THE first English play-off final was disappointing and only watchable from my viewpoint as my two recommendations proved right.

I tipped Stevenage for promotion and under 2.5 goals in their clash against Torquay.

To be fair it always looked like one goals would settle the contest either way but that's not the case with Sunday's League One final between Huddersfield and Peterborough.

This should be a cracker featuring two sides on-form and who pack a massive goal threat.

Incredibly, Huddersfield haven't lost since January when they went out of the FA Cup to Arsenal.

They have won 13 and drawn 10 since then but needed penalties to see off Bournemouth in the semi-finals.

It's form that makes the Terriers slight favourites but they have lost and drawn against goal hungry Peterborough this season.

I've won money all season backing both teams to score and over three and four goals in Peterborough matches this season so I've a soft spot for the Posh who are decent value at 15-8 at Betfred to win in 90 minutes.

Huddersfield are a best 6-4 at Stan James and 5-6 with Blue Square to be promoted while Peterborough are 1-1 at Ladbrokes and Paddy Power to go up.

For first scorer it's hard to ignore Scotland striker Craig Mackail-Smith who bagged his 33rd and 34th goals of the season in the play-off semi-final against MK Dons.

He scored in the home win over Huddersfield and is 15-8 with boylesports to score at anytime or 11-2 with the same firm to break the deadlock.

Peterborough’s 46 league games produced totalled 181 goals so this could be a thriller and there should certainly be over 2.5 goals at 4-5 with bet365. Three at more with Hills is also worth a look at 2-1.

Both teams to score will also be heavily backed and pays 8-13 with Coral.
