Hartlepool vs Sutton – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Hartlepool have won each of their last three League Two fixtures ahead of their clash with Sutton. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Hartlepool to Win
The tide seems to be turning for Hartlepool and their manager Graeme Lee and Pools’ surprise 1-0 win over second-placed Tranmere on Tuesday evening was their third victory on the bounce in League Two. Sutton are way above their hosts in the table, though their performances have been on the slide and having failed to win any of their last four matches, they could be worth opposing against a resurgent Hartlepool.
Under 2.5 Goals
Both Hartlepool and Sutton’s recent fixtures have been low on action with under 2.5 goals landing in seven of Pools’ last eight League Two assignments and in 100% of the U’s last seven tests in the division. A mixture of stout defending and tentative attacking by both teams has contributed to those low-key contests and another game of few chances is anticipated at The Suit Direct Stadium on Saturday.
Omar Bogle to Score Anytime
January signing Omar Bogle has been an instant hit at Hartlepool, netting twice in his first four league appearances for the club since his arrival from Doncaster Rovers. The 28-year-old has the quality to shine brightly at League Two level having played further up the pyramid for the majority of his career and Bogle could make his mark again this weekend.
Hartlepool vs Sutton Match Preview: Pools hit purple patch
Hartlepool completed a hattrick of successive League Two wins for the first time this season with their impressive 1-0 victory over Tranmere in midweek and Pools have lost just two of their last 11 matches in the division overall since November. With a relatively clear injury picture, Hartlepool will back themselves to keep the good results coming this weekend and a top half finish suddenly looks a real possibility.
The pressure seems to be getting to Sutton, whose automatic promotion charge has been halted following a four-game winless streak. The U’s 2-0 reverse at Bristol Rovers on Tuesday was a real confidence-shattering outcome and Matt Gray has a job on to repair his players’ self-belief. Sutton will hope to have injured midfielder Craig Eastmond back in contention for their trip to Durham.
