Sheffield United vs. Sunderland  Prediction and Match Preview

Sheffield United play host to Sunderland in the Championship on Wednesday evening with both teams having endured a mixed start to the campaign.

However, while the teams have just two victories between them from their opening three matches, they occupy ninth and sixth position respectively in the standings.

Match preview

Rhian Brewster and Oliver McBurnie are both pushing to replace Billy Sharp in the Sheffield United attack.

Given the extent of the Blades’ injury list, changes are expected to be few and far between, although Reda Khadra and James McAtee are both pushing for opportunities.

Dan Ballard will miss out for Sunderland after suffering an ankle injury during the early stages of the QPR game.

Luke O’Nien is expected to deputise in the back three, but Ajibola Alese is also an option after his move from West Ham United.

Barring any more injury issues, the remainder of the team is expected to stay the same.

Sheffield United possible starting lineup:
Foderingham; Ahmedhodzic, Egan, Norrington-Davies; Baldock, Norwood, Doyle, Lowe; Berge; Ndiaye; Brewster

Sunderland possible starting lineup:
Patterson; O’Nien, Batth, Cirkin; Gooch, Neil, Evans, Clarke; Pritchard; Stewart, Simms
