HUDDERSFIELD Town battled back from two goals down to beat Brentford 3-2, a result that moved them into the automatic promotion spots.

And Lee Clark’s men have the chance to move three points clear in second as their rivals, the Sheffield pair United and Wednesday, are both in FA Cup action.

Tranmere stand in Town’s way, but Huddersfield are Betfred’s even money favourites for the spoils while the hosts are a 3/1 shot at Stan James and it’s 5/2 via Skybet to finish all square, a result that could prove popular given the Terriers’ seven stalemates in 13 away matches this term.

A 2-2 scoreline could also attract some speculative cash at 14/1 (Blue Square) but as Town have registered a 2-0 triumph on each of their last three visits to Prenton Park, travelling fans are entitled to be confident. William Hill make Huddersfield 10/1 to again notch twice without reply, as they also did against Rovers in the corresponding fixture at the Galpharm Stadium back in September, and it’s 13/5 courtesy of Paddy Power for Clark’s troops to chalk up any victory ‘to nil’.

Punters expecting an early goal can tackle BetVictor’s 17/20 for the deadlock to be broken inside 27 minutes.

At 2/1, this time with Partybets, is an away win by two clear goals or more while in attack, Jordan Rhodes’ winner last weekend is bound to ensure he is well backed at 7/2 (Ladbrokes) to notch first in this one, although some might want to play safer by backing the prolific Town man at 5/6 via bet365 to strike at any time.
