Have your say

Sheffield United have finally got back amongst the goals in the past week, notching twice in each of their last couple of matches and they are 6/5 courtesy of bet365 to bag at least another two as they visit Portsmouth.

Also at 6/5, this time with Stan James, is a match tally of three or more goals while BetVictor offer 39/40 about both teams finding the net and confident travelling supporters can head in

the other direction by backing the Blades at 6/4 (Paddy Power) to keep a clean sheet.

At the other end, a flurry of bets on Ladbrokes’ 5/1 shot Dave Kitson to open the scoring against his former club is likely following the veteran’s goals against both Swindon andBrentford. BetVictor post 13/8 against Kitson finding the net at any stage, Chris Porter is 21/

10 via bet365 to get on the score sheet at some point and Coral quote him at 6/1 to break the deadlock.

Sheffield Wednesday failed to score at Blackpool on Tuesday after a run of five games without drawing a blank but they’re fancied to get back amongst the goals at home to Ipswich, William Hill chalking them up at 11/8 to strike twice or more.

It’s an enticing 10/11 (Stan James) for both teams to find the net at Hillsborough, where in-form Jermaine Johnson is 9/1 with bet365 to put the Owls 1-0 in front. Alternatively, BetVictor make Steve Howard 7/1 to open his Wednesday account with the first and for

punters looking for heftier odds, Stan James mark 14/1 against a Giles Coke opener.

At the City Ground, Chris O’Grady is a 9/1 shot at bet365 to fire the opener for Barnsley as they tackle Nottingham Forest and after his double at Crewe last weekend, Doncaster’s Billy Paynter will be well backed at 4/1 with Skybet to score first as Rovers entertain Notts


The same firm offer odds of 6/1 for Kieran Agard to bag his third in three by opening the scoring for Rotherham at Plymouth and finally, bet365 rate Jay O’Shea at 17/2 to hand Chesterfield a 1-0 lead at Fleetwood.
