There were four goals, shared equally, when Sheffield Wednesday went to Pride Park on the opening day and as the Owls face Derby again, this time at Hillsborough, Coral offer odds of 11/4 for the two sides to conjure up another tally of at least four.

More conservative punters can opt instead for a total of three or more at even money with William Hill while Stan James post 4/5 against both teams finding the net and Wednesday are 10/11 courtesy of Paddy Power to be the team that breaks the deadlock.

That opener is 15/2 (Betvictor) to be struck by Gary Madine, who is 9/4 via Bet365 to notch at any time and a Leroy Lita opener is a 6/1 chance at Betvictor. Paddy Power price the new boy at 17/10 to grab a goal at any point.

Sheffield United have kept four consecutive clean sheets against Shrewsbury and they’re 17/2 with Skybet to manage another shutout as the two teams lock horns in a clash that’s 4/6 via Stan James to produce fewer than three goals.

At the other end, Dave Kitson is again strongly fancied to put the Blades 1-0 up, Bet365 chalking the United front man up at 11/2 and William price Jamie Murphy at 8/1 to open the scoring.

For pessimists meanwhile, the match winner for Danny Wilson’s side when the teams met at Bramall Lane, David McAllister, has since moved to Shrewsbury and he’s 18/1 (Bet365) to haunt United by grabbing the first.

Elsewhere, Bet365 make Chris Dagnall 9/1 to start the scoring for Barnsley at Middlesbrough and Paddy Power mark 11/2 against a Chris Brown opener as Doncaster entertain Walsall. In League Two Alex Revell is 6/1 courtesy of Skybet to hand Rotherham a 1-0 advantage at Burton and Chesterfield’s Armand Gnanduillet is 6/1 (William Hill) to do likewise against Wimbledon.
