Billy Sharpe 11/8 to score anytime against Sheffield Wednesday in Fridays Championship derby

Competition: Championship

Market: Billy Sharpe to score anytime

Odds: 11/8 @ Bet 365

In arguably the biggest derby match in the Championship, Sheffield United will be looking to briefly return to the top of the table when they welcome fierce rivals Sheffield Wednesday to Bramall Lane on Friday night.

Starting with Chris Wilders’ Blades, while they may have dropped a handful of points of late, Sheffield United still find themselves in a battle at the top of the table. Sat thrid, a win on Friday night will see them briefly leapfrog both Leeds and Norwich and claim top spot once again. One man to watch for the hosts will be leading goalscorer Billy Sharpe. The veteran striker already has 11 goals to his name and now sits second in the Championships goalscoring charts. Also now finding the net in seven times in his last seven outings, Sharpe should be confident about extending his recent tally.

As for the visitors, while Wednesday may have shown some eye-catching form earlier in the campaign that briefly saw them flirt with the playoff positions, thig’s could not be going any worse for Jos Luhukay’s side. Coming off the back of a 4-0 hammering at home to the Canneries last weekend, the Owls have now lost their last four Championship matches on the bounce and their defensive record will be their biggest concern. Sliding all the way down to 17th, Wednesday have now shipped 12 goals on their losing run.
