Salford vs. Stockport Betting Tips: The Hatters to secure another away win
Stockport County will be looking to make the dream run from National League to League One in two seasons, but they have to get through Salford first in what is a small local derby for the League Two teams.
The Hatters had an opportunity to secure automatic promotion last weekend but missed out following a draw against Hartlepool, and Northampton winning their game. They come into this one as the favourites but the highest-scoring team in Salford will be just as up for this as County. We’ve got 4th place vs 7th place and it’s set to be a great semi-final!
We’ll be taking a look at the betting market for the first leg of their playoff game and picking out our two best bets for the action.
Salford vs Stockport Tips
Stockport County have been mightly impressive in the latter stages of the season and are currently on a 13-game unbeaten streak in the league, before that loss to Barrow you’d have to go back a further six games to find their last loss.
Coming into the playoffs with such great form is a massive advantage for Stockport County and with them already getting the better of Salford this season, you’d have to fancy them to do so again. In their first meeting this season Stockport took a 2-0 win at the Peninsula Stadium.
County have only lost one of their last 10 away trips in the league and have only conceded seven goals in those 10 games. On the other hand, Salford are in a rough patch at home with three losses in their last four games.
Given Stockport have already had success in this fixture this season and they have all the form behind them, they should be heading into the second leg with a lead under their belt, 6/4 looks like a very decent price for this to happen.
Will Collar has been great for Stockport County this season and has a very respectable 13 goals to his name from the centre-mid position for the Hatters so far.
The midfielder has matched the tally of his fellow striker Paddy Madden already and is the joint second-highest scorer for County this season.
Will Collar scored in their 2-0 win at Salford earlier in the season and we’re backing him to score again at 9/2 with Bet365.
Stockport have proved they are more than capable of beating Salford already and they could be on the scoresheet more than once if previous results are anything to go off.
For those brave enough to play the double for both of these you can get the double at 8/1 with Bet365 using their Bet Builder option! All that’s left to do now is hope for a winning bet and if you are following along, make sure to gamble responsibly.
