WINLESS in five League I games, Town have fallen away from the promotion pace, drifting to 9/2 with bet365 to go up as a result, and Lee Clark’s side need to snap their frustrating run sooner rather than later if they are to stay in touch with the sides battling for places in the top six.

Town are odds-on at 7/10 with to get back to winning ways tomorrow, while Betdaq quote Exeter at 9/2 to leave with a maximum haul.

Town’s disappointing form means the draw could attract neutral cash at 13/5 with Betfred.

But as Clark’s charges are reasonably strong on their own patch, a shrewder move would be to back outcomes relating to a narrow home triumph, especially as the Grecians have been hit and miss on their travels.

Those in agreement can back Town at 13/5 (bet365) to prevail by one goal or, more specifically, at 6/1 with Ladbrokes to grab the game’s only successful strike.

Stan James rate a more comfortable 2-0 triumph at an identical 6/1 while any scoreline in which Town emerge victorious and under 2.5 goals are scored is covered at odds of 19/10 with Partybets, who also offer 7/5 for Town to prevail and simultaneously keep a clean sheet.

Simplifying that wager a touch; a third consecutive Town home match containing fewer than three goals is a 17/20 chance at Sportingbet and in a potentially tight affair, a decent case can be made for the 10/3 Victor Chandler post against a home win tagged onto the back of a drawn first period.

Finally, in the popular first scorer betting, a midweek goal getter for Clark’s side, Anthony Pilkington, is priced at 8/1 (Boylesports) to break the deadlock.
