HUDDERSFIELD Town have taken just one point from their last three games and boss Simon Grayson will be acutely aware that form needs to improve if his team are to stay in touch with the Championship play-off places.

A three-point haul today would be a huge boost, especially as neighbours Leeds, Grayson’s former club, are the visitors.

With United arriving on the back of consecutive victories, bookies don’t believe it’s a particularly clear-cut contest.

William Hill nevertheless make Town slight favourites at 6/4 while an away success is as high as 2/1 with BetVictor.

Bet365 post 12/5 against a draw, a price that will inevitably be popular ahead of a potentially spicy derby.

And it’s 6/1 courtesy of Ladbrokes to finish 1-1.

Alternatively, Skybet offer 9/2 about the scores being level at the end of each half and for home supporters, Stan James quote Town at 8/11 in their ‘Draw No Bet’ market.

At the same firm, it’s 4/6 for both teams to get on the scoresheet and with that outcome looking likely, Town fans might fancy bet365’s 17/2 marked against a 2-1 victory for their side, who are 16/5 (BetVictor) to come out on top by a one-goal margin.

Elsewhere, Grayson’s side are 3/1 via Stan James to be in front at the end of each half and Skybet quote odds of 4/5 for the contest to produce three or more goals, the first of which is 13/2 (bet365) to be struck by Simon Church.

Against his former club, however, Jermaine Beckford, if fit, will probably attract more cash to break the deadlock, at odds of 11/2 with BetVictor.
