While the 2nd round of the FA Cup takes place this weekend, Non-League action still continues with teams who didn't achieve their dream cup run. Read below for a tasty looking 4.40 odds double.
Two sides chasing promotion in Bromley and Rochdale face off at Hayes Lane in an intriguing National League tie.
Bromley have had an amazing start to the season and find themselves in 11th place after 22 games. Andy Woodman's side have exceeded expectations thus far after a heart-breaking playoff defeat last year. An impressive 4-1 win at Hartlepool reaffirmed the Lillywhite's ambitions, making it just one loss in their last eight league games.
Michael Cheek has started the season in a rich vein in form, scoring 10 goals so far, including three in his last two. Their home form has been a strong factor to their sublime start to the season, with only runaway leaders Chesterfield picking up more home points. Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals has landed in 6/11 (55%) of games at Hayes Lane this season.
Rochdale come into this game after three wins in a row. A shock relegation last year ended their 102-year Football League spell and the Dale struggled to adapt. However, recent form has suggested Jim McNulty is turning things around.
Rochdale games certainly haven't been short of entertainment, with their 40 goals scored and 34 conceded seen an average of over 3.3 goals per game. Kairo Mitchell has been prevalent in this goalscoring run, with the Grenada international scoring 10 goals this season, including goals in his last three stars.
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals has landed in 7/11 (64%) of Rochdale away games. It has landed in seven of the last eight games, with the exception a 3-0 win over Altrincham, a game in which the visitors missed a penalty. McNulty's side have also scored at least two goals in all of these games.
Selection: BTTS & Over 2.5 goals - 2.00
The other half of the double features Rochdale's rivals, as Oldham host Boreham Wood.
Oldham are an enigma this season. The Latics struggled for consistency in their 12th placed finish last season and they have failed to buck that trend this year. After a summer spending spree that saw them pluck players from League 1 such as James Norwood and Charlie Raglan, David Unsworth struggled to get a tune out of his expensively assembled squad and was relieved of his duties.
Promotion specialist Micky Mellon was brought in to steady the ship. Whilst there have been some notable improvement for The Latics, the issue of inconsistency is still prevalent. An impressive 4-1 away win against 2nd place Barnet in-front of the TV cameras gave much optimism to Latics fans. However, this was followed up by a 4-1 loss at home to Ebbsfleet who had only won once in 14 games. Since Mellon took the reins, Oldham games have been entertaining, averaging 3.85 goals per game.
Boreham Wood have been punching above their weight for numerous years now but just about fall short on an unlikely promotion. This year, Luke Garrard's side have struggled and hover just above the relegation zone by 2 points. Saturday's 4-2 win over Woking was much needed for The Wood, as they had gone five games without a win.
Boreham Wood's defence was usually their bright spark, but they've struggled at the back this year, having just one clean sheet in their last eight. BTTS and over 2.5 goals has landed in 7/11 away games.
