BLUE SQUARE NORTH
STAFFORD RANGERS - DROYLSDEN
Four rounds to play, hosts are one point from safety with an inferior goal difference to the teams above them in the table, so let's call it two points. They looked down and out a few weeks ago, but have proved tough to beat in recent starts, losing two in seven ( a huge improvement on what went before, in a division where there is a big gulf between the top and bottom clubs. They looked to have done some reasonable loan deadline business and are probably six points, two wins from safety. They have two home starts in the next five days and then end with two road games. Next up in midweek is a visit from a club battling for the playoffs, in arguably their best form of the season and coming off a famous win. Therefore, this match against a mid table Droylsden team with nothing to play for and in bad shape, with one point from a possible twelve in April and ten goals conceded, is about as good as it is going to get at this stage of the season. Local teams Wolves and Stoke are not playing saturday, so good chance for Rangers to pick up a few more "fans" and the club have called upon the supporters to crank up the atmosphere in what they know is a massive game for the whole town.
Stafford -0.5 2.40 + .... up to 2.50 in places.
