With so much football going on across England we take a look at the Football League to find three goalscorer who could boost your potential winnings

With another packed few days of action, the Football League is a great place to look at the anytime goalscorer market if you're having a flutter this weekend.

Here are three anytime scorer bets that are worth consideration from the Championship, League One and Two

David McGoldrick (vs Bolton) at 6/5 (2.20) with bet365

Sheffield United are a team packed full of goals and Bolton have one of the leakiest defences in the league, so this represents a great chance for David McGoldrick to get on the scoresheet.

The Blades are looking like running away with this game and McGoldrick certainly seems to be the player most likely to score compared to the other forward options.

Billy Sharp's knack of being in the right place at the right time won't be as useful against a Bolton side who sit deep and mark tightly and Gary Madine's height will be nullified as Bolton win more aerial duels than any other team in the division. Therefore, it may take something different to find the back of the net which is exactly what the Irish striker provides.

McGoldrick is tricky and can shoot from range, Sheffield United are likely to pepper Bolton's box with low crosses and if one of them isn't cleared far enough that is where McGoldrick will be and he can capitalise on that better than anyone else in Chris Wilder's side. At 6/5 (2.20) with bet365, he looks decent value to score anytime.

James Collins (vs Shrewsbury) at 8/5 (2.60) with bet365

Two teams in contrasting form face each other this weekend and it's tough to believe that James Collins should be as long as 8/5 (2.60) with bet365 to find the net on Saturday.

Shrewsbury's defence looked awful as they lost to Bradford City 4-3 midweek and their morale must have taken a hit after clawing back a two-goal deficit only to concede a 96th-minute winner.

On top of this Luton have scored eight goals in their last three games and James Collins is a man bang in-form for the Hatters. The striker has scored nine of Luton’s last 16 league goals, including six of their last nine.

Odds of 8/5 (2.60) about Collins extending his impressive scoring run can't be ignored.

Jay O'Shea (vs Crawley) at 13/8 (2.63) with bet365

Jay O'Shea to score against Crawley at 13/8 (2.62) looks to be another great price.

O’Shea has scored 12 goals in League Two this season, that's already three more than he has ever managed in a single Football League season.

The 30-year-old has also scored in each of his last three games. Having never scored in four consecutive league games in his career in English football, that could act as extra motivation this weekend.

Bury's home form is some of the best in the country. The Shakers are unbeaten at home in their last 10 league games scoring 29 goals in those games, their longest unbeaten home run since April 2014.

With the club averaging 2.9 goals a game at home in their last 10 outings and Crawley not the best of opposition, odds of 13/8 (2.62) look very tempting for Bury's top scorer to find the back of the net again this weekend.
