Fit-again pair set to fire rocking Robins to victory

Swindon's Nicky Ajose
1 of 1

Sky Bet Football League 
7.45pm Tuesday 

Swindon v Gillingham
Struggling Swindon have not registered back-to-back wins all season but can follow up their 3-1 triumph at Coventry on Saturday by beating Gillingham at the County Ground.

It has been a difficult season for Swindon, who have not triumphed on home soil since late November.

But they were dominant in a 0-0 draw with Oldham in their last home game (winning the shot count 26-8) and will have gained confidence from the Coventry victory.

Goalscoring has been a problem for most of the season.

Too much has depended on former Tottenham trainee Jonathan Obika, who has been plagued by injuries. But Obika was on target in the win at Coventry (the first time he had completed 90 minutes since January 7) and he worked well alongside January loan signing Nicky Ajose, who also scored.

The key from this point is for Obika and Ajose to stay fit because they have the quality to fire Swindon to safety.

The duo were too good for Coventry and can enjoy themselves against Gillingham, who have not kept a clean sheet in 12 matches.

Gillingham's 11-match winless run came to an end with a 2-1 triumph at home to Southend on Saturday.

However, they were massively helped by a first-half red card for Southend defender Ryan Iniss and still made hard work of it.

Gills are still not out of the relegation battle and a defeat at Swindon could plunge them back into trouble.

Recommendation
Swindon
2pts 6-4 Hills

Accrington v Wycombe
Wycombe's Sky Bet League Two promotion push has ground to a halt with five successive defeats and another is on the cards at the Wham Stadium.

Gareth Ainsworth's side have been making too many defensive errors and their lack of solidity is understandable because defensive kingpin Aaron Pierre has been struggling with an ankle injury and hasn't completed a full match since last month's 4-3 FA Cup loss at Tottenham.

Left back Joe Jacobsen is available to return after missing Saturday's 2-1 loss at home to Crawley through suspension but the team's confidence has been dropping and they are up against an improving Accrington side playing much better than their league position of 20th suggests.

Accrington recorded a 2-2 draw at leaders Doncaster on Saturday and will fancy their chances of maximum points against Wycombe.

Recommendation
Accrington
2pts 6-4 general

Stevenage v Leyton Orient
Stevenage have climbed to within one point of the League Two playoffs after winning five of their last six games and look solid favourites to defeat lowly Leyton Orient at Broadhall Way.

Darren Sarll's side have won four home matches in succession are should be far too strong for Orient, who have lost eight of their ten matches this year and look destined for the National League.

Recommendation
Stevenage
2pts 5-6 bet365, Betfair, Hills
