JUST five points adrift of the top six with fifteen matches to play, Town still possess an outside chance of gate-crashing the play-offs, hence why they are only 6/1 with Betdaq to gain promotion to the Championship.

The Terriers should improve their position in that department tomorrow by following up their morale-boosting victory over Leeds with another three-point haul at struggling Crewe and while most bookies concur, the good news for punters is that Betfred offer a Town success at as high as 5/4; odds that don’t reflect the league positions of the two.

The relegation-threatened hosts are quoted as high as 21/10 by Jenningsbet, but more likely to tempt neutral punters, given the Alex’s slightly improved home form, is Coral’s 5/2 for the spoils to be shared. The best bets at Gresty Road, however, remain those relating to positive outcomes in favour of Lee Clark’s men, including Sportingbet’s 8/1 for a 2-1 away triumph, Blue Square’s 10/3 for Town to edge it by a one-goal margin and the 13/5 that Boylesports post against Huddersfield taking a lead in at both half-time and the final whistle.

As it’s a 25/1 shot with Victor Chandler, meanwhile, only the ambitious will back a repeat of the 3-2 scoreline from the pair’s November clash at the Galpharm Stadium.

For the cautious, Sportingbet make Clark’s charges 4/11 to merely avoid defeat, Betfred price a 1-1 scoreline at 6/1 and Coral quote odds of 14/1 for the sides to be level as the full-time whistle sounds, despite the Alex having possessed a lead at the interval.

Finally, in terms of goals, Crewe’s poor defensive record points to a match tally of three or more (5/6, Betdaq) and the first of those is a chunky 13/2 with Bet365 to arrive courtesy of loan striker Lukas Jutkiewicz.
