Sheffield United and West Bromwich are playing against each other in the 22 round of the Championship. It seems that both teams will be in the fight for promotion for the Premier League. The defeat that Sheffield had against Leeds at the start of the month stopped their run of eight matches without a loss. In a hard game during the weekend with goals in the last minutes of the match, The Blades achieved a victory against Reading with 2-0.
West Bromwich also had problems in the last round of Championship, and after a goal by Jay Rodriguez in 92 minutes they drew 2-2 against Aston Villa. The Baggies increased their run of five games without a loss. If The Albion win on Bramall Lane, the team will equal their record set on May 2008 of three consecutive away wins.
In the standings, Sheffield United have one point more than West Bromwich, but the team is not performing on the level from the start of the season. The Blades have just three wins in the previous nine games, and they couldn’t score at home in two consecutive games. On the other hand in the matches of The Albion were scored many goals, although not when the team is playing away from home. Darren Moore’s team is playing cautiously in their away games, and the team conceded just one goal in the last four fixtures. I will back Sheffield United Under 1.5 Goals, with Draw 1-1 Correct Score.
