Blackpool vs Sheffield United Match Analysis and Prediction

Sheffield United will be looking all the three points to remain in the Champioship playoff places when they travel to face Blackpool on Wednesday.

Blackpool are currently sitting 12th in the standings, and a fourth successive win will move them to within three points of the visitors.

Pressure remains off Blackpool, who have already achieved their main target of avoiding relegation straight back to League One.

However, off the back of three victories on the bounce, the Seasiders cannot be ruled out of the promotion race, particularly with a direct rival standing ahead of them on Wednesday.

Neil Critchley will ensure they remain regarded as underdogs given the size of the clubs around them, but Blackpool have proven on different occasions that they can trouble any team in this division.

The only goal of the game from Gary Madine ensured they defeated Swansea City at the weekend, the target man now joint-top goalscorer with eight goals to his name.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United supporters were left frustrated at missing an opportunity to strengthen their position in the top six, as they lost 4-1 at Coventry City on Saturday.

However, even with two defeats in four matches, Paul Heckingbottom is yet to suffer successive setbacks since his return in November.

Sheffield United are also still averaging two points per game under Heckingbottom, but he will be aware that his team need to take advantage of the upcoming matches against Blackpool and Barnsley to improve their run of form.

The Blades went from producing their best performance of the season to their worst under his tenure, but the discussion will be that defeating Middlesbrough 4-1 is still memorable.

While Sander Berge has scored in successive games, Paul Heckingbottom’s side still need more players to assist the likes of Morgan Gibbs-White and Billy Sharp in the final third.

Blackpool news

While Blackpool have a lengthy injury list, they did not pick up any fresh issues at the weekend, leaving Critchley in line to name an unchanged starting XI.

Shayne Lavery and CJ Hamilton are most likely to be considered for a recall if fresh legs are brought into the squad.

Sheffield United news

While Heckingbottom could make a few changes to his first XI, Iliman Ndiaye will hope to come into the squad, likely replacing Conor Hourihane, while Billy Sharp may rest.

That would see Daniel Jebbison provided with an opportunity after Oliver McBurnie sustained an injury during the game against Coventry City.
