ARE Town getting an attack of the Third Division yips or are they getting a bit too big for their football boots?
They can't afford anymore slip-ups from here on in, especially in their remaining two home fixtures, where only maximum points will do if they are to secure automatic promotion.
Town's away record is nothing special, in fact if they had reproduced the same form at the McAlpine, they would be sitting in 17th place in the table, just below Kidderminster on 48 points!
Tomorrow sees 20th-placed Scunthorpe come to Town to try and claw their way out of the relegation battle with a much-needed win.
Town old boy Brian Laws is back in the Iron `hot seat' after the club's major shareholder Steve Wharton regained control at Glanford Park.
Laws had left the club last month `by mutual consent' (whatever that means).
His brief no doubt is a simple one, to keep Scunthorpe in the Football League.
Ladbrokes have Town serious 4/11 favourites for this fixture, with the Iron at 6/1 and the draw on offer at 3/1.
A draw would not be much use to either side. Town need to open up a gap between themselves and fourth-placed Torquay, with sterner tests ahead in the shape of Hull and Mansfield.
Iron fans will no doubt be chanting "Remember, remember the six of November!".
But don't rise to the bait, you Terriers, there won't be anywhere near a repeat of the 6-2 spanking your team got back then.
Instead I'm going for a comfortable 2-0 win for Town at 6/1 with Ladbrokes.
Torquay (6/4) have a real fight on their hands for any kind of result on Saturday as they play hosts to table-toppers Doncaster (7/5).
A win for Rovers would just about give them the title, if it wasn't theirs already and I don't see the Gulls stopping them, which is good news for Town to boot!
The Premiership relegation battle is now a six-horse race from 15th-placed Manchester City down to already relegated Wolves at the foot.
Leeds were so unlucky not to beat Everton on Tuesday, with Nigel Martyn keeping his old club at bay with a string of super saves.
The 1-1 draw kept Leeds in the drop zone and they may have to stay there for a while longer as their next match is tonight at Highbury against champions-elect Arsenal!
Leeds are quite rightly a massive 7/1 to beat Arsene Wenger's Gunners, who at 1/4, will be most punters `coupon banker'.
Just one quiz question, though: Who were the last Premiership team to beat Arsenal? Answers on a post card to Elland Road!
Blackburn (4/5) host fellow strugglers Leicester (11/4) in a real `six pointer' tomorrow, and with Rovers shocking at home, I feel a `cunning' 2-1 win coming on for the Foxes!
