The League Two clash between Torquay and Port Vale may not attract the largest amount of attention this weekend, but it does provide some betting value in the match odds market – even with a new manager in the home dugout.
Match: Torquay v Port Vale
Betting tip: Back Port Vale
Best Odds: 2.15 with Pinnacle
Kick Off: 15:00 23/02/2013 (GMT)
Torquay have been on a dire run, which has led to a change of manager with Alan Knill arriving to take charge of his first game this weekend. His assumption however, that “it’s just the last five games where results have gone against us”, is a little on the optimistic side, no doubt to try and restore some battered confidence. The truth is that the Gulls have won just one of the last twelve, and have not won at home since the 1st of December. The last five defeats are simply an extension of that poor form. Visitors Port Vale have been strong on the road all season, winning nine of sixteen. Their last away defeat was way back in October and the only reason they are odds-against is the arrival of a new manager at Torquay. It is a clear call on value.
