Albion v Sheffield United match preview

Sheff Utd preview

Valérien Ismaël’s Albion will have their sights set on a second consecutive home win when Sheffield United visit The Hawthorns on Wednesday night (ko 8pm).

The Baggies claimed their first Sky Bet Championship victory of the season against Luton Town at the weekend, with strikes from forwards Callum Robinson and Karlan Grant arriving after Kal Naismith’s own goal.

Close to 25,000 supporters made their long-awaited return to the Shrine to back their boys after an 18-month absence owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.

And after helping their side to a welcome three points on what was the boss’ B71 introduction, the Albion faithful will be hoping Ismaël’s men can collect another win on Wednesday.

Sheffield United will want to swiftly banish last season’s ghost. The Blades, like Albion, endured a difficult 2020/21 campaign and finished bottom of the Premier League.

Slaviša Jokanović, who celebrated his 53rd birthday on Monday, is the new man in charge and he’ll be targeting promotion back to the top flight in his maiden year at Bramall Lane.

United have one point from their opening two games. They were beaten 1-0 at home by Birmingham City on day one, but recovered from that defeat to earn a point on Saturday at Swansea, drawing 0-0.

Jokanović’s Blades will be keen to register their first goal, and their first win of the new season at The Hawthorns.

Classic match

Albion recorded a 3-1 win against Sheffield United at The Hawthorns in January 2010.

Graham Dorrans' penalty got the Baggies up and running before former Czech Republic international Roman Bednar added a tidy second.

The Blades pulled one back through Darius Henderson's spot-kick, but Jerome Thomas sealed the three points late on for the hosts.

Did you know?

Former Blade Callum Robinson could get the opportunity to score for the third straight match on Wednesday night having bagged against AFC Bournemouth and Luton Town.

The one-time Sheffield United forward has scored 11 goals for Albion since his switch from Yorkshire in January 2020.
