Remarkably, in Sheffield United’s last eight matches both teams have managed to find the net and that sequence is just 4/5 with Stan James to be extended as the Blades head to Glanford Park to take on Scunthorpe.
If the two sides manage to strike, that increases the likelihood that the match will produce three or more goals (21/20, Winner.com) and it’s 4/5, this time via Skybet, for Nigel Clough’s men to fire the contest’s last goal, just as they have done in six of their last outings.
It’s an identical price of 4/5 (betway) for United to break the deadlock and BetVictor quote 15/2 about that opener coming from Matt Done, who continues to impress in front of goal. Alternatively, William Hill post 11/2 against on-loan Steve Davies notching first and in the same market, Marc McNulty is also 11/2 (Paddy Power).
Sheffield Wednesday have triumphed ‘to nil’ in two of their last three and bet365 make the Owls 11/5 to again combine victory with a clean sheet as they entertain struggling Fulham.
At the other end, Stuart Gray’s troops are 8/13 courtesy of Stan James to fire the opener in a match that’s 8/11 at BetVictor to generate fewer than three goals and bet365 chalk Lewis McGugan up at 10/1 to grab the first, as he did at Blackpool last time out.
Also in the Championship, Connor Sammon bagged Rotherham’s second in last weekend’s crucial win at Huddersfield and the Millers front man is 7/1 (BetVictor) to put his team 1-0 up as they host relegation-threatened Wigan.
Ladbrokes meanwhile, mark 17/20 against any of Steve Evans’s players breaking the deadlock at the New York Stadium.
