The Conference is often a hotbed of intense drama, and we’re predicting another afternoon of intense action from England’s fifth tier on Saturday. As a result all three of our over 2.5 match goals selections come from the same division.
We’re not fussed which teams win. All we’re looking for is three goals in each of the following matches, and we’ll be picking up a cool £48 profit from a simple £10 treble. Easy.
Lincoln City v Woking
Garry Hill’s Cardinals have been in awful form since the turn of the year, but they have at least provided fans with plenty of entertainment. Six of their last eight outings have ended with a minimum of three goals, with the other two ending in 1-1 draws. In truth, we have no reason to think this trend will end at Sincil Bank.
The Imps have been equally fun to watch, particularly at home where they boast 35 goals in 22 games. They have additionally shipped 22 in the process, but will be confident about picking up three points even if they do concede.
A home win with Woking on the scoresheet would suit us just fine. With the likes of John Goddard, Joe Quigley, Matt Rhead and Jack Muldoon on the pitch, we have no reason to think this can’t happen.
Woking clinched a 3-1 win in the reverse clash, and we wouldn’t be at all surprised if we see Lincoln avenge it with a 3-1 win of their own.
Torquay United v Barrow
A highly improved Torquay have won three of their last four matches via a 2-0 scoreline. This time out, though, we’re expecting at least three goals as Kevin Nicholson’s men welcome Barrow to Plainmoor.
That’s partly because the visitors have leaked a massive 43 goals on the road this term. With the hosts ending the season in such rampant form, we’d fancy them to at least match the two goals they’ve so often scored in recent times.
Barrow aren’t a bad outfit by any means, though, and will be looking to 21-goal man Andy Cook for further inspiration here. Last week’s blank at Kidderminster was the away side’s first in nine outings, and they should have a great chance of finding a return to the scoresheet against a home side that’s leaked 31 on their own turf.
The visitors hit four in the reverse clash, but will expect a much tougher test here. We’ll be backing over 2.5 match goals with confidence.
Wrexham v Braintree Town
No team in the Conference has scored more home goals than Wrexham this term, and the Red Dragons will need all of that attacking quality on Saturday as they welcome Braintree to the Racecourse.
Quite frankly, anything other than a win will end their slim hopes of promotion. That will force Gar Mills’s men into attack, and that could be fantastic news for this selection. The firepower of Wesley York and Conner Jennings should give the hosts ample confidence; their main problem will be keeping the Brains at bay.
Danny Cowley’s visitors have hit 29 away goals this term, including three at Gateshead last weekend. They currently hold the final play-off spot too and will be equally eager to win, particularly with the Dragons, along with Eastleigh, breathing down their necks.
We wouldn’t want to predict a winner, but we hope to see goals from the non-league game of the day. At least three of them would be lovely.
