Backing Karlan Grant anytime goalscorer odds on the Huddersfield Town forward’s return to Charlton Athletic appeals on Tuesday.
It is his first time back at The Valley after moving to the Terriers midway through last season.
Although that campaign ended in inevitable relegation from the Premier League, Grant’s signing was made with the Championship in mind.
A prolific goalscorer for the Addicks during the first half of last term, he’s doing well for Huddersfield.
Grant has 11 goals in 20 Championship games, so that 55 per cent strike rate commands respect.
Although Charlton got themselves promoted without him, their returning hero is an obvious threat.
Lee Bowyer’s team haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last eight matches. Defending is a problem, then, and shutting out Grant will be difficult.
Six of his 11 goals have come in away matches, so he’s just as dangerous on the road. Playing his old club is just the kind of motivation Grant needs.
Why Grant anytime goalscorer odds are worth a wager
The Terriers have scored in every single game on their travels this season so far. That makes Grant anytime goalscorer odds of 9/5 with Betfair a value punt.
Changing manager is slowly working for Huddersfield. The Cowley brothers still need to address a few things, but Grant isn’t one of them.
As with Charlton, clean sheets are something of a novelty but the Terriers seldom draw a blank.
They lost to the bookmakers’ promotion favourites and local rivals Leeds United last time out. That is no disgrace, however.
Grant goes up against a defence that can clearly be got at on his old stomping ground now.
This is a tale of two strikers in many ways as the Addicks’ Lyle Taylor could return from a knee injury.
While he lacks match fitness and sharpness in front of goal, Grant looks value to net at his old club.
Bet of the Day: 9/5 with Betfair, Karlan Grant anytime goalscorer in Charlton v Huddersfield.
