Tip Reasoning

  • Sheffield United are unbeaten across their last 12 Championship home games.
  • The hosts have won their last six meetings with Reading.
  • Reading have won just 25% of their away Championship matches this season.

The promotion race heats up

The race for promotion is heating up in the Championship and hosts Sheffield United are right in the middle of it. There are just five games remaining as we go into the Easter weekend and the ‘Blades’ currently occupy the final play-off spot. Every match is vital and Sheffield United will be happy that they’re facing Reading on home soil this weekend, given they’ve emerged victorious against the ‘Royals’ in nine of the last ten league meetings.

Reading are not quite safe from relegation just yet as they sit eight points clear of the dropzone, but they have played a game more than Barnsley who sits third-bottom. However, if they can secure a shock victory when they travel north to the Steel City, they can pretty much guarantee themselves a place in the Championship next season. If they are to do that, they’ll need to tighten up at the back. They’ve conceded a ridiculous 77 goals so far this season, with 49 of those coming in the second half of games.

Another win for the Blades

We don’t give the visitors much hope here. They’re too often caught wide open at the back and gift far too many chances. We’re expecting Sheffield United to remain resolute and take their chances. We’ll side with Sheffield United to claim victory here and keep a clean sheet.
