Tip Reasoning

  • The hosts are unbeaten across their last eight matches and haven’t conceded in their last four.
  • Blackburn Rovers have failed to score in their last four games.
  • Sheffield United are conceding less than a goal per game on home soil.

The Blades are flying

What a start to 2022 for the Blades. In the eight games they’ve played since the turn of the year, they’ve suffered just a single league defeat and this form that’s propelled Paul Heckingbottom’s men into playoff contention. They can thank their resolute defence for their success during that period given that they’ve conceded just three league goals in 2022, it’s also a backline that’s kept a clean sheet in each of their last four league outings. They thumped Swansea City 4-0 at the weekend and they’ll be hoping for more of the same here.

Blackburn Rovers were aiming for an automatic promotion spot at one point, but a tail off in form now sees them lying third, but four points off of second-placed Bournemouth despite playing two games more. Their recent form has also been underwhelming having not clinched a victory across any of their last four matches. Their weekend fixture against Millwall was postponed and boss Tony Mowbray will hope the enforced rest will be an advantage.

Close encounter predicted

We’re not expecting a thriller here and believe that a close contest is likely. We think Sheffield United could claim victory but it’s tough to know which Blackburn Rovers will turn up or how the enforced break could impact them. We think there will be fewer than three goals here and that’s what we’re going for.
