Silk­men at threes to land cov­eted play-off slot

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

MACCLESFIELD still have a chance of mak­ing the play-offs fol­low­ing the tri­umph over Dart­ford but their fate isn’t in their own hands.

The Silk­men, now 3/1 with BetVic­tor to end up in the top five, must de­feat Torquay and hope for a slip-up from ei­ther For­est Green or Eastleigh if they are to ex­tend a cam­paign that at once stage had promised so much.

Lad­brokes price John Askey’s men at 11/10 to keep up their side of the bar­gain by get­ting the bet­ter of the Gulls, who are 13/5 chances via Stan James and Wil­liam Hill rate the pair at 11/4 to share the spoils, an out­come that’s no good for Town due to their in­fe­rior goal dif­fer­ence.

They’ll have to go for it then and a match tally of three or more goals there­fore catches they eye at 19/20 (bet365).

Those are 8/1 cour­tesy of Paddy Power to be shared 2-1 in Macclesfield’s favour and Win­ quote odds of 13/5 about any away tri­umph by a one goal mar­gin at Plain­moor, where bet­way chalk the Silk­men up at 4/1 to pre­vail de­spite a level first pe­riod.

The clash mean­while, is likely to see both teams find the net (8/11, Sky­bet) and it’s 8/13 at Stan James for Town to notch first.

In the other two cru­cial games, BetVic­tor go 15/2 about Eastleigh go­ing down at home to Kid­der­min­ster and bet365 rate Dover at 11/2 to stun For­est Green, although a draw (3/1, Stan James) in that one would still leave the door ajar for Askey’s team.
