CHESTER look doomed, what do make of plymouth - pompey game dragon, could be a 6 pointer for the play offs ? , pompey too hard

to predict, but they were playing better away from home earlier in the season. ?

morning GC yes chester all but gobne plymouth v portsmouth a tough call with both teams on 4.1.1 so in good form doesnt look a good betting prspective to me but plymourtths home form is very impressive , Bookiescant seperater them and neither can i si no bet for me. will watch the score with interst though.

a few fixtures to night and my systems has picked out 4 away teams who on form are inwith a shout .

Thet are in order of strength:

Blackburn 7/10
millwall 21/20
Hull 11/10
Fleetwood 2/1

Will put them in a combo of bets for some interet though nothing heavy

Bristol City, Hull, Fulham, Wigan, Millwall, 19-1 but ACCA Edged down to 14-1. Well done Forum and thanks, took your Hull, Millwall and Bristol picks or at least they motivated me to back!

Been quite a day. Think I would have banged in some doubles and trebles with the same teams but won well on the IPL with 17 off the final over needed! Decided I had enough excitement as I ate 4 Mini Rolls. Finding it hard to get excited about £25 at 14's pays out £380! Also got Blackburn Wigan double small bet but that was purely down to Forum!

I am hoping you guys did good tonight, well done!

Ipswich won 1-0 a 9/5 winner

Mansfield was 1-1 so 2.80 loser

Northampton lost at Blackpool at 6.40

I tend to bet to similar winnings  level so long shots have small stakes.

had a look at teams for the weekend and not much picking im afraid

mian bets are shrewsbury  13/10(on Friday) to beat a poor run Bradford team and AFC Fylde (7/5) to beat maidstone . Two singles and a double

Lincoln are of interest at 13/10 to win at Port Vale

Home Bankers look like Wigan, Man utd and Cheltenham

Crewe look way too big at 6/1 at Luton so will have a small interest bet on that

Crewe are to play a full team of academy graduates against Cheltenham Town today.

Ng, Pickering, Ray, Sass-Davies;
Wintle, Jones, Lowery;
Kirk, Miller, Ainley.

Sass-Davies is a young, highly-rated centre half, but this will only be his second full start. The rest of the team are regulars, but it does mean we will be leaving out Sterry (RB), Nolan (CD), Green (CM) and Bowery (CF) who have all been among our better players this season but none of them came through the academy. As the news has broken over the last 24 hours the price on Crewe has drifted from about 6/4 to 2/1 in places. Whilst I couldn't completely rule us out, after all we beat Walsall 2-0 in 2012 the last time we fielded a full academy graduate XI, but the price is a bit short. Cheltenham are a decent side, and they won't have any issues with kicking some of these lads up in the air.
