Only league-leaders Leyton Orient have outscored Coventry City this season and one of the best striking partnerships in English football so far in 2013/14 should have enough firepower to see the Sky Blues beat rudderless Sheffield United at cracking odds of 9/10.
The Blades are 13/5 to win their first match since removing David Weir from the Bramall Lane hotseat and the draw is priced up at 12/5.
Wilson and Leon Clarke have score 15 league goals between them so far in this campaign.
Only Orient’s David Mooney can match 21-year-old Wilson’s League One goalscoring prowess this season and the Coventry native has been aided by strike-partner Clarke’s ability to get on the scoresheet when he doesn’t.
In five of Coventry’s last six league matches either Wilson or Clarke has bagged at least a goal and with the division’s worst away team up next both will be eager to add to their impressive tallies here.
No points from Utd’s first five away games led to Weir’s sacking.
The Blades’ opening day victory at home to Notts County seems a long time ago and former Everton and Rangers defensive stalwart Weir paid for his side’s failure to land a win since.
A point against Crawley last time out in the league kept Weir in employment temporarily, but the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy loss against League Two strugglers Hartlepool at Bramall Lane signalled the end of the Scot’s 13-game reign and the unenviable task of turning Utd’s form around falls to caretaker-boss Chris Morgan.
Without their ten-point deduction Coventry would be just outside the League One play-off places.
Don’t let Coventry’s league position fool you – their ten-point penalty at the start of the season was overcome four matches ago and they are quietly making their way up the League One ladder.
The Midlands club have won three of their five games at Northampton’s Sixfields Stadium – their temporary home – and have bagged an impressive 13 goals there, outscoring every other League One club when hosting bar Orient and Bradford.
