Reading to take at least a point

Sheffield United have done fairly well in recent weeks; they are unbeaten in their last four matches, with two draws and two losses. The Blades have been one of the best teams in the Championship so far; they are second on the table, with 11 points from six matches. On the other hand, Reading have been on fire lately; they've won three games in a row, allowing no goals in that three-game stretch; with their victory at Millwall last weekend, Reading overtook Sheffield United for the top spot on the Championship table. These are the top two teams in the English second tier at the moment, so we should expect a tightly contested fixture. We believe that this match will end in a stalemate, but considering the odds, we should cover Reading as well.

Going north of 2.5 goals

We've already established that Reading did not concede a single goal in their last three games; however, preventing Sheffield United from scoring is no easy task. The Blades have averaged two goals per game in their last four games, with three of those games going over the 2.5 goal mark. We should also point out that four of Reading's last six games saw at least three goals scored; and considering seven of the last nine meetings between Sheffield United and Reading produced at least three goals, this should be a high-scoring affair.

A top of the table clash

This game is not only a somewhat surprising early season, top of the table clash but it's a game that presents both Sheffield United and Reading to make a statement at the sharp end of the standings. Who will find the way to grab what could prove massive win?

Sheffield United's injury woes continued at Luton last weekend, as Wes Foderingham and Rhys Norrington-Davies picked up injuries in the final quarter of the match. These players will join a length list of absentees; the list includes Enda Stevens, Jayden Bogle, Jack Robinson and Billy Sharp, amongst others.

Sheffield United Predicted lineup – Amissah, Basham, Egan, Ahmedhodzic, Baldock, Berge, Norwood, McAtee, Lowe, Ndiaye, McBurnie

Like Sheffield United, Reading have been dealt a bad hand when it comes to injuries this summer; as Yakou Méïté, Liam Moore, Ovie Ejaria, Femi Azeez and Scott Dann are unavailable for selection. However, Paul Ince's men are leading the standings ahead of this trip, so they've should manage without these players.

Reading Predicted lineup

Lumley, Holmes, Hutchinson, Sarr, Loum, Yiadom, Hendrick, Fornah, McIntyre, Ince, João.
