TOWN have taken seven points from their last nine, it's certainly not been pretty, but damned effective and in Division III, it has to be that way.
Scoring just three goals in three games, the opposition may have booed, but the results have brought some welcome Christmas cheer for the fans who have turned out at the McAlpine over the festive period.
Town held the mighty Oxford to a 1-1 draw and stole three points from the Reynolds Arena, Darlington before `Shaking' up Bury for another three.
Tomorrow they come up against the `in form' team of the division in Doncaster, who before last week's blip at the hands, or should that be paws, of the Tigers of Hull, had won their last five to put them on top of the table.
Dave Penney's side have come up from the Conference with a mission to go straight to the Second, and who would bet against them?
Back in August Andy Booth scored one of the easiest goals of his career to earn Town a point from a 1-1 draw at Belle Vue at Belle Vue, and would you Terriers take a similar result this time around?
Ladbrokes make PJ's men narrow favourites at 7/5 to continue to keep the McAlpine the fortress it has been, with the visitors priced at 6/4 and the draw a tempting 9/4. Resisting temptation, I'll plump for Boothy (if fit) at 6/1 to bag the only goal of the game and sneak another maximum for Town, 1-0 at 7/1. Boring, but who cares?
The Premiership `Big Boys' join the FA Cup `minnows' in the third round this weekend, and punters will be licking their lips and scouring the fixtures for upsets.
To save you the bother here's one from the menu. How do you fancy a really tasty bird at 4/1 to fly West and cook up a Toffee surprise?
Delia Smith's Canaries of Norwich are the form team in all divisions and will relish the trip to an out of sorts Everton at 8/13.
A 2-1 correct score bet at 16/1 would be the icing on the cake!
Leeds fans must have wondered whether to laugh or cry when their team were paired with Arsenal. Can this season get any worse?
When Leeds were given a home game, Eddie Gray must have said: "Come on, let's have a Cup run that will confound the critics and boost confidence." The guy pulling the second ball had different ideas!
Leeds are 4/1 to progress to the 4th round and 5/2 for a replay. The capital hot shots are a more realistic 4/7!
