Preston North End vs Sheffield United: Top Free Betting Tips

Runaway EFL Championship leaders, Sheffield United, make the trip to Deepdale for their Round 11 festivities. The Blades have a tough task on their hands against Preston North End as nine first-team regulars are nursing injuries.

Sheffield United to Win

Preston are at home for a third successive matchday and it looks likely that their hunt for an elusive win will continue. They have the tough task of ending Sheffield United's seven-match unbeaten streak, a feat that looks out of their reach. The Blades have not conceded in their last two away trips and should have enough in the tank to register their sixth win in seven matches.

Under 2.5 Goals

Add Sheffield United into a match equation and you get goals. The Blades have scored 11 goals in their last five outings, conceding just once. With Preston scoring and conceding an equal two goals, we do not expect a high-scoring conclusion to this meeting.

Both Teams to Score: No

The last meeting at Deepdale saw four goals shared between Preston and Sheffield United. However, it looks unlikely that we will see goals at both ends of Deepdale in this encounter. Preston has impressed at the back but has nothing to show for going forward. On the other hand, Sheffield with 11 goals and just one conceded, adds confidence to the suggestion that attackers from both sides will not prevail in this meeting.

Preston North End vs Sheffield United: Team News and Match Preview

Preston North End

Eight points and eleven positions separate Preston North End and Sheffield United. The hosts have the better defensive record but have nothing to show for going forward. With just three goals scored in their nine league outings, Preston are being hamstrung by their own inabilities in front of the goal.

Sheffield United

Sheffield United have made a strong claim for a return to the Premier League. They have registered six victories, drawing trice and tasting defeat just once. The Blades still have a long way to go but if their attacking unit continues to deliver at the same pace, they should be able to secure an automatic promotion slot with ease.
