Sheffield United vs Nottingham Forest

Sheffield United return to Bramall Lane this Friday where they will face Nottingham Forest in the Championship. The Blades need to secure three points in this fixture after dropping points on three occasions in their last four games, which has seen them fall three points behind Leeds United. Nottingham Forest have struggled to find any consistency in their performances this season and find themselves in a run of poor form ahead of this fixture. When these sides met at the City Ground earlier this season, Nottingham Forest took the three points with a 1-0 win.

With six games left to play in the Champions, Sheffield United remain in the running for the title with them sat seven points behind the league leaders Norwich City. However, the Blades find themselves dropping too many points in their recent games. Over the last five games, Sheffield have secured just two wins alongside one defeat and two draws. Following their recent 1-1 draw with Millwall, United have drawn their last two games on the bounce. If you fancy the Blades to pick up their third consecutive draw then SkyBet is offering odds of 29/10. The hosts arrive as strong favourites to secure the three points with odds of 8/15 at Bet365.

Sheffield have shown their defensive qualities this season and with just 39 goals conceded they hold the second best record behind Middlesbrough. It is very rare that Sheffield conceded more than one goal with it only happening once in their last five games, the other four fixtures have all ended with under 2.5 goals scored. Bet365 has there to be under 2.5 goals scored priced at 4/5. Billy Sharp has provided the majority of his side’s goals this season with 24 on his record but arrives having failed to score in his last three games. Betway has the forward to score anytime priced at 19/20.

Nottingham Forest would have had higher expectations for this season with them entering the final stages of the season sitting in 11th place, eight points behind the top six. Despite being priced as the heavy underdogs for this fixture, Forest secured all three points when they first faced their opponents this season with a 1-0 win. SkyBet has a repeat result to happen priced at 14/1. Forest arrive at this fixture having lost their last three matches on the bounce following their recent 2-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers. SkyBet has Forest to win this fixture priced at 11/2.

Martin O’Neill’s men head into this fixture having failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five games but have managed to score in all but one of those games. Bet365 has both teams to score priced at 1/1. Lewis Grabban sits as his sides top goalscorer with 17 goals this season and arrives having scored one in his last three. Betway has the forward to score priced at 10/3.
