Ignore league table and back Chesterfield upset

Fleetwood boss Uwe Rosler
1 of 1

Kick-offs 7.45pm Tuesday

Fleetwood v Chesterfield
Sky Bet League Two basement boys Chesterfield are the lowest ranked team to reach the second round of the EFL Trophy but they have a good chance of making further progress when they take on Fleetwood at Highbury.

Based on league status, this looks like a mismatch in favour of Fleetwood, who are 11th in Sky Bet League One.

But Fleetwood manager Uwe Rosler has been using youngsters and fringe players in this competition and is unlikely to change tack because the club's busy December schedule has been clogged up further by the addition of an FA Cup second-round replay at Hereford.

Chesterfield were knocked out of the FA Cup in the first round and have just had a free weekend.

They should be raring to go and are worth backing to extend the five-match unbeaten run established under new manager Jack Lester.

Recommendation
Chesterfield or draw double chance
2pts 11-8 general

Yeovil v Wimbledon
Yeovil impressed in the Trophy group stage, taking eight points from a possible nine, and look value to topple Wimbledon at Huish Park.

Darren Way doesn't have the biggest of squads but he has been selecting strong teams for the cup competitions.

An extended run in the EFL Trophy would be a boost to Way's shoestring budget and Yeovil should be better prepared than the Wombles, who won 3-1 at home to Charlton in the FA Cup second round on Sunday. 

Wimbledon boss Neil Ardley is likely to ring the changes and his team look poor-value favourites to win the game.

Recommendation
Yeovil
1pt 9-4 bet365
