Peterborough United vs Stoke City: Lewis Baker to Score Last - 6/1

Bottom-placed Peterborough United hosts Stoke City at the Weston Homes Stadium this Saturday as both sides look to put an end to their recent torrid runs.

With just 22 points, Posh sit bottom of the Championship and look destined for relegation having lost four of their last five, although did hold out for a point against second-placed Bournemouth in midweek. Visitors Stoke sit mid-table in 15th, however are in decline losing three of their past five games.

After joining the Potters from Chelsea in January, midfielder Lewis Baker has been a welcomed addition to the side, scoring five times in 11 appearances.

Baker has made a habit of finding the net late on, scoring after the 88th minute three times in his last six matches, twice being the game's last scorer. With this in mind, we back the Englishman to continue his late flurry of goals, priced at 6/1 to score last.

Sunderland vs Crewe Alexandra: Ross Stewart to Score 2+ Goals - 4/1

Crewe Alexandra travels to the Stadium of Light this weekend as hosts Sunderland will look to continue their recent fine form. Alex Neil’s side is unbeaten in four and looks to be mounting a challenge for a play-off spot come the end of the season.

It’s a different story for the visitors, with David Artell’s men losing four of their past five and sitting at the foot of the table, with the league's second-worst goal difference record with -36. In scoring 64 goals, Sunderland are League One’s second-best attacking side, with forward and league top scorer Ross Stewart netting 22 times himself this campaign.

Despite coming up empty last weekend, Stewart has still scored four in five and will look to take advantage of a vulnerable Crewe defence. We back the Scot to do so, with Stewart priced at 4/1 to score 2+ goals.

Shrewsbury vs Oxford United: Matt Taylor to Score Anytime - 6/4

In-form Oxford United face a trip to Shrewsbury Town this weekend as the U’s look to continue their recent good run.

With four wins from their last five, Karl Robinson’s side will look to take all three points at the weekend and continue to hold a play-off spot as we enter the business end of the season.

The Shrews are in okay form lately, unbeaten in three with two draws and a win, and with 39 points look clear of a relegation battle barring any sudden meltdowns. Despite keeping a clean sheet in their last two, the hosts may struggle this week against an Oxford side that has scored 16 times in their past five, with club scorer Matt Taylor hitting four in this time.

Given Oxford’s recent results and Taylor’s goal-scoring prowess, we back the Englishman to tame the Shrews this week, priced at 6/4 to score anytime.

Carlisle United vs Northampton Town: Omari Patrick to Score First - 5/1

Carlisle United plays host to Northampton Town this weekend as the home side will look to continue their recent good form. The hosts have won three on the bounce against Oldham Athletic, Rochdale, and Leyton Orient and may fancy their chances to take something from second-placed Northampton.

Jon Brady’s side are in decent form, with two wins, two draws, and a loss in their past five, however have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last three outings. For the hosts, forward Omari Patrick has been clinical since arriving in January, scoring in his last three games, two of which saw him become the first name on the scoresheet.

Given Patrick’s recent form and Northampton’s poor defence of late, we back the Englishman to strike again this week, priced at 5/1 to score first.
