Competition: National League

Market: Gateshead win

Odds: 8/11 @ 1xBet

Simply looking to make another National League statement on Wednesday night, Gateshead will welcome Aldershot to Tyneside.

Starting with the hosts, officially punching a play-off ticket earlier in the week as they secured a stellar 2-1 victory against National League champions Chesterfield, the mood in Gateshead’s camp should be at a red-hot high. Clinching a top-six finish with time to spare, the Tynesiders will be smelling the chance to make another statement here. Making a much-welcomed return to winning ways on Monday night, Rob Elliot’s men will also be excited by their remarkable record on home soil. Including a stunning 7-1 romp against Hartlepool last month, Gateshead have won all of their previous six consecutive appearances in front of their own supporters. Booking their spot in the final of this season’s FA Trophy after collecting a 2-1 victory against Macclesfield on April 6th, it should also be noted that Elliot’s side have bagged 16 goals on their six-match winning run in Tyneside.

As for the visitors, while Aldershot might still be dreaming of the chance to book their own respective play-off ticket this month, Tommy Widdrington’s men are at the heart of a National League crisis. Last seen over the weekend suffering a woeful 3-0 drumming at the hands of relegation scrappers Boreham Wood, the Hampshire-based outfit have shown a string of glaring issues over the past month. Signing off March with a 4-0 loss away at Maidenhead, Wednesday’s guests have collected just two points from any of their previous six appearances. With their nightmare rut highlighted by a 2-0 defeat against Hartlepool on April 6th, Aldershot have also failed to find any kind of clinical edge in the final third. Mustering just a single goal in any of their last four National League showdowns and facing another real challenge here, we are backing a home victory in midweek.

Bet: Gateshead 8/11 to beat Aldershot in Wednesday’s National League matchup @ 1xBet
