Sheffield United v Stevenage Odds Betting Preview

League One action Saturday Evening comes from Bramall Lane Stadium featuring hosts Sheffield United versus Stevenage.

The whole game can be seen Live on Sky Sports 2 High Definition, with a scheduled 5:20pm (BST) Kick Off Time.

With two games left to play in League One both of these teams still have everything to play for come Saturday evening.

Sheffield United know that a victory in this game will secure them automatic promotion to the Championship for next season with a game in hand as all three points against Stevenage would put them 4pts clear of third place and arch rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

Stevenage also need to obtain something from the game as a point would secure their place in the end of season play offs as they would be 3pts clear of seventh place Notts County with a game to left to play and have a much superior goal difference.

Sheffield United v Stevenage Team News

Blades manager Danny Wilson will be without both Ched Evans and Will Hoskins but the good news is that midfielder Richard Cresswell should claim his place back in the starting lineup having missed out last weekend with a shoulder problem.

Stevenage manager Gary Smith will likely stick with the same side that has won the previous three matches but striker Chris Beardsley looks like he will again miss out as he continues to recover his match fitness.

The Scouts Match Verdict

Stevenage won the only previous meeting between the two sides 2-1 which came at the beginning of November last year in the reverse fixture and that will no doubt provide the visitors with an abundance of confidence heading into this game, especially with them having won their last three matches on the bounce.

Sheffield United lost their previous game last weekend when losing 1-0 away to Milton Keynes Dons and if arch rivals Sheffield Wednesday win their earlier game against Brentford away then anything but a victory in this game could see Sheffield United having to go into their last game of the season needing a victory to secure automatic promotion.

The fact that Sheffield United will be without both Ched Evans and Will Hoskins is certainly a worrying factor as both players have been in excellent scoring form of late and their absence could prove to be the difference in this game.

However, Stevenage have only won twice away from home in their previous ten matches and with Sheffield United having a pretty decent home record in which they have lost just two of their last ten matches the result of this game could easily go either way and the draw is an attractive betting option.
