Weston-super-Mare vs Workington Prediction and Preview – 13.01.18

Workington have taken just one point from their last three England. FA Trophy matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Workington are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Weston-super-Mare should prove no easy feat either – Workington haven’t won against any England. FA Trophy leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Weston-super-Mare have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Weston-super-Mare dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the England. FA Trophy’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Weston-super-Mare are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Weston-super-Mare and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Weston-super-Mare’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Workington are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Workington took a point away from Weston-super-Mare (1-1 draw).

Notably, Weston-super-Mare’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Weston-super-Mare have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four England. FA Trophy away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Workington, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Workington getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Workington are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Weston-super-Mare hold the best away record in the England. FA Trophy (W8 D2 L1). Workington’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Weston-super-Mare’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Weston-super-Marens could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Weston-super-Mare win at 15/2 with bet365.
