Newcastle vs Sheffield United Match Preview
Sheffield United travel to Newcastle for their Matchday 30 clash on Saturday in a great mood after turning two very narrow clashes their way and beating Reading (1-2 in FA Cup) and Norwich (1-0 in Premier League) last week. They saw a home loss to Magpies back in December and we expect Chris Wilder’s men very motivated to take revenge.
Blades sit just five points behind 4th placed Chelsea with a game in hand but have a lot to prove if they’re to make it happen, with a tough schedule and clashes against Man United, Tottenham, Wolves, Chelsea, and Leicester still ahead. Grabbing points at St James thus feels all the more important and we do see them snatching the spoils.
Newcastle beat West Brom (2-3) in a five-goal FA Cup thriller and edged past Southampton (0-1) with a single goal from Saint-Maximin last week, which will have them looking to build on the performances as well. They ended a streak of five Premier League games without a win at St Mary’s but more importantly, Steve Bruce’s men finally found the net.
Magpies haven’t scored a league goal since January beforehand and rediscovering their form up front could prove crucial in their attempts not to drop into the danger zone. They conceded no goals in their last four home outings either, though, and we feel this points towards a tight contest on the day as well.
We will back Sheffield United to capitalize on their fine form of recent and turn it their way, though, as we go for an Away win at 13/10 with bet365. They’ve been very tough to deny and we don’t see Newcastle up to the task.
We should be in for a very tough defensive display on both ends and slim margins could make all the difference. With that in mind, we’re going for few goals and backing Under 2.5 Goals FT at 8/15 with William Hill as well.
