Sheffield Wednesday have failed to score in their last couple but who better for them to end that sequence against than Sheffield United?

The Owls are just 3/10 with Partybets to score while the Blades are 2/5 via the same firm to find the net.

Ladbrokes chalk 8/13 against both sets of supporters having a goal to cheer.

It’s 5/6 courtesy of Blue Square for the Hillsborough contest to generate three or more goals.

However, if you fancy at least as many goals as there were in the 2-2 draw at Bramall Lane back in October, then braver punters might fancy a match tally of at least four goals at 9/4 (Stan James).

Gary Madine bagged a late leveller for Wednesday in that last meeting and he’s Paddy Power’s 5/1 favourite for the first goal on this occasion. Alternatively, Skybet quote a Ryan Lowe opener at 13/2 and Coral offer the duo at 11/8 and 2/1 respectively to register at any stage. United’s in-form front man Ched Evans is 6/1 with William Hill to put Danny Wilson’s men 1-0 up. Paddy Power mark 9/5 against the Welsh striker notching at any time and a Richard Cresswell opener is available with BetVictor at 8/1.
