Tip Reasoning

A few seasons ago Newport County looked dead and buried at the bottom of League Two and their relegation back to the National League looked to be a near certainty, however, County rallied under a new manager and avoided the drop and have not looked back since. It is a story which Macclesfield Town are hoping they can emulate and, although they have shown a big improvement in form of late, they will need to continue to up their game if they are to claim a vital three points against fellow strugglers Cheltenham Town.

Cheltenham Town suffered their third league loss in a row with a 2-0 defeat at Carlisle United last weekend and they now lie just two points above the drop zone and know, should they suffer defeat on Saturday, their visitors will climb above them in the table. The Robins have improved on home soil of late with all three of their home wins in the league coming in their last five home matches, but they have conceded in each of their last nine home league matches and have failed to win in their last four outings in all competitions.

Sol Campbell’s Macclesfield Town came from a goal behind last week to defeat Oldham Athletic 2-1 and claim back-to-back league victories. A come-from-behind victory is a perfect display of exactly the sort of fight which has been brought to the team since Campbell’s appointment and with the side capable of climbing out of the drop zone for the first time in a considerable amount of time with a win, they will not be short of drive this weekend.

If the visitors are to emerge victorious, then one man who is likely to have played a key role is striker Scott Wilson. The 26-year-old may only have six goals to his name this season, but with five goals in his last six outings, he looks like a good bet to find the back of the net any time against Cheltenham this weekend.

Although the hosts will be classed by many as the favourites to get the win in this fixture, we think that the momentum is firmly with the visitors at the moment. Macclesfield have a form striker to lead the line and after back-to-back wins, we think that backing them with the ‘Draw – No Bet’ clause against a side with a pretty poor home record makes perfect sense.
