Paul Robinson has his eyes on the English lower leagues today as he has picked out a treble that combines to pay around 9/2. Here are his selections:

- Back Wigan @ 7/10
- Back BTTS in Crawley v Wycombe @ 4/5
- Back BTTS in Barrow v Hartlepool @ 8/11

The Acca pays approximately 9/2

Wigan to press on in quest for automatic promotion

Bet 1: Back Wigan @ 7/10 - KO 19:45 GMT

The Latics are five points off the pace in League One but crucially they have three games in hand over both Blackburn and Shrewsbury above them, with this being one of them.

A trip to Walsall isn't the easiest, but the hosts are down in 17th and they come into the match in poor form. They have lost four of their last five outings - including their two latest ones - and they have won just one of six.

The selection were beaten by Southampton in the Cup at the weekend but they had returned to winning ways in the league prior to that, following a pair of draws.

They won their last away game at Bradford, and Walsall were beaten on their last two appearances in front of their own fans.


Goals to flow in League Two

Bet 2: Back BTTS in Crawley v Wycombe @ 4/5 - KO 19:45 GMT

We drop down a division for our second selection for a match between Crawley and Wycombe that has a great chance of goals at both ends.

The hosts are 12th in the table but still have an outside shot of making the play-offs. Their cause hasn't been helped by their recent points haul of two from a possible nine, and their last two results were score draws.

Wycombe are pushing for automatic promotion and they will move into third with a victory this evening, and in a league so tight, they need to take as many points as they can.

As far as the goals go, they have netted in each of their last seven away games - in fact, they scored more than once in six of them. Despite their good run of results, only two clean sheets were kept during that period and Crawley have fired just the one blank in 10 on this ground.


The Bluebirds and Monkey Hangers to come out firing

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Barrow v Hartlepool @ 8/11 - KO 19:45 GMT

Into the National League now for a big six pointer towards to the bottom of the table. Barrow and Hartlepool are locked together on 39 points - the same total as Solihull Moors in the final relegation position - but the pair do have games in hand over their relegation rivals.

A victory for either side this evening would be of huge importance as it would give them some breathing space at the bottom and I very much doubt that either team will go into this looking for a point.

That should be conducive for an attacking match, and if we consider that Barrow have had their last five at home see this selection land, compared with six of Hartlepool's last seven on the road, then we have a great looking bet at 8/11 for both teams to score.
