19:45 Tuesday

A few midweek games to sink our teeth into on Tuesday so I’ve been scouring through the fixtures to find a little BTTS treble for us.

Burton vs MK Dons

MK Dons remain one of the best BTTS sides in England when they’re on the road. They have an incredible record of scoring in all but one game and conceding in all but one game on the road in League One this season and they come up against a Burton side who despite lingering 11th in the table have managed to find the net in all but one of their games here at The Pirelli Stadium. 

The only exception was a 0-1 loss to Charlton back in early November. The hosts come into this game unbeaten in four whilst scoring and conceding in each of their last seven in all competitions home and away. MK Dons suffered a disappointing home loss against Doncaster at the weekend and Liam Manning will be calling for a much improved performance to solidify their playoff spot when they travel to Burton this Tuesday evening.

Dover vs Eastleigh

Having been deducted points at the beginning of the season for refusing to play their games last season, Dover are pretty much down and out. Where Wayne Rooney’s Derby side have shown a little bit of fight to overturn the deficit, Dover have managed to collect four points from a possible 72 this season and are now 32 adrift at the foot of the National League. 

They may be the weakest goalscorers in the league, but at home on the South Coast, they always stand a chance of finding the net, particularly against an Eastleigh side who have the fourth worst away record of any side in the league. The two have been equally as poor defensively home and away this season and though I wouldn’t imagine this would be a glamour tie of any sorts, neither can defend and I fancy a few goals in what will be an exhibition more than a proper game.

Weymouth vs Dag & Red

Two sides who need points here for very different reasons with Weymouth currently occupying the final relegation spot and Dagenham sitting just outside of the playoffs, but with home advantage I can’t see any reason why Weymouth can’t find the net. 

Having failed to score in a 0-2 loss on the opening day of the season, they’ve since found the net in all but one home fixture, and they boast the best goalscoring record of all but Maidenhead in the bottom six.  Eight pointts adrift of safety as things stand, they desperately need to get a run going, but they face a difficult opponent here in Dagenham & Redbridge. 

No side in the National League has scored more goals this season than Dagenham’s tally of 45 goals in 24 games, but no side in the top 10 has a worse defensive record. And when you add in the fact that the two have met five times, all of which have resulted in both teams finding the net, it looks a very steady addition to our treble.
