More pressure on Magpies in promotion play-off

Fifth-placed Notts County play sixth-placed Chesterfield on Saturday in the qualifying round of the National League promotion playoffs.

The winner earns the right to travel to Plainmoor to meet second-placed Torquay United in the semi-finals and be two victories away from a return to the Football League.

Notts County finished third last season and will feel that they belong at a higher level, but Ian Burchnall’s side lost some of their momentum when falling 1-0 at play-off bound Bromley last weekend.

Prior to that the Magpies had been in impressive form, winning five of their previous six league fixtures including a resounding 3-0 victory over Weymouth the last time out at Meadow Lane.

The Spireites have had a great season whatever the outcome of the playoffs and will play with less pressure than the hosts on Saturday.

James Rowe looks set to include first-choice left-back Alex Whittle after he returned from injury to play 45 minutes at Halifax last week and ex-Magpies striker Nathan Tyson is pushing for a place following his winning goal at The Shay.

With Curtis Weston and Gavin Gunning having returned to the fold recently, Chesterfield will be close to full strength for the trip to Nottinghamshire.

Both sides have racked up 18 league clean sheets apiece this season and we reckon there’s a good chance one of the teams collects another in what is bound to be a nervy affair.

So we’ll forecast the Both teams to score – No option to be profitable here and favour a narrow Spireites win in correct score betting based on how they ran out 1-0 winners at Meadow Lane earlier this year.
