Sheffield Wednesday have registered two goalless draws in their last five matches and it’s 11/1 via BetVictor for nobody to score as the Owls entertain Crystal Palace. However the trend over the season has been for Wednesday matches to produce plenty of goals, hence why it’s 4/6 with Stan James for both teams to get on the scoresheet at Hillsborough.

Michail Antonio, two goals in his last three and also on target in the reverse fixture at Selhurst Park is is 10/1 with bet365 to score the first goal.Leroy Lita has bagged two since starting a loan spell with Wednesday and he’s 7/1 at BetVictor to break the deadlock while the pair are 10/3 (Coral) and 5/2 (BetVictor) respectively to notch at any time.

Chris Dagnall, seven goals in his last eight appearances, at 7/1 via Skybet will be well backed, alongside Stan James’ 15/2 chance Marlon Harewood, to bag the opener at Bristol City.

Sheffield United’s home clash with Bournemouth yielded eight goals so William Hill’s even money for at least three goals as the pair renew hostilities is tempting.

Ladbrokes rate Dave Kitson at 6/1 to bag his fourth in five by firing the first and bet365 price Jamie Murphy at 17/2 to put the Blades 1-0 up.

Paddy Power mark 11/2 against a Billy Paynter opener as Doncaster entertain Yeovil and it’s 6/1 with Skybet for Jack Lester to strike first as Chesterfield host League Two leaders Gillingham.
