Blades to leave Royals in relegation trouble

Sheffield United are unbeaten in a dozen games at Bramall Lane and we see that becoming 13 here. The Royals haven't just been grinding out draws in their home games; they've won eight of those 12 matches. Reading meanwhile have won just one of their last 10 home matches. When you then bring the head to head record in the conversation, a Blades win looks even more likely; they have won three of the last four meetings at Bramall Lane between the sides with a combined score line of 9-1 and haven't lost at home to them since 2008!

Don't bank on many goals

Sheffield United might be clear favourites to win this match against Reading but that doesn't mean it will be a game loaded with goals. Sheffield United have gone under the 2.5 mark in each of their last five matches with Reading going south of the all important cut off in three of their past five. The reverse fixture, which took place in November also saw just the solitary goal.

Sheffield United Predicted Lineup

Predicted lineup – Foderingham, Davies, Egan, Baldock, Stevens, Uremovic, Berge, Norwood, Hourihane, Gibbs-White, McBurnie
