THEIR chances of sneaking into the League I play-offs may be all but over with just half a dozen fixtures left to play.
But Town are nevertheless brimming with confidence having recorded back-to-back away wins at Hereford and Bristol Rovers.
Accordingly, the Terriers are Jaxx.com’s narrow 27/20 favourites as they prepare to welcome Southend, Betdaq’s 9/4 outsiders, to the Galpharm Stadium.
At home, however, there has been just one win in five for Town, who have shared the spoils in two of their last three on their own patch.
And punters taking these two stalemates as a signal to back another, at 12/5 with Betfred, can also obtain odds of 11/2 (Coral) for the clash to finish 1-1.
In addition, Victor Chandler quote odds of 14/1 for a four-goal thriller that ends in a 2-2 draw and 4/1 is available with Stan James for the contest to be level at the halfway point and the final whistle.
Confident home fans casting their minds back to December, of course, will recall that the Terriers grabbed the only goal of the game when the pair met at Roots Hall.
Lee Clark’s charges are 7/1 courtesy of Sportingbet to register a repeat of that scoreline and 9/2 with bet365 to again tag a victory on to the back of a drawn first period.
Ian Craney, who bagged the winner in that fixture, is rated by Boylesports as a 10/1 shot to replicate his opening goal scoring feat in a clash that is 9/10 (Betdaq) to again feature less than three successful strikes.
However, Craney has featured from the bench of late and so Danny Cadamarteri, who is back amongst the goals, could be a shrewder proposition at 15/2 with Blue Square to break the deadlock.
