Competition: National League
Market: Notts County win
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Looking to widen their buffer in the play-off places on Friday night, Notts County will welcome Barnet to Meadow Lane when this weekend’s National League fixtures open up.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another impressive display last weekend as they landed a 2-1 win against Eastleigh on home soil, the mood in Notts County’s camp should be at a red-hot high. Sat in pole position to secure a play-off finish this season, the Magpies will know that they have another golden chance on Friday night. In fact, with a growing reputation for their free-scoring displays in the final third, Ian Burchnall’s men find themselves enjoying a six-match winning run across all formats. Managing to extend on their FA Cup adventure, Notts should also be boosted by their extended purple patch on home soil. Including a thumping 3-1 victory against Wrexham when opening the New Year, Friday’s hosts have won each of their last five straight contests at Meadow Lane, bagging over 1.5 goals in each of those home wins.
As for the visitors, while Notts County might find themselves enjoying a real purple patch, the same cannot be said for a struggling Barnet. Putting in another worrying display last weekend as they were hit with a thumping 4-1 defeat at home against Chesterfield, interim boss Dean Brennan has seen his side really come tumbling down the National League table. Despite finding what was a much-needed boost last month, it should be noted that the Oranges are now in the midst of a five-match winless run. Almost sat in fifth-tier limbo, Barnet will know that they face another tough task when they make the trip to Meadow Lane on Friday night. Hit with a 5-0 drumming on home soil when they faced off against Notts County in the reverse fixture back in August, we’re backing a similar home win for the play-off contenders here.
