NEW TO PADDY POWER NEWS?

Wednesday night sees a televised FA Cup matchup between League Two’s Salford City and League One’s Peterborough United. It’s the visitors who are in the better form of the pair with striker Jonson Clarke-Harris being on a particularly good run this season.

We’ve gone through the stats and form here and found a tasty-looking three-fold Bet Builder that’s got plenty of value in it. Let’s get into it.

Peterborough to Win

Peterborough are already favourites to advance to the next round over the 90 minutes here and they also come into the game in the better form. Posh have won three of their last five fixtures, drawing one and losing one, scoring eight and conceding four. On their recent travels they’ve won two, drawn one (losing it on penalties) and lost two, scoring nine and conceding 10. 

Salford City have won just one of their last six fixtures in all competitions, drawing two and losing three, scoring a grand total of just two goals over those six games. At the Peninsula Stadium things aren’t much better with three draws (winning one on penalties) and two losses where they scored just one goal. With the away side scoring so many on their recent travels and the hosts not scoring at home or away we can only see Peterborough getting the win here.

Both Teams to Score, No

As already illustrated with the goal-scoring stats mentioned above Salford are in the very unwanted and tricky situation of not being able to score goals of late. They have failed to score in six of their last eight home and away games and have only scored in one of their last six at the Peninsula. 

Peterborough aren’t known for their defensive abilities it must be said, they rarely go a game without conceding but against this Salford side who are low on confidence in the final third we reckon they’ll emerge with a rare clean sheet here.

Jonson Clarke-Harris to Score Anytime

Jonson Clarke-Harris has been in incredible form this season, netting 12 goals over his 18 League One appearances so far this season. He’s also scored one in three in cup competitions this season and also has six over his last 10 in a Posh shirt and three goals over his last five away games. With Salford leaking goals he should find himself on the scoresheet yet again when these too face off.
