Rotherham to beat Crewe

Despite a slight dip in performance levels in the last month, Rotherham have averaged over two points a game so far in an extremely competitive League 1. The Millers have quality and physicality in equal measure and having won 12 of their last 16 league games they should have too much for an inexperienced Crewe side who could get bullied. Rotherham have already gone to Gresty Road and won 4-2 in the EFL Trophy.

Lincoln to beat Burton

Few managers can work the loan market like Lincoln gaffer Michael Appleton and he’s once again used his contacts to bring in some really talented youngsters such as Liam Cullen and Morgan Whittaker as well as bringing a goalscoring in John Marquis who bagged on debut in the win over Plymouth last time. The Imps could be a side to follow this half of the season now and I’m keen to side with them against a Burton team who have already lost 7 times on the road this season.

Exeter to beat Hartlepool

Hartlepool make the arduous trip down to Exeter this weekend having played a competitive game against Charlton in the EFL Trophy midweek. Pools may be worse for wear and have lost the likes of Matty Daly this window. Exeter should be able to build on a couple of good wins against Walsall and Scunthorpe especially against one of the worst away sides in the EFL.

Newport to beat Barrow

Newport look the real deal this season and despite many worrying about the Exiles when Michael Flynn left they’ve arguably improved under the tutelage of James Rowberry. Only Exeter and Forest Green are creating more xG than the Welsh side and they come into this home clash on the back of 3 wins to nil in a row. Barrow on the other hand are really languishing having lost 7 of their last 10.
