Without any shadow of a doubt the match of the night in the National League comes from Edgely Park as Stockport who are top of the league take on Chesterfield in second. With just one automatic promotion place up for grabs both Stockport and Chesterfield do have a nice gap between them and the rest of the promotion chasing pack. A win here for either side certainly won’t decide where the National League title will end up but it will lay down a significant marker.
Stockport are flying, they have won five in a row and head into this match fresh off a comfortable 1-0 win against Dover. Stockport are certainly not showing any signs of slowing down and they will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the table with a crucial win here. Chesterfield have won their last two matches and will be doing everything they can to avoid defeat here, a win here would take Chesterfield top. Stockport are the even money favourites but their home form has been a bit patchy this year. They have the 9th best home record in the league, Chesterfield on the other hand have the second best away form in the league and at 8/11 for a draw or win that could be a great play.
Stockport to keep a clean sheet
Stockports rise to the top of the table has been in part to their defence. Stockport haven’t conceded a goal in any of their last six league games and although they come up against a formidable side who have the third best goal scoring total in the league. To make it seven clean sheets in a row Stockport are priced at 21/10. Clearly Stockport’s defence is in great working order and that could be a super bet.
Over 2.5 goals
Both of these teams have seen over 2.5 goals occur in three of their last five matches respectively and when these teams meet they have seen the over 2.5 goal mark surpassed in two of the last three. This match up sees the league’s highest scorers take on the league’s third best attack, both teams know where the back of the net is. This is a match that both teams won’t want to lose so it could be a cagey affair but with the attacking talents on display, the smart play might be betting on the over 2.5 goal mark here.
