Forget about working your way through a mountain of chocolates – the weekend’s tastiest treats can be found in the National League with an Easter extravaganza of football across the country.
Our friends at Marathonbet are back once again with their picks for the Good Friday games…
In the National League, Leyton Orient will be looking to add more breathing space between themselves and the relegation places as they travel to bottom of the table Guiseley.
The O’s are coming off the back of a morale-boosting 3-0 home win against Woking and will be looking to make it back-to-back victories against The Lions. Orient have shown decent form on the road of late, winning three of their last five away league games, and will look to add to the Yorkshire side’s woes.
Back Leyton Orient to beat Guiseley at 107/100 with Marathonbet.
At this stage of the season, a match-up between a team scrapping for their lives and a side firmly in the promotion hunt is always one to savour, and the Good Friday clash between Solihull Moors and Aldershot Town looks to be one of the most intriguing ties across the Easter weekend.
The Shots have been in mixed form of late and may have to settle for a draw at a Moors side that have picked up a knack for grinding out results in recent weeks.
Back Solihull Moors and Aldershot Town to draw 1-1 at 51/10 with Marathonbet.
National League North
The race for the play offs looks incredibly tight in National League North, with five sides still in with a realistic shot of snatching the last available slot currently occupied by Stockport County. One of those teams is Bradford Park Avenue who take on County this weekend at Horsfall Stadium.
Avenue ended a poor run of form and revived their play-off hopes on Monday night as a second-half brace from Frank Mulhern secured them a vital 2-1 victory against AFC Telford. They will be looking to claim another important home win this weekend to keep their season alive.
Back Bradford Park Avenue to win against Stockport County at 103/50 with Marathonbet.
National League South
There’s little doubt as to the game of the day in National League South as second place Dartford take on third place Hampton & Richmond with both teams in a reasonably rich vein of form as they look to close the gap on pacesetters Havant & Waterlooville. In the reverse fixture, these two couldn’t be split as the game finished in a 2-2 draw. Could it be another goalfest Friday?
Back over 2.5 goals in Dartford v Hampton & Richmond at 17/20 with Marathonbet.
