Enfield Town vs Farnborough – Betting Preview: Back Farnborough to kick start their season against Enfield
Having played five games fewer than every other team in the Ryman Premier Division, Farnborough’s lowly 23rd place league standing is understandable.
Manager, Spencer Day, will be looking for no more excuses, however, as his side look to kick start their campaign with a win at Enfield.
Only Needham Market separate Farnborough and Enfield in the table, and this illustrates just what a miserable start to the season Saturday’s hosts have had.
Six losses from eight games have come as a result of shipping in 13 goals and scoring a measly three. Looking ahead to Saturday’s fixture, Farnborough look a phenomenal price at 11/8 to capitalize on these frailties.
Despite losing three of four matches this season, Farnborough have consistently proved they know where the back of the net is.
The Yellows have averaged an impressive two goals per game, including a 5-1 demolition job of Lewes, a team who sit one place above Enfield.
Spencer Day’s emphasis on attacking football has allowed the likes of Harry Williams and Nathan Chambers to express their quality and terrorise opposition defences.
This could spell bad news for Enfield, who have already lost by two or more goals four times this season. A repeat of this trend on Saturday looks a huge price at 6/1 according to odds from Online Betting King.
To counter Farnborough’s attacking approach, Enfield will look to pinpoint the Yellow’s relatively weak defence.
With several injuries and suspensions in key attacking positions, however, this plan looks unlikely to prove successful. Enfield have just two home goals to their name this season, and there looks no better time for Farnborough to record a first clean sheet of the campaign. Back an away shut out at 5/4.
Farnborough to win by two or more goals – 6/1
Farnborough clean sheet – 5/4
