Competition: National League
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 19/20 @ 888sport
In a showdown between two sides hoping to secure a Football League spot this year, Sutton United will welcome Wrexham to the Knights Community Stadium on Saturday evening.
Starting with the hosts, coming from behind in stunning fashion last weekend and managing to grab a pair of strikes in the final five minutes, the mood in Sutton’s camp should be at a real high. Picking up a 3-2 win against Bromley on home soil, the U’s find themselves sat just a single point adrift of league leaders Torquay. Only continuing on what has been a real purple patch since opening February five weeks ago, Matt Gray’s men have won each of their last five National League matchups on the spin. While the Yellows might have failed to record a clean sheet in any of their last three fifth-tier contests, it is no surprise that Sutton have gained a reputation for their clinical displays in the final third. Along with bagging a trio of strikes against Bromley last time out, it should be noted that Saturday’s hosts have scored over 1.5 goals in each of their previous five straight wins.
As for the visitors, while Wrexham might have been disappointed to have dropped points in back-to-back matchups against Aldershot and Hartlepool last month, the Reds managed to make a thumping return to winning ways last time out. Finding a real boost since their superstar buyout at the Racecourse Ground, the Red Dragons have their sights set on securing a play-off finish this season. Last seen landing a 4-1 romp against Wealdstone on home soil, Wrexham have lost just one of their last nine National League matchups, a run that stems back to the end of January. With leading marksman Kwame Thomas bagging himself a brace against Wealdstone last time out and now recording five goals in his last seven fifth-tier showdowns, we’re backing what should be another lively meeting in Surrey this weekend.
