HUDDERSFIELD Town were made to work very hard for their three points by Oldham and it could be just as close against Brentford.
The Bees are solid on the road and their away form might prompt a few neutrals to tackle Stan James’ 11/4 for the spoils to be shared at the Galpharm, where the pair were inseparable last season.
That one however, finished 4-4, a repeat of which is an unlikely-looking 325/1 at Paddy Power and at 13/2 (Skybet), a 1-1 scoreline is considered more realistic.
Nevertheless, bookies are confident Town can bag a third straight win and fans sharing that belief can back them at 3/4 with BetVictor to send Ladbrokes’ 4/1 outsiders home empty-handed.
In what is set to be a tight, nip-and-tuck affair, Town are 13/2 courtesy of William Hill to again grab the game’s only goal.
And another success following on from a drawn first period is available via Boylesports at 18/5.
Elsewhere, Clark’s troops are a 2/1 shot (Blue Square) to again prevail ‘to nil’ and sticking with less specific results, Partybets price the Terriers at 14/5 to emerge victorious by a one-goal margin.
Predictably, Jordan Rhodes heads the first scorer betting at odds of 3/1 with bet365.
Last week’s match winner Alan Lee is a slightly chunkier 5/1 (Betfred) and bet365 make the pair 4/5 and 7/4 respectively to strike at any stage.
