Sheffield United Form


Sheffield United drew 2-2 at Middlesbrough last time out. The stalemate followed a home win over Millwall (2-0) and an away defeat at Watford (1-0).

Sander Berge gave United an early lead over Middlesbrough and the Blades conceded an equaliser later in the first half. A Middlesbrough own goal restored United’s lead before they conceded a second late on.

Inconsistent early Championship form leaves Paul Heckingbottom’s side 9th in the table.
