Competition: National League
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 3/4 @ Bet 365
In what is being described as an October six-pointer, Wrexham will host a resurgent Chesterfield at the Racecourse Ground on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, picking up a much-needed Challenge Cup victory over St. Mirren’s youth outfit over the weekend, returning Wrexham boss Dean Keates will be desperate to keep up the morale in his camp. Despite being tipped as a favorite to be in the race to secure a play-off finish this season, the Welsh side hold just a one-point buffer over the drop zone and the mood around the Racecourse Ground remains incredibly fragile. A huge part of the Reds’ continued issues so far this season has come down to some glaring defensive issues. Tuesday’s hosts have mustered just a pair of clean sheets this year and no side outside of the drop zone holds a worse defensive tally.
As for the visitors, while it might have been a worrying start to the New Year for Chesterfield, they have begun to show some much-needed improvements. Putting in a season-best display and picking up a 3-1 win away at last year’s play-off finishers Flyde over the weekend, John Sheridan’s men have lost just one of their last four National League outings, and another victory in midweek will see them climb outside of the bottom-four. While they might be really starting to click in the final third, there still remains some defensive issues that need resolving. Tuesday’s guests have recorded just a single clean sheet since the 6th of April.
