- Created: 15:57, 3rd February 2014 | Last updated: 18:00, 4th March 2016

Ross Casey offers his best bets for the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy regional finals… remember these are the first matches of two leg ties! In the Northern section we have League Two high-flyers Fleetwood and Chesterfield battling it out for a place at Wembley, whilst League One offer both sides in the Southern section – Peterborough and Swindon. Who will grace the hallowed turf in the final? Ross Casey has his say…

Ross’ Recommended Bets

Fleetwood v Chesterfield (Tues, 19:45)

Chesterfield To Win @ 39/20 – BET NOW

Chesterfield reclaimed top spot in League One from Scunthorpe on the weekend after a run of just one loss in 11. This renewed confidence is in direct contrast to what Fleetwood are feeling. The Spireites have already picked up a point at Highbury in the league this season and can be even more positive than that come Tuesday. Fleetwood will be reeling by their home defeat to York on Saturday and this match could be another step too far for the big spending Cod Army.

Peterborough v Swindon (Weds, 19:15, SS1)

Peterborough To Win @ 6/5 – BET NOW

Swindon have not won any of their last seven matches away from home and will be missing Alex Pritchard and Troy Archibald-Henville through suspension. The Posh have won 14 of their 20 home matches this season – including beating the Robins in the league this season. Simple really! Back Darren Ferguson’s side at 6/5 to win the first leg.
