Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) to score v Newcastle

As Zaha’s pantomime-villain status grows, so his performances improve.

Crystal Palace’s talisman has both scored and been carded in three of his four appearances this season, including when he returned from injury to net brilliantly at Huddersfield last Saturday.

Newcastle are sure to test his temperament again, but – given he scored four goals in his last three matches at Selhurst Park last season – he is an attractive price to respond in the right way.

The visitors have only managed away clean sheets at Swansea, Stoke and Cardiff since returning to the Premier League last season.

Billy Sharp (Sheffield United) to score v Preston

Both Sharp and David McGoldrick were rested for Wednesday’s 0-0 draw with Birmingham, and – having backed the latter to score at a bigger price in that game – I’m plumping for the former to return and score now that they are both available at 13/8.

Sharp has netted in each of his three starts at Bramall lane this season, and will spearhead a team that have scored seven goals in three home league games before that midweek stalemate.

Preston are on a bad run, conceding eight goals in their last three matches, so chances are bound to come for Sharp.

Lee Angol (Shrewsbury) to score v Scunthorpe

Shrewsbury have fired the sixth-most shots in League One this season, but it is only when Angol has started that they have managed to score more than once in a match.

The striker, who played and scored in August’s 3-2 defeat at Luton (admittedly, a freak goal) and last week’s 2-0 victory over Southend, is a cracking bet to exploit Scunthorpe’s porous defence.

Saturday’s hosts have conceded a whopping 17 goals in their last six league games, and six in their two under Staurt McCall. They have also conceded the most shots on target in the division, so that bad record is sustainable. 

Byron Moore (Bury) to score v Carlisle

Moore was included in the League Two Team of the Week after netting a brace in his first start of the season in Bury’s 2-1 win at Swindon last week.

And – given that his in-form side have scored seven goals in their last two home matches, and 11 in four in the league overall – this is an unbelievable price for the striker to net against Carlisle.

Saturday’s visitors lost 2-0 at home to Tranmere last week, while only four teams have conceded more shots on goal in League Two.
