate, but surely Man Utd to win and OVER 1.5 Man Utd team goals is the way to go. Will be an interesting game to say the least.

    9 out the last 10 meetings have seen over 2.5 goals and just 3 points difference between Sociedad and Atletico who sit fourth for a champions league spot Betis are 1 point behind so all to play for,both sides should have a go which should lead us to goals.

    I’m not sure how Wrexham didn’t score at least 2 today but that’s football. They had chance after chance.

    NB pulls back a bit of cash but a slight loss on the day.

    Not amazing fixtures all bank holiday if I’m honest so will be being extra careful with bets.

    After bombing out earlier on with the lunchtime picks, I’ll risk a shot at redemption in the form of this Peruvian Primera offering…

    UTC CAJAMARCA VS. ACADEMIA CANTOLAO
    (9.30pm)

    Bookies have the hosts as hot favourites here against the bottom side and I can see why – however, they are more than susceptible at the back with Catolao knocking two past them not too many months back.

    I think it’s a fair proce for both to score and think there could be a few as both teams fight for the points at the wrong end of the table:

    BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
    (1/1, bet365) ⭐️⭐️⭐️

    BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE & OVER 2.5 GOALS
    (6/4, bet365) ⭐️⭐️

    BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE BOTH HALVES
    (20/1, bet365) ⭐️

    Best of luck and well done all with winners today!
