Two out of two for the system so far..but only time will tell if it's a good one. Below are the National League fixtures for Bank Holiday Monday which shows Woking (five out of six of their matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals) v Chester (five out of six of their matches also) as the top rated game. Searching around the web I currently can't find the odds for over 2.5 in this game so we'll see on Monday. Below are also some random facts and statistics on the current National League -

29/8/2016 WOKING v CHESTER  22


* Wrexham are the lowest scorers on 4 goals - The Welsh sides scoring record in the league so far is 0,3, 0, 1, 0 and 0. 

* Tranmere Rovers v Guiseley is top v bottom. The away side have lost all six of their games so far with Rovers dropping their first points of the season in the 1-1 draw with Southport on Saturday. Guiseley have scored in five of their six games only failing to register versus Dagenham and Redbridge. No surprises to see Tranmere 4/11 on for this game with an away victory at 8/1. Tranmere are the only unbeaten team left in the division.

* After a defeat and a draw in their opening games Forest Green Rovers are starting to show why they were pre-season favourites for the title winning four games in a row. They are odds on at 2/5 to win at home versus Southport on Bank Holiday Monday. 

* FOUR TEAMS - Guiseley, Macclesfield Town, Lincoln City and Dagenham & Redbridge are the only sides left to register a draw after six games played. 

* Home teams like to score? In the first round of matches only three of the twelve home sides failed to score and from then on it's been 1/12, 1/12, 2/12, 1/12 and on Saturday no home team failed to score in the games played.

COMING SOON ON THE COLD END

It's been a busy last few days for TheColdEnd but I can bring you news that there will be highlights and match reports on here soon of Stevenage Community v Baldock Town Reserves from Thursday evening along with Biggleswade FC v Buckingham Athletic from today which was a highly entertaining game - One of the best I've seen for a long while.

Unfortunately at present there are just not enough hours in the day to complete the editing of the highlight's packages. 

Keep reading and hopefully I'll have them done in a few days time.  

Wherever you are off to watch football on Bank Holiday Monday have a great time and enjoy the game.

SHOCK - THE COLD END WINS A BET - THE OVER 2.5 GOALS SYSTEM WEEK 2

The over 2.5 goals system worked well on week 1 with the top rated game Lincoln City v Southport ended 4-0. Over 2.5 goals was rated at 7/10 with the bookmakers. Here are this weeks fixtures for the National League based on the system rated on the last four games played.

OVER 2.5 GOALS SYSTEM
NO GOALS SCORED minus 2 
NO GOALS LET IN minus 2 
0-0 DRAW minus 1 

GOALS SCORED/LET IN 
1 +1
2 +2
3 +3
4 or more +4
  
This weeks highest rated game is Guiseley v Bromley. The home side have lost all five of their league games played so far - three of them have ended 2-3. Bromley won their last game 3-2 so perhaps it might be worth a little bet on that scoreline which is rated at 28/1? Over 2.5 goals is odds on at 8/11 with a home win rated at 11/8, an away win at 7/4 and a draw at 12/5. 

The lowest rated game is the early kick off which is live on BT Sports. Wrexham have been involved in two 0-0 draws and only one of their games has ended with over 2.5 goals scored. The Daggers have kept three clean sheets so far - I think this one may end in a narrow victory for John Still's side.

Both have made unbeaten starts to their league season. They had mixed fortunes in their FA Cup games both against teams from the Southern Combination League. Wanderers won an cracker winning 3-4 at Premier Division Shoreham with The Terrors losing 0-1 at home in a shock result to Division One East Preston. The South London club's manager Frank Wilson will be eager to put things right this weekend.
 
Sittingbourne V South Park
Mention has to go to the game at Woodstock Park. The Brickies league results have been 3-3 and 4-4 draws followied by a 1-1 and 0-5 away defeat in Cup matches with Hythe Town. South Park have lost both league games 1-4 and 2-3 before winning 2-0 at Division One (North) side Phoenix Sports who have won both of their league games so far. There could be a few goals in this one.

Two of the new Division Four teams start off with a local derby when Shephall United play Stevenage Tigers. Hertford Heath also return to football with a home game against Elizabeth Allen Old Boys 'A' team.
