Sheffield United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Wednesday (19:45) evening game features two sides in the Championship who were in the top four going into this round of fixtures. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Sheffield United will be full of confidence after beating their local rivals Wednesday in an entertaining steel city derby. They had a brace from Leon Clarke (who also made a goal) to thank along with one each from John Fleck and Mark Duffy. Wolves were involved in a tight game at Molineux with Barnsley that saw them needing a 93rd minute to goal to take all three points and that came after conceding a 91st minute equalizer. The goalscorers for the Black Country outfit were Bright Enobakhare and Alfred N’Diaye. The last time these two met at Bramall Lane came in March 2014 and Wolves that won though it is hard to read too much into that. Four of their last five meetings have seen the over 2.5 goals.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This is one of those strange games where you could point to value to be had on both teams for instance you a United side who have won five of their last six in the league and will be full of confidence. On the other hand, you have a Wolves side who have just one defeat in their last nine and ten points from a possible 12 on the road. This looks a tough game to call from match betting so I would look elsewhere for the value. I think over 2.5 goals looks worth an interest as this has happened in three of the last four for the visitors and six of the last ten in all competitions for the home side. Both teams have players who can find the back of the net so I think yes in the both teams to score market also makes sense.

Sheffield United Preview

It has been an excellent start to the season for the Blades with 18 points from nine fixtures and local bragging rights secured by defeating the Owls at the weekend. United have won five of their last six in the league. At home, they won each of their first three but lost last time they played at Bramall Lane going down 1-0 to Norwich. Three of their four games in front of their own fans have seen just one solitary goal. 66% of the goals that the Yorkshire side have scored in the league this season have come in the first-half. Just two of the eight they have conceded have come in games at their own ground.

Sheffield United Team News

Clayton Donaldson and James Hanson (both hamstring) are both doubtful while Caolan Lavery (head) and Richard Stearman (hamstring) are ruled out.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview

Wolves are one of three teams who started the season with 20 points from their opening nine fixtures. They have won three and drawn two of their last five in the league and their only defeat came against fellow top-three outfit Cardiff. On the road, they have taken ten points from their four matches though a trip to Bramall Lane represents their toughest away test yet. They have netted seven of their 15 on the road while conceding just three of their nine on their travels. Diogo Jota is their top scorer this season with five league goals with four of them coming in his last four appearances. 60% of their goals have come in the second-half with 40% in the final 15 minutes.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News

Carl Ikeme and Willy Boly (hamstring) are doubts while Phil Ofosu-Ayeh (hip) has been ruled out until the new year.
