Sheffield United haven’t scored twice in a League One match in nine attempts, a run stretching back to October and it’s just 4/9 with Stan James for the Blades to again manage no more than one goal as they take on Preston.

Following Sunday’s three-goal haul at QPR however, some punters might fancy Nigel Clough’s men to take a few more chances and Winner.com make them 8/5 to find the net a couple of times at least while BetVictor post 11/8 against the contest as a whole producing more than 2.5 goals.

It’s 10/11 at bet365 for both sides to contribute to the tally and Stan James offer 5/6 about United netting first, an opener that’s 13/2 (BetVictor) to be struck by Mark McNulty.

Bet365 price Jamal Campbell-Ryce at 12/1 to add to his three goals in two games by breaking the deadlock.

Likewise, neighbours Wednesday haven’t been too prolific of late and BetVictor chalk the Owls up at 13/8 to score just once as they travel to Nottingham Forest. Stuart Gray’s charges are a heftier 2/1 to notch more than once, they’re 13/10 (Stan James) to strike first and at the other end Skybet quote a Wednesday clean sheet at 11/4.

Atdhe Nuhiu meanwhile, has struck for the Owls in his last two outings so he’ll be well backed at 8/1 (Paddy Power) to open the scoring.

At Griffin Park, Ladbrokes offer 4/5 about Brentford and Rotherham producing three or more goals and Millers front man Jordan Bowery is 9/1 courtesy of William Hill to fire the first of those.

Kane Hemmings is 7/1 via bet365 to do likewise for Barnsley as they host rock-bottom Yeovil and William Hill go 7/1 about Theo Robinson giving Doncaster a 1-0 lead at Oldham.

Finally, Eoin Doyle was on target yet again for Chesterfield in midweek and he’s 15/4 with BetVictor to grab the first goal in the Spireites’ home clash with Port Vale.
