Dag & Red to halt another promotion contender

| 24.02.2011

Dagenham and Redbridge took a useful point off high-flying Huddersfield in their latest League One game and they can improve their survival hopes further by halting the progress of another of the title contenders when hosting Bournemouth next.

The Daggers are two points from safety and are now in the middle of a three-game unbeaten run on their own patch.

It is 12/5 that Dagenham and Redbridge beat second-placed Bournemouth, while the draw is the same price and perhaps the more likely result.

Furthermore, betting odds of 5/7 are available on the double chance of Dagenham and Redbridge either winning or drawing.

Bournemouth have won their last two away games and not tasted defeat in any of their last eight fixtures.

This could make 11/10 a tempting price that they secure victory to maintain their pursuit of Brighton at the top of the table.

Huddersfield face another Essex club next as they entertain Leyton Orient in a clash between two of the form teams in the division.

The Terriers are unbeaten in ten games in League One, while Orient have gone nine matches without losing.

However, Huddersfield have won their last three meetings with Orient and are 5/6 in the League One betting to land the spoils again.

Orient are 10/3 to continue their good form with a victory, with the draw available at 12/5.

Elsewhere in League One, an intriguing game is set to take place at Boundary Park as Peterborough travel to Oldham.

No team has scored more goals in their last six games in League One than Peterborough, but Oldham have the best defensive record in the same time period.

Oldham are 7/5 to successfully contain Peterborough to claim the three points, while the visitors are 7/4 to extend their fine scoring streak and secure victory.

Peterborough won the meeting between the pair earlier in the season 5-2.

A £25 stake on Dagenham and Redbridge drawing 0-0 with Bournemouth would return £200. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
