Six of Sheffield United’s last seven matches have produced three or more goals yet it’s odds-on at 8/11 with Stan James for the Blades’ clash with Fleetwood to generate fewer than three, BetVictor quoting odds of 11/10 for the sides to net at least three times between them.

Those perusing the statistics will also note that a wager on both teams to get on the scoresheet would’ve yielded a profit in United’s last seven assignments. That sequence is 11/10 (Ladbrokes) to be extended at Bramall Lane, where make Nigel Clough’s troops 8/15 to break the deadlock.

More accurately, Matt Done’s tally of five goals in his seven appearances since joining the club lends appeal to bet365’s 5/1 about him opening the scoring, BetVictor quote Mark McNulty at a slightly skinnier 19/4 in the same market and punters looking for heftier prices can back Chris Basham at 18/1 (Paddy Power) to strike first.

Sheffield Wednesday have struggled for goals all season but they’ve fared a touch better in that department of late and should be able to notch at least a couple of times at beleaguered Blackpool, an outcome betway offer at 9/10.

The Owls are 21/10 at Skybet to combine victory with a clean sheet at Bloomfield Road and at the other end they’re 4/7 with Stan James to be the team responsible for the game’s opening goal. Atdhe Nuhiu and Will Keane meanwhile, are 6/1 (BetVictor) and 13/2 (bet365) respectively to put Wednesday 1-0 in front.

Also in the Championship, Rotherham’s Danny Ward has struck in each of his last two games and the Millers front man is a generous 10/1 courtesy of William Hill to open the scoring as Steve Evans’s charges head to Huddersfield.

Back in League One, Barnsley’s midweek match winner George Waring is 13/2 at bet365 to fire the first goal in the Tykes’ home clash against Walsall and BetVictor chalk Curtis Main up at 13/2 to do likewise for Doncaster at Gillingham.
