Goals anticipated as Scunthorpe travel to free-scoring Watford

| 22.10.2010

Goals should be expected at Vicarage Road as Championship top scorers Watford entertain a Scunthorpe side who are no strangers to finding the net on their travels.

Watford have managed 25 goals in their 12 games, while Scunthorpe have struck ten goals in their six games away from home.

A victory for Watford would enable them to maintain third spot in the table and this is available at 8/11.

Scunthorpe have three wins and three defeats on the road and could prove a big price at 4/1 to take the three points if in the right mood.

Watford won the corresponding fixture 3-0 last season with Danny Graham helping himself to one of the goals.

He is the 6/1 favourite to open the scoring against Scunthorpe and grab his seventh league goal of the season.

A six-game unbeaten run has seen Burnley surge into the play-off places in the Championship and there is every chance that this will continue as they host Reading.

Brian Laws’ team have been formidable at home with 16 points from a possible 18 and they are 10/11 to beat Reading, who have won just one of their six away fixtures.

Reading are 3/1 to take the three points and follow up on their win over Burnley in the FA Cup last season.

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett faces the decision of whether to include new short-term signing Danny Shittu in his team for the arrival of Derby.

Derby have not won at Millwall in their last four attempts and they are 21/10 to end this sequence.

Meanwhile, Millwall are 13/10 to emerge victorious and claim just a second victory in ten fixtures, alongside ending Derby’s six-game unbeaten run in the Championship.

Watford are currently 16/1 to win the Championship, while Burnley are slightly more fancied at 12/1. See the full Championship winners betting odds market.
