With Norwich City hosting Aston Villa, Sunday’s match at Carrow Road sees a meeting of two sides whose Premier League safety is secured for another season.
The hosts managed to guarantee another season in the top flight a few weeks ago, although the same thing cannot be said of their opponents.
Villa can still technically go down, although given it would take a 17 goal swing for Bolton to move above them in the table the Villans can rest assured they won’t be plying their trade in the Championship come August.
One of their main problems this year has been a lack of goals – only Stoke City have scored fewer, and they haven’t managed to score more than once in thirteen of their last fourteen games.
The Norwich number nine is certainly the man to back given he has scored four goals in his side’s last six home appearances.
Alex McLeish’s men have missed top scorer Darren Bent, whose last game was the goalless draw with Wigan Athletic back in February.
They did however manage to score against fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur last time out, although the fact that Ciaran Clark’s goal owed much to a heavy deflection only further emphasises their attacking crisis.
The Canaries, meanwhile, demonstrated their superior firepower by ending a run of three straight defeats with an impressive 3-3 draw at third-placed Arsenal.
The Norfolk outfit therefore look the safest bets in the goalscorer market.
Paul Lambert’s side actually led the majority of the match against Arsenal at the Emirates after Grant Holt’s 27th minute strike – his fourteenth league goal of the campaign – put them 2-1 up.
The 31-year-old-striker, who just two seasons ago was plying his trade in League One, is second only to Wayne Rooney in the list of English Premier League goal scorers this season, and is even being discussed as a possible member of Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2012 squad.
Holt is 7/5 to score at any time, 5/1 to get the first goal of the game and 7/1 to hit the back of the net at least twice.

Two of these goals have been the Canaries’ first of the game, and punters who use their free £25 bet will see a return of £150 if they correctly back the Norwich skipper to get the scoring underway on Sunday.
Looking back at Norwich’s last few fixtures, Wes Hoolahan is the other name which leaps out of the page.
The Irishman has two goals in his last four starts at Carrow Road and proved his form in front of goal by scoring at the Emirates last week, making him a decent shout at 2/1 to score at any time.
However, with Hoolahan not always guaranteed a starting place, Holt is the man for the occasion.
Recommended bet: Holt to score first @ 5/1
