Neither team managed to break the deadlock when Huddersfield Town faced Blackburn at Ewood Park earlier in the campaign and it’s 9/1 at Stan James for the pair to remain scoreless as they renew hostilities at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Alternatively, BetVictor price a repeat of the 2-2 scoreline from last season’s corresponding fixture at 16/1, it’s 13/5 via bet365 for the match to simply end in a stalemate and Winner.com quote odds of 4/1 for the sides to go in on level terms at both half-time and the final whistle.

Skybet rate Town at 4/6 in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market, but aided by home advantage, Mark Robins’s troops are actually narrow favourites at 11/8 with Paddy Power while Rovers are BetVictor’s 11/5 underdogs.

Nevertheless, a close encounter would appear to be on the cards, lending appeal to bet365’s 11/4 about a Town triumph by a one-goal margin and in a match that’s odds-on at 5/6 (Stan James) to see both teams find the net, Ladbrokes mark 10/1 against a 2-1 Town success.

That would be good news for punters backing a match tally of three or more goals (21/20, betway), the first of which is 11/10 courtesy of BetVictor to be struck inside the 28-minute mark.

Stan James price that opener at 5/6 to be scored by one of Robins’ players, William Hill make Nahki Wells 11/2 to be the man to break the deadlock and for the pessimists amongst the home support, former Town favourite Jordan Rhodes is a 4/1 shot at bet365 to come back to haunt Town by putting the visitors 1-0 in front.
