SHEFFIELD United are League One’s top scorers, having averaged almost two goals per game, and with 47 of their 78 strikes having come at Bramall Lane, the Blades are expected to add to their tally today at home to Bournemouth.

Wednesday are no attacking slouches but as they visit Huddersfield, United are expected by BetVictor to outscore the Owls, Danny Wilson’s men coming in at 8/11 to bag more goals than Wednesday, who are 13/5 outsiders, and BetVictor price the pair at 3/1 to tie in the scoring stakes.

Coral have the Blades at 12/5 to strike at least three times and unsurprisingly Ched Evans is Boylesports’ 7/2 favourite to net first.

Evans is 10/11 via Paddy Power to add to his tally at any point while Richard Cresswell and Lee Williamson are 6/1 and 12/1 respectively, courtesy of bet365, to put Wilson’s team 1-0 up.

At the Galpharm Stadium, Ladbrokes make Gary Madine 11/2 to continue his recent run of form by breaking the deadlock for the Owls, and he is 7/4 at William Hill to grab his sixth in seven games at any stage.

BSkybet quote Nile Ranger at 11/4 to open his Wednesday account at any time. He is 8/1 with the same firm to open the scoring.

BetVictor price Craig Westcarr at 17/2 in the first scorer betting as Chesterfield visit Walsall.

Blue Square rate Doncaster’s Frederic Piquionne at 10/1 in the same market, ahead of Rovers’ trip to Leicester, where a Fabien Robert opener is a slightly chunkier 14/1 (Stan James).
