Henderson to ease Blades’ drop fears

Have your say

Sheffield United and Middlesbrough don’t exactly possess the Championship’s meanest defences and there’s a strong chance that the pair will both find the net as they face off at Bramall Lane.

Partybets offer 3/4 for the two to get on the scoresheet and it’s 5/4 with Betdaq for the crucial contest to produce at least three goals.

The Blades will obviously hope that they’re responsible for the bulk of the goals and they’re 13/8 courtesy of Sportingbet to strike at least twice while Ladbrokes price Darius Henderson at 7/1 to grab the game’s first and Paddy Power rate the powerful centre-forward at 21/10 to notch at any point.

Also at 7/1 for the opener, this time with Victor Chandler is Henderson’s likely strike partner Ched Evans and the Welshman is a 7/4 chance at Betfred to add to his tally at any time in the clash.

Tommy Miller’s double helped Sheffield Wednesday to a 4-0 victory against Tranmere on Tuesday and bet365 price the Owls midfielder at as high as 18/1 to break the deadlock again as Gary Megson’s troops head to league leaders Brighton. Gary Madine and Neil Mellor were also on target in midweek and they’re available at 10/1 and 15/2 respectively with Paddy Power and William Hill, to net first at the Withdean Stadium.

Marlon Harewood has struck three times in his last four appearances for Barnsley and Coral mark 6/1 against him opening the scoring as the Tykes entertain Bristol City at Oakwell where a Harewood goal at any stage is available at 13/8 with Totesport.

Stan James price Doncaster Rovers at 12/1 to take a 1-0 lead against Cardiff via Welsh international Brain Stock.
