CUP games aside, Sheffield United’s run of low-scoring games continued in midweek as they played out a goalless draw at Swindon and bet365 post 8/1 against neither side finding the net as the Blades head to MK Dons today.
It’s also 8/13 via Stan James for the match to produce fewer than three goals while Skybet rate the contest at 7/4 to see no more than one goal and it’s 13/5 at BetVictor for Danny Wilson’s men to keep a clean sheet at stadium mk.
At the other end, Nick Blackman has struck five times in his last seven outings in all competitions and he’s 13/2 with bet365 to open the scoring in this one. Scorer of United’s FA Cup winner at Bristol Rovers, Chris Porter, is a 15/2 chance at BetVictor to notch first at Milton Keynes and the pair are 21/10 (Paddy Power) and 11/4 (bet365) respectively to add to their tallies at any point.
Barnsley have been boosted by news that striker Craig Davies could be back in action sooner than expected but today’s contest against Huddersfield comes too early and the Tykes look set to utilise Chris Dagnall in a lone striker role. Dagnall is a 7/1 chance at Ladbrokes to put his team 1-0 up at Oakwell, where Stan James rate a total of three or more goals at 20/21.
The same bookies offer 8/11 about both teams finding the net at the Keepmoat Stadium, where Doncaster’s Billy Paynter is 6/1 with William Hill to fire the opener as Rovers host Bournemouth.
Finally, in League Two, Skybet mark 6/1 against Rotherham’s Alex Revell striking first as the Millers visit Dagenham and Redbridge and BetVictor make a Scott Boden opener 15/2 in Chesterfield away clash with Bristol Rovers.
