LV BET Preview: A Look Through At Matchday Two

By Oliver Osborn

After what felt like a long summer waiting for football to return the National League got underway this weekend - and it didn’t disappoint.

Entertaining games at Ebbsfleet and Harrogate saw a combined nine goals netted - 30 goals being scored in total across the division.

FC Halifax Town top the table after the opening weekend notching a 4-1 away win over Ebbsfleet United, capitalising on a red card shown to Jack King in the first 10 minutes. Halifax are now favourites to build more momentum and bag another 3-points against Hartlepool United tomorrow.

A brace from Dover Athletic’s Alfie Pavey saw them emerge 2-1 winners away to Chesterfield. Pavey is great value at to claim to National League Golden Boot this season and will hope to add to his tally at home to Dagenham and Redbridge tomorrow night.

Last season’s losing Promotion Finalists AFC Fylde beat Aldershot Town and begin preparations to face Chorley. Dave Challinor’s men are odds-on to get the three points tomorrow night and already one of the favourites get promoted this season.

Sutton United also got their campaign off to a flyer with Harry Beautyman scoring twice in a 3-1 away win against Hartlepool United. Fancy the U’s to make it back-to-back victories? They’re good value to continue the run and beat Barnet at home on Tuesday night.
