Blackpool v Huddersfield, Monday 19:45, Sky Sports 1, Match Odds: Blackpool 1.645/8, Huddersfield 6.05/1, The Draw 4.47/2
Blackpool have started this season with the same kind of intensity as they finished the last, recording four wins from their opening six Championship fixtures.
Ian Holloway is proving very adept at negotiating this most difficult of leagues and after coming agonisingly close to a bounce-back promotion last term, his Seasiders look every bit poised to be authentic challengers again in 2012/13.
Ipswich got their tractor stuck firmly in the Bloomfield Road mud four games ago as Holloway's free-flowing team laid a marker down to the rest of the league with a thrilling 6-0 win.
Despite failing to win their next two on the road, the Tangerines last game back on home soil produced another emphatic display as they put a decent looking Middlesbrough to the sword with a 4-1 victory.
Play-offs aside, you have to go back 11 games before you find a Blackpool home loss in the Championship, a defeat to the West Ham side who would deny them once again in the play-off final at Wembley.
Opponents Huddersfield should also be given credit for the way they have adapted to their surroundings though, going five games unbeaten since a harsh narrow opening day defeat to promotion hopefuls Cardiff.
The loss of Jordan Rhodes will have been felt in the Terriers squad, but the Yorkshire side have certainly not shown too much ill-effect as yet, going on to win two out of their three since the Scotland star's departure.
Young winger Tom Ince gave everyone a boost at the club this summer by deciding to stay in order to try and help his team get promoted, when plenty of the Premier League's big sharks were circling around the 20-year-old.
The son of former Manchester United and Liverpool legend Paul, Ince currently sits joint-second in the Championship top scorer charts, repaying the faith shown in him by
Holloway. He has scored six goals in six league starts, including bagging two in his last two.
Over 3.5 goals
Blackpool tend to border on irresistible at home in the league as their swollen goals for column would suggest.
The Tangerines have squeezed no fewer than twelve goals into the onion bag in their last three outings at Bloomfield Road.
In a similar vein, visitors Huddersfield have scored five goals in their last two away games, which have both spilled over the 3.5 total goals mark.
Best Bet: Back Ince to score @ 2.962/1
Other Recommended Bet: Back over 3.5 goals @ 2.89/5
