Nantwich Town fans may be excepting a comfortable victory when their 7th placed side host 19th placed Colwyn Bay, but they could just be in for a rude awakening.
Colwyn Bay start as huge 6/1 underdogs in the fixture due to some poor recent results in which the Seagulls have soared down the league table, winning just one of their last five matches. This one win, however came at Ashton United, and it has been away from home that Colwyn Bay have been playing their best football.
Ashley Hoskin’s wish to play a positive style has suited his side away from home in more open affairs, and this has been proven with four goals in just three away league games so far.
The likes of Chris Sharp and Valtar Fernandes will likely be licking their lips at the prospect of playing at Nantwich, as the hosts have one of the biggest pitches in the league, perfectly designed for all out attacking football, which will please new signing John Marsden.
Like Colwyn Bay, Nantwich love to play on the front foot, and have had both teams scoring in all of their seven league fixtures this campaign.
Their two talismanic strikers, Elliot Osborne, and Stephen Jones have already scored seven goals between them, it illustrates just what a threat the Dabbers are going forward.
However, Nantwich’s most recent 2-1 defeat at home to Buxton maintained their average of conceding at least two goals per game this season, and this alarming defensive weakness is something a fully fit Colwyn Bay side can capitalise on.
Trying to predict the outcome of this fixture is a bit of a lottery, just like the pokie machines at Pokies Palace where the outcome is generated by an online casino random number generator. For those who fancy chasing a big jackpot, this could be the flutter for you.
All things considered the best bet ahead of this game looks to be both teams to score and Colwyn Bay to win, which is available at a massive 10/1.
Both teams to score and Colwyn Bay to win – 10/1
