Competition: National League

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport

In a real showdown from the top of the National League table on Saturday evening, Chesterfield will welcome Notts County to the Technique Stadium.

Starting with the hosts, eventually crashing out of the FA Cup earlier in the week following a 4-0 drumming against Championship high-flyers West Brom, Chesterfield should be glad to turn their attention back to fifth-tier duties here. Last seen in National League action claiming a thumping 4-1 victory at home against Scunthorpe, the Spireites should find the mood in their camp at a real high. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat just three points adrift of finding a route into the top-three, Paul Cook’s side have gained a real reputation for their lively outcomes. In fact, the Derbyshire-based outfit have witnessed their last three matchups across all formats produce 15 strikes. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, Saturday’s hosts have seen each of their previous four straight contests at the Technique Stadium finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, suffering a shock FA Trophy exit last weekend at the hands of a struggling Maidstone, Notts County will be seeking an immediate response here. However, glad to turn their attention back to National League duties on Saturday evening, Luke Williams’ men will be hoping to widen their buffer at the top of the table. In fact, the Magpies are remarkably unbeaten in each of their last 18 straight fifth-tier appearances – a run that stems all the way back to September 17th. Nevertheless, while the Nottingham-based outfit might have continued to shine in the final third, Williams’ side are seeking some much-needed stability at the back. It should be noted, the leading promotion contenders have recorded just a sole clean sheet from any of their last six matchups across all formats.

Bet: Both teams to score at Chesterfield vs Notts County 4/6 for Saturday’s National League showdown @ 888sport
