Sheffield United v Reading Championship Preview, 16th February 3.00pm

Sheffield United will be hoping to drive home a big three points for themselves in their promotion push on Saturday. They entertain the relegation-threatened Royals at Bramall Lane, who have big concerns at the wrong end of the table. Read our Sheffield United v Reading betting tips for more.

Reading 6/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 13th, 2019 at 3:34 a.m.)


Sheffield United News and Form

The Blades did themselves a tremendous favour in their promotion push with a 1-0 home win over Middlesbrough in midweek. That moved them onto a four-match undefeated streak of form in the division, and they have lost only one of their last nine played. Sheffield United have won six of their last nine league games and they are running in some red-hot form on home soil. United are on a six-match winning streak now at Bramall Lane after their success over Middlesbrough.

Each of United’s last four home wins have been with a clean sheet as well. They have conceded just 13 goals in their 16 home fixtures in the Championship. Sheffield United’s overall home form this season reads W10 D3 L3. They have won all three of their home games played this season against sides currently 18th lower in the table. In total, Sheffield United have earned a clean sheet in 44% of their home fixtures. The Blades have scored 63% of home goals in the second period of fixtures. There are currently on a six-match scoring streak at Bramall Lane in the league.

Sheffield United were 2-0 winners at Reading in December
The Blades are on a three-match winning streak over the Royals
Reading have won none of their last eight league games against the Blades
United have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven league fixtures against the Royals

Reading News and Form

The Royals took a 2-1 home victory over Blackburn in midweek, snapping a three-match sequence of drawn games that they were on. So they now are unbeaten in four and have lost just one of their last six in the Championship. The Royals have only managed one away league victory all season (D8 L7) and that way success happened all the way back in mid-September at Preston. It means they are without a win in 12 league away games.

They have had their problems in front of goal as they have returned only the 13 goals from their 16 away games. Only 38% of their away fixtures have ended over 2.5 goals. In their last five away games, Reading have returned just two goals in total. That was a big three points that Reading collected against Blackburn as it lifted them out of the relegation zone at the expense of Rotherham. Can they build on it? Reading have been at 0-0 at halftime in exactly half of their away games.

Sheffield United v Reading Tips & Odds

Sheffield United to win to nil at 11/8

Who will win – Sheffield United v Reading Predictions

Reading look short of goals and that should give the Blades a pretty decent shot at three points and we’ll predict that they get it with a clean sheet as well.

62% of Aston Villa’s home games this season have ended up over 3.5 goals. Both teams have scored in 81% of Aston Villa’s home fixtures. A huge positive for Aston Villa has been their scoring, as they have hit the back of the net in each and every home league game played. Only two sides in the division have scored more league goals than Aston Villa have. Defensively is where Villa have fallen down because only two sides in the league have conceded more than they have done this season.

West Brom News and Form

West Brom were involved in an entertaining 2-2 draw at home against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night. That leaves them with a W2 D2 L1 record in their last five league fixtures. Overall this season away from home in the Championship, West Brom are at W8 D3 L4. The Baggies will be looking for their third straight away success in the division, and they have actually won six of their last seven away from the Hawthorns.

So they are a side in pretty decent form at the moment and of course will be up for this big derby match. West Brom have improved to three clean sheets in their last four away games after not managing a single one in their opening 11 away games. West Brom have scored in each of their last 15 league fixtures, including a seven-match scoring streak on their travels. None of West Brom’s last nine away games have ended in a draw. There are still the top scorers in the Championship, and only the top two of Norwich and Leeds have earned more away points then the Baggies have done.

Stoke News and Form

Stoke are really going through a rough patch of form lately as they have lost five of their last seven (W1 D1). That has seen them lodge themselves firmly in the bottom half of the table. This massive collapse has been after they were unbeaten in ten games in the second tier. So it has gone downhill quickly. Stoke are W7 D3 L5 at home this season in the Championship now. They have lost two for their last three at home, both of those were 2-0 reverses against Bristol City then Preston.

Stoke have actually failed to score in five of their last seven league outings, so there’s a clear problem there. Only five teams have scored fewer league goals than they have managed this season. Four of their last five league losses have been by a 2-0 scoreline. Just 33% of Stoke’s home games this season have gone above 2.5 goals. Stoke have opened the scoring in eight of their fifteen home games.

West Brom News and Form

The Baggies haven’t quite been at their best lately eight though. They lost a top clash against Middlesbrough last weekend, going down 2-3 at home against Boro. That leaves the Baggies with only the one win in their last five (D2 L2) so there have been vulnerabilities creeping in. However, if you break it down and look at their away form, they have won three of their last four out on the road (L1). Overall this season the Baggies are W7 D3 L4 on their travels.

West Brom have averaged 1.7 goals per away games, but have only taken the two clean sheets away from home. Those have both been in their last three road fixtures. West Brom have scored in each of their last thirteen league outings (home and away combined) and they are still the top-scoring side in the division. Albion have been level at the break in 8 of their 14 away games and they boast the fourth-best away record of all Championship sides.

Norwich News and Form

The Canaries made a huge statement last time out with a 3-1 away win at title challengers Leeds. That leaves Norwich undefeated in five league games (W2 D3) and they are on track for an automatic promotion push. They will look to make full advantage of this fixture at home against an Ipswich side who look destined to be playing in League One next season. Norwich are W9 D2 L4 at Carrow Road this season. They have actually come through a tough spell of games having faced all three of the other current top four sides in their last four matches.

Norwich never crumbled in any of those. The Canaries have tallied 31 goals at home this season with 67% of their home games going above 2.5 goals. Both teams have scored in each of Norwich’s last seven league matches, home and away combined. Norwich are on a nine-match scoring streak at home, actually scoring at least two in each of their last seven there. They are without a clean sheet in seven home games though.

Ipswich News and Form

Ipswich are in a heap of trouble at the foot of the table. They lost 1-0 against Sheffield Wednesday last weekend, which was their third straight league defeat. The Tractor Boys are W1 D1 L6 in their last eight league fixtures. Home and away combined this season they have taken just the three league wins, only one of those have been away (D2 L12). Part of their problem has been putting the ball in the back of the net.

The Tractor Boys have scored just the nine goals on their travels, seven of those actually appearing in the first half of matches. Ipswich have conceded at an average of just over two goals per road game. Ipswich haven’t managed a single away clean sheet this season. It gets worse. They have conceded at least two goals in each of their last fourteen away games. Needless to say, they have the worst away record in the Championship.

Boro have shown some good form lately, in the Championship at least. We say that because they were dumped out of the FA Cup by League Two side Newport in midweek. Anyway, Boro are W4 D2 L1 in their last seven league games so it has been a good return from them. Their record at the Riverside this season is W6 D5 L3 but they have been off the boil a bit there lately. They have posted just the one victory in their last five home fixtures (D2 L2). However, Boro have produced a W3 D1 record at home against current top-eight sides this season.

They have been a bit lean in front of goal with them having averaged exactly one goal per game. Their defence has been a big plus for them though as they have shipped at an average of 0.64 goals per home game, which is fantastic. They have taken a clean sheet in 57% of home games. Each of their last four at the Riverside have ended under 2.5 goals and overall on home soil, just 14% of their games have gone above that goal line. Boro are head and shoulders the team with the best defensive record in the Championship.

Leeds News and Form

Leeds have seen four defeats come their way in their last six league fixtures. They are still in a tight tussle for top spot though. They had suffered back to back away games before collected a 2-1 victory over relegation-threatened Rotherham in their last away game. Overall that leaves them at W8 D3 L4 on their travels this term. Leeds have been scoring well, having produced 26 goals in their fifteen away games. 67% of their road games have gone over the 2.5 goal line. Playing its part in that is Leeds having conceded at an average of 1.4 goals per road game.

Leeds have scored in all of their away games this season, but they haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last four away from Elland Road. Of the goals which the Whites have produced this season on their travels, Leeds have scored 73% in the second half of fixtures. Only Middlesbrough and Norwich have better away records this season than Leeds have in the Championship. The Whites have the joint fourth-best offence and fourth-best defensive record in the tier. They just need to start getting some consistency back into their game.

Who will win – Middlesbrough v Leeds Predictions

Leeds have failed to score in four of their last five games against Boro and we feel that Boro’s defence can hold them at bay again. This is an important clash for both of them and they may cancel each other out. Draw.
