Prediction for League Two match – Port Vale vs Sutton
Bookmaker Ratings prediction one: Port Vale to Win – 2.05
Bookmaker Ratings prediction two: Both Teams to Score – 1.91
Port Vale to Win
Port Vale took seven points from a recent tough gauntlet of fixtures against Mansfield, Bradford and Exeter, and with their confidence levels topped up, the Valiants can push for victory again against a Sutton side that failed to win four of their last five fixtures on the road.
Both Teams to Score
When Port Vale and Sutton last met in October, the teams traded blows in a cracking contest that produced seven goals, and on Saturday, we expect both teams to get in on the act again. BTTS has landed in three of Port Vale’s last four and in each of Sutton’s last three games and the same market is available at an appealing price this weekend.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Port Vale vs Sutton
Port Vale welcome Sutton to Staffordshire on Saturday in a League One clash that could prove to be a pivotal fixture in the race to secure a playoff berth this season.
Ahead of kick-off, Port Vale (9th) are just one place and one point behind Sutton (8th), though a win for either side at Vale Park could catapult the victor to within touching distance of the automatic promotion spots near the table’s summit.
For our money, Port Vale are best placed to land such a decisive blow. The Valiants have just emerged from a testing run of fixtures against tricky trio Mansfield, Bradford and Exeter with an impressive seven-point haul, and that string of results should ensure that they are brimming with confidence this weekend.
Sutton meanwhile, have been struggling on the road, where their only win in five attempts came at relegation-favourites Oldham. Before that recent victory at the Latics, Sutton had lost three out of four away skirmishes and their lingering travel sickness could hold them back again on Saturday afternoon.
Another positive string to Port Vale’s bow is the return to form of striker James Wilson who has scored twice in three games. The ex-Manchester United starlet has blown hot and cold this season, though he has the technical talents to run amok in the fourth tier on his day.
With Wilson in lethal mood, Port Vale should have the firepower to outgun a Sutton side that have been shipped far too many goals away from home (28 in 19). Indeed, only six clubs in the division have conceded more often on their travels than The Us, so stick with the hosts in the match result markets on Saturday.
Sutton are conceding 1.47 goals per 90 minutes on the road this season and only half a dozen outfits have shipped more away goals overall. Port Vale put three goals past the Sutton defence when the teams last met in October and with James Wilson back in form, they look a solid bet at 2.25 to notch over 1.5 times on Saturday.
Get Quick Rich
Seven goals rattled the net when Port Vale and Sutton last locked horns in October in what was one of the most enthralling spectacles of the League Two campaign so far. With the same players on show in Saturday’s rematch, supporters will be expecting fireworks again and a stake on over 3.5 goals at 3.75 could be worth considering for bettors searching for bigger prices.
Port Vale vs Sutton first goalscorer
James Wilson’s name has already featured heavily in our preview and Port Vale’s frontman looks an outstanding prospect at 6.0 to grab the game’s first goal on Saturday. Wilson bagged two goals in his last three appearances and one of his efforts gave the Valiants the lead against Mansfield. The 26-year-old has the skill to make a similar impact against Sutton.
Port Vale vs Sutton Team News
Lucas Covolan, James Gibbons, Dan Jones, Tom Conlon and Jake Taylor could all be missing for Port Vale this weekend.
Jon Barden is a confirmed absentee at the back for Sutton while Will Randall, Donovan Wilson and Isaac Olafe are all considered doubtful..

Sutton: Bouzanis – Boldewijn, Goodliffe, Rowe, Wyatt – Ajiboye, Davis, Lovatt, Korboa – Bugiel, Bennett
Winger David Ajiboye has been one of Sutton’s most effective players this season, chipping in with seven goals and three assists from the right flank since August. The Brighton academy graduate hasn’t scored since the end of January, however, and the 23-year-old will be keen to rediscover his touch in the final third on Saturday.
