Huddersfield were made to work very hard for the points last weekend, Alan Lee’s late winner giving the Terriers a narrow 1-0 triumph against Oldham and it could be just as close as Lee Clark’s side entertain Brentford.
The Bees are solid on the road and their away form might prompt a few neutrals to tackle Stan James’ 11/4 for the spoils to be shared at the Galpharm Stadium, where the pair were inseparable last season as well.
Nevertheless, bookies are confident that Huddersfield can bag a third straight win and punters sharing that belief can back the Terriers at 3/4 with BetVictor to send Ladbrokes’ 4/1 outsiders home empty-handed.
In what is set to be a tight, nip-and-tuck affair, Town are 13/2 courtesy of William Hill, to grab the game’s only goal as they did last weekend but the best bet is another Huddersfield success following on from a drawn first period, available via Boylesports at 18/5.
At the Valley, League One’s top two face-off and following their victory at Sheffield Wednesday a week ago, it’s Charlton that command favouritism at 5/4 with William Hill as they face the Steel City’s other promotion contender Sheffield United.
However, the Blades have been in stunning form of late so they will take some beating and it’s likely that the pair will cancel each other out in South London, where BetVictor mark 5/2 against the two settling for a share of the spoils.
