Borehamwood v Sutton – Sutton Double Chance (15:00 Kick off)
Borehamwood are winless in 8 National League games going into today.
Sutton are now 13 games unbeaten in the National League prior to the game today.
Borehamwood have the third worst home record in the division having accumulated just 15 points from their 13 league games played at Meadow Park.
Sutton have the best away record in the division. They have lost just twice from their 14 away games played this season.
· The hosts currently sit 12th in the National League and their winless run has put a huge dent in their playoff hopes. They now trail 7th placed Chesterfield by 6 points going to this weekend and must pick up results and fast if they want any hopes of scraping in to the top 7.
· Wood seem to be struggling somewhat since the departure of key player Sorba Thomas to Championship side Huddersfield in January. Sorba was undoubtedly one of the best attacking players in the National League and his departure appears to have really hurt the club.
· Their lack of goals, particularly when playing at home continues to cost them. They have managed just 13 goals in 13 home games. Only Barnet have scored fewer at home in the National League this season.
· Sutton United are flying high in the National League this season, sitting comfortably at the very top of the table with a four-point lead over the team in second, Hartlepool.Not only do the U’s have a four-point lead, but also three games in hand, which could take their lead over Hartlepool to an eye-watering 13 points if they were to win them, and they are also ten points clear of third-place Torquay.
· Sutton have lost only four times in the National League so far this season, conceding just 23 times in 27 games. They look far and away the strongest team in the English fifth tier and barring something of a collapse should really seal promotion to the Football League come the end of the season.
· Their squad is stacked with experienced players who know what it takes to be successful at this level. The likes of Craig Eastmond and Rob Milsom have been there and done it and certainly have the know-how to get the job done between now and the end of the season.
Jong Ajax v Breda – Over 1.5 goals (19:00 Kick Off)
· The Eerste Divise league is renowned for goal and these two are no exception boasting prolific scoring rates. Breda are chasing promotion and currently sit 3rd, just two points off the automatic promotion places know the game tonight is very much a must-win. Jong Ajax sit 14th but as an Ajax reserve side use the league to develop their young players with promotion forbidden for the feeder team.
Jong Ajax average 3.70 goals per game (GPG) from their 30 league fixtures played this season. The 2nd highest average in the division.
Breda have seen over 1.5 goals feature in 14 successive games going in to tonight.
Jong Ajax have seen over 1.5 goals feature in 29 of their 30 league fixtures this season (97%). The best over 1.5 goals record in the division.
Breda have scored 2+ goals in 8 of their last 9 league fixtures ahead of tonight.
· The Jong teams are often some of the most entertaining to watch in the Eerste. The young players, particularly at Ajax are encouraged to play ‘total football’ and take risks on the ball which in turn very often leads to major chances at either end.
· With a squad average age of just 19.5 the youngsters are on a weekly basis competing against full grown men and of course physically they are at a supreme disadvantage and defensively there is little doubt it costs them.
· Jong Ajax haven’t kept a clean sheet in 24 straight league games, a run which stretches back to September last year, approaching 6 months since their last clean sheet!
· Promotion-cashing Breda are sure to exploit the defensive naivety of the hosts this evening and are blessed with some best attacking players in the division. They average over 2 goals scored per game this season and are an exceptional attacking outfit.
· Talented playmaker Mounir El Allouchi is flourishing in the number 10 position for his side and has been nominated for player of the third period recently such have been the quality of his performances in recent months.
· Since Christmas the Breda midfielder has 5 goals and 10 assists in 13 league apps. He is fit to start tonight and will lineup in what will be a near full-strength Breda side. Suspect, they will put Ajax to the sword numerous times tonight and could achieve the two goals we require without any assistance from the hosts!
