STAR PREVIEW Chorley v Fleetwood Town

first_imgBET NOW WITH STAR SPORTS 08000 521 321 [dropcap]A[/dropcap]nother week of international action/disruption (* delete as appropriate) and tonight lowly Chorley really do have centre stage in the world of football for their BT Sport televised clash with Fleetwood Town – AKA The Cod Army.If that match doesn’t appeal, then Glentoran v Ballymena from the Northern Irish League is the SKY alternative for the diehards and if neither float your boat you’ll have a long wait this week.  There’s NO televised action on Tuesday and just one match on Wednesday – Chester v Wrexham in the National League.Chorley and Fleetwood have never met in the Cup.  The hosts sit three leagues below Fleetwood in the football pyramid so it’s understandable to see why Fleetwood are around 8/13 with Star Sports.Whilst we have little collateral form to go on, it’s always interesting to look at current recent form to examine whether there are chances of an upset. Shame it’s not Chorley v Sunderland as I’d be ‘all in’ on Chorley Chorley made a poor start to the season but have certainly turned the corner to lie seventh in the National League North and have lost just two of their last 13 league games. They have twice netted four, against Darlington in the league and beating Boston United 4-3 in the qualifying round for the FA Cup to set up tonight’s tie.Chorley’s manager Matt Jansen said: “I can guarantee that we will more than match them for endeavor, teamwork, togetherness, effort. You name it, we will more than match them for that.“They should have more ability than us, they are three leagues above us in League One.“It’ll be an exciting night.”Fleetwood are eighth in League One and have already been knocked out of the League Cup by Carlisle. They do have a good record in the FA Cup though and have lost just one of their last six ties.Chorley v Fleetwood TownFA Cup 1st Round19:45 BT Sport 1 / BT Sport 4K UHDHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)No previous FA Cup formOver 3.5 goals looks fair enough value at around 21/10 with Star Sports. Surely Fleetwood will knock in a couple and being a Cup match the game could easily get stretched allowing later goals to flow with relative ease.There certainly were plenty of goals about over the weekend in the FA Cup. 107 goals in 36 matches (Sat/Sun) for an average of 2.97.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-100 points)BACK OVER 3.5 GOALS 5 points at 21/10 with Star SportsPROFIT/LOSS SINCE JAN 1 2017: PROFIT 38.23 pointslast_img read more
