Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Reading, Sheffield United will look to cement their spot in top two when they face Luton Town in the Championship round 36. The Blades are determined to return to the Premier League, but manager Paul Heckingbottom must warn his men against complacency. Experienced forward Billy Sharp should be recalled to the starting XI after he was rested in the midweek triumph, whereas defender Anel Ahmedhodzic is back from suspension. All Enda Stevens, Rhian Brewster, Rhys Norrington-Davies, and Jack O’Connell are sidelined with injuries.
The Hatters, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Swansea, but beating Sheffield United at Bramall Lane is easier said than done. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and, taking everything into account, there is a big value in betting on draw. All Dan Potts, Jack Walton, and Luke Freeman are sidelined with injuries, while Reece Burke is a major doubt.
Highlighted Player (Oliver Norwood):
Oliver Norwood is a Reading midfielder who began his youth career at Manchester United. Norwood made his debut for the reserve team against Middlesbrough in November, 2007, but he did not get a chance to play for the first team. After ending his loan spell with Coventry City in 2012, the 180-cm-tall midfielder signed a contract with Huddersfield Town.
Oliver Norwood scored eight goals in 80 league appearances for the club between 2012 and 2014. Later in 2014 he joined Reading for an undisclosed fee and he made his debut for the Royals against Nottingham Forest on 23 August, 2014.
Norwood was born in Burnley, England and he has six caps for England U16 team. He played three games for the U17 team as well, but he then decided to represent Northern Ireland as his heritage is Northern Irish. Norwood made his debut for the Green and White Army on 11 August, 2010, in a 2-0 loss to Montenegro. He replaced Sammy Clingan in the second half of the match.
