Football League: Blunt Blades won't carve Donny open

Danny Wilson has so far failed to find the right striker

Christian Crowther previews some of the tastiest treats presented by Tuesday's Football League fixtures...

"Four of Sheffield United's six League One matches have finished 1-1, with one of the others also returning under 2.5 goals."

Recommended Bet: Back under 2.5 goals @ 2.0811/10

Sheffield United v Doncaster, Tuesday 19:45, Match Odds: Sheffield United 1.824/5, Doncaster 4.94/1, The Draw 3.953/1
With Yorkshire pride and precious points at stake, both teams will be desperate not to lose this one. A concept which has been evident in the fact three out of the last four meetings have ended level. Sheffield United's desire to achieve automatic promotion at the second attempt has so far been tempered by their inability to land the final blow. Four of United's six League One matches have finished 1-1, with one of the others also returning under 2.5 goals. The absence of a prolific striker post-Ched Evans has never been more evident.
Recommended Bet: Back under 2.5 goals @ 2.0811/10

MK Dons v Notts County, Tuesday 19:45, Match Odds: MK Dons 1.9420/21, Notts County 4.57/2, The Draw 3.7511/4
Notts County fans will be only too aware that they have only beaten their hosts once in eight league meetings, and have lost all four at stadiummk. It's certainly the Dons home form which has kept the title hopefuls in touching distance of the summit this season, with three wins from three without conceding a goal constrasting with one draw and two losses on the road. The visit of in-form County will certainly provide their tautest home test to date. The Magpies have a highly competitive squad by League One standards, and currently sit second having gone unbeaten in three away trips, winning two.
Recommended Bet: Back the draw @ 3.7511/4

Gillingham v Southend, Tuesday 19:45, Match Odds: Gillingham 2.0621/20, Southend 3.953/1, The Draw 3.711/4
Gillingham are the surprise pacesetters in England's fourth tier after a superb start to the season which has seen them go unbeaten in six, winning five. Their visitors to Priestfield are in form though, having hit back from a sticky start by recording three straight wins in the league, most notably the weekend's 3-1 away win over last season's play-off finalists Cheltenham. The Gills ought to be wary of the Seasiders recent resurgence too after conceding the league double to them last season, including a 2-1 defeat in their home fixture.
Recommended Bet: Southend to beat Gillingham @ 3.953/1
