Anytime Correct Score 1-0

Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Sheffield United vs Nottingham Forest 

Sheffield United are bidding to make it ninth time lucky after failing in each of their eight previous attempts to earn promotion via the play-offs! A 4-0 win over Championship winners Fulham will have boosted their confidence and after securing their top-six place with a four-match unbeaten league run (W3, D1), they’ll reckon they’re as well prepared as they can be to break their play-off hoodoo.

They could start by adding to five clean sheets across their last six home Championship matches. Although they did concede to Nottingham Forest in March (D 1-1) to continue a run of closely fought encounters between the sides. To point out,  just one of the last six H2H meetings decided by more than a one-goal margin. 

 Matchups at Bramall Lane have been relatively profitable for the ‘Blades’ in recent times though, where they have won three of the last five H2Hs (D2) and not lost since April 2004 (W3, D5).

With their top-six place assured, Forest didn’t finish as strongly as they wanted to (D1, L1). So they’ve got to pick themselves up as they aim to go one better than their previous Championship play-off appearance when they fell at this stage in 2010/11. Yet qualifying via a fourth-place finish has been a remarkable turnaround after spending the early part of the season in the relegation zone.

That stalemate here in March will offer encouragement for a side that was able to rest players before drawing 1-1 with Hull City so they’ll feel fresher than their opponents. With goals potentially at a premium, scoring first could be key, and Forest have only lost once after netting the opener on the road in the league this term (W8, D2).
