Our prediction for this Championship match:
Sheffield United will look to stay in automatic promotion berth when they take on Stoke City in the Championship round 27. The Blades are on the right track to return to the Premier League, but they need to keep on winning on a regular basis if they are to turn the dream into reality. Experienced attacker Billy Sharp should be recalled to the starting XI after he was rested in the FA Cup triumph over Millwall, while all Ismaila Coulibaly, John Fleck, Rhian Brewster, Norrington-Davies, and Jack O’Connell continue to miss out with injuries.
Meanwhile, the Potters did well to eliminate Hartlepool in the FA Cup round 3, but given their poor displays in back-to-back defeats to Burnley and Preston, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. Jacob Brown should keep his place in the starting line-up after finding the net in the FA Cup triumph, whereas Sam Clucas has yet to overcome a back injury.
