Have your say

Sheffield Wednesday might be odds-on (8/11 bet365) to beat Huddersfield today, although it’s worth considering a bet on the Owls winning this Championship match ‘to nil.’

BetVictor have odds of 9/5 about that happening and Carlos Carvalhal’s side have kept three consecutive clean sheets at Hillsborough. Fernando Forestieri has scored in three of his past four games and the Italian is 6/4 with Stan James to score at any stage of the game, while Sky Bet offer 66/1 that he bags a hat-trick against a Terriers team who have managed just six away goals.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United have also been short of away goals this term, with the Blades drawing a blank at Fleetwood and Crewe recently. Therefore, any victory at Walsall might have to be achieved while keeping a clean sheet and that option is available at 4/1 (William Hill). Both teams have scored in three of the Saddlers’ last five matches, with Paddy Power going 4/6 about that happening today, while Che Adams is priced at 9/1 ( to score the opener.

Rotherham fans have had an agonising season to date, with a recent 5-2 reverse against Ipswich at least illustrating the Millers aren’t losing matches without a fight. Both teams to score at Elland Road on Saturday is 10/11 (Ladbrokes), with an away win and both sides finding the net on offer at 17/2

(bet365) should you think Neil Redfearn will land his first victory.

Doncaster Rovers have won three consecutive matches by a 2-0 scoreline so it might seem rude not to back Darren Ferguson’s team at 7/2 (Sky Bet) to beat Rochdale without conceding a goal. BetVictor have 13/1 about another 2-0 victory, with Dale having drawn a blank against Wigan last weekend.

Barnsley have scored in three of their past four matches despite their poor form, with the Tykes having little to lose when they head to Boundary Park. Paddy Power have 4/6 that both sides find the net.

Chesterfield will hope to profit from the fact that Port Vale have an FA Cup replay on Thursday night. The Spireites winning to nil can be backed at 15/4 (William Hill).
