Competition: National League

Market: Chesterfield win

Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport

Hoping to widen their buffer at the top of the National League table on Saturday afternoon, Chesterfield will make the trip to Maidstone.

Starting with the hosts, while Maidstone might have managed to pick up back-to-back victories against Torquay and Aldershot last month, Hakan Hayrettin’s men have largely failed to keep up that momentum. Putting in another worrying display last weekend as they were hit with a routine 3-0 drumming away at Bromley, the Kent-based outfit have picked up just a single point from their last three National League matchups. With their downbeat run of form highlighted by a 4-1 drumming away at Gateshead on September 3rd, fans around the Gallagher Stadium will have a growing headache over their side’s extended struggles at the back. It should also be noted, suffering a 4-1 drumming when they last faced off against the promotion chasers back in 2019, Maidstone could be in for another tough test on Saturday afternoon.

As for the visitors, while Chesterfield might have been disappointed after settling for a lively 2-2 draw away at Yeovil last weekend, the Spireites are enjoying an extended purple patch since opening the 2022/23 campaign. Opening up their trip to Kent holding a one-point buffer at the top of the table, Paul Cook’s men are unbeaten in each of their first nine National League matchups. With the mood in their camp at a red-hot high, the Derbyshire-based outfit have also continued to shine with their free-scoring displays in the final third. On a run that is highlighted by a 3-2 victory at home against Southend earlier in the month, Chesterfield have bagged at least a pair of goals in their previous seven fifth-tier showdowns. Landing that 4-1 victory when they faced off against Maidstone back in 2019, we’re backing a similar away win here.
