Competition: National League
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport
Already booking their Football League return, Wrexham will make the trip to Torquay on Saturday evening when they sign off their National League campaign.
Starting with the hosts, while Torquay might have managed to find some much-needed stability during the back end of their National League campaign, Gary Johnson’s men are seeking a real miracle in their bid to avoid the drop. Sat three points of adrift of both Maidenhead and York, the Gulls hold a significantly worse goal difference and will be more than aware that they face a heavyweight challenge on Saturday evening. Now seen as a landslide pick to lose their fifth-tier status this weekend, the former Yeovil boss will take little solace from his side’s recent improvements. Last seen playing out an action-packed 2-2 draw away at Altrincham, Torquay have lost just one of their last seven National League appearances – a run that stems back to a 2-1 loss against Dagenham & Redbridge on March 25th. Likewise, it should also be noted, Johnson’s side have seen each of their last four outings finish with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, ending their 15-year stay in Football League exile last week as they claimed a 3-1 romp at home against Boreham Wood, Wrexham have only continued on a famous National League romp this season. Stealing headlines across the globe and enjoying a fairytale rise since their Hollywood takeover was completed, Phil Parkinson’s side have broken a string of fifth-tier records this season. Already crowned champions and mustering 10 points from their last four National League appearances, Wrexham’s stellar end to the season was highlighted by a 3-2 victory against Notts County on April 10th. Gaining a fearsome reputation from across England’s fifth-tier for their free-scoring displays in the final third, the one-time Bolton boss has seen his high-flying squad notch a staggering 115 National League goals this season. With promotion already confirmed, we could be set for a thrilling showdown in Devon. With Wrexham seeing 10 of their last 13 away fixtures finish with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
Bet: Both teams to score at Torquay vs Wrexham 8/11 for Saturday’s National League battle @ 888sport
