While the hosts have not managed a victory in their last seven matches and find themselves in the relegation zone, the visitors sit eight points clear of third-placed Blackburn Rovers in the Championship standings.

Blackpool’s poor run dates back to late October, as a win away at Coventry City was followed by four consecutive defeats heading into the World Cup break, with Michael Appleton’s side losing to West Bromwich Albion, Luton Town, Middlesbrough and Wigan Athletic to sit 22 points from 21 matches.

On their return to action, Blackpool have been unable to claim a seventh Championship win of the season, firstly playing out a goalless draw with Birmingham City before drawing 1-1 away at Cardiff City through Gary Madine’s second-half equaliser.

Appleton’s side would then travel to take on Hull City on Boxing Day with the game finishing level, and they now remain two points adrift of safety and find themselves desperate to end a seven-game winless streak.

Sheffield United travel looking to extend an impressive run of form in their third bid for automatic promotion, having enjoyed a perfect record since the return from the World Cup break.

United were already in a strong position going into the break, as a victory away at Cardiff City left them in second place with 38 points from 21 matches, and they have returned to action with three more wins from their three games in December.

They firstly claimed a 1-0 victory through Billy Sharps’ first half gola before beating Wigan Athletic 2-1, and would the go on to take on Coventry City on Boxing Day.

James McAtte, Ciaran Clark and Tommy Doyle put them three goals ahead before Viktor Gyokeres pulled one back with 15 minutes to go, but the Blades stood strong to pick up all three points to sit eight points clear of third-placed Blackburn Rovers.
