Yorkshire sides Sheffield United and Huddersfield Town lock horns at Bramall Lane this Saturday afternoon in EFL Championship action. Slavisa Jokanovic’s men are the only team left in the second tier yet to score a league goal this season. With the pressure already started to mount on the Sheffield United boss, only three points will do in this one. Despite their poor form, the hosts are the clear favourites.

Sheffield United Preview – Will the Blades finally score a goal?

After falling from the Premier League last season, Sheffield United were one of the promotion favourites before a ball was kicked. Slavisa Jokanovic, who took Watford and Fulham up, was appointed new boss in the close season.

However, to say that Sheffield United have made a poor start would be an understatement. The Blades finished rock bottom of the Premier League last term, and they are currently sitting in 22nd place in the Championship. United are the only team in the second tier yet to score a goal.

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

(odds taken 1236 GMT, Friday 20 August)

After opening up with a 1-0 home reverse to Birmingham City, Sheffield United drew 0-0 at Swansea City in game two. However, they were woeful on Wednesday, crashing to a heavy 4-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns. Jokanovic will be desperate for all three points from this one.

Huddersfield Town Preview – Can the Terriers cause an upset on the road?

Huddersfield Town have had a mixed bag of results at the start of their season. They kicked off before most clubs, beating Sheffield Wednesday on penalties in the EFL Cup on 1st August. A week later, Huddersfield drew 1-1 at Derby County in their Championship opener.

On matchday two, Carlos Corberan and his troops fell to humbling home defeat to Fulham. Marco Silva’s side ran riot at the John Smith’s Stadium, returning to west London with a thumping 5-1 victory.
