Football – England – National League Betting Tips

As well as international action this weekend, there’s also action from the English lower leagues starting with the National League where Harrogate Town take on Dover Athletic as the betting tips continue.

It’s been a very successful campaign for Harrogate in what is their inaugural season in the non-league top flight as the hosts sit in third place and just one point adrift of fellow newcomers, Salford City who sit top of the division.

Recent back-to-back wins over Boreham Wood and Ebbsfleet United, both of which were away from home, means that the home side will be looking for a third win on the trot on Saturday afternoon. 

Harrogate possess a home record of  4-2-1 14/8 and although they’re without a win from their last two matches at their CNG Stadium, the opponents were second placed Leyton Orient and fourth placed Wrexham.

Dover Athletic have made a disappointing start to their new National League campaign as they sit second from bottom with just 7 points to their name and just one win so far this season. It’s a far cry from the Dover Athletic outfit which narrowly missed out on a play-off spot at the end of last term, and they face a long and tough trip to North Yorkshire this Saturday.

Dover’s poor start has resulted in the departure of former manager, Chris Kinnear, and former Gillingham player and manager, Andy Hessenthaler has taken over the reigns at The Crabble as he looks to lift Dover out of the relegation pack.

However, four defeats from their last five and a total of 11 league matches without a win means that Hessenthaler has his work cut out ahead of him and not only this Saturday. An away record of   0-3-4  5/15 is pretty poor, as well as being the joint fourth lowest goalscorers away from home in the division to date.

All in all, my betting tips suggest a home win here for Harrogate.
