Back Brewers to maintain prolific form; FOOTBALL.

Byline: Steve Davies

IT'S hard to believe there won't be goals and bundles of them when Accrington Stanley and Burton Albion clash in League Two this evening, writes Steve Davies.

Stanley's home matches are averaging 3.6 goals per game this season while Burton's awaydays average 3.2 goals per game. There has to be an obvious temptation to buy total goals at 2.8 with Sporting Index but an alternative might be to sell the time of the Brewers' first goal at 58 with the same firm.

Burton haven't failed to score in an away match since November 14 - at Darlington of all places - and their average first-goal time in the subsequent nine road trips is 35.5.

Sixteen-goal Shaun Harrad seems to have improved his allround play since the experienced Steve Kabba turned up at the Pirelli Stadium on loan from Brentford and goals are flowing in their matches.

There have been 30 goals in their last six contests and they aren't going to make a dart for the play-offs by trying to play for goalless draws in away matches.

Paul Peschisolido's side like to play their football and they will carve out chances against an Accrington team who are just as open and have conceded more home goals than any other side in the division.

The Championship clash between Doncaster Rovers and Newcastle also promises goals.

Donny are a team who need to win their home matches to have any chance of squeezing into the play offs and no matter how lofty the Magpies' reputation, the Yorkshiremen will have to be brave.

This fixture also looks as though it will have a late goal or two in it and the advice is to buy the time of the final match goal at 63 with Sporting.

In-form striker Andy Carroll grabbed an equaliser in the 75th minute of Saturday's 2-2 draw at Bristol City and that kept up a lengthy sequence of late strikes in Toon tussles.

Eight of their last nine games have yielded a goal scored in the 63rd minute or later.

Recommendations Sell time of first Burton goal 1pt at 58 Sporting Index Buy time of last goal in Doncaster v Newcastle 1pt at 63 Sporting Index
