Shaw Lane Aquaforce Whitby Town Prediction and Preview – 13.01.18

Whitby Town have taken just one point from their last three England. Northern Premier League matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Whitby Town 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 Shaw Lane Aquaforce should prove no easy feat either – Whitby Town haven’t won against any England. Northern Premier League leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Shaw Lane Aquaforce have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Shaw Lane Aquaforce 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. Northern Premier League’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).

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

Notably, Shaw Lane Aquaforce’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Shaw Lane Aquaforce have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four England. Northern Premier League away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Whitby Town, 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 Whitby Town getting one against them.

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