Football – England – Championship Betting Tips

One of the tastiest fixtures in this weekend’s Championship action is up next as Nottingham Forest take on Sheffield United with further betting tips brought to you this Saturday.

Nottingham Forest sit in 7th place but are just two points outside of the play-off pack as they prepare for the visit of the league leaders at the City Ground this Saturday afternoon. Forest bring a fairly solid set of results with them into this encounter as they’ve suffered just one defeat from their last nine overall in the Championship.

Wins over Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham United, Middlesbrough and Bolton Wanderers have kept the east midlands outfit in the frame for a top six finish, while their record on home turf reads a pretty solid  3-3-1  10/8. Had Forest not drawn 8 of their 15 matches to date, they could well be sitting in the play-off pack by now.

Onto Sheffield United and the league leaders currently sit top of the Championship but have Yorkshire rivals, Leeds United, in close attendance just two points behind them and waiting for The Blades to slip up.

The visitors have lost just once in their last eight matches overall in the second tier which was a 2-1 loss away at Frank Lampard’s Derby County, but recent wins over Blackburn Rovers (away), Hull City (home) and Wigan Athletic (home) have helped lift the Blades up into top spot.

An away record of  4-0-3  11/9 suggests a hint of inconsistency on their travels so far, so manager Chris Wilder will be keen his side don’t drop all three points here in order to keep Leeds off top place.

Along with Birmingham City, Nottingham Forest have been the draw specialists to date while Sheffield United won’t want to be on the end of a second defeat on the trot at the City Ground this weekend.
