Huddersfield grabbed their first League One victory at the third attempt last week, coming back from 2-1 down to see off Colchester and the Terriers can double their win tally this weekend by beating Wycombe, a result Stan James chalk up at 8/13.
However, at that price a Terriers win is one for the accumulator and it could be more lucrative to keep an eye on prolific Town striker Jordan Rhodes at the Galpharm Stadium. The highly-rated 21 year old has enjoyed a productive week, bagging a brace on Saturday and then firing another two at Cardiff as his side went down 5-3 in extra-time.
Those goals against the Bluebirds suggest that Rhodes is capable of producing the goods against decent opposition and as Huddersfield should be superior to the Chairboys, there seems no reason why he won’t get on the scoresheet again. He’s 11/10 (Boylesports) to score at any time, 5/1 with bet365 to net his third consecutive double while Skybet offer a tasty 4/1 for the Terriers man to open the scoring.
Sixth place Bury catch the eye at 2/1 with Betfred as they take on Charlton but the Addicks’ unbeaten start to the campaign means they’re hard to oppose and a better 2/1 shot at Gigg Lane is therefore Coral’s quote for Shakers marksman Ryan Lowe to continue his hot streak.
Lowe has helped himself to six goals in as many league and cup outings and the only match this season in which he didn’t find the onion bag was the 2-0 home defeat to Carlisle. So the pattern is that if Bury score, Lowe does too and he can do so again against a Charlton team that threw away a two-goal lead against Scunthorpe in their last league match.
