Goals on agenda at Moss

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

MACCLESFIELD ham­mered cur­rent league lead­ers For­est Green 4-1 when the pair locked horns at the Moss Rose last sea­son.

De­spite this and their ex­cel­lent FA Cup re­sult at Wal­sall last weekend, the Silk­men still kick off as Coral’s 21/10 un­der­dogs to col­lect max­i­mum points when the pair go head-to-head again on Satur­day.

The vis­i­tors, many pun­ters’ pre-sea­son favourites for pro­mo­tion (they’re now even money favourites with Bet­fred to take the league ti­tle), ar­rive priced at 13/10 by Win­ner.com hav­ing se­cured a last-gasp win over Alder­shot last week af­ter be­ing pegged back to 1-1 af­ter 88 min­utes. The re­sult pro­vided a good in­di­ca­tion of the side’s in­her­ent char­ac­ter and Macclesfield can ex­pect a tough as­sign­ment.

It seems likely that goals are on the agenda, for as the match stats team at bet­ting­ex­pert.com re­mind us, the pair’s last eight league con­tests have yielded 29 goals, a stat which adds ap­peal to Match­book’s even money about the match pro­duc­ing more than 2.5 goals; Bet­way price Macclesfield at 5/4 to get the opener.

Pun­ters ex­pect­ing a con­clu­sive out­come may fancy the look of bet365’s 7/2 for the home side to en­joy a one goal mar­gin of suc­cess, al­though the stale­mate has, not sur­pris­ingly, been well sup­ported.

For ex­am­ple, in­ter­net bookie Marathon­bet post 11/5 against the match draw and Bet­fred of­fer an at­trac­tive even money about the open­ing pe­riod end­ing with hon­ours even. Book­mak­ers re­port the most pop­u­lar out­come in the cor­rect score mar­kets as a 1-1 draw, priced at 11/2 by bet365.

For­est Green have lost only two league du­els this sea­son, both of which were away from home. Sky­bet rate a Macc 1-0 win at 7/1.
