Have your say

THE last time Wolves visited Hillsborough they scored after just five minutes and punters expecting another early strike in today’s renewal can back the contest at 7/1 via BetVictor to be the first Championship clash to feature a goal.

For home fans the same firm offer 14/1 about Sheffield Wednesday being the division’s earliest scorers and the clash is 10/11 courtesy of Stan James to produce three or more goals while bet365 make Michail Antontio a 9/1 shot to bag the first of those.

At slightly skinnier odds for the opener is Mamady Sidibe at 7/1 with Ladbrokes or alternatively the pair are 3/1 (bet365) and 23/10 (Paddy Power) respectively to notch at any time and Stan James post 4/5 against both teams finding the net.

Stan James also offer the best price, this time 8/11, for the two sides to get on the scoresheet as Sheffield United head to Notts County’s Meadow Lane where Skybet chalk the pair up at 4/5 to conjure up three or more goals between them.

New boy Jamie Murphy is 8/1 at bet365 to break the deadlock and 12/5 (Skybet) to open his Blades account but Dave Kitson and Nick Blackman are considered more likely scorers, BetVictor rating both men at 11/2 to put Danny Wilson’s troops 1-0 up.

Elsewhere, Iain Hume levelled matters for Doncaster in last week’s clash at Stevenage and he’s 6/1 with Paddy Power to grab the opener this time as Rovers host Leyton Orient and following his brace against Leeds, Barnsley’s Chris Dagnall will attract cash at 17/2 (BetVictor) to net first as the Tykes visit Ipswich.

William Hill quote odds of 8/1 for Rotherham front man Kieran Agard to give the Millers a 1-0 advantage at Oxford.
