Blades want clean sheet against Rochdale ... but don’t bet on it!

Have your say

TORQUAY managed to breach the Sheffield United defence twice last week so Danny Wilson will be looking to shore things up at home against Rochdale with a strong win without reply (15/8, Victor Chandler).

However, a clean sheet for the Blades, 6/4 with Skybet, does not stand out due to the fact that Torquay, Exeter and Sheffield Wednesday have all netted two or more at Bramall Lane recently and Rochdale have scored on four consecutive away trips.

Better then would be taking Boylesports’ 8/11 on both teams to score and Sheffield United to come out as victors by a solitary goal, chalked up at 11/4 by bet365.

Ched Evans helped himself to a brace last week; he’s 9/2 at Paddy Power to grab the opener.

Sheffield Wednesday have a habit of winning by the odd goal on the road and can win by one as they head to Oldham, a 17/5 chance with Totesport.

A repeat of last season’s 3-2 thriller is 28/1 with Betfred and Ryan Lowe, scorer of two in his last three outings, is 7.5 (13/2) to grab the last of the game, with Betdaq.

Ipswich have shipped 13 in their last four league games on the road so Barnsley are eager to get in on the goals; Sportingbet make them 10/3 to help themselves to three or more. Doncaster will find the going tough at St Andrews where Birmingham are 5/4 (Partybets) to keep a clean sheet but Billy Sharp is 12/5 with Ladbrokes to give Rovers’ fans something to cheer by getting on the scoresheet.

At Adams Park, Craig Westcarr is 7/1 with Boylesports to open the scoring for Chesterfield against Wycombe and, in League Two, leaky Rotherham and equally generous Hereford are 9/4 (Stan James) to produce four or more goals.
