Tip Reasoning

Sheffield United weren’t able to edge into the top two last weekend, but they did hold Norwich to a 2-2 draw. They remain just three points shy of the Canaries, but there’s a huge opportunity for them this weekend. They come into this clash knowing that the top two meet later on Saturday, while the two sides directly behind them are also going head to head. With a home clash against Bolton Wanderers coming up this weekend, the Blades can’t afford to pass up this huge chance.

The home side will be looking to bounce back to form, after picking up a point from their last two matches. The Blades will be looking to build on one of the best home records in the Championship, which has seen them win their last three matches at this ground. They come into Saturday’s game as heavy favourites, given the huge gulf between the two sides. It’s almost the perfect clash for Blades, especially in a weekend which sees some big tests for the sides around them. Will Sheffield United follow up on their favourite tag and claim a win?

Bolton come here with their own issues on the road, which has left them rooted in the bottom three. They toiled in their midweek meeting with Reading, drawing 1-1 in a crucial clash. That’s left them in 23rd place after they missed out on the chance to move out of danger against the side directly above them. This weekend brings a tough trip to a side at the other end of the table, and Bolton are in awful form when it comes to away trips. With just 10 points from 14 away trips, we don’t expect much from the visitors here.

Bolton have lost eight of their 14 matches this season on the road, while Sheffield United have won eight from 14 at home. The visitors have failed to win in their last 12 trips, losing five on the spin. The weekend brought another loss on the road for the Trotters, who went down 2-1 at Bristol City. We can’t see any chance of an upset in this encounter, which has us backing a home win on Saturday.

Sheffield United have won to nil in three of their last four meetings with Bolton, while they meet a side who have failed to score in 50% of their league trips. We don’t see the visitors getting a goal in this clash, they’ve had a pretty low scoring record on their travels. Bolton have seen under 3.5 goals land in 79% of their trips, while the Blades have conceded less than a goal per game here, scoring 24 times in return. We see a straightforward win for the Blades, so Sheffield United and under 3.5 goals is our tip here.
