The Championship also brings us action on Friday night with an important top five clash in the second tier between Sheffield United and West Brom as the betting tips continue at Bramall Lane.

Sheffield United Prediction

Sheffield United sit in third spot in the Championship but are five points behind Yorkshire rivals and second placed Leeds United, but they could reduce the deficit to just two points if the hosts take all three points in this crucial encounter.

Sheffield United come into this fixture having lost just once in their last five matches which was a 1-0 loss at home to the aforementioned Leeds United in the recent local derby, but Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United side have also registered wins over Brentford and Reading, both away from home in recent weeks.

The Blades possess a reasonable looking home record of 5-3-2 16/10 which includes just the Leeds defeat from their last nine matches at Bramall Lane, and with important wins over teams such as Norwich City, Aston Villa and Preston North End, the hosts will fancy their chances of further success against West Brom on Friday night.

Forwards Sharp (11 goals), McGoldrick (5 goals) and Clarke (2 goals) are the Blades’ danger men up front.

West Brom Prediction

Onto West Brom and they extended their unbeaten run in the Championship to five matches with a local derby 2-2 draw with Aston Villa last time out at The Hawthorns. The Baggies had previously won three on the trot against Leeds United, Ipswich Town and Swansea City along with a point against Brentford in a 1-1 draw.

However, although Darren Moore’s side continue to hover in the play-off pack, the west midlands club still hasn’t taken the division by storm as many were predicting before the season began, and they sit in 5th place and a point behind Sheffield United ahead of this tasty clash.

An away record of 4-3-3 15/14 underlines the inconsistent nature of not only West Brom’s results away from home but also the Championship overall. In addition, The Baggies have failed to keep a single clean sheet on their travels so far this season and their defence will once again come under close scrutiny this evening.

Sheffield United v West Brom – Betting Tips Verdict

Sheffield United seem to be the more consistent outfit in recent weeks, so I advise using the draw no bet on the Blades here.
