Tip Reasoning

  • None of Salford’s last six league games have seen over 2.5 goals scored.
  • Port Vale have conceded just eight goals in their 10 home league games, a record bettered by just four teams in the division.
  • Salford and Port Vale boast the fourth and sixth best defensive records in League Two, respectively.

Solid rearguards can keep goal tally down

Port Vale’s challenge for promotion from the fourth tier has not only been built upon the third-strongest attacking record in the division, but on a solid defence, especially at home.

Only five League Two teams have conceded fewer than the Staffordshire club this team overall, and they have only seen their defence breached eight times in 10 outings at Vale Park this term.

Their Boxing Day visitors Salford, despite sitting firmly in mid-table, boast an even more miserly defensive record, shipping 21 goals in their 21 league games, a record bettered only by three of the top five sides in the league. None of Salford’s last six outings, meanwhile, have featured over 2.5 match goals.

Port Vale to edge low-scoring affair?

Salford City have won just two of their nine away league games, giving them the third-worst travelling record in the division. As a result, backing the promotion-chasing hosts, who have lost just twice at home this season, to earn a narrow 1-0 win, looks a decent correct score prediction.

For our main tip, however, considering the defensive solidity of both sides, we’re backing under 2.5 goals to be scored in what should be a tight affair at Vale Park.
