League Two Betting Review – 22 January 2006

All three sides in the automatic promotion places busted a few coupons as not one of them could record a win.

Table-topping Wycombe 918kiss Wanderers and 15/8 favourites to win League Two were available at 5/4 to win at bottom-but-four placed Barnet. The availability to back the Chairboys at odds-against will have attracted a lot of interest but Barnet held firm to grind out a point in a goalless draw.

Carlisle United, at 10/11 looked good things to send Cheltenham Town packing until Kevin Gray put through his own net in stoppage time to gift the away side an unlikely point.

Grimsby Town, at 6/5 will have also generated a lot of support against relegation threatened Torquay United. Tony Bedeau’s equaliser two minutes from time claimed a shock result for the Seagulls and Grimsby remain second favourites at 4/1.

Fourth placed Leyton Orient made up some ground with a 2-1 victory away at Wrexham. Striker Gary Alexander took his goal tally to 13 after just three minutes and a penalty from Matt Lockwood was enough to earn his side victory at 9/5.

Northampton Town, so often the cause of many a losing betting coupon, obliged at 4/5 with a 5-0 demolition of struggling Macclesfield Town while 5/6 good things Bristol Rovers also did the business against Chester City.

Two first half goals were enough for 11/10 Notts County to see off Shrewsbury Town while Darlington recorded a 2-0 win against Oxford United at odds of 2/1.
