Sheffield United’s unbeaten record was accounted for in pretty emphatic fashion in midweek as the Blades went down 3-0 at home to Huddersfield but Danny Wilson’s men are odds-on at 17/20 with Victor Chandler to bounce back immediately by getting the better of Colchester at Bramall Lane.
Ladbrokes price another defeat for United at 7/2 and it’s 5/2 (Stan James) to finish all square. But with Wilson refusing to press the panic button following Tuesday’s reverse, the consensus in the Blades camp is that it was simply a blip. They’re fancied to get back to winning ways. Bet365 post 11/4 against a United triumph by a one-goal margin and it’s 15/2 with Skybet for a 2-1 home win.
Gary Megson couldn’t put a positive spin on Sheffield Wednesday’s humiliating 5-1 hammering at Stevenage, a result that means the Owls remain winless on the road,.
But bookies tentatively believe Wednesday can put an end to their away day woes despite Tuesday’s horror show, Sportingbet making them narrow favourites at 6/4 as they head to Yeovil.
Boylesports consider the Glovers to be 19/10 underdogs at Huish Park, where it’s 3.4 (12/5) via Betdaq to finish all square and 6/1 (Betfred) to end one-apiece.
Chesterfield have recovered from a poor start to card back-to-back wins and they’re 6/4 with Victor Chandler to make it three in ar ow as they entertain Carlisle.
In the Championship, Barnsley have drawn their last couple and Ladbrokes make them 23/10 to share the spoils once again as they lock horns with Watford at Oakwell.
Doncaster by contrast, are huge outsiders at 5/1 (Skybet) ahead of their trip to Reading and Stan James chalk 14/5 against a stalemate at the Madejski Stadium.
Finally, Rotherham are slight underdogs at 21/10 with bet365 to win at Torquay.
