.....talking of Huddersfield Town, they travel to Colchester United today and are proving a fanstastic money maker for "in running" player's brave enough to oppose them. The Terriers have drawn an incredible 13 matches in which they have led, effectively losing 26 points from winning positions, more than twice as many as any other team in the top eight . Those lost points cost Lee Clark his job and replacement Simon Grayson has so far failed to find a solution, losing leads against Rochdale, Stevenage ( two goals) and Bury ( three !) in his five matches in charge.


Two struggling teams meeting at this stage of the season usually means goals and that's what I feel we will see at Gigg Lane this afternoon, with these clubs no slouches in the goals scored and conceded department in any case, with an average of 3.6 and 3.9 respectively in their last ten starts. Bury have not won in ten, are hurtling towards the drop zone and are one of the clubs Wycombe will be looking to drag into the relegation dog fight, that they are already heavily involved in. The visitors have played nine road games since early November and conceded at least two goals in all of them, three of more in five, but have scored more this season than any other side outside the top 8. Bury came back from three down to claim a share of the points in their last home start and will be boosted by the return of striker Shaun Harrad who is prolific at this level,another high scoring thriller looks on the cards.Over 4.5 goals is far from unlikely and offered at 5.50 in a place or two if you are brave enough, this would have won in Bury's last three starts and in four of Wycombe's last six. But for an "official pick" ...1.5 units "over" 2.75 goals 1.87 asian line.

Good Luck.
