Competition: National League
Market: Torquay win
Odds: 17/10 @ 888sport
With a real chance to climb to the top of the National League table in midweek, Torquay will make the trip to the Electrical Services Stadium on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while a 5-0 romp away at Dover earlier in the month might have had Aldershot believing that they had managed to turn a real corner, Danny Searle’s men have come crashing back down to earth and have shown a string of inconsistencies. Opening up the 2020/2021 campaign with back-to-back 2-1 defeats at the hands of Hartlepool and Sutton, the Hampshire outfit have continued to show a string of issues at the back. Collecting just a single National League victory so far this season and shipping a pair of goals in four of their five competitive contests, Aldershot also saw themselves come crashing out of the FA Cup over the weekend. Throwing away the lead on home soil, Tuesday’s hosts were hit with a 2-1 defeat at home against Woking and should be in for another tough test at the Electrical Services Stadium.
As for the visitors, while Aldershot might be drastically struggling to find any real signs of stability, Torquay find the mood in their camp at a real high. Desperate to get back their Football League status this time around, the Gulls managed to extend on their own FA Cup adventure thanks to a routine 2-0 victory away at Sholing and former Yeovil boss Gary Johnson finds his side in the midst of a four-match winning run across all competitions. Now with just their goal difference stopping them from leapfrogging Stockport to top spot, Torquay were last seen on National League duties picking up a 2-0 win against Dover and there is no doubt that they will be hugely confident of cashing in on their purple patch in Hampshire. Bagging over 1.5 goals in each of their last four victories, we’re backing an away victory for the high-flying Yellows in midweek.
Bet: Torquay 17/10 to beat Aldershot in Tuesday’s National League matchup @ 888sport
