Football – England – Championship Betting Tips

Friday night also brings us further action from the Championship with the Sheffield Steel local derby between Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday as the betting tips continue in the second tier.

Sheffield United relinquished their position at the top of the Championship last weekend when they suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat away at Nottingham Forest at the City Ground, but they’ll be hopeful of returning to winning ways on Friday night when they host rivals Sheffield Wednesday at Bramall Lane.

United hold a decent looking home record of  5-2-1 16/9 which includes an unbeaten run of seven matches on home turf. Wins over Norwich City, Aston Villa, Preston North End, Hull City and Wigan Athletic have kept Chris Wilder’s side in the hunt for automatic promotion.

Evergreen forward Billy Sharp (10 goals) and McGoldrick (5 goals) look the most likely for The Blades here.

Onto Sheffield Wednesday and the visitors will be desperate to not only put one over their bitter local rivals but also end a miserable four-match losing streak when they take on United on Friday night.

Recent defeats to Middlesbrough, rejuvenated QPR and Birmingham City outfits along with a 4-0 thumping at home by Norwich City have put The Owls on red alert, and another loss in this local derby could signal the end of manager Jos Luhukay’s reign at Hillsborough.

Sheffield Wednesday’s recent slump in form has seen them drop down to 17th in the Championship, while their away record reads  3-0-5  10/16. Although they’ve recorded wins at Reading, Aston Villa and Bristol City, all of these opponents reside in the bottom half of the division.

In addition, only Wigan Athletic (17 goals) have conceded more away from home than Sheffield Wednesday on their travels so far this season.

Sometimes you just have to go with the obvious option, so the betting tips advise a home win for Sheffield United in this one.
