Fleetwood Town notched a fourth straight league win to go 3rd in League Two and are now joint favourites for promotion along with Rotherham United after the bookies cut their odds post-match.
In an action packed weekend fixture list, the MIllers notched a home win to emphasise their pre-season favourites tag. Elsewhere, a win for Gillingham saw them extend their lead at the top to three points, while Port Vale won again to go second in the table.
Andy Mangan’s injury-time header gave Fleetwood a victory against 10-man Northampton on Saturday. Town now look set to battle it out with the big guns in League Two after an impressive start to the campaign. Pre-match, the Cod Army were available at 21/20 for promotion, but they soon found their odds slashed to 13/20. If you fancy them to earn promotion in style, then you can get a price of 7/2 for Town to finish first, cut from 4/1.
This win for Fleetwood meant that Rotherham could not afford to take their foot off the gas against Torquay. The Millers ensured victory over The Gulls thanks to a Kayode Odejayi strike, which left Rotherham priced at 13/20 for promotion and 7/2 for the title for a second consecutive week.
Gillingham remain top after a 4-0 victory over Bristol Rovers at The Priestfield. The Gills are now clear in 1st position by three points and they have not lost a league game this season, yet they are still not deemed as favourites for promotion. If you fancy them to go and claim promotion after this impressive start, then back The Gills at 7/4 to go up or 7/1 to win the league. Before the weekend’s fixtures took place, Gillingham were priced at 2/1 for promotion, their odds cut by the bwin bookies after this latest impressive result.
Elsewhere, Port Vale beat Plymouth 3-1 on Saturday. Vale were priced at 20/1 to win the league before the match and they are now available at 16/1 to taste league success, or 9/2 for promotion.
Also, Southend made it 3 wins on the bounce by beating Cheltenham 3-1. United saw their odds for promotion cut from 4/1 to 3/1, which makes them fourth favourite to go up. Alternatively, back them to finish first at 14/1.
