Sheffield United Preview – Can the Blades build on Barnsley win?

Sheffield United made a poor start to life back in the Championship after suffering relegation from the Premier League, failing to win any of their opening five league matches (two draws, three defeats).

However, the Blades then went on a five-game unbeaten streak – winning three and drawing two – to fire themselves up the league table. Inconsistency has struck again, though, as United have lost three and won two of their following five.

Our betting prediction:
Sheff Utd win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1307 GMT, Friday 29 October)

Sheffield United picked up a welcome win at Oakwell last weekend, with Lys Mousset (2) and Ben Osborn on target in the 3-2 success. Can Slavisa Jokanovic’s boys follow that up with three points from this one? Sheffield United are the bookies’ favourites at 4/7.

Blackpool Preview – Will the Seasiders’ fine form continue?

Blackpool won the EFL League One play-offs last term to book their place back in the second tier. Neil Critchley’s men struggled at the start, winning only one of their opening seven games, losing four times along the way.

However, the Tangerines have been one of the form sides in the Championship since then, winning five, drawing one and losing one of their past seven. They have gone from relegation fodder to having one eye on the play-offs. After a 2-1 loss at Nottingham Forest, Pool have bounced back with wins over Reading and Preston North End.
