Sheffield United vs Brentford Match Preview
Sheffield United kept their pressure on Norwich at the top with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Rotherham last time out. It means they have taken an impressive 18 points from the last 24 on offer.
At Bramall Lane, the Blades are flying have won each of their last seven which includes victories over Middlesbrough and Derby. Their defence is strong at home having kept clean sheets in each of their last six.
A 2-1 road success at Middlesbrough at the weekend made it back-to-back victories and four from their last five for Brentford. They it in 12th but are just six points behind Derby in sixth and have a game in hand.
Away from Griffin Park, the Bees have struggled this season but have lost just two of the last six so are slowly finding a style that works on the road. Said Benrahma has netted in two of his last four appearances on the road.
This is one of those strange games where you can could make a case for both teams to be value. The hosts have won seven straight at their own place so they could be good things here but maybe the visitors are value considering they have won at Middlesbrough lately. I think it is best to find the value in other areas.
Both teams have goalscorers but both also have defences in good form with the Blades not conceding a goal in six at their own place. The Bees meanwhile have conceded just three times in their last five so under 2.5 goals looks of interest.
11 of the 18 Championship matches played at Bramall Lane this season have been level going into the break and it looks worth taking that this will be the case here between two sides in good form.
