Leeds vs Sheffield United Match Preview
Leeds made it three straight victories on Tuesday night with a comfortable 3-0 success at Reading on Tuesday night to stay second behind Norwich. Pablo Hernandez grabbed a brace on that occasion and he has three in his last three and ten for the season.
At Elland Road, the Whites have won three straight and seven of the previous nine in the Championship. Egzijan Alioski has netted in each of his last two appearances in front of his own fans.
Sheffield United stretched their unbeaten record to nine with an impressive 2-0 defeat of Brentford in midweek despite playing 55 minutes with ten men. Their defence is excelling at the moment keeping clean sheets in each of their last six.
Away from Bramall Lane, the Blades are unbeaten though three of these have finished all-square. Billy Sharp has five in the last four on the road though he has none in the previous two.
Leeds are favourites to win the game given their home advantage but Sheffield United are tough opponents and this looks a tricky game to call. I would look away from the full-time markets to find the value.
The visitors have not conceded in their last six so I think going low on goals is the order of the day here. Under 2.5 goals looks a sensible play while it might also be worth an interest on under 1.5 with two of the last four involving the hosts seeing just one goal.
