Port Vale Preview – Can the Valiants turn the tie around?

Port Vale have had a season to remember so far, finishing in fifth place in League Two to take one of the four play-off spots. The Valiants picked up 22 wins, lost 12 and drew 12.

Their poor form at the end of the regular season cost them a top-three spot, but they did end the campaign with a 1-0 win at Exeter City. Before their slump in form, which has seen them lose four of their last five, Vale had won eight and drawn one of nine.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1338 GMT, Wednesday 18 May)

After the narrow loss in Swindon, can Port Vale turn this around and book their spot at Wembley Stadium? The home side are priced at 23/20 to get the win in the 90.

Swindon Town Preview – Can Town make it six wins in a row?

Ben Garner guided Swindon Town to the play-offs in his first season at the County Ground. They had a disastrous campaign in EFL League One last term, suffering relegation after finishing in 23rd. However, they are gunning for an instant return to the third tier.

Swindon ended the regular season like a house on fire, securing successive wins over Hartlepool United, Forest Green Rovers, Barrow and Walsall. Last week’s first-leg play-off win was their fifth victory on the spin.
