Lines on course to add to his tally as Owls defence refuses to rest

Have your say

SHEFFIELD Wednesday’s defence has been breached a mere five times this season at Hillsborough and at home to Aldershot they will be expecting at least a clean sheet, 2.5 (6/4) with Betdaq. Combine that with a win and you can have 15/8 courtesy of Skybet for a win without reply.

It could be a comfortable afternoon for Gary Megson and the Wednesday boss shouldn’t be surprised by an eventual 3-0 outcome, 10/1 with Partybets while bet365 put up 7/1 on a more conservative 2-0 victory, just in case the Shots come to defend.

Chris Lines has found himself in the goals of late and he is 12/1 with Boylesports to notch first and add a third in four appearances.

Sheffield United will find Torquay a tough nut to crack and there’s every reason to believe the game will be quite frugal on the goal front. Bookies think otherwise so 5/4 is available at Totesport for a game of less than three while Stan James rate the Blades a 7/1 shot to edge it by one goal to nil, Ched Evans 5/1 (Victor Chandler) to score it.

Barnsley fans will be hoping Ricardo Vaz Te can be a goal hero again and there’s a decent 10/1 with Paddy Power for him to open the scoring. Peterborough’s gung-ho approach lends itself to goalmouth action and with thirty-seven goals in nine home games, backing four or more has to be considered at 33/20 (Sportingbet)

Billy Sharp will look to build on his brace at Millwall, Betfred quoting 12/5 for the striker to score at any point while Southampton’s Rickie Lambert is always a threat and is Victor Chandler’s 17/4 favourite to score first.
