Competition: National League

Market: Notts County half-time/full-time

Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport

Two sides battling it out at opposite ends of the National League table, Notts County will welcome Gateshead to Meadow Lane on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, last seen over the weekend putting in another action-packed display, Notts County are enjoying a real National League purple patch. Eventually picking up a 4-3 victory away at Maidenhead a few days ago, the Magpies have also found a route to the top of the fifth-tier table. With many tipping Luke Williams’ side to secure a football League return this season, they are also now in the midst of a nine-match unbeaten run. Smelling a golden chance to lay down another marker on Tuesday night, Notts have also continued to shine with their displays in the final third. Bagging eight strikes in their back-to-back National League wins, the midweek hosts could be calling on Macaulay Langstaff to spearhead their charge. Including a brace over the weekend, the 25-year-old has now notched 21 goals in his 22 appearances.

As for the visitors, while Notts County might be leading the chase in the National League promotion chase, Gateshead find themselves in the midst of a continued struggle. Last seen over the weekend putting in another flat display as they were hit with a 2-0 loss at home against Aldershot, Mike Williamson’s men now sit four points adrift of safety. Although the one-time Newcastle defender might have seen his side land a shock 3-1 win against Southend last month, it appears that was just a minor boost for the relegation scrappers. In fact, that victory on home soil was the only win that Gateshead have collected from their previous nine attempts – a run that stems all the way back to October 18th. Facing what is a huge test when they make the trip to Meadow Lane in midweek, it is hard to see anything other than a routine home victory.
