Bookies tip ailing Ched for goal pick-me-up

Have your say

Sheffield United have failed to score in three of their last four but Partybets fancy them to find the net against Millwall, pricing them at 1/3 to score. Nevertheless, bookies still fancy goals to be at a premium at United, where Betdaq offer 1.75 (3/4) for a total lower than 2.5. Ched Evans missed out with illness last weekend and if he makes a comeback today he’ll start as a 13/2 chance with Betfred to break the deadlock.

Paddy Power offer the Welshman at 2/1 to notch at any stage while Marcus Bent and Richard Cresswell who could form a three-strong attack for the Blades, are 17/2 (bet365) and 8/1 (Totesport) respectively to open the scoring.

Clinton Morrison and Neil Mellor masterminded a Sheffield Wednesday comeback last Saturday and the pair are both 7/1 with 888Sport to give the Owls a 1-0 lead as they travel to Rochdale.

Coral chalk the duo up at 2/1 to score at some point and Gary Madine is 13/2 courtesy of William Hill, to notch first at Spotland, where Stan James quote the clash at 4/5 to generate at least three goals.

Jacob Mellis bagged a consolation for Barnsley at Leicester last week and Ladbrokes make the on-loan youngster 10/1 to fire the opener as the Tykes host Swansea.

Also in the Championship, Billy Sharp is a 5/1 shot with Victor Chandler to add to his Doncaster tally with the opener as Rovers face Portsmouth.

Dropping into League Two, as ever it’s Adam Le Fondre bookies fear most in terms of opening the scoring for Rotherham, the Millers striker is 5/1 at Coral as they visit Oxford.
