It’s finely poised at the Lane

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

THERE’S plenty on the line at Al­trin­cham’s Moss Lane ground on Satur­day when the home side wel­come Mac­cles­field with one team in­volved in a tus­sle to avoid rel­e­ga­tion and the other push­ing for a play-off berth.

Though Macc are in­stalled as Paddy Power’s marginal 7/5 favourites, while Al­trin­cham are of­fered at 15/8 by Bet­way to claim three points en route to what their sup­port­ers hope will be a con­tin­ued march to sur­vival.

Mac­cles­field’s stub­born de­fence was praised fol­low­ing last week­end’s goal­less draw against Wrex­ham and they’re 11/4 (Skybet) to re­tain a clean sheet again on Satur­day. Yet while mat­ters are ex­pected to be tight, few back­ers would rule out an early goal and Stan James’s 15/8 for the game’s open­ing strike to ar­rive in­side the first 15 min­utes has found favour amongst pun­ters.

The draw, of­fered at 13/5 by Wil­liam Hill, is lit­tle use to ei­ther side and while the score draw is priced at 10/3 by Lad­brokes, both teams need to win if they’re to achieve their dif­fer­ent goals.

Pun­ters who con­cur may fancy the 3/1 (Stan James) for Macc to en­joy a one-goal mar­gin of vic­tory; bolder pun­ters are more likely to be tempted by Co­ral’s 9/1 for them to win 1-0.
