Boro’ are one of ten teams who could realistically make the playoffs with three games left to play. Could now be the time to back them at odds of 6/1? It looks a fairly generous price for the team currently sitting fifth in the table, especially given many rivals seem to be stuttering at the crucial stage. None of the current sides in the playoffs have managed to win more than 50% of their last four games.
Luton look the most likely side to be in the playoffs. Currently sitting in fourth, the Hatters could secure their spot if they win on Saturday and other results go their way. Boro’ have already beaten the Hatters home and away in the league this season, making the 6/1 odds look even more generous.
Boro’ Have Done It Before In The Playoffs
Most football fans know that the playoffs are a lottery in determining promotion, but Boro’ have fond memories of the League 2 playoffs after gaining promotion vs Torquay back in the 2010/11 season. Back then Boro’ secured promotion at Old Trafford despite finishing ten points short of Shrewsbury in sixth place. Fans will remember our form wasn’t too hot towards the end of that season either, with just a single victory in our last 6 games.
An interesting outsider could be Accrington at 20/1, who many of you will remember Boro’ defeated home away in the playoff semi-final back in 2011. Stanley finished fourth last season but suffered heartbreak in the playoffs when losing to eventual winners Wimbledon after extra-time. That experience could be vital this time around as John Coleman’s men look to set the record straight. They have been in excellent form in the second half of the season, unbeaten in fifteen games since a defeat to Pompey in early February.
