SHEFFIELD United’s run of League One clean sheets came to an end in the victory against Notts County and Stan James offer 5/6 for both teams to again find the net as the Blades entertain Hartlepool.

Another match tally of three or more goals is available with Betdaq at 1.83 (5/6) but the visitors have only struck twice in their last five and they’re 6/5 via Sportingbet to draw a blank at Bramall Lane. Partybets meanwhile, rate Danny Wilson’s men at 7/5 to combine that shutout with a victory.

James Beattie made his first appearance since rejoining the club on Tuesday, enjoying a late cameo and Skybet rate the United front man at 5/1 to fire the last goal of the game. Where the opener is concerned however, Ched Evans is likely to attract more cash, at 9/2 with Paddy Power, although Beattie and Chris Porter, both 5/1 shots at Boylesports, could be given more game time in the absence of the suspended Richard Cresswell.

At Deepdale, Victor Chandler post 5/1 against Ryan Lowe again opening the scoring for Sheffield Wednesday, as they tackle Preston. Skybet make Chris O’Grady 11/2 to put the Owls 1-0 up while the pair are available at a respective 13/8 and 15/8 courtesy of Boylesports, to strike at any stage.

At Oakwell, Craig Davies is available at odds of 6/1 (Betfred) to break the deadlock as Barnsley host Leeds, bet365 chalking the Tykes attacker up at 7/4 to net at any time and Totesport quote Doncaster’s Billy Sharp at 7/1 to grab the opening goal in Rovers’ Championship contest at Watford. At the bottom of League One, Ladbrokes rate a Dean Morgan opener at 8/1 as Chesterfield face Scunthorpe at Glanford Park.
