TOWN have taken a respectable 10 points from their opening five fixtures to leave themselves fourth in League I, priced by Coral at just 15/8 to go up, but they aren’t expected to add to their tally tomorrow.
They are 9/4 outsiders with bet365 to clinch a three-point haul while Paul Ince’s hosts are Betdaq’s 13/10 favourites.
However, Town are stronger this term than they were last season, when they managed a draw at StadiumMK, so they have no reason to fear the trip to Buckinghamshire.
Punters may wish to back the spoils to be shared again, an outcome Jaxx.com quote at 23/10, and also popular could be Stan James’s 11/2 for a repeat of March’s 1-1 scoreline.
This would ensure a profit for those siding with Lee Clark’s troops in the handicaps, where Betfred give them a mythical goal start at odds of 4/7.
Town supporters anticipating an away win will be interested to note Sportingbet’s odds of 9/1 for the visitors to notch the contest’s only goal, a result that would please anyone taking advantage of Victor Chandler’s 9/10 for a match tally of fewer than three goals and Blue Square’s generous offer of 11/5 for Clark’s side to keep a clean sheet.
At the other end, rested for the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy trip to Rotherham, Theo Robinson should return at MK and Town’s joint top scorer is 8/1 (bet365) to net first.
Strike partner Jordan Rhodes, who also has six goals, is also back in the frame and is rated as a 6/1 shot by Boylesports to do likewise.
And an opener courtesy of Peter Clarke, who has a habit of popping up at set-pieces and netted against the Millers on Tuesday, is a mouth-watering 25/1 with Ladbrokes.
