Norwich City vs Sheffield United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in opposite halves of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Norwich continued their recent good run in the Championship with a 1-0 victory away to Bristol City thanks to a James Maddison goal. In midweek, they played Chelsea in an FA Cup Third Round replay and drew 1-1 in regular time (Jamal Lewis with the goal) before going out on penalties.

Sheffield United were last in action on a Friday night as they were held to a 0-0 draw in a Steel City derby with neighbours Wednesday. The draw was probably the fair result in a tight contest that saw both sides struggle to create scoring chances.

The reverse fixture came in mid-September at Bramall Lane with the Canaries coming out on top that day 1-0. Yanic Wildschut got the goal in that game but he has since joined Cardiff on loan.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Six of the last 11 in all competitions at Carrow Road have ended in a draw while three of the last five for Sheffield United in the league have finished all-square so the draw looks the way to play this.

Each of the last five in the league for the Canaries in front of their own fans has seen both teams score while four of the last five for the Blades on the road have done the same so backing the game not only be a draw but a score draw makes sense.

Norwich City Preview

It is now ten points from their last four fixtures for the Canaries who have risen back up to 13th in the table. This represents the start of a tricky looking period with each of their next six against teams above them in the division.

At Carrow Road, they have lost just one of their last six in all competitions with three of these ending in a draw. Their last five league fixtures in front of their own fans have seen both teams score and seven of their last eight.

Norwich have conceded just once in their last four league fixtures and have kept clean sheets in three of those. James Maddison has two in his last two in the league and seven for the season.

Norwich City Team News

Tom Trybull (back), Louis Thompson (Achilles) and Matt Jarvis (ankle) are all doubts.

Sheffield United Preview

It is now three without a victory in the league for the Blades and just one one in their last ten matches. They have dropped to sixth and three of their next four are against sides in the top seven.

Away from Bramall Lane, they are without a win in four but did pick up useful points at Villa Park and the iPro Stadium recently. Four of their last five and seven of their last nine on the road in the league have seen both teams find the back of the net.

Leon Clarke is their leading scorer this season with 15 Championship goals though he has netted just one in his last six. Just one of their seven clean sheets this season has come on the road.

Sheffield United Team News

Ched Evans (ankle) and David Brooks (virus) are doubts while Kieron Freeman (dislocated kneecap) is out for a few more weeks. Paul Coutts (broken leg) is out for the season.
