Sheffield United have been able to put together their longest unbeaten streak of the campaign after going without a defeat in six games. Sheffield Wednesday are also in the best run of form after putting together seven unbeaten games. However, the visitors have a greater need to pick up three points and stay in the title race. Wednesday’s priority may be to prevent Sheffield United from winning the game and gaining a foothold in the Championship automatic promotion spots. Despite the best efforts of the home team, our preview expects a win for the visitors.

Billy Sharp continues to be the best player in the Championship even if he has failed to score in the last two games for Sheffield United.
