Sheffield United v Burton Albion Betting Predictions and Match Preview
Sheffield United host Burton Albion in matchday 35 of the Championship on Tuesday 13th March, 7:45pm at Bramall Lane. The hosts currently sit in 9th place in the table having lost against Fulham 3-0 last time out, while the visitors are in 23rd after their 0-2 loss against Brentford.
Victory at Reading on Tuesday night was Sheffield United’s third success in their previous four Championship matches, thus getting their promotion bid back on track, and our Kickoff predictive algorithm gives them a 54% chance of collecting another three points against a struggling Burton side who have triumphed only twice in 11 matches recently.
Last Season's Score

Team News For Sheffield United
Both Leon Clarke and Jamal Blackman limped out of the win at Reading on Tuesday night, so whether or not either of them are fit to participate in this contest remains to be seen.
Team News For Burton Albion
Tom Flanagan, Ben Turner and John Brayford are all doubtful with calf problems, with Damien McCrory in contention to replace the third member of that trio in the side.
First Goal Scorer Betting Predictions
Billy Sharp (18% chance) boasts five goals in his last five competitive appearances, including two at the Madejski Stadium during the week, so the prolific striker has to be amongst the leading contenders to break the deadlock in this contest.
