Bristol City vs Preston: Nahki Wells to Score Anytime - 2/1

Bristol City takes on Preston North End at Ashton Gate on Saturday, with both sides looking for a positive start to the campaign following 14th and 12th-placed finishes last season.

Nahki Wells is a player to look out for here, with the 33-year-old Bermuda International being a frequent danger man for the Robins last campaign, having scored 11 goals and created six assists in 45 appearances last season.

Watford vs QPR: Rhys Healey to Score Anytime - 2/1

Watford and QPR go head to head on Saturday at Vicarage Road, with the home side expecting to have a much more promising campaign than that which they endured in 2022/23.

Valerian Ismael will be hoping that summer signing Rhys Healey can get off the mark on his debut. The 28-year-old only managed to play four games in Ligue 1 for Toulouse last season due to a cruciate ligament rupture, but, he did score twice across these four matches.

Prior to last season, Healey played a vital role in helping Toulouse back to France’s top flight, as the ex-MK Dons man scored 20 goals across in 32 Ligue 2 appearances.

Bolton vs Lincoln City: Dion Charles to Score Anytime - 6/4

Bolton Wanderers will be looking for a strong start to the 2023/24 season following their play-off heartache last season - the Trotters host a Lincoln City side that finished 11th last time out.

Dion Charles was Bolton’s biggest goal threat last season, as the 27-year-old Northern Ireland international scored 21 times across all competitions. Interestingly, Charles scored the opening goal in a 2-0 win over the Imps last October and will be looking to do the same again.

Reading vs Peterborough: Jonson Clarke-Harris to Score Anytime - 13/8

Reading takes on Peterborough United at the Select Car Leasing Stadium on Saturday in what should be an intriguing contest.

The Royals only have 15 first-team players on their books and are now under the management of ex-Southampton coach, Ruben Selles; while Peterborough have made wholesale changes following their dismal play-off semi-finals second-leg loss to Sheffield Wednesday.

Jonson Clarke-Harris will be keen to impress for Posh once again, having fired in 29 goals across all competitions last time out, earning League One’s Golden Boot for a second consecutive time, having also managed to win this accolade in 2020/21 with 31 league goals.

Sutton vs Notts County: David McGoldrick to Score First - 4/1

The final tip on this list comes from Sutton versus Nott County, with the Magpies playing in their first League Two match since the 2018/19 season.

Luke Williams’ side were very impressive last season as they managed to win the National League play-offs while also earning 107 points.

In the summer, Notts County pulled off a major coup by acquiring David McGoldrick on a free transfer. The 35-year-old scored a total of 25 goals in 45 appearances across all competitions for Derby County last season and should suit County’s style of play well when considering that they accumulated 117 goals in 46 league matches during the 2022/23 campaign.
