Sheffield Utd – Barnsley Preview

  • Sheffield United dropped vital points in their play-off push as they drew 0-0 with Blackpool in midweek, a result that also extended their Championship run to just one win across their prior five outings (D2, L2). Manager Paul Heckingbottom will be hoping that his side can get back on track here in this 66th competitive South Yorkshire derby against Barnsley, a H2H in which they hold a sizeable historical advantage (W27, D22, L16).
  • A boost for United will come with a return to Bramall Lane where the ‘Blades’ have proven sharp this season, as highlighted by their current streak of nine unbeaten league outings here (W6, D3). That run, in which Sheffield United kept seven clean sheets, has helped them concede just 13 home league goals all season, the competition’s joint-second best return!
  • A confidence-boosting 2-0 home Championship victory over Bristol City last time out made it three matches unbeaten for Barnsley (D2) who now sit just two points away from safety. With survival firmly in their sights, the ‘Tykes’ will now turn their attention to avenging a 3-2 loss in the reverse fixture knowing that a win will lift them out of the drop zone, if only for some of Saturday, for the first time since early October.
  • While they may be underdogs to secure a win, what can ignite Barnsley’s hopes is the fact the home side on the day has won only three of the previous 12 H2Hs, with five of those ending in draws. The last three H2Hs also all witnessed five goals scored, so another entertaining, high-scoring clash looks likely!
  • Players to watch: Sheffield United’s on loan midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White has 15 league goal contributions this term (G8, A7) with six of his strikes coming between the 55th and 80th minute. Meanwhile, Barnsley’s Carlton Morris has netted in back-to-back league outings to take his tally to six Championship strikes this campaign, five of which have remarkably come between the 43rd minute and half time!
  • Hot stat: Barnsley are averaging a joint-league low 3.65 corners per Championship match this season.
