Sheffield United vs Brentford Predictions: Sheffield United line-up
Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United take on 13th-placed Brentford as they look to extend their 8-game unbeaten run on Wednesday. The Blades are just 2 points behind second-placed Leeds and anything but a win will hurt their chances of direct promotion to the Premier League.
Chris Wilder is arguably the luckiest manager in the Championship right now since his whole squad available for selection. Jake Wright is the only concern for the Blades but he is back in full training. However, he could be short of match fitness.
Probable Sheffield United XI
Manager: Chris Wilder
Dean Henderson (GK)
On loan from Manchester United, the 21-year-old has kept 14 clean sheets so far this season and is Wilder’s first choice.
Chris Basham (CB)
The 30-year-old has missed just 5 games so far this season and has been solid at the back.
John Egan (CB)
The Irishman has played 34 games so far this campaign and is a leader in the defence. He is expected to start on Wednesday.
Jack O’Connell (CB)
Still only 24, O’Connell has been brilliant for the Blades this campaign and will start on the left side of a 3-man defence.
George Baldock (RWB)
The 26-year-old has been solid whenever he has played this campaign and should start again on Wednesday.
Oliver Norwood (CM)
The former Brighton man made his loan deal permanent in January and has been impressive for the Blades this season.
John Fleck (CM)
Fleck has been a mainstay under Chris Wilder and has missed just one game all season. He is expected to continue in central midfield.
Mark Duffy (CM)
The veteran has scored 4 goals and has assisted 6 in 29 games this campaign. His experience will be vital for the Blades on Wednesday.
Enda Stevens (LWB)
Stevens has provided 7 assists so far this season and has been used out of position a number of times. He should start in his preferred left wing-back role.
Billy Sharp (ST)
Sheffield United’s skipper and top scorer this season with 22 goals so far. He has to be at his best until the end of the season if the Blades are to get promoted.
