Tip Reasoning

With Christmas right around the corner and a busy fixture schedule to go with it, the sides in League Two are looking for some early festive cheer this weekend as they go on the hunt for three points. Two of the sides looking to accomplish that vital victory are Port Vale and Cheltenham Town, and the two sides go head to head at Vale Park on Saturday afternoon.

Port Vale recovered from back-to-back League Two defeats in November to beat Yeovil Town and claim a 2-2 draw at Morecambe. The hosts are 15th in League Two having taken 26 points from 21 matches. They will have taken confidence from their hammering of Stoke City’s Under-21’s in the Checkatrade Trophy and the comfortable 3-0 away at Yeovil, but they will know that they have been below par for the majority of the campaign.

Cheltenham Town are just four points above the bottom two in League Two but will be Buoyed by a dramatic stoppage time penalty win over Grimsby Town last Saturday and the Robins go in search of three points once again this weekend. Conor Thomas kept his cool from the spot to clinch another vital three points at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium, a result that has pushed the club up to 21st ahead of Cambridge United. Despite their lowly position in the league, that victory over Grimsby made it three wins in four league matches and the Robins are looking to pull away from the danger zone with another positive result this weekend.

With both of these sides capable of being inconsistent, it is not advisable to go directly on the win-draw-win market for your bet on this fixture. However, given the recent improvements demonstrated by the visitors, we think that backing them with the ‘Draw – No Bet’ clause represents an excellent opportunity for a profitable return.
