Brentford vs Sheffield United

Brentford and Sheffield United are set to square off at the Gtech Community Stadium in a ‘make or break’ Premier League relegation six-pointer.

Despite producing a sensational second-half comeback to hold Aston Villa to a 3-3 draw last weekend, Brentford’s situation in the Premier League standings remains unchanged. Winless in nine consecutive league outings since a 2-0 victory at Wolverhampton in February (D4, L5), Thomas Frank’s men begin this round only three places and four points above the drop zone, highlighting the importance of posting their first top-flight triumph at home since January. The Bees are winless in their last five league games at the Gtech Community Stadium (D2, L3), netting under 1.5 goals on four occasions. Au contraire, they’ve bagged 2+ goals in three of their four most recent home H2Hs.

Meanwhile, the math is simple for Sheffield United – you win and keep faint survival hopes alive, or lose and reconcile with an almost inevitable relegation. Chris Wilder’s side put on a spirited performance at home last weekend, netting a last-gasp equalizer to hold Chelsea to a 2-2 draw. But after stretching their winless league run to seven matches (D3, L4), the Blades come into this round stranded nine points adrift of 17th-placed Nottingham Forest. As the division’s worst travelers (W1, D3, L11), the visitors seem destined to fail in London, where they’ve lost all six top-flight fixtures this term, conceding 2+ goals in each defeat!
