TOWN are now just three points adrift of Colchester in the race for the final play-off place.
And with a winnable sequence of fixtures on the agenda, they will be confident of infiltrating the top six, an outcome bet365 rate at 4/5, especially as the U’s, by contrast, face a tough-looking run of games.
First up for Lee Clark’s side is tomorrow’s trip to Wycombe, where Town are 11/10 with Ladbrokes to collect three points and 5/2 (Betdaq) to emerge empty-handed.
The Chairboys have drawn their last four, which will certainly nudge neutrals towards Betfred’s 12/5 for the scores to be level and totesport’s 14/1 for it to finish 2-2.
But as the Terriers managed a 2-0 win at Leyton Orient in their last away fixture, a similar outcome isn’t out of the question at Adams Park.
Clark’s men are 9/1 (Paddy Power) to again notch twice without reply, but as the hosts have been relatively solid at home of late, a one-goal margin of victory seems more likely at 3/1 with 888Sport.
Accordingly, punters seeking correct-score value may wish to choose between Stan James’ 7/1 chalked against a 1-0 Town victory and Betfred’s 8/1 for Clark’s men to shade it 2-1.
Those leaning towards the latter can also obtain odds of 17/20 (Jaxx.com) for the contest to produce three or more goals or alternatively Partybets post 8/13 against both teams finding the net.
Victor Chandler, meanwhile, offer 5/2 for Clark’s troops to take charge in the first period to ensure they lead at the end of each half.
And top scorer Jordan Rhodes, who has struck in each of the last two games, is a generous 5/1 with William Hill to break the deadlock.
