Sheffield Utd – Bristol City Match Preview

  • Two of the Championship’s bottom-half strugglers meet in the Steel City after each enjoyed breakthrough 1-0 midweek victories, as Sheffield United and Bristol City snapped winless league droughts of four and three games apiece. It was Sheffield United who eliminated Bristol City from the 2020/21 FA Cup fifth round proper by the same scoreline the last time these clubs met in any competition.
  • Sheffield United’s attention now turns to ending a run of three consecutive Championship home games in which they failed to win despite beginning as warm favourites (D1, L2). A win rate of just 33% for the pre-match favourite throughout their whole league campaign (W6, D5, L7) suggests anything could happen here, but one thing appears to be predictable: Sheffield United’s last nine Championship games have all included a half-time draw, as have their last eight played at home.
  • Bristol City, on the other hand, have taken 1-0 leads into the interval during their last three Championship outings, but with mixed results (W1, D1, L1). Boss Nigel Pearson backed the squad that earned a draw at Blackburn at the weekend, not making a single change despite the quick turnaround, and was rewarded with a win for a sixth time this league season – all by a one-goal margin.
  • However since a shock victory at QPR in the middle of September propelled them into the top half of the table, Bristol City’s travelling form has been exceptionally poor. Their only win from their last five Championship away trips (L4) came at relegation contenders Peterborough United (W 3-2), whilst more recently they have conceded exactly three goals in three consecutive away defeats.
  • Players to watch: Sheffield United’s Billy Sharp, already their first goalscorer in four Championship games this season, was the only scorer when these teams met in the 2020/21 FA Cup. With his first-half penalty three weeks ago, Chris Martin has now scored in four of Bristol City’s last eight Championship away trips.
  • Hot stat: The first half has been the highest scoring half in just two of Sheffield United’s last 18 Championship matches.
