SATURDAY AFTERNOON FOOTBALL .............
DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE - ROCHDALE
Many Brentford fans, have to get a Bees namecheck in somewhere, consider Dale the best side in the division, considering that Peterborough put nine goals past us, that is quite a compliment !
They have not given up on an automatic promotion spot quite yet and are on fire, winning their last five, scoring 15 goals.
Dagenham are in danger of dropping into the bottom two, after a sequence of no wins in seven and just the one goal in six, that coming against Shrewsbury, another side in poor form. Their mid season rush of goals aside, still not sure where they came from (!), this is a very goal shy side, low on confidence, meeting a team scoring from every position on the pitch. Away win.
6 points Rochdale -1/2 ball 2.20 general quote.
MORECAMBE - CHESTERFIELD
Chesterfield have made a series of loan signings in the last month and the gamble has paid off. They have won their last two, scoring seven times and now lie two points behing Wycombe, who occupy the all important seventh place in the table. With Wanderers facing a daunting trip to MK Dons, this is a real chance to make up the gap.
Morecambe have continuing problems defensively and are looking at a new back four for next season.
5 points Chesterfield -1/2 ball 2.50 general quote.
PETERBOROUGH UNITED - STOCKPORT COUNTY
Boro are unbeaten in 18 games and are easing across the finish line, but with promotion almost within their grasp, they have started to draw a lot of matches. I see County, who are still looking at snatching third spot, as capable of causing an "upset". Quite how much of an upset that would be, is open to debate, as they are unbeaten in 9 and have won 8 of those, they have already won away at MK Dons (first) and Hereford (third), so why not the hat-trick at second placed Boro ? They look a very big price.
4 points Stockport -1/2 ball 4.0 + .... 4.33 available in places.
