Best Picks and Top Predictions for Salford vs Hartlepool

Two teams that have a different goal before the season ends are meeting in this round 43 match of League Two.

Salford to Win

The odds for the home team's win in this Salford vs Hartlepool prediction are not great but could be decent enough for bettors to take their chance. Salford's battle for promotion playoffs is getting tougher with a surprising loss at home on Saturday to Colchester which put their hopes of breaking into the top seven of the standings a setback. However, those chances are still there, and no excuses will be accepted if they fail to beat Hartlepool whose season is also getting complicated as they are in the relegation zone. Salford won three straight h2h matches against Hartlepool.

Under 2.5 Goals

For the final prediction for the Salford vs Hartlepool match, the under 2.5 goals option looks legitimate mostly because of their h2h record. Only once in their last five matches did these teams go over the line of two goals. The last four matches they played ended with the same score 2-0. Looking at the over/under stats for the entire season, Salford had 23 games of fewer than three goals scored while Hartlepool is the best ‘over' team in the league with 23 matches that went over the line and 19 the other way. However, three out of their last five games ended with fewer than three goals in the back of the net.

Salford vs Hartlepool Lineups, Team Information, and Preview

Salford

The home team on this day was stunned in their last match, losing at home to Colchester which severely damaged their hopes of getting into the top seven rankings thus making it to the promotion playoffs. Those chances are still there, but now the situation has become more complicated. League Two has a tough schedule with two games being played virtually every week, and teams are struggling with fatigue at this point of the season.

Potential lineup: Cairns, Touray, Mariappa, Vassell, Sphehard, Lund, Watt, McAleny, Hendry, Bolton, Smith.

Hartlepool

While their opponent is fighting to enter the promotion battle, Hartlepool has a different agenda, trying to survive and stay in League Two for another season. They had an eight-match unbeaten run until their last match which they lost at Newport County and that cost them dropping into the relegation zone with two points of disadvantage toward the first team outside that line.

Potential lineup: Stolarczyk, Dodds, Pruti, Murray, Ferguson, Cooke, Sylla, Featherstone, Kemp, Umerah, Jennings.

Starting Lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Callum Hendry

Scotland's center-forward has been tied for the best scorer at Salford with ten goals this season and four assists on his resume while playing in 35 matches. He has been a steady presence for a team that is trying to move the needle and play in promotion playoffs later this spring.
