The Blades are in dismal form going into this one with three losses and two draws from their last five outings. Wednesday night saw them suffer a humiliating 1-0 defeat to Coventry, which was only their third victory of the season. Considering United were flying in first place just a few weeks ago, it is a shock that they have struggled in the last handful of games.
Results need to pick up again with sides now overtaking and catching up to the Blades, in fact, there is just one point between the two sides heading into this game. The home side are favourites to win though, with bookies’ pricing them at 13/10.
Opponents Norwich find themselves in a similar vein of form to the Blades with just one win in their last five and losing the last three on the bounce. The Canaries usually go straight back up after relegation, but fans will be worried that might not happen this season if they don’t get back in winning ways in what is proving to be a very competitive Championship season right across the league.
They go into this one as the outsiders, with bookies pricing the away win at odds of 19/10. Both sides should be throwing everything at this fixture given the desperate need to turn around poor runs of form.
