No fore­gone con­clu­sion at Truro

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

ON pa­per, Satur­day’s FA Tro­phy duel be­tween Mac­cles­field and Truro City in Corn­wall has ‘away win’ writ­ten all over it – Wil­liam Hill price them at 3/1 to se­cure vic­tory.

Look a lit­tle closer, how­ever, and it’s pos­si­ble to see why this is no fore­gone con­clu­sion. Since be­ing ham­mered 6-0 by Ox­ford City in late Au­gust, Truro have lost only two of their sub­se­quent 19 matches and have moved up to sev­enth in the league ta­ble. Mac­cles­field might be Skybet’s 4/5 favourites, but shrewder pun­ters are not an­tic­i­pat­ing a walkover.

Nev­er­the­less, it a tie the Cheshire side should win and bet365’s 8/11 odds for them to open the scor­ing looks like a de­cent ‘in­sur­ance’ wa­ger; Stan James chalk 13/2 about a 1-0 vic­tory for the Silk­men.

In other mar­kets, BetVic­tor’s 5/6 for the match to yield fewer than 2.5 goals of­fers good value, while the 6/4 Lad­brokes chalk against Mac­cles­field re­tain­ing a clean sheet has proved pop­u­lar.

Else­where, Paddy Power rate the chances of Mac­cles­field win­ning with­out con­ced­ing 15/8.
