James Vaughan's incredible start to the season continued a fortnight ago as he bagged Huddersfield Town’s goal in the defeat at Barnsley to take his tally to eight in seven matches in all competitions (six in five in the Championship).
Little wonder, then, that bookies are treading carefully where the frontman is concerned, bet365’s 4/1 the market best for him to break the deadlock as Doncaster come to town.
BetVictor post 11/10 against the ex-Norwich man adding to his tally at any stage.
And betway go 9/2 about him scoring twice or more.
In terms of the match itself, Mark Robins’s side are strong favourites at evens (Ladbrokes) to bounce back from the Oakwell loss by getting the better of Rovers, Stan James’s 10/3 outsiders.
And it’s 13/5 with BetVictor for the points to be shared.
That was the result in the pair’s last meeting here, back in April 2008, and a repeat of the 2-2 scoreline from that one is a 16/1 shot at William Hill. Alternatively, Skybet rate Town at 2/5 in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market, but given their side’s home advantage and Vaughan’s form, it seems unlikely that supporters fancying flutter will be exercising that kind of caution.
Of more appeal will be BetVictor’s 17/2 chalked against a 2-1 Town triumph, bet365’s 11/4 for any victory by one and a lead for Mark Robins’ men at both the interval and full-time at 2/1 courtesy of Stan James.
Elsewhere, Winner.com offer 8/11 about both teams finding the net, odds of 19/20 are available with bet365 for a match tally of three or more goals and Paddy Power make Town 4/6 to open the scoring.
