Sheffield United host Derby County at Bramall Lane in the EFL Championship this Saturday. The Blades, who were relegated from the Premier League last term, are starting to find some form, winning two and drawing two of their past four. Derby have off-field issues at present, but Wayne Rooney’s men have made a decent enough start on the pitch. Who will come out on top in Sheffield? We take a look at the latest odds and tips.

Sheffield United Preview – Will the Blades stretch undefeated run?

Slavisa Jokanovic had a slow start at Bramall Lane, with Sheffield United failing to win any of their opening five in the league. They opened up their Championship campaign with three defeats and two draws.

The Blades have slowly but surely turned things around in recent weeks, though. Since back-to-back losses to West Bromwich Albion and Huddersfield Town in August, United are unbeaten in four in the Championship. Jokanovic’s side have seen off Peterborough United and Hull City and drawn with Luton Town and Preston North End.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1208 GMT, Friday 24 September)

Sheffield United’s improvement in results has taken them up to 14th, now just four points away from the play-off spots. Will their momentum continue with another good result at the weekend?

Derby County Preview – Can the Rams lift their spirits?

Derby County are suffering off the field at the moment, and Wayne Rooney’s men have dropped to the foot of the Championship table after a 12-point deduction due to administration. On the field, the Rams have won two, lost two and drawn four of their opening eight league fixtures.

Derby are sitting on -2 after their points penalty, but Rooney will be encouraged by the club’s start, as only Peterborough and Birmingham City have beaten them in the Championship so far. Last time out, Derby got the better of in-form Stoke City at Pride Park, with Max Bird and Curtis Davies netting in a 2-1 win.
