For our Sheffield United vs. Cardiff prediction, we're going for a 2-0 win for the home side.
Sheffield United continue their push to seal their automatic promotion place as they face Cardiff City in the Championship this weekend.
Sheffield United currently sit 2nd in the Championship with twenty-three wins, seven draws and ten losses from forty games this season.
The Blades have had an excellent campaign this time around and are right on course to seal promotion back to the Premier League as they sit five points clear of Luton Town in 3rd with a game in hand.
Despite losing 2-0 to Burnley in their most recent encounter they enter this game in good form overall having won four of their last five encounters.
They were reduced to ten men after just seventeen minutes at Turf Moor so taking anything from that game was always going to be difficult.
Their form at home is very good having won four of their last five games on home soil and eight of their last ten.
Sheffield United should win relatively comfortably here against an opponent struggling greatly in the Championship. It's never that simple, but three points here but mean a huge step towards automatic promotion.
Cardiff City currently sit 21st in the Championship with eleven wins, nine draws and twenty losses from forty games this season.
The Bluebirds have had a tough, tough season in the Championship and find themselves deep in the mire with just six games left to play.
They enter this game in poor form having won one, drawn one and lost three of their last five matches, the most recent of which was a 0-1 defeat at home to Sunderland.
Their record away from home does actually read slightly more positively having won two and lost two of their last four games on the road, but given one of those wins was against lowly Blackpool it still doesn't fill you with much confidence.
Cardiff were beaten 0-1 by Sheffield United when the two sides met in the league back in November, and given they now have to travel to a ground where the home side rarely lose that result seems unlikely to flip on its head.
Cardiff will consider themselves unlucky to have to face the side 2nd in the table at such a crucial point in their survival bid but unfortunately that's the way things work sometimes. They're only one point clear of the relegation zone and anything could happen from here. They will, though, not likely pull further away from the drop zone this weekend.
