Competition: National League

Market: Altrincham win

Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has been a recent purple patch, Altrincham will welcome Aldershot to Moss Lane on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, making an immediate return to winning ways with a hugely impressive display earlier in the week, Altrincham should find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Eventually claiming a 1-0 win against leading promotion contenders Chesterfield at Moss Lane, they are in the midst of a real purple patch. Storming their way up the National League table, Head Coach Phil Parkinson has seen his side lose just one of their previous six outings. Smelling the chance to lay down another marker on Saturday afternoon, the Manchester-based outfit have also impressed with their recent displays in the final third. Along with a 3-0 win against Dagenham & Redbridge, they also secured back-to-back 5-0 and 4-0 victories against Eastleigh and Weymouth earlier in the month.

As for the visitors, while Altrincham might find themselves enjoying a real purple patch, the same cannot be said for a struggling Aldershot side. Last seen earlier in the week putting in a nightmare display as they were hit with a 4-0 drumming away at Torquay, Mark Molesley’s men could still be looking over their shoulder at the drop zone. Knowing that they face a tough task at Moss Lane on Saturday afternoon, the former Southend boss has seen his downbeat squad pick up just a single point from any of their previous seven outings. Along with shipping 13 goals on their four-match losing run, it should also be noted that Aldershot have also failed to record a single strike from any of their previous five contests. Given the huge recent gulf in class, we’re backing a home victory here at attractive odds.

Bet: Altrincham 1/1 to beat Aldershot in Saturday’s National League battle @ 888sport
