Sheffield United Preview – Can the Blades make it four unbeaten?

Paul Heckingbottom’s Sheffield United had a tough start to their season, facing Watford away from home on the first weekend. Joao Pedro netted the only goal to give the Hornets a 1-0 victory at Vicarage Road.

Sheffield have responded with a three-game unbeaten run in the Championship, collecting seven points from three games. After beating Millwall 2-0 at Bramall Lane, United picked up a good 2-2 draw at Middlesbrough in game three. They returned to winning ways on Wednesday, edging past Sunderland at home.

Our betting prediction:
Sheff Utd to be winning at half time & full time

(odds taken 1312 GMT, Friday 19 August)

Sheffield United have a 100% record at home, and Heckingbottom’s boys will fancy their chances of toppling the league leaders on Saturday. The home victory is priced at 3/4.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can the Blue and Whites return to winning ways?

Jon Dahl Tomasson has made an instant impact at Blackburn Rovers after taking over from the long-serving Tony Mowbray in the summer. Blackburn raced to three wins from three, seeing off Queens Park Rangers, Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion. They also hammered Hartlepool United 4-0 in the first round of the EFL Cup.

The Blue and Whites went into the midweek game with Reading in high spirits after four straight league and cup wins. The Royals had previously lost 4-0 at Rotherham United, but Paul Ince’s men cruised to a 3-0 home win. Tomasson’s team struggled to get going at the Select Car Leasing Stadium and were well beaten.
