Match preview

A Sheffield United outfit fresh off the result of the weekend in the Championship weekend will act as hosts once more on Tuesday, November 8th.

The clash in question will see the Blades go head-to-head with a Rotherham United outfit in the midst of an alarming recent stretch of form.

Beginning with the former, as alluded to above, Sheffield United lit up the latest round of fixtures in England’s 2nd tier this past weekend.

This came upon Paul Heckingbottom’s troops welcoming table-topping Burnley to Bramall Lane.

United headed into proceedings with spirits high in the camp, fresh off a timely return to form courtesy of successive wins over West Bromwich Albion and Bristol City.

Few, however, could have envisioned just how dominant the Blades would go on to look against a Burnley outfit with just one defeat on their record all season.

Goals on the part of Iliman Ndiaye, Oli McBurnie (2), Jack Robinson and Anel Ahmedhodžić guided Saturday’s hosts to the right side of an eventual 5-2 scoreline.

Heckingbottom and co, as a result, have climbed back up to third in the Championship table, three points adrift of the summit whilst in possession of a game in hand.

And, in truth, it is not only difficult, but near-on impossible to envision Sheffield United’s upturn in fortunes being brought to an end on Tuesday night.

This comes with their upcoming opponents having seen their own form fall off the side of a cliff of late.

Since notching a pair of back-to-back wins over Huddersfield Town and Stoke City in mid-October, Rotherham, alarmingly, have secured just a solitary point from an available 15.

Their most recent outing, this past Saturday, saw the Millers’ fragility highlighted once more, in a meeting with Norwich City.

This came as Matt Taylor’s men, within a minute of pulling level through Oliver Rathbone early in the 2nd-half, allowed Norwich to retake the lead at the other end, en route to an eventual 2-1 defeat.

Rotherham, as a result, have plummeted down the Championship standings, now sitting 17th, just two points clear of the bottom three.

We at 101 are therefore backing Sheffield United to ultimately come away from Bramall Lane on Tuesday on the right side of an altogether one-sided scoreline.
