Sheffield United Championship kick off time vs Sunderland, TV channel, news

Newly promoted Sunderland will be hoping to keep their unbeaten league record intact when they travel to Bramall Lane to take on Sheffield United on Wednesday night.

It’s been a good start to life in the second tier for Alex Neil’s side, who have won once and drawn twice so far in the league in 2022/23, but they will reflect on Draw 2 -2 from Saturday with QPR with disappointment given that they were two goals down until the 86th minute.

R Seny Dieng goalkeeper’s astonishing stoppage-time equalizer was a moment few EFL fans are likely to forget – although Black Cats supporters will probably want to put it out of their minds.

Four points from three games isn’t the start the Premier League-chasing Blades were hoping for, but given they’ve come up against two promotion rivals at Watford and Middlesbrough, Paul Heckingbottom is unlikely to be too disappointed.

Sander Berge is fit and firing in the first weeks of the new campaign, scoring twice in three games, although rumors of him leaving before the end of the current transfer window continue to swirl.

United also have a long injury list to manage but their squad are not short on quality and they will be determined to secure two wins from two at Bramall Lane this season.

Our prediction: Sheffield United v Sunderland

Sunderland have made a confident return to the Championship so far but this is their biggest test yet. Only Fulham and Middlesbrough won more second-tier home games than Heckingbottom’s side last season and they put Millwall to the sword at Bramall Lane earlier this month.

A host of defensive injuries means there could be opportunities for in-form Black Cats attacking duo Ross Stewart and Ellis Simms, particularly with Alex Pritchard having made a fast start to the season, but with Dan Ballard ruled out in due to a broken foot, visitors will be forced to change themselves at the back.

With United still unsure who their first-choice number nine is, it is Berge and Iliman Ndiaye who should worry Sunderland the most.

Our prediction: Sheffield United 2-1 Sunderland (2/15 at bet365)
