Bookies back against goal fest as Addicks head to Hillsborough



Have your say

SHEFFIELD Wednesday kept only their second league clean sheet of the campaign last weekend at Oakwell and Ladbrokes make the Owls 12/5 to chalk up another against Charlton Athletic.

Punters might also consider Stan James’ offer of 4/5 predicting it will produce fewer than three goals and BetVictor quote 23/20 for it not to be a match in which both teams get on the scoresheet.

For Wednesday, last weekend’s match winner Chris O’Grady is a 13/2 chance at Paddy Power to break the deadlock again while he’s also available at 2/1 (bet365) to find the net at any point. Alternatively, a Michail Antonio opener is a 10/1 shot courtesy of Stan James and Skybet mark identical odds against Jermaine Johnson.

Neither side could trouble the score-sheet at Bramall Lane last weekend and BetVictor rate Sheffield United’s trip to Crawley Town to also finish goalless. However, Richie Barker’s side haven’t played out a 0-0 draw this season so there are likely to be a few goals at the Broadfield Stadium, where Stan James quote even money for tally of three or more.

Blades pair Nick Blackman and Shaun Miller are 6/1 and 13/2 respectively at bet365 to bag the first of those.

Also in League One, Chris Brown snatched Doncaster Rovers’ consolation goal in the heavy 4-1 home reverse against Coventry and he’s 7/1 (bet365) to put Rovers 1-0 up on this occasion as they entertain fellow high-flyers MK Dons.

Barnsley’s Craig Davies is a 15/2 chance in the first scorer market as the Tykes make the trip to Millwall and finally, in League Two, bet365 post 11/2 against an Alex Revell opener for Rotherham at Bristol Rovers.
