Sheffield United vs Millwall by Shibby
League One action for me tomorrow night in a game that will see league leaders Sheffield United welcome London outfit Millwall. The game will be played at Bramhall Lane, Sheffield and will kick off at 19:45 UK time.
The hosts head into the game in top spot, however, a recent lapse of results has seen Bolton close the gap to just 4 points. The Blades do have a 10 point gap over 3rd placed Fleetwood, however, I'm sure manager Chris Wilder will want his side to go up as Champions, however, I'd expect the fans would accept 2nd place come the end of the season, which would secure them Championship football.
United have 3 wins and 2 draws in their last 5 games, however, what stands out to me is the consistency of the team not losing games, they always seem to find a way to avoid defeat. Also, all 5 games has seen BTTS! This includes draws vs Rochdale (3-3) and Oldham (1-1), their wins came against Oxford (3-2), Swindon (4-2) and Charlton (2-1). Striker Billy Sharp has been in inspired form this season and has managed to score an incredible 26 goals this term!
As I mentioned earlier, I think Sheffield United will do everything in their power to get a result here, it won't be easy against a play off chasing Millwall, however, they will give it a good go for sure!
The visitors, like Sheffield United, would be expecting to get promotion this season. They been in the Championship previously and have slipped down the leagues in recent years. Millwall now 3 points off the play off places with a game in hand know that this is a game they realistically can't lose. It's getting very close at the top and a lot of teams are piling the pressure on for a play off place.
Millwall lost on the weekend 1-0 against relegation threatened Swindon 1-0, the goal came in the 94th minute! This will have hurt the Millwall players and I expect them to come out fighting vs top of the table Sheffield United.
Millwall have been inconsistent lately, they haven't won in their last 3 league games. 2 of these games ended in a draw and the defeat to Swindon topped of a poor run of 3 games. Millwall have score 53 and conceded 45 goals in their 38 league games. Sheffield United have scored an incredible 74 goals and conceded 44. So both teams average a goal per game at either end, therefore, I will be backing BTTS at a price of 1.92 with Unibet. Good Luck all.
