Match preview

One of the more straightforward to call fixtures of the upcoming Championship gameweek looks set to play out at Bloomfield Road on Thursday, December 29th.

The clash in question will see struggling Blackpool play host to a Sheffield United outfit in the midst of a stellar stretch of form.

The latter, of course, have been lighting up the landscape in England’s 2nd tier for some time now.

Chasing down table-topping Burnley in relentless fashion, the Blades have emerged victorious from all but one of their last eight outings.

The most recent came at the expense of a Coventry City outfit long climbing the table themselves, when goals on the part of James McAtee, Ciaran Clark and Tommy Doyle condemned the Sky Blues to a 3-1 defeat.

United, in turn, have climbed a full eight points clear of the chasing pack amid the battle for automatic promotion to the Premier League.

And all associated with Paul Heckingbottom’s men will no doubt be confident in their chances of keeping such fine form alive come the full-time whistle at Bloomfield Road on Thursday night.

This comes with Sheffield United’s upcoming opponents having endured an altogether tougher time of things of late.

Blackpool have failed to secure victory in any of their last seven fixtures, falling to defeat in four.

Their most recent outing, meanwhile, saw the seasiders throw away what would have proven a crucial three points at relegation rivals Hull City, en route to a 1-1 stalemate.

Such woes have culminated in Michael Appleton’s troops slipping into the bottom three, two points from safety as things stand.

And we at 101 do not envision Blackpool’s situation improving all that much on Thursday, instead backing Sheffield United to ultimately emerge comfortable victors on England’s northwest coast.
