Our prediction for this Championship match:
Bristol City and Sheffield United square off against each other at Ashton Gate Stadium in the Championship round 19. The Robins played out a 1-1 draw with Swansea City at the weekend, and it has to be noted that the Swans dominated the match. Important centre-back Kal Naismith remains on the sidelines with injury, as well as Tomas Kalas, who has been out of contention since March.
The Blades, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion. Sheffield United did well to put an end to their six-game winless run, and seeing that they regained a much-needed confidence, away triumph should definitely be considered. Goalkeeper Wes Foderingham is pushing for a start after serving his three-match ban, while Anel Ahmedhodzic misses out through suspension. Rhian Brewster is sidelined with a hamstring problem.
