Sheffield United vs Bristol City – Championship: Sill on a remarkable position, but seeing insecurity creeping over them in each round
Sheffield is still in 4th place on the Championship, but they seem to be losing momentum each round that goes by.
The team is currently winless on their last 3 matches, with 2 losses in that period.
On their last match, Sheffield lost uncontestably to Millwall 3-1.
Despite still having a dominant record at home, what bothers me on their current streak is that the two slip-ups happened in front of their own fans, with the defensive disarrangements being determinant for their loss of competitiveness.
The team conceded an average of 3 goals per match in that period. If they don’t want to see a direct rival gain an advantage over them and not get threatened to leave the top 6, they need to react. No matter what.
The manager Chris Wilder will still be without Ched Evans and Kieron Freeman, who are both injured. The core of their last matches should be kept, despite the tough period they are living.
About Bristol City
Bristol City is heading on the opposite direction of their opponents. The team is on a great moment of form! They were only beaten once on their last 6 matches and they are coming off 2 consecutive victories.
Taking advantage of their opponent’s tough period, Bristol even overlapped them on the league table.
Looking for points here will keep Bristol only looking up, already getting a glimpse of a direct promotion to the Premier League.+
On this moment of confidence, their defensive power has been making the difference.
There aren’t any tactical aspects to praise, but making their attacking sector deliver consistently and effectively, their collective confidence increased, leaving them very strong.
Their numbers away from home are consonant to the big dreams they have on this current streak. Trusting their good moment of form, strong away from home, Bristol expects to get some more points here.
The manager Lee Johnson will not make changes to the starting line-up he used on the great win over Middlesbrough during the weekend.
