The WhatAcca.com EFL League Two GW7, a.k.a Game Week 7 Preview has just gone live!
Harrogate Town are riding high at the top of League Two, although the division is looking typically tight. We look ahead to Game Week 7 of the season, including Forest Green’s clash with Northampton. We’re also expecting an intriguing encounter when Salford clash with Bradford City. The WhatAcca.com team have got lots of previews and predictions for the action.
SATURDAY 11TH SEPTEMBER
Forest Green Rovers 15:00 Northampton Town
Forest Green enjoyed a flying start to the League Two season by securing four consecutive wins. Although a home reverse against Port Vale coupled with a goalless draw at Exeter has proved that they’re invincible. Northampton are going to try and make things difficult at the New Lawn. We think a low-scoring clash could be on the cards.
BEST BET: Under 2.5 Goals
Hartlepool United 15:00 Bristol Rovers
Dave Challinor was fuming after his team fired blanks at Prenton Park last weekend. And we’re surprised they’re trading at such short odds to get the better of an improving Bristol Rovers team. Joey Barton’s side recovered from a 4-1 defeat at Exeter to draw with Barrow. Before overcoming Crawley last weekend and they look a good shout.
BEST BET: Bristol Rovers Draw No Bet
Leyton Orient 15:00 Oldham Athletic
Leyton Orient look a strong bet to overcome a troubled Oldham team on Saturday. With the O’s sitting sixth in the League Two table and they recently overcame a quality Bradford City team before a 2-2 draw at Newport, with Harry Smith now scoring four goals. The Latics were beaten heavily at home to Barrow last weekend and the club could be seriously threatened by relegation this term.
BEST BET: Leyton Orient to win
Rochdale 15:00 Tranmere Rovers
Why change the habit of a season where Tranmere Rovers are concerned? The Wirral side have only scored twice and conceded twice this term. The visitors are likely to be robust at Spotland and it’s hard to see them finding the net right now. Rochdale are favourites although they’re without a victory on home soil and a low-scoring encounter looks to be the best play.
BEST BET: Under 2.5 Goals
Salford City 15:00 Bradford City
We’re surprised that Salford are favourites to win considering that they only have five points on the board from six games played. The manager’s job is starting to feel like a poisoned chalice and Gary Bowyer saw his team lose at Carlisle last weekend. We think they might score against a Bradford side who themselves are likely to create a glut of chances and somehow failed to finish off Walsall last time.
BEST BET: BTTS Yes
Walsall 15:00 Mansfield Town
A difficult game to call in the west Midlands, with Walsall having scrapped hard with ten men to land a point at Bradford. They’ll now look to climb the League Two table although scoring goals has clearly been a problem. Mansfield are going to be without suspended players for this clash and we’re leaning towards this one being all square.
BEST BET: Draw
