Sheffield United Prediction

Sheffield United were sent crashing out of the FA Cup 3rd round by National League outfit Barnet but manager Chris Wilder has bigger fish to fry this season as he turns his attention to the Championship where Sheffield United will go in search of a fourth league win on the trot.

The Blades sit in third spot and are just two points behind Norwich City who play West Brom this Saturday, so the door could be open for Sheffield United to sneak into second place with all three points here.

Recent wins over 6th placed Derby County along with victories against Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic with all matches resulting in 3 goals scored by Sheffield United with 3-1, 3-0 and 3-0 scorelines respectively, show United are a force to be reckoned with this season.

The hosts’ home record stands at 7-3-3 23/13 which includes winning their last two on the trot along with keeping four clean sheets at home to date. Forwards Sharp (16 goals), McGoldrick (9 goals) and Clarke (3 goals) are the key men up front along with loan signing Madine recently arrived from Cardiff City.

Key-Facts – Sheffield United v QPR

    • Sheffield united have scored 3 goals in each of their last three matches in the Championship
    • Sheffield United’s Billy Sharpe (16 goals) is the joint leading goalscorer in the Championship
    • QPR have managed just one away win from their last six

QPR Prediction

QPR have also found solid form under manager Steve McClaren as The R’s have put together a promising run of five matches without defeat which includes recent wins against Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest and Ipswich Town along with back-to-back draws against Reading and Aston Villa.

However, QPR have tended to blow hot and cold throughout this season as they previously went four matches without a win in the second tier, including defeats to Hull City and Leeds United. An away record of 4-4-5 14/21 indicates an inconsistent streak on their travels, and indeed, QPR have managed just one win from their last six on the road.

That win came in a 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest and along with 2-2 draws at Stoke City, Rotherham United and Aston Villa have seen the visitors pick up points on their travels.

Betting Tips Verdict

Sheffield United look to close in on a fourth win on the bounce and QPR may struggle to keep things tight at the back here.
