Sheffield United News and Form

The Blades are on a three-match winning streak at the moment in their push for automatic promotion. They are currently undefeated in their last ten (W7 D3) in the Championship, which is a brilliant run of form. In that sequence, they have faced each of the other current top five as well. Last time out they got themselves a fantastic victory out at Leeds, a key challenger in the race for a top-two finish. The Blades have home form of W13 D3 L3 this season and they are on an eight-match winning streak at Bramall Lane currently.

The defence of Sheffield United has been immense lately. They have not conceded in any of their last seven games, home and away in league action. They have taken a clean sheet in each of their last seven home games. That’s phenomenal stuff and they only average 0.68 goals per game against at home this season. That hasn’t affected their scoring as they are averaging 1.8 goals per home game themselves and they have scored at least two goals in four of their last five home games.

Bristol City News and Form

The Robins are still in touch for a playoff spot, but they need to find their winning touch again. They have only taken the two points from their last five league outings, so it’s not happening for them at the moment.

In their three away games played against sides in the current top four, they have lost each of them, conceding at least two goals in each as well.

They have taken one point from their last two on the road, but before that, they wear on a big six-match undefeated run on their travels (W5 D1). The Robins have earned a clean sheet in 47% of their away games. Bristol City have only failed to score in one of their last eighteen league fixtures. They have no clean sheet in any of their last six, home and away.
