Sheffield Utd vs Burton (By: Mrgol)
After lot of weeks in promotion zone, newpromoted Sheffield Utd. is in not great run with a balance of 3-1-4 in last eight matches. But they remain few poinst far from promotion zone and for this match receive a team that spent whole s e ason in lower part of table.
Second from bottom Burton has only a win and three draws in last ten rounds. In this period they won away against Barnsley and that was the fifth away win in the season ( away record is 5-5-7 13/26), but Barnsley is another poor team ( actually fourth from bottom) and third worst team at home.
In last four away matches they gained only another point.
For this round Barnet has various problems, cosecond scorer Akins ( 34+2 3g) is a new missing, while Boyce ( att.3+4 1g), the most important arrive in summer ( 23g in Scottish Premier last season) remain out as winter arrive Davenport ( midf.6+1 1g) and def. Brayford ( 19+1) and Turner ( def.24), except Boyce all recent missings, anyway.
For home team, the only player out is Coutts ( midf.16 1g), out since November, but hosts recover topscorer Clarcke ( 15g), out in last three matches and Duffy ( midf.24+5 2g), unavailable in last round.
In the recent no good run Sheffield loose three of its four matches far from home, two of them against strong teams as Wolves and Fulham, the home defeat arrive against Villa, another team in great form, while in last round they gained - again far from home- only one point against Ipswich.
All in all, Sheffield seems able to return to gain three points at home having important return and against a team never at good level and with various troubles.
