Stevenage vs Port Vale Prediction
Stevenage were left with just a point to savor for the twelfth time this term after they played out a far from exciting stalemate with Colchester at home. Miserably, the hosts are now winless in their past ten clashes in the fourth division, with their last taste of success coming way back in October.
With no more than eighteen points to their name, the home side are currently above rock-bottom side Morecambe, albeit only on goal difference.
On the other hand, Port Vale are unbeaten in their past five clashes in League Two. Be that as it may, they have managed to come away with the win just once in those fixtures, and have garnered no more than seven points from a possible fifteen in the process.
To make matters worse, the guests have not been faring well in their recent trips on the road. The visitors have dropped points in each of their previous three outings on the trot. And, have emerged victoriously just twice away from home this season as well.
Furthermore, Port Vale have failed to secure the bragging rights in each of their past four visits here. Given that the hosts have not admitted defeat in any of their last two games at home either, Stevenage are more than just likely to edge past the guests in this one.
However, no other team has drawn more games than the home side this term. Considering that two of their last three meetings with each other have also ended as a tie, back a double chance to be on the safer side this weekend.
Additionally, the hosts have kept a clean sheet in all but one of their past five encounters on home soil. It is also worth mentioning that all of their previous five h2h fixtures here have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards.
Taking the aforementioned into consideration, it is certainly safe to expect goals to be scarce come Saturday.
