The last time Sheffield Wednesday and Carlisle met, at Brunton Park back in October, there were five goals and Stan James offer odds of 9/2 for the two sides to produce at least as many as they renew hostilities at Hillsborough.

A more modest tally of three or more is available at 8/11 with Skybet.

Owls frontman Gary Madine will be hoping for better fortunes as he squares up to his former club again. The 21-year-old was sent off in the reverse fixture but Ladbrokes chalk 4/1 against him making amends by breaking the deadlock on this occasion and William Hill offer 10/11 for Madine to score at any stage.

The loss of Ched Evans will be a huge blow for Sheffield United given he has bagged 35 goals this term. In his absence Chris Porter, is 13/2 in Boylesports’ first-scorer betting as the Blades head to MK Dons.

Porter is 2/1 via Coral to get on the scoresheet, while Michael Doyle and Lee Williamson are 28/1 (Ladbrokes) and 16/1 (bet365) respectively to put United 1-0 in front.
