Our League Two expert Nick Hext is getting with Aldershot when they make the trip to Wycombe.

I'm more than happy to return to a tip from a couple of weeks ago as I get with Aldershot once again in the draw no bet market when they travel to Wycombe.

The pick failed to get us a profit as the Shots drew 1-1 at Rochdale on March 29 but the reasoning behind it still rings true.

Andy Scott's side remain bottom-of-the-table - one point behind both York and Torquay - but their away form is decent with only one defeat in their previous nine League Two games on the road.

That runs reads played nine, won one, drawn seven, lost one so the logic behind taking the draw no bet option rather than the victory on its own should be clear.

Tuesday night's 1-1 draw at second-placed Port Vale was a hugely creditable result and - like against Rochdale - the Shots could well have come away with all three points.

"Fantastic performance and we're disappointed that we've only come away with a point. We were in control and we stopped them having clear chances," Scott told BBC Surrey after the Vale Park contest.

"We performed just as well in the second half, if not better, and created some better chances and you know people will be going away saying 'how are they bottom of the league?'

"For the nine games I've been in charge, the lads have given me everything, the confidence is growing and they are believing in themselves."

Vale boss Mickey Adams also agreed Aldershot could have claimed the win so the level of performance is there on a three-match unbeaten run.

Now the victories are needed and Wycombe's recent home form isn't great with one win, one draw and three defeats from their previous five matches at Adams Park.

Recent results suggest the draw is the way to go but I think Aldershot can claim the victory so the 11/8 draw no bet is a price I will take advantage of.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
