Goals expected to flow in heavyweight clash at Molineux
Wolves and Sheffield United both prefer to push for wins

Sky Sports Main Event/Sky Sports Football, 5.30pm Saturday
With almost two-thirds of the season completed, Wolves hold an 11-point lead over second-placed Derby.
However, they haven't been at their best in recent weeks and last Saturday's scratchy 1-0 win at Ipswich was their first success in five games.
Wolves earned everyone's respect in the first half of the season which has led to them having problems adjusting to playing against massed defences.
It may suit them to come up against Sheffield United, a team conditioned to play on the front foot and push for three points in every game.
The Blades have been involved in just four league draws this season – only Ipswich have had fewer stalemates – and they are unlikely to change their approach as they battle to get back into the playoff positions.
Chris Wilder's side are unbeaten in their last three away league games, a 2-2 draw at Aston Villa, a 1-1 draw at Derby and a 2-1 triumph at Norwich.
In each of those contests they fearlessly took the game to their opponents and their aggressive, high-tempo style can cause problems for Wolves.
It could also leave them vulnerable at the back against one of the best counter-attacking teams in the division.
Wolves are the Championship's highest scorers and are successful because they can win games in different ways.
They might have a little too much quality for United but it could be a close-run thing and the best way to profit could be to back both teams to score.
Both teams to score
1pt 21-20 Coral, Ladbrokes
Bournemouth loanee Benik Afobe is pushing to make his debut and no fresh injuries are reported.
Paul Coutts is out long-term. Kieron Freeman (knee) also misses out and David Brooks (illness) is a doubt.
Sheffield United have scored in six of their last seven away matches.
