Sheffield United Preview – Can Blades build on Bristol win?

A 3-2 win away from home at League One outfit, Bristol Rovers, in the FA Cup handed Sheffield United and manager, Chris Wilder, their first win of this season in all competitions and the hosts will be hoping they can use this as a springboard for the remainder of this campaign.

Results in the Premier League so far this season though suggest this could be easier said than done as The Blades have had to endure a wretched season so far, losing 15 of their 17 matches to date which has left Sheffield United rooted to the bottom of the table.

Sheffield United have lost seven of their eight matches at home this term but six of these eight matches have also been under 2.5 goals and the goals market looks the most appealing market here.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Newcastle United Preview – Can Magpies end poor run?

Tuesday’s visitors, Newcastle United, have also experienced a slump in results recently although The Magpies’ drought is not to the extent of that of their hosts, but nevertheless a run of five matches without a win will be a concern for Newcastle United manager, Steve Bruce.

Defeats against Leeds United, Manchester City and Leicester City have resulted in the north-east club dropping down to 15th place in the Premier League table while also gaining just two wins out of their seven outings on their travels.

Incidentally, six of Newcastle’s seven away matches have also been low-scoring affairs as they’ve been under the 2.5 goals mark and this upcoming clash at Bramall Lane could be no exception.
