York v Fleetwood Town 745pm SKY TAKE TWO

first_img[dropcap]M[/dropcap]iracles do happen in football.Just ask the supporters of York FC – the ‘Minstermen’.Just a few months ago for them it was a case of All I Want For Christmas is to escape relegation…..York were third bottom of League Two at Christmas and frankly things were looking a little grim but Nigel Worthington’s team have shown the most remarkable turnaround.They have kept 10 clean sheets in their last 12 league games and now haven’t lost in 17 league games.It’s been a run of form that has propelled them into the play offs – in the end, quite easily, as they finished a full nine points clear of eighth placed Oxford. It’s amazing what winning games can do to your league position (if that’s not stating the bleeding obvious) and a lesson for all teams that hope is not lost at the Christmas halfway point of the season.York face Fleetwood Town in the first leg of their play off semi-final (LIVE SKY 7.45pm). It’s take two – as this rain was due to be played on Saturday night before the rain stopped play.It’s one win a piece in their two games this season – interestingly both wins coming away from home!HEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Max last 10 only)Feb 2014 English Two Fleetwood 1-2 YorkOct 2013 English Two York 0-2 FleetwoodDec 2012 English Two Fleetwood 0-0 YorkOct 2012 English Two York 0-2 FleetwoodApr 2012 Blue Sq York 0-1 FleetwoodAug 2011 Blue Sq Fleetwood 0-0 YorkFeb 2011 Blue Sq York 1-0 FleetwoodAug 2010 Blue Sq Fleetwood 2-1 YorkThe play offs so far have shown us to expect cagey games, particularly in the first leg matches and I think the same is on the cards for this one.As such I’m backing the draw at around 9/4.RECOMMENDED BET (scale of 1-10 points)6 points DRAW at around 9/4 with Star Sports RUNNING RETURN (MAY): LOSS 2.25 POINTSRUNNING RETURN (YEAR): LOSS 116.95 POINTSWhat’s your view?
