    Correct score Sheffield United 1-2 Cardiff 20/1
    First Goalscorer Morgan Gibbs-White 6/1

    Sheffield United drew 1-1 with Bristol City last time out to continue their disappointing recent form. Cardiff went down to a 1-0 loss at home to Luton to make it back-to-back defeats.

    The hosts sat sixth going into the weekend but have won just one of their last five league games. The visitors are also struggling for form having lost each of their last two and three of their last four.

    At Bramall Lane, the Blades are usually strong losing just one of their last 13 but that defeat did come last time out here to Reading. On the road, the Blubebirds lost their last game at Hull but have recent victories at QPR and Reading.

    Billy Sharp is the leading scorer for the Yorkshire outfit this season with 14 goals while Morgan Gibbs-White has three from his last eight starts in all competitions. The Welsh outfit have struggled to find a regular goal scorer with defender Aden Flint leading the way with six goals.

    It is low-scoring in most United games recently with a combined nine in their last seven with the Blades grabbing five of these. Four of the last five Cardiff fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals.

    Sheffield United vs Cardiff: Match Stats

    The Blades are strong favourites to win this but they are struggling for form and have won just one of their last five. Cardiff have won two of their last three at the road including at QPR and at the prices look too big in the draw no bet market.

    Morgan Gibbs-White has been featured more of a striker of late for Sheffield United and his price does not reflect this. He looks good value to score here and he netted in the last United game.
