Betting: Three Football League goalscorer selections for the weekend's action

Aston Villa
After two winners at 6/5 and 8/5 in his previous column, our tipster has found three more picks from anytime scorer markets outside the Premier League

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 bet this weekend.

Here are three anytime scorer bets that are worth consideration from the Championship.

Tammy Abraham vs Sheffield United at 6/5 (2.20) with bet365

Tammy Abraham is a short price pick for this weekend but the fact that the Aston Villa striker is above evens for this game is great value.

Abraham is the joint-top scorer in the league, netting 19 Championship goals this season, and his home form is even more impressive.

The striker has scored 12 goals in his last seven Championship appearances at Villa Park and with Sheffield United visiting on Friday, he has a great chance of scoring again.

Despite Sheffield United having one of the best defences in the division, Villa have scored in their last 27 consecutive home games and it is difficult to overlook them here.

Britt Assombalonga vs Leeds United at 2/1 (3.00)

Leeds are in awful form, winning only one of their last six games whilst conceding 14 goals in that period, and the fixtures don't get any easier as they travel to the Riverside to face Middlesbrough.

Boro are likely to frustrate Leeds as Tony Pulis' side seem impossible to break down at times, which could lead to Leeds pushing too many men forward and exposing their defence.

The threat of Britt Assombalonga's pace, power and positioning is perfect as an option off the bench for Pulis in this game as Boro will likely look to strike on the break.

Each of Assombalonga’s last four Championship goals have been as a substitute which shows he is effective in the latter periods of a game - where this match is likely to be won.

Leo Bonatini vs Brentford at 15/8 (2.87)

Bonatini was an incredible Championship goalscorer for the first half of last season and if his confidence returns, he could become a prolific scorer once again this season.

Odds of 15/8 (2.87) seem to be too long for the on-loan Nottingham Forest striker to net against Brentford this weekend, when taking into account his talent and his need to impress at his new club.

Bonatini missed a golden opportunity against Birmingham last weekend but is unlikely to make that same mistake again if he is put into another position like that.

The striker will get back into form as he is a class above most Championship strikers and if he shows some confidence this weekend, he could well break his duck.
