Sheffield have lost two of their opening three League One matches, but as both of those defeats came on the road, Gary Megson will hope his side can turn things around back on home soil, as they host Notts County.
Bookies are confident that the Owls can land their second maximum haul of the campaign, Partybets pricing them at even money to come out on top against the Magpies, who are 3/1 outsiders with Boylesports.
Totesport chalk 12/5 against the draw and it’s 9/1 (Sportingbet) to finish goalless at Hillsborough, where Betfred offer 9/2 for both halves to finish all square but Wednesday supporters will be hoping for a more positive result than that.
They’re 11/4 via bet365 to see their side shade it by a one-goal margin while Stan James quote Megson’s troops at 13/2 to record a 1-0 victory and Paddy Power offer 4/1 for the Owls to emerge triumphant despite going in on level terms at the break.
Buoyant Sheffield United managed to preserve their hundred percent record in midweek, battling back from two goals down to beat Walsall 3-2 and they’re 7/5 courtesy of Skybet to make it four wins from four as they head to Tranmere.
Rovers, underdogs at 2/1 (Victor Chandler), are in the top six having racked up a couple of victories so far and some might fancy Ladbrokes’ 12/5 for the spoils to be shared at Prenton Park.
However, the hosts will be deflated after conceding a late goal to lose in a midweek clash that saw two of their key players dismissed and the Blades are 17/2 (Totesport) to capitalise by finishing on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline.
Yet to pick up a point, Doncaster prop up the Championship table and things aren’t expected to improve in the short term for Rovers, who are as high as 5.0 (4/1) with Betdaq to overcome high-flying Derby County at Pride Park. A draw for Sean O’Driscoll’s charges would help stop the rot and Skybet quote them at 11/4 to get off the mark with a stalemate while it’s 7/1 (Stan James) to end one-each.
Barnsley too have found the going tough and like Doncaster, they’re huge outsiders, at 11/2 with Paddy Power, as they visit Reading. Bet365 post 3/1 against a stalemate at the Madejski Stadium and in the handicaps, the Tykes are given a goal start by Sportingbet at 5/4.
With just one point from three outings, Chesterfield are expected to return from MK Dons empty-handed, Betdaq rating them at 5.0 (4/1) to secure all three points and in League Two, early pacesetters Rotherham are odds-on at 8/11 with Totesport to continue their impressive winning run as they entertain Barnet.
