Halifax Town vs Maidenhead United betting preview with odds an our tips

Maidenhead United have taken just one point from their last three England. FA Trophy matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Maidenhead United 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 Halifax Town should prove no easy feat either – Maidenhead United 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.

Halifax Town have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Halifax Town 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).

Halifax Town 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 Halifax Town 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 Halifax Town’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, Maidenhead United are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Maidenhead United took a point away from Halifax Town (1-1 draw).

Notably, Halifax Town’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Halifax Town 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 Maidenhead United, 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 Maidenhead United getting one against them.

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