Following a run of just one goal in seven matches, Sheffield Wednesday have struck four times in their last two outings and the Owls are 11/10 with Stan James to continue the trend by notching twice as they welcome Wolves to Hillsborough.

The visitors have conceded 16 times in their last five fixtures so a tally of three for Stuart Gray’s men might attract cash at 15/4 via BetVictor and there could also be market support for Winner.com’s even money about the match generating three or more goals.

Alternatively, it’s 3/4 at betway for both sides to get on the scoresheet while Wednesday can be backed at 4/5 (Stan James) to be the first team to do so and bet365 quote Stevie May at 6/1 to bag that opening goal.

Atdhe Nuhiu is a slightly skinnier 5/1 via BetVictor to break the deadlock and Kieran Lee, who took just three minutes to net at Blackburn, is 18/1 at Skybet to again give the Owls a 1-0 lead.

Rotherham have been short of goals of late but they’re a reassuringly slender 1/3 courtesy of William Hill to get on the scoresheet against Nottingham Forest at the New York Stadium, where bet365 price Alex Revell at 7/1 to fire the opener.

Sheffield United struck three times in the FA Cup tie against Plymouth but bookies don’t expect them to repeat the feat at Fleetwood, BetVictor rating the Blades at 17/4 to bag another three goal haul.

Stan James chalk them up at a skinnier 13/10 to strike at least twice and it’s 5/6 with Ladbrokes for them to score first at the Highbury Stadium.

That opener is 13/2 (bet365) to come from Jose Baxter and in the same market, Marc McNulty is an 11/2 chance.

Elsewhere, Paddy Power post 5/1 against Theo Robinson handing Doncaster a 1-0 advantage against Gillingham, Leroy Lita is 7/1 (bet365) to do likewise for Barnsley at Walsall and Skybet go 7/2 about Eoin Doyle opening the scoring as Chesterfield entertain Bradford.
