Bedford – Weymouth 1 @ 2,0 (0-1) 2-1
Non League Premier, Southern
After four games without win, Bedford won in greath game away strong Chesham 3-4. Coach is happy with players performances and probably will put same squad.
Weymouth has tree points less and also just one victory in 5 rounds, but it was against worst team in league, Cirencester. They have lot problems today:
Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division club Weymouth’s injury nightmare continues to show no signs of letting up with three more players labelled doubtful ahead of tomorrow’s tough trip to Bedford Town.
Scott Dixon suffered a knock turning out for Team Bath this week while Craig Duff and Stephen Reed are both struggling with heavy colds.
Terras’ boss Brendon King, who has already lost the services of Sam Poole, Ben Gerring and Lewis Clarke this week and is also without keeper Nick Jordan
“Unfortunately, he had to play in the game as it was part of his university studies, and where he is only non-contract we are not in a position where we can stop him anyway.
“To make matters worse, Reedy and Craig have come down with heavy colds as well, so it is not looking good at the moment.
“However, there is no point wasting energy whingeing and moaning about it because these things happen in football, and you just have to get on with it.”
The worst case scenario could see King left with just 12 first-team squad members to choose from, including rookies Chris Povall and Luke Winsper, and new loan-signing Rhys Baggridge, who is in line to make his debut.
Admira – RB Salzburg
Salzburg must winning if they want keep first place. Today out midfielders Schiemer (14/0) and Leitgeb (17/1) and attackers Leonardo (22/2) and Maierhofer (19/8). Alan is long term injured. But, they have big roster of quality players which Admira doesnt have and today can have problems because of missings: defenders Dibon (20/1), Palla (11/0), Windbichler (17/0), Auer (11/1) and Drescher (19/1), midfielders Sulimani (11/2) and Jezek (22/7) and attacker Ouedraogo (19/4) so thery must called some players from reserves. Weber is one of them and will debut now in first 11 in defence.
Atromitos – Xanthi
Atromitos on 3rd plasce with form 5-1-0 and very good at home. One defender is out, Zuela (19/0) but back is Thiomas (18/0). Xanti 4 pts more than dangerous zone but it could be dangerous, they loose last 7 league games. Awfull form and atmosphere is bad. Today important midfielder Dani out

Honefoss – Lillestrøm
Hønefoss use artificial grass at their home stadium. Lillestrøm use natural grass at their home stadium.
Lillestrøms Petter Vaagan Moen failed to be a success for the Premier League side Queens Park Rangers, and has returned to Tippeligaen to try to get his career back on track. He made immidiate impact in his first pre-season games with many goals scored, and very solid work rate. He actually scored a hat-trick against Molde 9 days ago.
Vaagan Moen scored 14 goals in 27 games for Brann two seasons ago, and he is solid on penalties. He failed to be a star in Premier League, but he normally holds top Tippeliga class. Hes not facing Manchester United or Arsenal this time, and its big difference of class when facing newly promoted Hønefoss. I think there is value in backing Vaagan Moen to score here, at very good odds.
Petter Vaagan Moen to score, odds 4.75@Bet365 / by Mighty

Friday 23.03.2012 Molde – Strømsgodset
Molde use natural grass at their home stadium. Strømsgodset use artificial grass at their home stadium.
Molde became champions of Tippeligaen 2012, and they should be rated as a title favorite this year as well.
Key midfielder Makthar Thioune has left on a loan deal, but the rest of the squad is still the same. Even Hovland (Def, Sogndal) and Martin Linnes (Def/Mid, Kongsvinger) have been signed since last season.
The american talent Joshua Gatt (Mid/Att) has really impressed this pre-season. His quick pace and work rate makes him a good choice as a winger and as a backup wingback, and I think he will be a very important player for Molde this season.
Strømsgodset are traditionally a very solid home side, but they havent impressed on the road the latest seasons.
For this season, they have lost their star midfielder Mohammed Abu (was on loan from Manchester City) and their experienced defender Glenn Andersen.
They have added wingback Mounir Hamoud from Bodø/Glimt, and former top scorer Peter Kovacs to the club though.
Molde – Strømsgodset ended 2-2 in 2011.
Ole Gunnar Solskjærs reigning champions seem just as strong as last season, and the defense is very improved by the signing of Even Hovland from Sogndal.
Molde were 9-5-1 at home last season, while Strømsgodset were 1-6-8 on the road.
Its the season opener, so its hard to tell how good the teams are at the moment, but I feel Molde will win this game, as they have in-form players like Joshua Gatt (Mid/Att) to make a difference. Home win, money back if only won by one goal.
Molde (-1), 6/10 stakes, odds 1.92@PinnacleSports.
Joshua Gatt (Molde) to score, 4/10 stakes, odds 3.20@Unibet.
