Saturday’s clash between Stevenage and Hartlepool pits two clubs struggling for wins against each other and a share of the spoils could be the likeliest outcome as a result. Borough are winless in their last seven attempts in League Two, though they did earn a point in two of their last three assignments at home, while Hartlepool – who have yet to win on the road this term – drew each of their last two fixtures in the division. With neither club on the cusp of a reverse of fortunes, backing a draw is the best angle of approach.

Under 2.5 Goals

Bettors on the lookout for goal-laden potential might be better served elsewhere this weekend however. With just seven goals in nine fixtures this season, Stevenage are among League Two’s least potent sides, while 100% of Hartlepool’s last five league matches produced under 2.5 goals. Neither team looks particularly threatening in the final third and the under 2.5 line appeals again as a result.

Half Time Result: Draw

We’re tipping the teams to go in level at the break this weekend and a glance at their respective statistics for season provides evidence as to why. Three of Stevenage’s first four home games in League Two this term were all square at the interval, while three of Hartlepool’s first four league fixtures on the road were level after 45 minutes. Both clubs seem to do their best work in the second half, so back a draw in the half-time result market this weekend.

Stevenage vs Hartlepool: Match Preview

Stevenage Team News

Scott Cuthbert, Sacha Bastien and Charlie Carter have all been rated as doubtful for Saturday's game, while midfielder Terence Vancooten has one game to run on his three-match suspension. Stevenage are fourth from bottom in the League Two standings, though they did earn a useful point with a 0-0 draw at highflying Harrogate in their last outing.

Hartlepool Team News

Gary Liddle and top scorer Tyler Burey are expected to miss out again for Hartlepool this weekend, while David Ferguson and Gavin Holohan could also be sidelined for the visitors. After a promising start to the campaign, Hartlepool's performances have started to wilt of late and their haul of just one victory from their last five games in League Two means they are on the cusp of falling out of the playoff positions.
