Sheffield United vs Burton predictions, betting tips and match preview
Sheffield United ruined their recent good work when losing to Hull City last weekend at the KCOM Stadium. A fixture they were expected to win, despite being on the road, Nouha Dicko netted the only goal of the game on 55 minutes to separate the rivals. Chris Wilder was brutally honest when assessing his side’s performance for the media at full-time, telling scribes his men didn’t deserve to get anything out of the match. He’ll be hoping to see a response this week and the home win has been marked up at 1/2 by most major bookmakers, including Coral.
Burton started the week second-bottom of the pile and well on their way to playing League One football in the summer. A three-match unbeaten run gave fans hope – two draws and a win – but they were brought back to earth with a 1-0 reverse at home to Millwall a week ago, Ben Marshall’s strike enough to win the points. All eyes were on Darren Bent’s performance, but he looked rusty when missing a couple of good chances. Away day is 15/2, top price at Betfair. Bent is as big as 10/1 to score first.
