Cambridge United vs Stevenage

The Abbey Stadium is the host of an interesting match between Cambridge United and Stevenage on Saturday afternoon as round 27 of fourth-tier action gets underway. Cambridge are sat in 22nd and they need a win here to propel themselves away from the dreaded drop zone, whilst the visitors Stevenage need to follow up their recent 1-0 win over Newport County if they hope to progress from their current position of 11th. The hosts are the slight favourites at 6/5 with William Hill, whilst the visitors are an attractive 23/10 with Bet365 and the draw is 12/5 with Betway.

Recommended bet: Both teams to score @ 4/5 with Bet365 – BET HERE

Carlisle vs Mansfield

Carlisle square off against Mansfield on Saturday afternoon in the fourth-tier as arguably the tie of the fourth-tier weekend goes ahead at Brunton Park. The hosts are in seventh after making it five-straight wins against Morecambe on the opening day of 2019, whilst Mansfield are in third having lost just one game in their 24 matches played. The teams have met once already this term and it was Mansfield who ran out 1-0 winners in the reverse fixture, but Carlisle will be desperate to win this one on home soil. The hosts are 21/10 with William Hill, whilst the draw is 12/5 with Bet Victor and the visitors are the favourites are 5/4 with Bet365.

Recommended bet: Over 2.5 goals @ evens with William Hill – BET HERE

Colchester vs Notts County

The Colchester Community Stadium is the host of Colchester against Notts County on Saturday afternoon as yet another important match in the fourth-tier is set to go ahead in round 27 of the 2018/19 season. The hosts are in eighth after 26 matches, but a win here could see them into as high as fourth and back in contention for a spot in the automatic promotion places – whilst Notts County need their fifth win of the season here to avoid being once again cut adrift as they sit bottom of the league. The hosts are the big favourites here at 5/8 with Betfair, whilst the visitors are a huge 24/5 with William Hill to win and the draw is 29/10 with Bet Victor.

Recommended bet: Colchester to win 2-1 @ 8/1 with BetVictor – BET HERE

Crawley vs Cheltenham

Broadfield Stadium is the host this weekend as Crawley take on Cheltenham in yet another important fixture in the fourth division of English football. Crawley are in 17th having achieved 30 points from their 25 matches played, whilst Cheltenham are on point behind in 18th place and despite losing three games less than their opponents – they have two less wins and five more draws. Cheltenham are actually the more in-form side here and their price of 9/5 with Unibet is an attractive one, whilst the hosts are 3/2 with the same bookmaker and the draw is 5/2 with Betway.

Recommended bet: Cheltenham double chance @ 1/2 with Unibet – BET HERE

Macclesfield vs Swindon

Moss Rose is the host of an important match between Macclesfield and Swindon on Saturday afternoon as the hosts look to end a two-game winless streak against a Macclesfield side in the bottom two in the division. The visitors can move out of the dreaded drop zone with a win here and despite losing to Carlisle one game before their last, the rest of their form suggests they are more than equipped to get three points here. Swindon ran out 3-2 winners when the sides met in the reverse tie back in August, but the last match here saw Macclesfield win 4-0 back in 2013. The hosts are 17/10 with Unibet, whilst the visitors are 13/8 with the same bookmaker and the draw is an attractive 9/4 with William Hill.

Recommended bet:  Scott Wilson to score anytime @ 11/5 with Bet365 – BET HERE

Morecambe vs Crewe

The Globe Arena is the host of yet another League Two clash between hosts Morecambe and visitors Crewe on Saturday afternoon as the theme of important ties in the few matches being played in the fourth-tier this weekend continues into this one. The hosts are in 20th after 26 games but their small resurgence has been put to a stop and they now find themselves on a run of three games without a win. The away side lost 3-1 against Bury last time out, but back-to-back wins prior to that suggests they are still worthy of a spot higher up than their current position of 15th in the division.

Recommended bet: Under 2.5 goals @ 7/10 with Betway – BET HERE

Yeovil vs Bury

Yeovil take on Bury at Huish Park on Saturday afternoon as two sides in need of three points for contrasting reasons square off in the 27th round of action. The hosts will be looking to end a torrid run of games without a win here to avoid slipping ever closer to the dreaded drop zone – somewhere they currently find themselves just three points outside of, whilst Bury are in fourth and they know a win here could get them into the all-important automatic promotion spots here. The sides know each other well from their previous meeting this term, with the reverse fixture ending in a 1-0 win for Bury. The hosts are a huge 3/1 outsider with William Hill, whilst the visitors can be priced at evens with Unibet and the draw is 12/5 with Betfair.

Recommended bet: Bury to win and both teams to score @ 11/4 with SkyBet – BET HERE
