VICTORY over Notts County put second-placed Town four points in front of Peterborough in the League I promotion race.
Subsequently Lee Clark’s troops are now just 6/4 with Totesport to make the Championship.
And bookies feel they can edge close to that aim by collecting another three points at Tranmere, Coral installing them as 5/4 favourites and Betdaq making the hosts 3.5 (5/2) to end Town’s excellent run.
Betfred chalk 12/5 against the draw and that won’t be without support given that the pair shared the spoils at the Galpharm early on this season.
That one finished goalless, a scoreline quoted at 9/1 by Stan James to be repeated here, but as Rovers have won just one of their last nine, Town should have the edge.
The hosts have scored just once in four outings while Town have kept four clean sheets in a row and these statistics point to a Town win ‘to nil’ at 23/10 with Partybets.
Taking that further, punters can back Clark’s charges at 7/1 (Ladbrokes) to grab the game’s only goal and Sportingbet make them 9/1 to notch twice without reply in a clash rated by Victor Chandler at 3/4 to yield less than three goals.
Elsewhere, bet365 make Town 11/4 to shade it by a one-goal margin on the Wirral, where they’re 4/1 courtesy of Paddy Power to come out on top after a drawn first half.
Meanwhile, following his brace against Notts, most fans will want to back Jordan Rhodes to break the deadlock and he’s 9/2 with William Hill to do so.
