Huddersfield Town vs Sheffield United

, KO: 19:45 May 4, 2023, John Smith’s Stadium
Sheffield United

Huddersfield Town are in need of a win as they host Sheffield United in a Championship fixture on Thursday.

Huddersfield Town gave themselves a lifeline last time out as they claimed a 2-1 victory at Cardiff City in their previous Championship fixture. An effort from Joseph Hungbo and a Jack Simpson own-goal gave them a two-goal lead before the Welsh side pulled one back.

That was a vital win for Huddersfield Town as it means they are now three points above the relegation zone and will confirm their survival with just a point from their final two games. The result was also a continuation of their recent good form as they have lost just once in their last eight matches, claiming four wins in that run.

While things have undoubtedly been good for Huddersfield in recent weeks, their recent home form has not been up to scratch. Neil Warnock’s men have claimed just one win in their last five matches, although there have been three draws in that run.

Sheffield United were also victorious in their previous Championship fixture as they ran out 4-1 winners over Preston North End. They were comfortable throughout, with Anel Ahmedhodzic, John fleck, Iliman Ndiaye and Ollie McBurnie all on target.

The Blades may have already secured automatic promotion but appear to not be slowing down as they look to end the season on a high. Paul Heckingbottom’s men travel to the John Smith’s Stadium with four straight Championship wins.

While Sheffield United have also won three of their last four Championship matches on the road, they have not been all that convincing defensively on their travels. They have conceded in five of their last seven away matches across all competitions.

How the bookies view it

Sheffield United have the edge among the bookies and are priced at 11/8 by Paddy Power to claim the win. A victory for Huddersfield Town is valued at 23/10 with Unibet while a draw is set at odds of 21/10 by BoyleSports.

Head to head

Huddersfield Town have a 30-14 advantage with 18 draws from 62 previous matches against Sheffield United. However, the Blades are unbeaten in the last two meetings and claimed a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch

Huddersfield Town have spread their goals across the team but Jordan Rhodes often leads the line and could be worth keeping an eye on. The forward is priced at odds of 10/3 by William Hill to get on the score sheet on Thursday.

Iliman Ndiaye has been one of Sheffield United’s best players this term and has shown no signs of slowing down. The forward’s effort last time out took his tally to 14 goals for the season and could be backed to score anytime at 3/1 with bet365.

Anything else catch the eye?

Huddersfield Town and Sheffield United have shown little defensive solidity lately and both teams could be backed to score at 5/6 with Coral. The Terriers have seen over 3.5 goals in their last two home matches and a repeat is priced at 29/10 with BetVictor while over 2.5 goals is valued at 11/10 by Unibet.

Sheffield United have opened the scoring in their last three Championship matches and can be tipped to grab the first goal on Thursday at 10/11 with Coral.
