Goals have been plentiful in Sheffield United’s recent encounters, their last four in League One yielding a whopping 20 at an average of five a game.

It’s 7/1 at BetVictor for there to be more than 4.5 as the Blades host Leyton Orient and a more modest minimum of three goals at Bramall Lane is 9/10 with Stan James.

Nevertheless, the pair’s recent Carling Cup scrap only produced one goal so a few punters might fancy either a match tally lower than two at 12/5 (Stan James) or bet365’s 3/1 for Nigel Clough’s troops to combine victory with a clean sheet.

At the other end, Michael Higdon’s suspension means that Jamie Murphy and Chris Porter both head Skybet’s first scorer market at 6/1, the same price William Hill mark against Marc McNulty, Jamal Campbell-Ryce meanwhile, is 10/1 (Paddy Power).

At Ashton Gate, it’s 13/20 with betway for both teams to find the net as Bristol City take on Chesterfield. A

lternatively, quote 7/10 for the clash to generate th#ree or more goals and the first of those is 8/5 (bet365) to be struck by a Spireites player.

More precisely, BetVictor chalk in-form front man Eoin Doyle up at 11/2 to fire the game’s opening goal and bet365 quote the Irishman at 6/4 to notch at any time.

In Sunday’s televised encounter, Stan James make Barnsley 4/5 to take a 1-0 lead at home to Bradford and they’re 2/1 at Ladbrokes to keep a clean sheet.

The first goal of the fixture finally, is 5/1 via BetVictor to come from Sam Winnall and the same firm offer 11/2 about a Devante Cole opener.
