Peterborough vs Sheffield United: Top Two Betting Tips

Peterborough find themselves in the relegation zone and even a win on Saturday is unlikely to be enough to guide them to safety. Mid-table SWheff Utd provide the opposition this weekend and the visitors arrive having failed to win any of their last three away games in league and cup.


Both teams have scored in five of the last seven league meetings between these two clubs and we're predicting more of the same on Saturday. Five of Peterborough's last six matches in all competitions have ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard, while Sheff Utd have only kept two clean sheets in their last six fixtures.

At least three goals have been scored in five of the last seven encounters between Peterborough and Sheff Utd with the Blades claiming a 6-2 win when the pair locked horns back in September. Each of Peterborough's last six matches have witnessed at least three goals scored, while the same can be said for three of Sheff Utd's last six fixtures.

Everything you need to know about Peterborough vs Sheffield United

Posh could do with a win this weekend in their battle against relegation

In midweek, Posh made the trip to Birmingham and managed to come away with a point but really should have secured all three. Marriott put the visitors 1-0 up in the 16th-minute and in the 67th-minute Clarke-Harris made it 2-0 from the penalty spot. Birmingham pulled a goal back in the 85th-minute and Peterborough failed to hold onto their one-goal advantage as the hosts equalised with 2-minutes of the 90 remaining.

Peterborough Predicted Lineup – Benda, Beevers, Thompson, Kent, Mumba, Norburn, Taylor, Burrows, Poku, Clarke-Harris & Marriott

Sheff Utd welcomed Luton to Bramall Lane last weekend and nothing could separate the sides at the interval. The Blades forward Brewster opened the scoring in the 48th-minute, though, and shortly after that Robinson scored to put the home side into a commanding lead, one that Luton could not recover from. A win for Sheff Utd this weekend could move the former Premier League club up two places and into the top 10, as long as results elsewhere go in their favour.

Sheff Utd Predicted Lineup – Foderingham, Basham, Robinson, Egan, Bogle, Norrington-Davies, Hourihane, Norwood, Ndiaye, Sharp & Brewster

Team News

Peterborough: Idris Kanu, Joel Randall and Dan Butler could miss out this weekend for the hosts.

Sheff Utd: Morgan Gibbs-White and Jack O'Connell are expected to miss this weekend's game due to knee injuries.
