It’s almost a year to the day since Sheffield Wednesday hosted Millwall last season in a clash that produced five goals and it’s 17/2 at BetVictor for at least as many to be scored again as the pair renew acquaintances today.

It’s 10/11 with Stan James for both teams to contribute to the tally and rate a more realistic total of three or more at 11/10 but the Lions have yet to find the net in the Championship this term so confident Owls supporters might feel that their team can keep a clean sheet, an outcome betway chalk up at 7/4.

At the other end, Skybet price Atdhe Nuhiu at 13/2 to break the deadlock as he did in Wednesday’s opener at QPR and strike partner Chris Maguire is an 8/1 shot via Ladbrokes to grab that opener. Alternatively the duo can be backed at 7/4 (bet365) and 21/10 (BetVictor) to strike at any stage.

Sheffield United boss David Weir feels that new boy Lyle Taylor is starting to find his feet and the summer capture from Falkirk is 13/2 courtesy of bet365 to prove as much by putting United 1-0 up in the Yorkshire derby at Bradford.

Skybet mark 12/5 against Taylor notching at any point while William Hill quote a Chris Porter opener at 7/1 and it’s 11/10 courtesy of BetVictor for the Valley Parade tussle to generate at least three goals.

At Ewood Park, Stan James go 4/5 about both teams scoring as Blackburn and Barnsley lock horns and at 15/2 (Stan James) to strike first, Chris Dagnall is considered the Tykes’ primary goal threat. Also in the Championship, Theo Robinson is 15/2 with bet365 to follow up his midweek opener at Wigan by putting Doncaster 1-0 up at Charlton.

Kieran Agard was on target for Rotherham at Crawley last weekend so he’ll attract cash at 15/2 courtesy of BetVictor to fire the first goal as the Millers entertain Shrewsbury and finally, Marc Richards is Paddy Power’s 9/2 favourite for the opener as Chesterfiield host Southend.
