  • Coventry have conceded fewer than two goals in six of their last eight home league contests.

Clouds surround Sky Blues ahead of Blades battle

Sheffield United’s charge towards the top three places should continue on Saturday when they face a Coventry City team that have begun to fall away from promotion contention.

The Sky Blues dropped out of the top ten for the first time this season after Tuesday’s home defeat to Luton and it seems like Mark Robins’ side have suffered a collective dip in form over the last month or so. They have lost three, drawn one and won two of their last six and needed 90th and 89th minute winners to claim the victories against relegation-threatened Bristol City and Barnsley.

The same cannot be said of the Blades, who thrashed Middlesbrough 4-1 in midweek to replace them inside the top six. The south Yorkshire side have been solid on the road, returning victorious from five their last nine away trips and losing only to Derby and Millwall during that sequence.

Clean sheet prospects look good for visitors

Coming off the back of arguably their best display of the season, we cannot recommend anything other than a Blades win here. Paul Heckingbottom’s side have the Championship’s best defensive record over the last 12 games and can turn in another doughty display in the west Midlands.

Only six clubs in the division have taken fewer points than Coventry across the last six home games, illustrating our lack of faith in the hosts here. Their failure to find the net against Luton – a team that had shipped six in their three prior road trips – fuels our belief that the visitors can win this 1-0 as we also note that Coventry have conceded fewer than two goals in six of their last eight home league contests.
