Tip Reasoning

  • Port Vale and Sutton United have League Two’s fifth and fourth best attacking records, respectively.
  • Three of the last four games to feature the hosts contained three or more goals.
  • Four of Sutton’s last six outings, meanwhile, have contained over 2.5 goals.
  • Sutton beat Port Vale 4-3 in October’s absorbing return fixture.

Promotion rivals could entertain

Just one point and one place separates Sutton United and Port Vale in the League Two table, with the ninth-placed Valiants possessing a game in hand on their rivals. Both teams are within three points of the automatic promotion places, and two of the division’s best attacking outfits could be set to entertain when they do battle on Saturday.

Port Vale are the fifth most prolific team in League Two, scoring 55 goals in 37 outings as they chase promotion under acting manager Andy Crosby. Three of their last four matches have contained a minimum of three goals, and the Valiants’ return of 28 goals in 19 home games is bettered by just seven teams in the fourth tier.

Meanwhile, Sutton have seen over 2.5 goals scored in four of their last six games, and a return of 58 league goals this season has them chasing a second consecutive promotion after a strong campaign. However, a run of just three wins in their last 11 league games may be enough to put punters off backing the visitors against an outfit of similar standing.

Over three goals looks likely after October thriller

With Sutton in questionable form but capable of beating any side in the fourth tier on their day, punters may be advised to neglect the win market and back over 2.5 goals to be scored in Saturday’s crucial clash, particularly given Sutton won October’s thrilling return fixture 4-3.

Port Vale have, however, gone seven home games without defeat, making a 2-1 home triumph look a decent correct score prediction.
