Sheffield United Preview – Can the Blades secure another crucial three points?

Sheffield United made a poor start to their season after their disappointing relegation from last term’s Premier League. However, since Paul Heckingbottom took over in November, the Blades have only been heading in one direction.

Sheffield United picked up a vital 1-0 victory over fellow promotion hopefuls Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday night. It was a tight and tense tussle at Bramall Lane, with Oliver Norwood’s early effort proving to be the only goal of the game. The three points lifted United back into the top six.

(odds taken 2215 GMT, Thursday 7 April)

Sheffield United will be hoping to stay in the play-off positions from now until the end of the season. Victory over second-place Bournemouth on Saturday would send out a real signal of intent before the others play. The hosts are the slight favourites at 11/8.

Bournemouth Preview – Will the Cherries take another step towards promotion?

Scott Parker’s Bournemouth have had one or two iffy spells this season, but the Cherries are sitting pretty in second right now. Fulham will be tough to topple in the title race, but Parker’s side are in pole position to take second.

Bournemouth suffered a setback in midweek, losing 2-0 to West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns. That stopped a five-game unbeaten run, though the Dorset club are still well clear of third.

Sheffield United vs Bournemouth Betting Advice

Bournemouth edged the meeting at the Vitality Stadium several months back. Morgan Gibbs-White’s goal shortly after half time gave the Blades the lead. However, quickfire efforts in three minutes from Dominic Solanke and Philip Billing turned the match on its head.

That was the Cherries’ first win in this fixture since 1987. The Blades had won nine of ten prior to the October meeting.


Key Facts – Sheffield United vs Bournemouth Betting Tip

  • Sheffield United moved into sixth with the midweek win
  • Bournemouth are six points above third place at present
  • The Cherries have beaten the Blades just once since 1987


Bournemouth edged a tight encounter at the Vitality in October, and this will no doubt be another close contest between two of the Championship’s finest.

The Cherries nicked the meeting on home soil, but Parker’s boys would surely take a draw in this one. A point would not be a disaster for Sheffield United, either, and the stalemate and over 2.5 goals is too good to turn down at the eye-opening odds of 10/1.
